      Vox MV50 50w Rock Guitar Amplifier

      MV50 Group

      What Vox have to say:

      Founded in 1957, VOX has designed a number of unique and innovative products, including the iconic AC30. Making its debut in the 60th anniversary year of VOX, the MV50 is a revolutionary amp that is destined to be remembered amongst VOX's most inventive products. It's so compact that at first glance it looks like an accessory, and its sophisticated appearance could earn it a place as interior decor, yet the sound it produces is monstrous. Rest assured, in this small package lies analog circuitry, including revolutionary Nutube technology for incredible, authentic tube amp tone.

      Main Features:

      • Only 500 grams (1.1lbs)! An ultra-compact amp head that you can easily carry in one hand
      • Monstrous sound with 50W of output power, all in an unbelievable size
      • Equipped with an analog preamp driven by Nutube, the new vacuum tube that shrinks the size of conventional tubes, but retains the tone
      • Three distinct amplifier voices are offered: Clean, AC, and Rock
      • MV50's circuit design was meticulously crafted to closely resemble classic analog circuitry
      • Equipped with a Class D power amp for quiet, efficient and reliable performance
      • EQ Switch adds or cuts low-end for pairing with a variety of cabinets
      • Line/headphone out with cabinet emulation for direct recording or performance

      • An ideal match with VOX's new speaker cabinets, the BC108 and BC112
      Nutube Technology

      Nutube Technology

      Nutube is a revolutionary new vacuum tube that has been met with much acclaim and adoration since its introduction in 2015. The MV50's unique analog preamp design incorporates the Nutube to achieve authentic tube amp tone. Vox's engineers took full advantage of this incredible new tube technology to design a true, low power, low voltage miniature amplifier. While we may have shrunken the size of an amplifier, rest assured that true tube amplifier sound is alive in well.

      Nutube, similar to a conventional vacuum tube, has an anode grid filament structure, and operates exactly as a triode vacuum tube. Also similar to a vacuum tube, it creates the same characteristic rich overtones. By applying their vacuum fluorescent display technology, Noritake Itron Corp., a Noritake Co. Ltd affiliated company, have devised a structure which achieves substantial power saving, miniaturization, and quality improvements when compared with a conventional vacuum tube.

      A tone for everyone!

      Guitarists of different styles and different genres prefer vastly different guitar tones. The MV50 is available in three versatile models that aim to serve players of all styles. The Clean model provides a natural, undistorted sound with plenty of headroom. The AC model serves up the classic chime and distinctive crunch of a VOX AC30, while the Rock model delivers more aggressive high gain tones. Choose the MV50 model that suits your style, or collect all three!

      MV50's power amp design reproduces the dynamics and feel of a classic tube amp

      The MV50 features a quiet, reliable and efficient class D power amp. Specifically designed to interact with the unique circuit of the MV50, this power amp faithfully amplifies the character of the vacuum tube sound that's generated by the Nutube equipped pre-amp circuit. In addition, the power amp design of AC30 and Rock models will even reproduce the varying load that is distinctive of vacuum tube power amps. This circuit is crucial to the dynamic character of a vacuum tube amp, and is responsible for the natural preliminary sounding overdrive, its sensitivity to the nuances of your picking, and its fast response. The MV50 retains this design philosophy and provides an authentic playing experience. On the Clean type only, we've omitted this circuit in order to increase headroom, reduce distortion and supply the ultimate in clean sound.

      EQ switch ensures optimal sound for the size of your cabinet

      When using a smaller sized cabinet, your tone tends to suffer from the loss of low-end and accentuation of high frequencies. When connected it to a small-sized cabinet, such as VOX's new BC108, you can set the EQ switch to DEEP mode to retain a rich low-frequency range and prevent the high frequencies from taking becoming too pronounced. To accommodate connecting a large speaker cabinet, such as a conventional cabinet containing four 12-inch speakers, we've also provided a FLAT mode for the EQ switch. This gives you sound that takes full advantage of the characteristics of your speaker cabinet without impairing the MV50's potential.

      Cabinet simulator is ideal for direct recording

      Since the MV50 also provides line/headphone output, it can be connected directly to a mixer or audio interface, allowing it to be used as a recording amp. The MV50 also features a cabinet simulator circuit that accurately reproduces the characteristics of a cabinet and the air it moves. Our cabinet simulation was based on the techniques of experienced engineers using highly regarded microphones and the most coveted vintage mic pre-amps, which means you can record with serious studio sound in any environment.

      Cab Options

      Perfect Pairing

      The BC108 is a small cabinet featuring an 8-inch speaker, and is an ideal companion for the MV50. With its carefully selected speaker and a meticulously designed semi-open-backed structure, it delivers a strong, punchy sound that you won't believe comes from such a small cabinet. The BC112 cabinet is loaded with a 12" Celestion V-Type speaker and features semi-open back construction, an oval port that delivers punchy lows, bracing to increase cabinet resonance, and a front-mounted speaker for improved projection. Both units can handle up to 25W at 8 Ohms output, and cascade-connecting two units will allow 50W at 4 Ohms, allowing the full potential of the MV50 to be unleashed.
