What Vox have to say
Two new models have been added to the MV50 series lineup, MV50 High Gain & MV50 Boutique. Equipped with the next-generation vacuum tube Nutube, and featuring a stunningly light-weight design of only 540 grams (1.1 lbs.), these amp heads boast a high 50W of output power. As its name implies, the sound of the MV50 High Gain is optimized for high gain, while the MV50 Boutique distills the sound of a legendary boutique amp coveted by guitarists. With even more variations, the MV50 series is expanding its offering and showing no signs of slowing down.

- In spite of its size, monster-class sound power with 50W output.
- The preamp features Nutube, the new vacuum tube that utilizes vacuum fluorescent display technology.
- Two new amplifier models: High Gain and Boutique.
- Analog circuitry based on a pure design philosophy.
- EQ switch provides sound that's the perfect match for the size of the cabinet being used.
- Speaker emulated line/headphone output jack mimics the know-how of a recording engineer.

MV50 Boutique, a rebirth of legendary boutique amp sounds!
The MV50 Boutique distills the sound of legendary boutique amps coveted by pro guitarists. It covers the range from warm and clean to cutting overdrive that's ideal for expressive leads, and responds naturally to the subtle nuances of your playing. Out of all the MV50 models, the MV50 Boutique produces a sense of compression that is most typical of a traditional vacuum tube amp.
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, Rock, Hi-Gain and Boutique 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.
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.
