Overview

The VOX Night Train first caught musicians' eyes - and ears - with its ultra-cool mirror finish and serious all-tube sound. Now welcome the Lil' Night Train. At under 5 lb., it carries this same minimalist flair and portability to an all new level!

Light enough to take anywhere, the Lil' Night Train lets you enjoy the traditional yet individualistic VOX aura in any musical situation, without ever leaving your signature tone behind! Rehearsing, recording, at a gig, or practicing quietly at home, the Lil' Night Train's all-tube design offers a diverse range of authentic, all-tube VOX sounds. The exterior features a durable mirror-finished chassis, cut in the familiar VOX diamond pattern.

All-tube design for uncompromising sound
Compact and powerful, the Lil' Night Train head boasts vacuum tubes in both the preamp and power amp stages. The preamp uses two 12AX7 tubes, while the power-amp uses one 12AU7, providing that sense of drive, power, and fatness that's obtainable only from vacuum tubes.

Dual purpose output
The Lil' Night Train provides a headphone/line out jack - a feature surprisingly rare on an all-tube amp. This output contains a cabinet simulator that reproduces the resonance and spatial character of a quality speaker cabinet, so you can enjoy real tube amp sound even during night-time practice sessions or when recording directly from your Night Train.

Two-way tone switch
In order to meet the needs of any style or playing technique, the Lil' Night Train lets you choose from two tonal characters. The Bright mode boosts the high-frequency range for the familiar VOX chime; the Thick mode bypasses the tone circuitry, boosting the gain to create a more full and beefy sound.

Features
  • Authentic VOX all-tube tone in a stylish and ultra-compact 2W head
  • 2 - 12AX7 preamp vacuum tubes; single 12AU7 power tube
  • Treble, bass, gain, and volume controls
  • Two-way mode switch: Bright boosts the high frequencies and activates the EQ, Thick bypasses the EQ and boosts the gain for a full, beefy sound
  • Headphone/line out jack is fantastic for recording Lil' Night Train's tube sound directly or for those late-night practicing

Nice lil amp

By Mark Simoni

from Saginaw MI

Comments about Vox NT2H Lil' Night Train 2W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

The Lil Night Train is a sweet sounding amp. The amp has a very smooth transition from clean to breakup, making it easy to dial in the right amount of dirt. There are Gain, Treble, Bass, and Volume (master) controls, as well as Bright/Thick switch. The amp is rated to drive 8 or 16 ohm speakers. There is also a line/headphone output jack which I haven't tried yet. I have been playing it through 1 x 12 and 2 x 12 cabs with good results. The amp does not have the typical Vox chime like my AC15C1 does, but sounds very smooth with just about any drive level. The amp does not have a lot of bottom, but what it has is fairly tight and not flabby. This is not a loud amp, but it takes pedals well, and can be driven into distortion with stock 52 Tele and Strat pups. Plug in a humbucker equipped guitar and it will really start to sing. I got this to use in my studio, and I like it's overdriven sound better than the AC15 and better than an Egnater Rebel 20 I have. I just wish it had a bit better bass response

Perfect practice head

By Thomas Kelkis

from York, PA

Comments about Vox NT2H Lil' Night Train 2W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I practice at crazy hours of the day and night. I wanted tube tone, without being blased out of my practice studio. This 2W Vox head is the answer! Great tone without waking the neighbors.

For what it does it is top notch

By Ed

from Dayton, OH

Comments about Vox NT2H Lil' Night Train 2W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I had not been playing for quite some time, about 15 years, so I bought a Strat and this amp head with an Egnater 1x12 cab. I couldn't be happier with this amp and cab. Because it is only 2W I could turn it all the way up and hear that warm tube sound. It can still get quite loud, and is the perfect amp for playing in small spaces. I'm impressed enough in the Egnater cab that I'm thinking about getting another cab and see how that works out. The guys at Guitar Center did a great job in recommending this setup, I had money and probably would have spent quite a bit more if they had recommended something else.
