Overview

Designed with an emphasis on analog, VOX’s MV50 combines classic amplifier design with new and innovative production techniques to produce a miniature amplifier with truly monstrous sound. Boasting an incredible 50 watts of power, this one-pound package serves up serious guitar tone that’s reminiscent of your favorite old tube amps. With speaker and line/headphone outputs, the MV50 is perfect for the stage, at home, or in the studio for direct recording.

The MV50 is equipped an all-analog pre-amp circuit that features Nutube, a revolutionary new vacuum tube that produces authentic tube tone at a fraction of the size. By taking advantage of this incredible new technology, VOX’s engineers were able to design a true, miniature tube amplifier. Beyond the inclusion of Nutube, the pre-amp circuit in the MV50 features a staggering number of analog components that effectively reproduce the dynamic character of a traditional tube amp. Paired with this innovative pre-amp circuit is a reliable and efficient Class D power amp that has been specifically designed for the MV50. From warm, natural cleans to dynamic overdrives, this power amp has been engineered to respond to the nuances of your guitar and, of course, your technique.

Though designed with the compact BC108 in mind, the MV50 is a perfect match for nearly any speaker cabinet. The EQ switch on the back of the amplifier features two distinct settings, FLAT and DEEP. When connected to a small cabinet, such as the BC108, setting the amplifier to the DEEP mode will emphasize the rich low-frequency range and prevent the high frequencies from becoming too pronounced. When connected to a larger, more conventional speaker cabinet, setting the amplifier to the FLAT mode will allow you to take full advantage of the characteristics of the speaker cabinet, without emphasizing or reducing any frequency range.

When it comes time to practice or record, the MV50’s line/headphone out can be directly to a mixer, audio interface, or your favorite pair of headphones. VOX’s design team consulted with highly experienced recording engineers and used only the finest microphones and vintage pre-amps to design the cabinet simulation circuit in the MV50. This cleverly designed circuit allows you to record or practice with serious studio sound anywhere or anytime.

    Comments about Vox MV50 50W AC Guitar Amp Head:

    I bought the AC version, its it an amazing product ...the technology is impressive ..might revolutionize the amp market, it really sounds great both clean and with gain cranked up, great response ..the overdrive tones are great.

    Vox really needs to do add an FX loop on these ..despite the great tones and value I ended up returning and got the Clean version instead. The AC has great gain overdrive tones, however I like me some reverb, I found running my reverb pedal into the front end of this to not sound that good, reverb into gain stage is typically not the way to go, but its the only option here. If they made a deluxe version with top boost (bass and treble controls) and an FX loop I would pay handsomely for one!

    Vox please make with Effects Loop!

    Great little amp head

    By Beatlesfan70

    Comments about Vox MV50 50W AC Guitar Amp Head:

    This little amp head is cool! I originally bought it as a back up but I think it's loud enough to be a primary amp...we'll see. I'm using it through a 2x12 cabinet at 8 ohms (25watts) and it sounds pretty good. The tone control is awesome...very sensitive and changes the tone drastically...I'm having the most fun dialing the tone colors. Can't wait to try it in rehearsal with the band to see if it can be a light weight alternative to big, bulky amp heads. So far it's well worth the $200.

    Yes it sounds like a Vox AC30. Magic??

    Comments about Vox MV50 50W AC Guitar Amp Head:

    I use it as a miked amp in our church. It just sounds so good! Such a sweet voice and warm tone. I play it through 2 EV Force 12s and I am happy. It takes effects well whether analog or my Boss GT 8 processor. I keep the amp set clean and it responds nicely to my TS09 or the ODs on the Boss. The sound color is perfect tube quality , I'm 55 so maybe my hearing is no longer perfect but it's not terrible. And I played it in this mornings service, got a bunch of people commenting and it just responded so much better than the modeling amp I had been using, and it doesn't weigh 120lbs like my Musicman 130. Like I said it weighs a pound so I'm thrilled with it.

    I grabbed this for the Vox tone as a direct out recording box and it sounds great. Could also be a perfect gigging amp head with beautiful amounts of break up and volume.

      Comments about Vox MV50 50W AC Guitar Amp Head:

      I just bought this 2 x 12 Vox cabinet to pair with the Vox MV 50 AC Nutube amp. After a false start attempt at pairing the two due to a faulty 1/4" cable, I discovered that the MV 50 pairs perfectly with this cab. The all-Vox sound is unmistakable and the simple-to-tweak, 3 dial controls had me sending soaring "chime" throughout an empty 1000 seat auditorium in the early hours of a March morning here in Minnesota. The rig goes from clear clean channel tone to dirty, gritty sustain-for-days that's still probably echoing around that vast, empty space. I can't wait to plug it in again and let 'er rip.

          Comments about Vox MV50 50W AC Guitar Amp Head:

          Bought at my local gc. Nice people. Great el84 tone from a hand sized amp.
          Sounds good thru both American an British voiced speakers. Plays well with both my reverb and delay pedals. Plenty of nice crunchy vox gain from 12 o'clock on with the gain knob. Great for jamming and practice but u could probably play out with it in a small setting.
          Thumbs up all the way around.
