Vox MV50 50 Watt Amplifiers


We’ve been waiting for the new Vox MV50 amps since they appeared at last winter’s NAMM show. They’ve arrived and they are impressive! The MV50 is an all new amp head and cabinet combination in three flavours – AC, Clean, and Rock. The AC simulates the tones of a classic Vox AC30, the Clean version stays clean all the way up, and the Rock version saturates pretty quickly.

These amps use a Vox NuTube in the preamp section and delivering 50 watts into 4 ohms, down to 25 watts into 8 ohms and 12.5 to 16 ohms. The NuTube, being an actual vacuum tube, provides real tube response.

Because the output section is transistor, speaker loads aren’t necessary and you can use it without the cabinet, and use either headphones or a line out into a recording device or soundboard. The Line Out also carries speaker emulation.


These are great little amps, serving up far more output power than their size hints and that’s why one of the photos has the MV50 with a Marshall 50 watt half stack and a Traynor 120 watt compact bass amp. The MV50 amp head itself weighs about one pound (half a kilo) so it’s trivial to carry around. Watch the Vox YouTube video, read the review by Nevin Douglas in our newsletter, and come try one for yourself!

We’re selling these for $379 Canadian, with the BC108 8 inch speaker cabinet. Without the cabinet, it’s $279 Canadian.
