Heavyweight AC Tone in the Palm of Your Hand

The MV50 AC mini electric guitar amplifier head ushers in a new level of professional-quality tones and convenience for guitarists chasing classic Vox tones. The MV50 AC is voiced to deliver 50 watts of the same chime and harmonically rich grind as your favorite AC30 tones and utilizes a Nutube in the preamp section for true tube performance. But the kicker is that it does it all in a package that weighs just over a pound and fits in the palm of your hand. If you're looking for the tone that has backed artists such as the Beatles, John Scofield, and Queen, the MV50 AC is the mini guitar head of your dreams.

True AC tone

You can expect to enjoy the same great British-influenced tones from the MV50 AC mini amp head as Vox's larger and legendary all-tube combo amplifiers. It has been carefully voiced to deliver everything from bell-like clean tone to the all-out rock assault of an AC30 cranked to the max. No matter where you set the simple 3-knob controls, you'll revel in the Brit tones that helped define the sound of rock 'n' roll.

Nutube technology

In a world of great-sounding digital options, it's always refreshing to find groundbreaking technology that still adheres to the "tubes are better" mentality. Vox knows this as well as any amplifier company and has been integrating real tube tone into their digital and analog amps for years. The MV50 AC 50-watt mini electric guitar amplifier head follows suit with a Nutube located in its preamp section. This delivers the punchy feel and rich overtones you'd expect from anything bearing the Vox logo. These MV50 amplifiers are definitely creating a buzz around Sweetwater.

Conveniently small footprint

For an electric guitar amplifier head that pushes 50 watts of power, the Vox MV50 AC is about as small as they come. By utilizing their Nutube technology and a Class D power section, Vox is able to cram enough power and tone into this amp to power any electric guitar speaker cabinet, even at performance volumes. Not gigging lately? The cab-emulated line/headphone output sounds fantastic for practice, at-home playing, and recording. And Vox puts it all into an amp head that comes in at just a touch over a pound.

So Good.

I've been reading about this amp and the NuTube technology since NAM. Watched all the videos and couldn't wait to get my hands on one. Got my name on the list and bought mine within minutes of getting the notification from Sweetwater. First I was shocked at how small the thing is. Watching the videos doesn't really put it in scale. It will literally fit in the palm of you hand. I tried it with two different cabinets, a 2-12" cab with Eminence speakers and a 2-10" cab with Jensen speakers. I just could not get over how good this thing sounds. Tried it with my Tele, Strat, P90 Les Paul, and P90 ES-339. All sounded terrific. The controls are very responsive. The tone control is pretty impressive. Just a slight twist one way or the other changes the color of the amp. It's not your classic high end roll off type of tone control. The gain is classic Vox AC sounding. From clean to chimey dirt, to top boost sizzle. It's really well done. The volume control does what it should, although there very little difference between what would 6 and 10 (or 11 if you're so inclined). But it's plenty loud, more power than I would ever need for my little recording set up. On the back of the amp there are some tiny switches for power, speaker impedance, and such. My only criticism for this amp is the power switch. With it being so small it's a bit of pain getting to the switch on the back of the amp. You pretty much have to turn the thing around to find it because the power adapter plug has a 90 degree angle on it and it can cover up the switch. I would highly suggest they find a way to get that switch relocated to the front of the amp if at all possible. I haven't tried the Line out/Headphone port yet, but hoping the cab emulation is as good as is claimed. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the tone and versatility of this amp. I could see tossing it into a gig bag and running it through a PA for small gigs instead of lugging an amp only to have the sound guy tell me to turn down to the point that I can't hear the amp anyway. A great buy. If you are at all intrigued and not afraid of new things, buy one. You'll love it.

Technology is amazing. Who would've thought just a few years ago that something you could fit in your coat pocket would produce this kind of sound quality.
