Clean Tube Tone in the Palm of Your Hand

The Vox MV50 Clean mini electric guitar amplifier head ushers in a new level of professional-quality tones and convenience for guitarists chasing high-headroom clean tones. The MV50 Clean utilizes a Nutube in the preamp section for true tube performance, sound, and feel. 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 a tone that works as well for clean styles as it does as a pedal platform, the MV50 Clean is the mini guitar head of your dreams.

True clean tone

Vox knows a thing or two about great tube clean tones. Their combo amplifiers have been one of the defining clean guitar amps since the 1960s. It's with that in mind that they voiced their MV50 Clean mini electric guitar amplifier head. Thanks to the tube-based preamp, this tiny powerhouse delivers rich and sparkling sounds with a huge amount of headroom. This amp is a perfect tonal partner if you're in need of an amp for jazz, old-school country, or other cleaner styles. And it's an ideal option for players needing a neutral pedal-platform amp.

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 Clean 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 Clean 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.

Vox MV50 Clean Mini Electric Guitar Amplifier Head Features:

  • 50-watt mini guitar amplifier with real tube tone
  • Unbelievably small and lightweight
  • Nutube technology supplies a true tube-amp performance
  • Class D power section keeps the weight down while pushing plenty of power

DANG THIS THING HAS GOT ALL THE POWER YOU'LL EVER NEED!!

I opened the box and laughed when I pulled it out. Thought there was no way this tiny thing could push 50watts and sound good doing it. I WAS SO WRONG!! I put my 2x12 cab on 4 ohms so I could see if it would get as loud as my Orange Micro Terror. At 1/3 volume it was blowing it away and when I wasn't picking a string, PERFECT SILENCE!! When they say clean they mean it. With the tube tech built into this thing it has the dynamics that you'd expect from a full sized tube amp when playing. The bass and treble controls actually control the tone very well which most amps this size always seemed to have a hard time doing. A little goes a long way!! I can get the tones I want with this without running through my 7band eq. In fact, a lot of pedals are going bye bye with this. I can use my MXR for metal, my tube overdrive for blues, and my reverb and delay pedals. Finally down to the 4 pedal situation I always wanted for the basics. Now I can get just what I want for effects because this little beauty of an amp handles pedals VERY well. I can actually say I want to buy 3-5 of these amps just in case they ever stop making them. Second time in my life I have said that about guitars or equipment. First was my Banshee FR and now this amp. The attenuation does just what it says and the DEEP and FLAT switch does the same too. It seems to be built very sturdy but I wish they would have put the power in somewhere on the side so it doesn't interfere with those switches in the back. It will be rare you need to use them but it is the only thing I can't rave about. I won't even take off points because they are a set and forget type switch for the most part anyway.

Nothing short of amazing

I bought this as a backup for a Tweed Vibrolux 5F11 that I use on small gigs. I received the head from Sweetwater and tested it out and was blown away. While I will keep the Tweed Vibrolux, I am seriously considering selling some boutique amps that I have that are just gathering dust.

SMALL BUT POWERFUL

HOW THEY CAN GET ALL THAT TONE AND POWER INTO THIS LITTLE SHELL IS INCREDIBLE. IT SOUNDS GREAT BY ITSELF AND HANDLES PEDALS WITH NO PROBLEM. I HAD NO IDEA THAT IT WAS SO SMALL IN SIZE UNTIL I OPENED THE BOX AND THOUGHT WHERE IN THE HECK IS IT. I MEAN THIS LITTLE BEAST IS ABOUT THE SIZE OF THE PALM OF MY HAND. UNBELIEVABLE TILL YOU SEE IT FOR YOURSELF IN PERSON. I AM ASSUMING THAT VOX HAD IN MIND, THOSE WHO MIGHT WANT TO FIT THE MV50 ONTO THEIR PEDALBOARDS AND THEN ALL THAT YOU WOULD NEED IS A GREAT SPEAKER CABINET AND YOU ARE ALL SET. OH, I MIGHT ADD THAT TO MY EARS, THIS THING IS DEAD QUIET. I DON'T HEAR THAT STATIC SOUND THAT SOME AMPS MAKE EVEN WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR GUITAR VOLUME COMPLETELY TURNED OFF. VOX DID A GREAT JOB WITH THIS ONE. HAVE ONLY HAD IT FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS NOW BUT LOOKS LIKE IT IS BUILT LIKE A TANK. I AM POWERING 2 JET CITY 1X12 CABS TO PRODUCE THE 8 OHMS AND AT HALF POSITION THIS THING IS LOUD. HOPE THIS HELPS OTHERS. DON'T THINK ABOUT IT TOO LONG OR THEY WILL BE OUT OF STOCK OR WHEN THE SECRET GETS OUT, THE PRICE WILL GO UP. TRY ONE. YOU WILL BE SURPRISED!

Prit-teeee cool.

The Vox MV50 has some good stuff going on. I like the fact that you can practically put it in your pocket and power any speaker cab. A 16ohm cab is not going to be that loud, but great tone at a bedroom volume. I tried it on an 8 ohm cabinet and it could definitely stand up to a laid back drummer in the right room, and could absolutely be mic'd for a live show. Plugged into my 4ohm x 2 Eminence wizard (103db) cab, it was ear-drum-blastingly loud! Once again, Great tone. I chose the "Clean" for more headroom and so I could use effects liberally. When you do decide to really push the "clean" model, it will break up a bit, and that's just alright. My own overdrive pedal blends with that nicely. I think the handle on top and the VU meter are weird/unecessary, but whatever. I have a small gripe about the power adapter plug. It's a 90 degree elbow that plugs into the back. If you point it to the left or right, it obstructs either switch in the back (power switch or EQ). It's just a little awkward. Overall, I think it sounds great. It's crystal clear with excellent dynamics and tone. The portability and flexibility is fantastic. I wonder if the Nutube is going to show up in more places.
