VOX MV50 High Gain Amplifier
Heavy metal and rock bands have been using VOX amps for quite some time, cranking the master volume and manipulating the EQ to get that unmistakeable British crunch. However, to tip that tone over, guitarists have sometimes had to use pedals for that extra bone crunching tone. Until now. The team at VOX Amplification have crafted the VOX MV50 High Gain Amplifier
to provide guitarists of all genres, including the metal heads with an indispensable tool for heavier style rock.
The MV50 High Gain is equipped with a specially designed MID Control Switch that effectively boosts or cuts the mid-frequency range to add more versatile playability and deliver a more edgy, higher gain sound that features a boosted high and low end – ideal for the thicker riffs and big lead tones that you need to cut through the mix.

The VOX MV50 Boutique Amplifier
distils all the most coveted sounds of legendary boutique amplifiers sought after by tone snobs and professional guitarists into one highly portable amplifier head.
In this mini amp, you have an entire tonal range to enjoy covering everything from warm and clean valve amp sounds to cutting overdrive where the tubes are screaming at you. The Nutube technology within ensures you have that lush, responsive and warm tone from valve amps but with modern, solid state reliability. The VOX MV50 Boutique Amplifier can supply you with everything you need, whether you want expressive grit-fuelled leads to subtle glass like cleans.
Out of any amp within the MV50 range, the VOX MV50 Boutique Amplifier successfully produces a sense of compression that, until now, traditional vacuum tube amps have only been able to achieve.
We can’t wait to get our hands on them! So, stay tuned for our video reviews.
