Designed with an emphasis on analogue, VOX's MV50 Rock 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 favourite old tube amps. With speaker & line/headphone outputs, the MV50 is perfect for the stage, at home, or in the studio for direct recording.
The ideal companion for the MV50, the BC108 is a compact, portable cabinet that is designed to enhance the low-frequency range to ensure rich, full guitar tone at any volume. The specially designed 8 inch speaker is mounted from the front, allowing for clearer tone and a wider dispersion of sound. While compact and lightweight, the BC108 still offers plenty of volume and is perfect for at-home practice.
Founded in 1957, VOX has designed a number of unique and innovative products, including the iconic AC30. Making its debut in the 60th anniversary year of VOX, the MV50 is a revolutionary amp that is destined to be remembered amongst VOX's most inventive products. It's so compact that at first glance it looks like an accessory, and its sophisticated appearance could earn it a place as interior decor, yet the sound it produces is monstrous. Rest assured, in this small package lies analogue circuitry, including revolutionary Nutube technology for incredible, authentic tube amp tone. Boasting 50W of power, the MV50 produces serious guitar sound that rivals conventional tube amps. With the MV50 you can harness the sound of a true tube amp at home, in the studio, or on the stage.
Preamp Driven By Nutube, The Revolutionary New Vacuum Tube
Nutube is a revolutionary new vacuum tube that has been met with much acclaim and adoration since its introduction in 2015. The MV50's unique analogue preamp design incorporates the Nutube to achieve authentic tube amp tone. Vox's engineers took full advantage of this incredible new tube technology to design a true, low power, low voltage miniature amplifier. While they may have shrunken the size of an amplifier, rest assured that true tube amplifier sound is alive and well.
Three Distinctive Voices: Clean, AC, and Rock
Guitarists of different styles and different genres prefer vastly different guitar tones. The MV50 is available in three versatile models that aim to serve players of all styles. This is the 'Rock' model which delivers aggressive high gain tones.
A Design Philosophy With An Obsessive Insistence On Analogue
The MV50's circuit was designed with an emphasis on analogue and uses discrete components throughout its construction. Starting with the Nutube, all circuits consist of a staggering number of analogue components. The MV50 also incorporates specially designed circuits with a variable operating point in order to more accurately reproduce the dynamic character of a traditional tube amp. The result of this unique circuit design is genuine guitar tone reminiscent of the great tube amps of the past.
Reproduces The Dynamics And Feel Of A Classic Tube Amp
The MV50 features a quiet, reliable and efficient class D power amp. Specifically designed to interact with the unique circuit of the MV50, this power amp faithfully amplifies the character of the vacuum tube sound that's generated by the Nutube equipped pre-amp circuit. The power amp design of the 'Rock' model will even reproduce the varying load that is distinctive of vacuum tube power amps. This circuit is crucial to the dynamic character of a vacuum tube amp, and is responsible for the natural sounding overdrive, its sensitivity to the nuances of your picking, and its fast response. The MV50 retains this design philosophy and provides an authentic playing experience.
EQ Switch Ensures Optimal Sound For The Size Of Your Cabinet
When using a smaller sized cabinet, your tone tends to suffer from the loss of low-end and accentuation of high frequencies. When connected it to a small-sized cabinet, such as VOX's new BC108, you can set the EQ switch to DEEP mode to retain a rich low-frequency range and prevent the high frequencies from taking becoming too pronounced. To accommodate connecting a large speaker cabinet, such as a conventional cabinet containing four 12-inch speakers, Vox have also provided a FLAT mode for the EQ switch. This gives you sound that takes full advantage of the characteristics of your speaker cabinet without impairing the MV50's potential.
Cabinet Simulator For Direct Recording
Since the MV50 also provides line/headphone output, it can be connected directly to a mixer or audio interface, allowing it to be used as a recording amp. The MV50 also features a cabinet simulator circuit that accurately reproduces the characteristics of a cabinet and the air it moves. This cabinet simulation was based on the techniques of experienced engineers using highly regarded microphones and the most coveted vintage mic pre-amps, which means you can record with serious studio sound in any environment.

As the final component of your rig, the speaker cabinet has a considerable impact on your guitar sound. Having a high quality, well-designed cabinet that pairs well with your amplifier of choice is a crucial consideration and can drastically improve your tone.
Based on VOX's unique design philosophy, the Black Cab series delivers unprecedented flexibility and sound quality. The cabinet structure has been meticulously considered in every detail, including carefully selected speaker, and a simple design in basic black. With the Black Cab series, you can take full advantage of your guitar amp head's potential and perform with the best sound.
Speaker Cabinets That Can Be Used Anywhere With Any Guitar Head
The compact BC108 features a single 8-inch speaker, and is intended for uses such as personal practice. Lightweight and compact, you can easily carry it wherever you need. It is a great choice for taking to your rehearsal studio or to a small live performance venue.
Speaker And Cabinet Structure That Enhances Low-Frequencies
For the BC108, Vox selected an 8-inch speaker to keep the cabinet light and portable. The speaker cabinet is also more compact, but they have fundamentally re-thought the entire design to ensure that low-frequency response remains excellent. One of the elements that determines the limit of low-frequency reproduction is F-zero (f0: the lowest resonant frequency), so they are utilising a newly developed speaker that lowers this as far as possible. The result is a speaker that, in spite of its small size, can deliver ample low-frequency sound. In order to take full advantage of the lows from this speaker, the cabinet has been newly designed a with a unique semi-open-back structure. While compact and light-weight, the cabinet has plenty of volume and delivers a rich and well-rounded low-frequency range.
Additionally, the semi-open-back structure with an oval port ensures tight low-frequency sound that retains a sense of quality. The result is an overall 'forward-projecting' sound.
Jacks Provided To Allow Parallel Connection
Two of these speaker cabinets can be connected in parallel. A single unit allows up to [email protected] ohms output, and connecting two units allows up to [email protected] ohms output for even greater volume. You might use one cabinet for everyday practicing, and take along two cabinets for rehearsal or live performance, connecting them in parallel when you need to play with more volume.
