Designed with an emphasis on analog, VOX’s MV50 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 favorite 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 MV50 is equipped an all-analog pre-amp circuit that features Nutube, a revolutionary new vacuum tube that produces authentic tube tone at a fraction of the size. By taking advantage of this incredible new technology, VOX’s engineers were able to design a true, miniature tube amplifier. Beyond the inclusion of Nutube, the pre-amp circuit in the MV50 features a staggering number of analog components that effectively reproduce the dynamic character of a traditional tube amp. Paired with this innovative pre-amp circuit is a reliable and efficient Class D power amp that has been specifically designed for the MV50. From warm, natural cleans to dynamic overdrives, this power amp has been engineered to respond to the nuances of your guitar and, of course, your technique.

Though designed with the compact BC108 in mind, the MV50 is a perfect match for nearly any speaker cabinet. The EQ switch on the back of the amplifier features two distinct settings, FLAT & DEEP. When connected to a small cabinet, such as the BC108, setting the amplifier to the DEEP mode will emphasize the rich low-frequency range and prevent the high frequencies from becoming too pronounced. When connected to a larger, more conventional speaker cabinet, setting the amplifier to the FLAT mode will allow you to take full advantage of the characteristics of the speaker cabinet, without emphasizing or reducing any frequency range.

When it comes time to practice or record, the MV50’s line/headphone out can be directly to a mixer, audio interface, or your favorite pair of headphones. VOX’s design team consulted with highly experienced recording engineers and used only the finest microphones and vintage pre-amps to design the cabinet simulation circuit in the MV50. This cleverly designed circuit allows you to record or practice with serious studio sound anywhere or anytime.

More Info

Like nothing you’ve ever seen! MV50 is a truly innovative approach to amplification.

Don’t be fooled by its size and looks, the MV50 is a new concept in guitar amplification. 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 analog preamp design incorporates the Nutube to achieve authentic tube amp tone. Our engineers took full advantage of this incredible new tube technology to design a true, low power, low voltage miniature amplifier. While we may have shrunken the size of an amplifier, rest assured that true tube amplifier sound is alive and well.

A design philosophy with an obsessive insistence on analog

The MV50’s circuit was designed with an emphasis on analog and uses discrete components throughout its construction. Starting with the Nutube, all circuits consist of a staggering number of analog 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.

MV50’s power amp design 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. In addition, the power amp design of “AC30” and “Rock” models 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. On the “Clean” type only, we’ve omitted this circuit in order to increase headroom, reduce distortion and supply the ultimate in clean sound.

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, we’ve 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 is ideal 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. Our 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.

A perfect match for VOX's new speaker cabinets, the BC108 and BC112

The BC108 is a small cabinet featuring an 8-inch speaker, and is an ideal companion for the MV50. With its carefully selected speaker and a meticulously designed semi-open-backed structure, it delivers a strong, punchy sound that you won’t believe comes from such a small cabinet.

Use two BC108s to get the full 50W and really annoy the neighbours!

The BC112 cabinet is loaded with a 12” Celestion V-Type speaker and features semi-open back construction, an oval port that delivers punchy lows, bracing to increase cabinet resonance, and a front-mounted speaker for improved projection.

Use two BC112 cabinets to get the full 50W and get heard above the drummer!


Both units can handle up to 25W@8Ω output, and cascade-connecting two units will allow 50W@4Ω, allowing the full potential of the MV50 to be unleashed.
