The VOX MV50 High Gain is a miniature amplifier head, which provides a distorted tone suitable for many genres of modern music. Measuring only 5.3 x 3.0 x 3.9”, this amplifier head provides 50W of power and is capable of driving cabinets at 4, 8, and 16 Ohms. The amplifier accomplishes this feat thanks in no small part thanks to an all-analog preamp circuit utilizing Nutube technology, as well as analog components, which reproduce the dynamic character of a traditional British tube amplifier. A Class D power amp complements the preamp, giving the MV50 the ability to produce enough volume for any situation and respond to the nuances of your guitar, as well as the dynamics of your playing technique.
The MV50 High Gain provides one 1/4" guitar input, one 1/4" speaker output, and a 1/4" headphone/line output. Gain, tone, and volume controls are provided to tweak the amp's sound and output. A VU-style meter shows the output levels at any given time, while an impedance switch on the back of the amplifier allows you to raise or lower the resistance when interfacing with compatible cabinets.
To suit a wide variety of speaker cabinets, an EQ switch on the rear of the amp head has been provided, giving you two tone-shaping options. Deep mode puts the emphasis on the low frequency range and is particularly useful with smaller cabinets; Flat mode, on the other hand, allows you to take full advantage of a larger speaker’s inherent tonal characteristics. You'll also notice the three-way Mid Ctrl switch, which allows you to cut the midrange, boost it, or keep it flat.
The 1/4" headphone/line output utilizes a cabinet simulation circuit to offer you the full sound of an amplifier/head combo when routing signal to headphones, DIs, recording interfaces, mixers, PAs, and more.
