Combining renowned VOX modeling technology, flexible battery or AC power, effects and rhythm patterns, the 5-Watt Mini5 Rhythm is ideal for any performer in need of a portable, full-featured amplifier.

Anaheim, CA (January 24, 2013) – VOX Amplification has added the Mini5 Rhythm to its amplifier lineup. Combining renowned VOX modeling technology, flexible battery or AC power, effects and rhythm patterns, the 5-Watt Mini5 Rhythm is ideal for any performer in need of a portable, full-featured amplifier.

The Mini5 Rhythm provides 11 highly accurate amplifier models, starting with the coveted VOX British tone and including classic historic amps, intense hi-gain amps, and rare “boutique” amplifiers. In addition, a clean, non-distorting amp model preserves the natural quality of any acoustic instrument and can also accommodate a keyboard. A total of eight effects are on-board: compressor; chorus; flanger; and tremolo; plus two reverbs and two delays. One effect and one reverb/delay can be operated simultaneously. A Tap Tempo feature makes it easy to set the delay time.

The Rhythm section can be used to help keep the beat, and also as a rhythm trainer for practicing and to accompany jam sessions. It includes 99 rhythms and metronome patterns, broken down by genre.

In addition to an instrument input, the Mini5 Rhythm also offers a separate microphone input allowing the Mini5 Rhythm to function as a portable P.A. system. A convenient AUX input is provided for jamming along to a CD or MP3, or for use with any audio source. The headphone output can be used for private practice, as a line out for recording, or for using the Mini5 as a personal monitor when hooked to larger sound system.

Designed for true mobility, the Mini5 Rhythm can run anywhere for up to 30 hours on six AA batteries; an AC adaptor is included for stationary use.

The VOX Mini5 Rhythm will be available Spring 2013 for a U.S. Street price of $159.99

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
