Vox Introduces the Mini Superbeetle Bass

A reissue of a classic model from the British invasion.

Melville, NY (July 17, 2019) -- Inspired by the legendary rig used during the British Invasion, VOX Amplification has announced the Mini SUPERBEETLE Bass; a tribute to VOX’s iconic 1960’s sound. With Nutube-equipped analog preamp circuit and on-board compressor and fuzz, this remarkable amp delivers powerful bass tones that have to be heard to be believed.

The Mini SUPERBEETLE bass comes equipped with a matching speaker cabinet, built with a closed back and bass reflex structure to provide rich, low frequency-response. It can also be paired with nearly any type of extension cabinet, a significant feature making this phenomenal bass amp even more userfriendly.

“The Mini SUPERBEETLE Bass has just as many unique features as our Guitar version; revolutionary technology, and an iconic design that pays homage to one of the greatest bands that’s ever played the VOX brand. The bass model is unique, fun, and perfectly complements any vintage collection,” says Director of Guitar Brands, Brian Piccolo.

The VOX Mini SUPERBEETLE bass features a headphone/line out jack and powers 50W output while still maintaining a lightweight and compact feel. It will be available July 2019 for $379.99.
