VOX Releases Night Train V112NT Cab

New speaker cabinet complements Night Train''s distinctive style and tone

Mellville, NY (August 26, 2009) -- VOX Amplification recently debuted the Night Train NT15 guitar amplifier head. This sleek, all-tube amp head took top honors as Best Guitar Head of 2009 in the Musikmesse International Press Awards. Now VOX introduces the V112NT speaker cabinet, designed to provide an aesthetic and musical match for the Night Train NT15 head.

Featuring an open back and a single 12" authentic "Greenback" Celestion 16 Ohm speaker, the V112NT is distinguished by its rounded corners, unique black-on-black fret cloth, and elegant white trim. The look was designed to complement the Night Train's mirrored chrome finish. As with the Night Train NT15 head, the V112NT is meant for musicians on the go, weighing less than 25 lbs and equipped with a sturdy carrying handle.

The VOX V112NT speaker cabinet will be available in September 2009 with a U.S. MSRP of $249.99.

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
