An impressive 50 watts of power in a one-pound package.

Melville, NY (January 12, 2017) -- The ultimate modern amp, designed with an emphasis on analog, VOX’s MV50 combines classic amplifier design with new and innovative production techniques (Nutube) 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, available in AC, Clean and rock models, the MV50 is perfect for the stage, at home, or in the studio for direct recording.

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 Nutube to achieve authentic tube amp tone. VOX engineers took full advantage of this incredible new tube technology to design a true, low power, low voltage miniature amplifier. From warm, natural cleans to dynamic overdrives, this power amp has been engineered to respond to the nuances of the user’s guitar and, of course, technique.

With a retro-chic design, a mirror-finish front and VU meter, the MV50 is so compact that at first glance it looks like an accessory, yet the sound it produces is massive. The MV50 is a perfect match for VOX's new speaker cabinet, the BC108. The BC108 is a small cabinet featuring an 8-inch speaker. With its carefully selected speaker and a meticulously designed semi-open-backed structure, it delivers a strong, punchy sound.

Available in the Spring of 2017, the MV50’s will be $199.99, and the BC108 for $99.99. Both will be on display at the Korg USA Inc. booth #6440 in Hall A.

Switching between contrasting reverb voices doubles the fun.

Smart, versatile, interactive and rangeful controls. Intuitive. Capable of great contrasts between A/B presets. Sturdy enclosure. Effective damping controls tame twee high-octave overtones.

Can’t switch reverb voices as you switch presets. Enclosure is big relative to depth of functionality. No-fun styling.

Fender and reverb go together like gumbo and rice. Historically, the spring tanks in the company’s amplifiers and tube-driven outboard units have defined the Fender reverb sound. But in 2018, when Fender released the Marine Layer digital reverb, it did not include a spring reverb emulation. The new Dual Marine Layer doesn’t have a spring emulation either. Instead, it’s brimming with sounds and functions well-suited for less retro-reverb expressions, including thick chorus textures and shimmer reverb, and has a soft-relay sustain switch that enables momentary creation of ambient beds. It’s also capable of some very classy, subdued reverb colors, plus a few that can effectively stand in for spring and plate sounds in a pinch.
