    Anybody own or tried that model ? Reviews are good and I don't need another amp. But I'm getting one for 150 Canadian buckaroos.

    If it sounds as good as the Boutique (Dumble) amp models on their modeling amps, then It'll be a keeper. But, as with the other MV50 amps, it'll sound a million times better with the 112 cab than the 1x8 one.

    I'm just getting the head for that price and it'll be played through either a 2X10" or 2X12" cab. I also have a 1X12" empty cab lying around, I could eventually get a speaker for it.

    Ooola fcknlala !

    That tiny thing is a monster and loud, real loud. I don't mean loud for a small amp, I mean LOUD ! Maybe as loud as my AD60VT !

    There is a real wide tonal range with the single knob and gain goes from squeaky cleans to fat roaring OD in a non linear fashion. From none to 2/3rd of the way it is nicely progressive, then the last 1/3rd just blows you away.

    I think I'll have some fun with this ant amp. I only played it throught the 2X12 for now. I'll try the 2X10 later and then a 1X12.

    Vox is really killing it with all their amps. The new VX50GTV, which is the replacement for the great sounding VX2, now has a Nutube in it, and it's 50 watts and only $229. I wish that one of my local dealers would get it so I could try it, as it looks very promising. on paper.

    If it had reverb (yeah I know, pedal) it could very well be the only amp I play.

    ... for now.

    Haven't tried pedals with it yet, but I feel it will take them well.

    Any idea what kind of 12" speaker you would be hunting for your empty cab? I'm currently rearranging the way some of my speakers/cabs are configured.

    I recall having a Celestion G12T-100 lying in a box somewhere. It was in that empty cab before.

    By chance have you ever played a micro terror? I am curious as to differences in tone

    Yep, I did have one for a while. Didn't do it for me, too linear, one trick pony. It was actually played through this same 1X12 cab.

    This thing is way more versatile and rich sounding. More headroom too and WAY louder. That's the Boutique model. No idea how the other models do though, but I suspect they fill their niche. I'm not a metal player, so the gain on this one is plenty enough for me.

    If I crank it, it has my Epi LP Ultra feedback when too close. Not a high whistling feedback, more of the hollow guitar kind, real low building hum. But if I turn the tone knob up it goes away.

    I wasn’t crazy about the tone of the Micro terror. Glad you like that Vox!!!

    A little taste of it's gain maxed, with the new old Epi SG400 Vintage.

    You should check out the video by Toby’s guitar gear on the micro dark vs micro terror. I went with the dark.

    I wonder how well this would pair with a Mooer Radar. The Radar works nicely with my Hotone Mojo Diamond.

    The only thing I see that I don't like about it is the lack of an effects loop. I like to use the loop for reverbs and delays.
