Need a single amp to cover all your home–recording and gigging duties? Vox have got you covered!
A common problem for those of us who both record guitar at home and play it live is that amps that are loud enough for on-stage use can sound somewhat disappointing when played at studio-friendly levels. And while digital models of analogue amps can help, some still prefer playing through the real thing. Vox have long achieved decent results by combining real analogue valve technology with digital modelling stages in guitar amps, starting with their underrated VTX series. Since then, they've continued to make improvements and add different hybrid models to their range, and this new, low-cost, Cambridge 50 model teams Vox's more recent Virtual Element Technology (VET) modelling with a miniature Nutube (a tiny but real valve). The aim is to deliver the tone, distortion and dynamics characteristics of a traditional valve amp, but with the ability to turn the output level up or down as much as is required.
