Gear Review: Vox MV50 AC

Street Price: $219.99 Overview Vox made a splash a few years ago with the release of it's MV50 series of amps.  Touting a new technology they call "Nutube,"  they are an all-analog 50 watt compact tone machines.  I'd say it's the smallest amp head I've ever encountered without being in a pedal format.  With a...
