Vox MV50 Brian May guitar amplifier head captures all the thunderous, iconic tones of legendary Queen guitarist and songwriter, Sir Brian May. Developed in collaboration with the legendary guitarist himself, this amp allows guitarists everywhere to experience the majestic tones that made Queen one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
You don’t have to worry about sacrificing tone for portability; this palm-sized amplifier packs an incomparable punch! With its powerful 50W output, each note will vibrate deeply, creating the thick full sound associated with tube amps. Experience pure clarity and warmth combined with majestic overdrive - all within this tiny little box.
Guitarists will enjoy classic British-style EQ along with a three-band EQ and two tone controls as well as onboard reverb and boost functions. Whether you’re playing live or recording your own tracks at home, the MV50 Brian May amplifier head easily provides an outstanding vintage sound that is both loud and clear.
Powered by Vox’s Nutube technology – a revolutionary new vacuum tube that produces authentic tube tone at a fraction of the size and power – the MV50 Brian May is based on the MV50 circuitry and AC30 tone, but with the addition of a KAT (Knight Audio Technologies) treble booster, which can be toggled on or off, allowing guitarists to achieve Brian May’s instantly recognisable tone.
With a refined control panel featuring gain, tone and volume controls, the MV50 also features an EQ switch that can be toggled from flat (perfect for larger cabs) to deep (ideal for getting a deeper tone even from a smaller cab). The MV50 packs a large punch despite its small size, with a 50w output at 4 ohms, making it perfect for gigging, rehearsals, and even for home practice. And with cabinet simulation in the headphone/line out, the MV50 Brian May can be recorded directly, without needing to mic up a cab.
Weighing in at only 540g (19oz), the MV50 BM is one of the lightest tube amps available, making Brian May’s iconic tone truly portable. “I wouldn’t mind going on some future stadium gig and seeing how this shapes up.” – Brian May.
With eye-catching red casing the MV50 Brian May provides a visual nod to his legendary ‘Red
Special’ guitar. The face of the amp is finished in Vox’s quintessential diamond-patterned cloth, complemented with Brian May’s signature, to represent his personal approval of the amp which bears his name.
