New VOX Day...

Okay, I'm a VOX/Fender fan. I've always wanted a small headphone amp, but refused to pay the $40-50 Voc charges for their headphone amps. Well, caught the Night Train version last week on the Stupid Deal of the Day for $20, and it came in today. Gotta say that I am impressed. Great tones, 2 different channels, and quite a bit of control. Wish it had a reverb, but now I'm getting greedy. :) Sounded great through my earbud headphones. Really nice to keep in my guitar case. Easy, and quiet jamming, even while my kids are asleep!

Just curious, has anyone ever tried to use one of these headphone amps as a line out to a PA system or the like? If so how do they sound? Our band uses a Jam Hub for practice & this could be a good way to avoid carrying an amp with a headphone out to or rehearsals.

 

 

BTW- I have the "big brother" version of this amp (NT15C1-CL). GC's website currently lists it at $699 but when I was at a local store last summer I saw it tagged for 399. For the $ I was impressed enough to bring it to the register.

When the sales clerk rung it up he informed me they were offering an additional 15% off on it so I happily waked out the door with it & a receipt for $339 + tax.

 

I don't know if there was an error in the pricing but I'm happy with the purchase...

I saw that SDOTD last week but passed on it. I have a NT head and have yet to bond with it, so I figured I'd have the same result with the headphone amp. But I'm glad it turned out to be a good product. I've been looking at those plug-ins for some time now and I'm tempted, but probably have at least 3 other headphone amps kicking around. But I'll have to snag one the Vox plug-ins the next time there's a good deal on a version that temps me.

 

I've been getting back into my smaller Vox amps these last couple weeks. First I pulled back out my AC4TV, and then my AC4C-1 BL. I really have a hard time decided which I like best. But when I first got them, I played them a bit and then quickly pushed them aside. Now that I'm ginving them a second listen, I'm enjoying them more. They may not have much of a bottom end to them or an internal resonance, but they do create some of the coolest natural overdrive tones I've ever created. All I need is a reverb/delay pedal and I'm good to go with those amps.

 

To better describe the OD tone I hear, just listen to the riff in this song. [video=youtube;F8cZybR-YqI]

 

Since I'm into my newfound love for my little 4-watters, I'll have to go back and give my NT head another go.

Interesting, I did not know that. Being a Yank, I guess I'm all about Fender and Mesa but I certainly appreciate the contribution of the Brits, particularly Marshall. Nothing wrong with Vox either but I've heard they can be a bit temperamental. Sounds like Laney has addressed that issue.

 

Actually I've always lusted after a Vox but it was a guitar not an amp - the Teardrop that Brian Jones used to play - tonez to die for on those early records.
