Vox Amps Announces the VX50 BA Tube Bass Combo Amp

Vox VX50 BA Tube Bass Combo Amp AngleVox Amps has unveiled the VX50 series of amps including the VX50 BA, a compact vacuum tube bass amp. The 50-watt amp is fitted with a new tube called the NuTube.

“By using Nutube, the new vacuum tube, this amp achieves 50W of high output power while being more compact, lightweight, and power-efficient,” Vox writes. “You’ll enjoy the rich overtones and sonic power that you expect from vacuum tubes, as well as output power with a tone that’s clear, yet warm and fat.”

The 9.9-pound amp is also fitted with an original eight-inch speaker and a bass reflex structure for providing “rich low-frequency reproduction.” Other features include a four-band EQ, a built-in compressor, an auxiliary input, a DI jack, and an overdrive switch.

The Vox VX50 BA will be available this month with a street price of $229.99.
