The Vox Night Train earned wide popularity among professionals and amateurs alike for its distinctive mirror finish and diverse tonal range. Now, Vox amplifiers uphold that tradition with the surprisingly compact Lil' Night Train.
Light enough to take anywhere, the Lil' Night Train lets you enjoy the traditional yet individualistic Vox aura in any musical situation, without ever leaving your signature tone behind!
Rehearsing, recording, on the gig, or practicing quietly at home, the all-tube design offers a diverse range of authentic, all-tube Vox sounds.
The exterior features a durable mirror-finished chassis, cut in the familiar Vox diamond pattern. Matched with the dedicated V110NT speaker cabinet, the Lil' Night Train Set forms a formidable rig!
All-tube design for uncompromising sound
Compact and powerful, the Lil' Night Train boasts vacuum tubes in both the preamp and power amp stages. The preamp uses two 12AX7 tubes, while the power-amp uses one 12AU7, providing that sense of drive, power, and fatness that's obtainable only from vacuum tubes.
Dual purpose output
The Lil' Night Train provides a headphone/line out jack - a feature surprisingly rare on an all-tube amp. This output contains a cabinet simulator that reproduces the resonances and spatial character of a quality speaker cabinet, so you can enjoy real tube amp sound even during night-time practice sessions or when recording directly from your Lil' Night Train.
Two-way tone switch
In order to meet the needs of any style or playing technique, the Lil' Night Train lets you choose from two tonal characters. The Bright mode boosts the high-frequency range for the familiar Vox chime; the Thick mode bypasses the tone circuitry, boosting the gain to create a more full and beefy sound.
High-performance Vox custom speaker cable
Included with the Lil' Night Train is a high-performance Vox custom speaker cable. This premium cable is constructed from thick 16 gauge wire designed for high audio quality, ensuring that the sound of your Lil' Night Train head reaches the speakers with no loss of fidelity.
The perfect pair
The dedicated V110NT speaker cabinet is the perfect companion for the Lil' Night Train head. Packing a ten-inch custom Celestion VX10 speaker, this cabinet delivers a rich, full-bodied tone. The rounded retro-look exterior is a great match for the Lil' Night Train, making it the ideal choice in both sound and design.
Note: The Lil' Night Train will be available initially as the Lil' Night Train Set, including both the Lil' Night Train head and V110NT cabinet. Separate head and cabinet will follow.
Availability: Lil' Night Train + V110NT Set (£TBC) Oct 2010; Lil' Night Train Head (£TBC) Jan 2011; V110NT (£TBC) Jan 2011.
