The VOX Cambridge50 is a modern modeling guitar amplifier powered by Nutube and Celestion for powerful and responsive tones.
The VOX Cambridge50 is an ambitious product that opens new possibilities in a modeling guitar amp. It features Nutube, for real tube distortion and response, and an open-backed cabinet equipped with a 12-inch Celestion speaker for the classic VOX tone. Its simple design allows you to easily dial in settings on the face of the amp, or save your favorite settings as presets. With 11 types of amp models, 8 built-in effects, and a built-in tuner, this amp is perfect for many applications and any style of music.
The VOX Cambridge50 features a Nutube, the new-generation vacuum tube. Using electro-luminescent technology with the same structure as a conventional vacuum tube, the Nutube has been featured in a variety of products from VOX and others. The distortion and sense of compression that you expect from a vacuum tube, and even the response and playing feel, perfectly capture the feeling of playing a vacuum tube. In addition to the light-weight design that was unobtainable by a conventional vacuum tube amp, the Nutube brings additional unique advantages such as being maintenance-free and cost-effective.
Proprietary VET (Virtual Element Technology) allows an unprecedented degree of realism. In addition to the amp models, the original circuit itself has been reevaluated, carefully modeling the way in which the sound is effected by the wooden cabinet and the response of the 12-inch speaker. In addition to the classic AC30, this single unit gives you the sounds of a wide range of amps including well-known tube amps, modern high-gain amps, and rare boutique amps. LINE is also provided to support acoustic-electric guitars and keyboards, further expanding the useful scope of this unit.
(Amp models: DELUXE CL, BOUTIQUE CL, BOUTIQUE OD, VOX AC30, VOX AC30TB, BRIT 1959, BRIT 800, BRIT VM, SL-OD, DOUBLE REC, LINE)
There’s a generous selection of the effect types that are indispensable for shaping your sound. Both modulation and delay/reverb can be used simultaneously, and each provides a choice of four types, giving you a total of eight effects. This offers total control for shaping your guitar sound. A tap button is also provided, so you can set the delay time and other parameters intuitively.
Effect types: MODULATION (CHORUS, FLANGER, ORG PHASE, TWIN TREM), DELAY/REVERB (A.DELAY, TAPE ECHO, SPRING, HALL)
The VOX Cambridge50 features a Celestion VX12 speaker that takes full advantage of the 50W output. The rear of the unit uses an open-backed structure, delivering the open and crisp sound that you expect from a 12-inch speaker.
The separately sold VFS5 footswitch lets you use your foot to change programs. When the footswitch is connected, program memories are expanded to eight types. This provides perfect support for your on-stage performances.
