In the last year, VOX has been coming out with great amplifiers with their new NuTube technology. Tubes that take up less space and power while adding great functionality to your sound. While at NAMM 2017, I got to check out the newest prototypes of amp head in the NBX150H.
The NBX150H is a Prototype amp head that can go all the way down to 5 Watts. The head gives you a high gain amplifier that also gives you the sounds you might need.
Inside is the NuTube technology – a flat tube that takes up 30% of a standard tube. It gives you the same drive at 2% power. This design came from the Noritake Company who manufactures high-end televisions. Vox acquired the technology to improve the amp.
Vox Starstream Guitar
The Starstream provides a wide range of guitar sounds from acoustic to electric and even non-guitar sounds such as banjo or synth. This is a stand-alone guitar, so you can connect to any amp or direct to the board and control sound, distortion, reverb, and many other options.
