Voxman's demo's of the Vox Night Train

Postby voxman on Sun Apr 04, 2010 3:34 pm

I've been fortunate enough to have the loan of a Vox Night Train that I've been using through the 1x12" cab for the AC4TVH. 8)

This is a super little amp that has that rare mixture of Vox chime and Marshall type crunch, and playing it is pretty addictive. The thick switch, whilst bypassing the onboard EQ, gives the most wonderful Marshallesque type crunch. :rawk: I've tended to use it in the full 15w (Pentode) mode as I just prefer it to the 7w Triode mode. Although great if you want to crank the amp at lower volumes, the Pentode just gives a bigger, fuller & more 'open' tone.

I had a go at making a couple of amateur demo you-tube vids. The first is just the Night Train 'straight' with no effects, and is mostly 'crunch' distortion. The second is to show off the amps versatility for clean, chimey, jangly & bluesy stuff with the help of the (also excellent) Tonelab ST that I used just for a bit of reverb, delay & chorus, but with all the amp & cab modelling turned off - so the underlying tone is 100% still just the fabulous all-valve tone of the Night Train.



Great amp (& I love the dinky gig bag it comes with too!) - just hope that I did enough to do it justice. :roll: Anyway guys, see what you think - hope you like the vids:

Cheers :cheers:
