Vox Cambridge 50 Guitar Amplifier
Announcing the VOX Cambridge50
A powerful and modern modelling guitar amp The VOX Cambridge50 is an ambitious product that opens new possibilities in a modeling guitar amp. It uses Virtual Element Technology ("VET") modeling technology to deliver realistic and stage - ready sounds, Nutube to deliver the distinctive distortion, rap id response, and tonal change of a tube amp that cannot be entirely duplicated by digital technology, and an open - back cabinet equipped with a 12 - inch speaker for crisp sound. The VOX Cambridge50 guitar amp is the ideal fusion of these three elements, and a powerful modeling amp. With 50W output and versatile functionality, it's a great choice not only for live performance but also for at - home practicing or recording. The Cambridge50 offers enjoyable guitar playing in any setting.
Eleven types of further refined amp model
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.
Open-backed cabinet equipped with a Celestion VX12 speaker
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.
Equipped with a Nutube
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.
A full range of support functions
The VOX Cambridge50 is packed with functions to support the guitarist in every way. In addition to the built-in tuner, there's an AUX input that lets you listen to an external audio source while you jam along with it, a headphone/line output with cabinet simulator that's ideal for practicing at home or recording, a preset mode that lets you instantly recall stage-ready sounds, and a manual mode that applies the physical knob positions just like a conventional amp.

This amplifier is great value at around £250. It is light and easily transportable, yet can produce a wide range of sounds. It’s 12 inch Celestion speaker handles the output well, particularly as the amp enables modelled sounds from previous amplifier ranges. Whist primarily an amp for electric guitars, the versatility of the line setting enables the amp to work well with an electro-acoustic guitar too. The amp is pre-loaded with a range of effects and has a variable output control, allowing a power output from 1 watt to 50 watts to be dialled in at will.It’s loud enough to play a gig in a small hall, or turned down to practice in a bedroom at home. Portable, well loaded with onboard effects, variable output control. A headphone socket and line in socket for playing backing tracks makes it a super-versatile amp. It’s great value and I’m delighted with it.
Using the Vox Cambridge in studio for Miles End Music great sound and very easy to use. The effects are good and the amp collection of sounds are very good. Will be using this on the next Miles End cd
Amazing sounding amplifier with many tones, a nice USB recording function and real ease of use! Vox did an amazing job on this one! Love it.
What incredible value for money. Really good range of sounds. Exactly what I want for practice and small gigs.
Excellent combo at an amazing price. I'll be keeping this one until I snuff it, and I've had many over the years.
