Features a variety of input/output jacks
Aside from an input jack for your guitar, these amps also feature a variety of other input/output jacks. You can adjust the volume for the mic input and also apply delay/reverb effects to the input signal, which is optimal for situations like playing and singing solo. Also, you can select the VOCODER amp model for a talking modulation effect that sounds as if you’re playing a talking guitar, which you can use by playing the guitar while singing or talking into the mic.
The amp also features an AUX IN jack for your music player or another external sound source, which gives you three simultaneous input channels including the signals from your guitar and mic.
Further, this amp has a built-in cabinet simulator, which you can hear through the PHONES jack. This cab sim adds the characteristics of a guitar amp cabinet to the output signal just before it reaches the power amp. This is perfect when recording to an audio recorder or when practising in headphones.
The amp models used to define the sound of the VOX MINI GO series use the “VET” modelling technology used on the VOX Cambridge50, which offers a realistic and responsive sound. Selectable amp models include the traditional VOX AC30 type, an amp stack model representative of the 80’s, a boutique amp, and a high-gain amp with massive distortion. The LINE setting is useful when plugging in an electric acoustic guitar or keyboard.
A new and unique vocoder has been added for “talking modulation” effects that sound as if you’re playing a talking guitar, which you can use by playing the guitar while singing or talking into the mic (or while you’re picking the guitar strings if you don’t have a mic connected).
This dual channel, 22W blackface design from the 60’s used 6V6 power tubes and a tube driven reverb to produce a big sound at a lower wattage. Our modeling is based on the Vibrato channel.
The clean channel of a high-quality amp that was produced only on special order, and was known as the overdrive special. With a beautifully rounded low range, a sharp midrange attack, and a sweet treble register, this is ideal for single coil pickups.
The overdrive channel of a 100W high-quality amp that was produced only on special order, and was known as the overdrive special. The wonderful sustain obtained by raising the GAIN control is smooth and soulful.
The normal channel of AC30, which is a typical guitar amplifier of Vox. The clear high range of the Celestion alnico “Blue” speaker, as well as the rich midrange, deliver a captivating clean sound.
The classic “top boost” circuit of the 1964 AC30. It delivers a smooth and refined top end, a majestically deep overdrive, and a rich, brilliant clean sound.
A UK-manufactured 100W single-channel head with master volume made in 1983. Turn the GAIN control all the way up to get the thick, snarling hard rock and heavy metal sound that dominated the 80’s.
An English-made 100W amp head released in 2007 that boasts a four-channel design with powerful tone. We’ve used the “Overdrive 2” channel, which produces a tight low-end and transparent high-gain metal sound.
The overdrive channel of a snakeskin-covered 100W amp head built in 1991. With an open low-end and a compressed mid/high range, its powerful, heavy sound delivers a forceful tone that will not break down even with the most extreme gain settings.
The modern high-gain channel from a wild beast of an amp. Its deep and loose low-end, sparkling highs, and monstrous gain are ideal for guitars tuned as low as possible, or for metal acts wielding seven-string guitars.
When you sing or speak into the microphone while playing the guitar, the talking modulation effect is activated, which makes it sounds as if the guitar is singing. This is effective when you speak clearly while changing your voice.
Only a tone control amplifier that produces a clean tone. This works best with audio signal input from a line-level instrument like an electric acoustic guitar or keyboard.
The effects on the Vox Mini Go series have been revamped for a clearer sound that matches the sound of modern-day music with more precise modelling, which also lets you create a wider range of sounds. Effects types available include chorus, phaser and octave. Including the delay/reverb type, this gives you a total of eight effect types.
EFFECTS 1 (Modulation types/Octave)
- CHORUS: A standard chorus effect that gives the sound a sway and rich expanse.
- PHASER: A phaser effect that creates a cyclical swell.
- TREMOLO: A typical tremolo that modulates the volume up and down cyclically.
- OCTAVE: An effect that adds a bass sound that is one octave lower. You can adjust the knob to achieve a subtle octave or one that is fully present, and increasing the knob further provides synth bass sound with good resonance.
EFFECTS 2 (Delay/Reverb types)
- A.DLY: Models an analog delay that uses a Bucket Brigade Device (BBD).
- D.DLY: Creates a clear sound delay unique to digital systems. This is effective for rhythmic play that matches the delay time to the tempo of the song.
- SPRING: Simulates the spring reverb that’s built into many guitar amps.
- HALL: Models the reverberation of a concert hall containing numerous echo components. The operation of the knob and button is the same as with SPRING.
