Serious sound that exceeds its appearance Nutube is the new vacuum tube developed in a collaboration between KORG and Noritake Itron. This dream device uses vacuum fluorescent display technology to obtain the same vacuum tube sound and response, while eliminating the problematic aspects of a vacuum tube, and has begun being used by VOX as well as other musical instrument manufacturers. The Nutube is used in the VOX MINI SUPERBEETLE, faithfully reproducing the tonal character of VOX’s legendary AC30. The sparkling, chimey sound that has captivated guitarists for more than fifty years is alive and well in this new amplifier. Additionally, the traditional VOX tremolo effect has also been included. The amplitude of the tremolo also changes the depth of Nutube distortion, varying the sound, resulting a true tube driven tremolo effect. Also provided is a digital reverb that simulates a classic spring reverb, dramatically improving the potential for shaping your sound. An extension speaker cabinet can also be added to this package for more volume when you need it. The MINI SUPERBEETLE is not merely a reproduction of the classic stack; it is a true re-imagination of the amp that has been updated to meet the needs of today’s players.
An amp designed for fans of British Rock heritage; play it, and also enjoy it as décor VOX boasts a sophisticated sense of design that is unmatched by any other guitar amp manufacturer. From a historical point of view, there is no other guitar amp that resonates so strongly with music aficionados in both looks and sound. Throughout VOX’s history, the AC100 stack set, wrapped in its chrome frame stand, stands out as one of the amps that exemplifies VOX and its lasting impact on pop culture during the height of the British Invasion. The VOX MINI SUPERBEETLE emanates the spirit of that shining history, and is the rare amp that you’ll enjoy not only while playing it, but also as décor. It’s a privilege that's backed by more than sixty years of VOX history.

The Morgan JS12 Josh Smith Signature amp came to life years ago when Josh asked Joe Morgan to build him a killer small wattage amp that he could use on the Grammy’s playing behind Mick Jagger. The JS12 contains all of the mods that Josh asked for on his personal PR12. The hand applied aged lacquered finish is standard for this model as is the custom Eminence JS1250 speaker that was designed specifically to Josh’s exacting standards. Josh also had Joe incorporate a boost switch for those times he needs just a little more grit from the amp. The JS12 starts with the classic black face tone and then beefs up the low end by giving the power supply of the amp more juice so that it doesn’t fart out like the originals. The reverb has also been modified to add a Dwell control. The Dwell control allows you to control the amount of decay in your reverb. This allows you to have a very high reverb mix without washing out your guitar tone. The addition of the 3db boost switch allows you to get more grit even at lower volume levels. The bass and treble controls interact with each other to give you a wide range of tones. The cabinet is a specially designed fix baffle cab. The fixed baffle design allows the entire cab to resonate with the speaker giving it a much larger sound for such a small box. As with all Morgan Amps the JS12 LOVES pedals and works well with any pedalboard. The JS12 is small footprint grab and go combo that will cut through any mix and is loud enough to get over drummer. This amp has been Josh’s go to amp whenever he is in the studio or on the gig battlefield.

This single-channel, all-valve amp is all about maximum tone with minimum confusion, presented in a super-portable 1x12 combo format. Voice 1 offers mid-’60s-type American warm clean tones. Voice II is subtly stronger and more ’50s in character. As you push the gain and engage the Mid-Kick function, the V40 takes on a more ’60s British voice for timeless blues-rock tones. All the time the V40 responds to your guitar, responds to you: it’s one for the ‘feel’ players.
Single Channel & Voice Switch
Go from vintage-style Californian tones with single coils, through to a driven mid-’60s British drive all in one channel. Voice II strengthens the midrange at the input for more punch and cut. Compared with V40 The Duchess, V40 Deluxe has slightly more brightness and 'air' overall; a step or two away from mid-Atlantic Duchess towards Californian Deluxe.
This works in conjunction with the Middle pot to boost midrange frequencies in the EQ section. The more you push the middle pot, the more it pushes overdriven sounds, especially with humbuckers. Overall you'll find slightly more overdrive and compression at maximum gain than in the Compact Series V40 The Duchess.
Valve-Driven Spring Reverb
V40 Deluxe benefits from a valve-driven-and-recovered long-tank spring reverb, for authentic, vintage-style ’verb. We've also included a Tone pot on the reverb that enables you to go from smooth, dark ambience to much more bright and 'springy' sounds. The reverb is also footswitchable on and off.
Tremolo was one of the first ever guitar effects that's been put to stunning use in everything from blues, rock'n'roll, country, rock, Americana, pop and much more. Given V40 The Deluxe's vintage leanings, it was a shoe-in for inclusion here. Try it with a ton of reverb and wonder how you ever lived without it!
Low Power Mode
You'll find a switch on the rear panel offering a low-power mode for around 7 watts. This works brilliantly for home and studio use, not to mention for those of you on quiet stages with in-ears. Or… just max out the amp and bask in that extra low-volume drive and incredible compression.
Series Effects Loop
The hard by-passable effects loop enables you to use delays, reverbs etc after the preamp section of the amp to keep them clean sounding. V40 Deluxe uses a post-phase-inverter master volume, so if they aren't as clear as you like, try lowering the mix/output of the pedal, especially as you turn the amp master up.
Celestion G12H-75 Creamback
After extensive blind listening comparisons, the H-magnet Creamback 75 came out top as the speaker that we felt best delivers V40 Deluxe's rootsy-boutique tones. It's also in the V112-WC-75 cabinet.
Cabinets That Sing
Our cabinets use pine for top, sides and bottom, with ply back sections and 12-degree up-angled speaker baffle. We feel they have a unique, highly musical resonance that plays a big part in the Victory tone.
