VOX Lil’ Night Train Guitar Amplifier – Authentic VOX all-tube tone in a stylish, ultra-compact 2-watt head (MSRP: $400.00)

The VOX Night Train earned acclaim for its distinctive mirror finish and diverse tonal range. Now, VOX has created the even more compact, all-tube Lil’ Night Train. About the size of a lunchbox and weighing less than five pounds, it’s small and light enough to use everywhere, from rehearsing, gigging and recording to quiet practice at home.

The preamp uses two 12AX7 tubes, while the power amp uses one 12AU7, providing the drive, power, and fatness that can only come from vacuum tubes. In addition to Treble and Bass tone controls, Lil’ Night Train offers a Bright/Thick switch. Bright mode boosts the high-frequency range for the familiar VOX chime heard on thousands of classic and contemporary recordings; Thick mode bypasses the tone circuitry, boosting the gain to create a more full and beefy sound. The Lil’ Night Train works perfectly with the companion Lil’ Night Train speaker cabinet (SRP: $250.00) or other guitar speaker cabinets, and has a headphone output for private listening.
