â€” Latest Addition to the VOX Night Train Family â€”
MELVILLE, NY, September 22, 2010 â€” VOX Amplification has added the new NT2 Lilâ€™ Night Train to its Night Train amplifier lineup. Lilâ€™ Night Train is an all-tube lunchbox-style amp that comes complete with a matching 1×10″ Celestion speaker cabinet. Weighing in at less than five pounds, the Lilâ€™ Night Train is truly little, making it excellent for effortless portability.
Sharing many cosmetic elements with the original VOX Night Train, the new Lilâ€™ Night Train features mirror-finish metal exterior, cut with the distinctive VOX diamond pattern. Inside, it features two 12AX7 vacuum tubes in the preamp stage. A single 12AU7 power amp tube delivers two Watts of power into the matching V110NT cabinet.
Unlike most all-tube amplifiers, the Lilâ€™ Night Train can be run without a speaker cabinet. The headphone / line
output features an emulated speaker response, making it ideal for practicing silently while enjoying all-tube tone, or for direct recording with no cabinet mic-ing required.
The preamp section features both Gain and Volume controls for adding an overdrive edge at a range of listening levels. With the Bright/Thick switch in the Bright position, the two-band EQ is engaged. In the Thick position, the EQ is bypassed for a thicker sound with increased gain.
The Matching V110NT cabinet houses a ten-inch VX speaker from Celestion. A premium (16 AWG) VOX speaker cable is included for connecting the head and cabinet while preserving superior audio quality. A polishing cloth for the Lilâ€™ Night Train head is also included.
The VOX NT2 head and matching V110NT cabinet are sold together as the Lilâ€™ Night Train set, which will be available in October 2010 with a U.S. MSRP of $650.
