Two weeks ago, before leaving on a camping trip, I started a thread about my New Amp Day, my VOX MV50 amp head, Boutique model. In that thread, @unixfish encouraged me to post a “tone report” on the Boutique. I played it only briefly before leaving for a week. Since my return, I have played through it more, though not as much as I would like. Other matters have demanded my attention, chief among them health concerns for several family members, but also commitments, duties around the house, etc. What follows here is my “tone report” on the MV50 Boutique, such as I have been able to assess it thus far. About all the gear in the signal chain…Obviously, the central character in this tone report is the VOX MV50 head, the Boutique model. But I do not own an extension cabinet. So, the way I am using this tiny amp head is to run from the Phones/Line out from the rear panel of the MV50 to a channel on my Alto TS310 powered speaker. I do plan to get a cab on down the road, but at present I can’t test how the Boutique sounds through a cab. So, keep that in mind as you read on. I have seven electric guitars: five Logan Custom teles; one Logan Custom Challenger; one MiK Peavey Raptor Plus (a strat-like guitar). Thus far, I have used three of the seven guitars through the Boutique: a tele with a P-90 neck pickup, the Challenger and the Peavey. I chose these three because they each are “outliers,” so to speak, as in distinctively different from teles with more vintage style single coils. The tele with a P-90 is an obvious difference. My Logan Custom Challenger, if you’re not familiar with it, is loaded with a set of PAF-style humbuckers. And the Peavey has “wide top pole piece single coil pickups” with what I take to be ceramic magnets. The other four teles I have offer vintage style tele single coils, albeit of three different brands: Wilkinsons, Bill Lawrence Keystones and DiMarzio Twang Kings. I will of course be testing those guitars in the MV50 Boutique as well. Whether I report on them later in this thread I’m creating or decide to create a “Part II” thread to this one remains to be seen. I have only one pedal: my BOSS ME-70 multi-effects. I fully intend to test all the guitars through ME-70 going into the MV50. I will try it both in front of the amp head and from the line out to the ME-70 to the powered speaker. But so far I’ve been too lazy to hook up the multi-fx, so everything I’ve done to this point has just been the guitar in question going straight into the Boutique, no effects.
