    Very surprising little amp. Totally giggable and completely legit. Amazing really.

    Congrats! I can't tell what you're plugged into on the floor, or what cab you're running into.

    I've never found one locally to try. The Vox Mini Super Beetle is basically an upgraded MV50 AC.

    The cab is a fender bassbreaker 1x12 with an eminence RWB

    I’m fascinated by that Nutube technology. I have yet to plug into one of these, looks way cool.

    At the price point, how can you go wrong?

    Hmm, uses 19 V supply. Just like a laptop???? Interesting. And good idea (multiple sources of power).

    The price is good, 149 and free shipping from Amazon. I cant believe how good it sounds. I was very prepared to be disappointed and be returning it. I wont be doing that unless it dies or something.

    Me too. As I said above, I have yet to plug into one of the MV50s. The local GC is notoriously behind the times and understocked. I was told that when the MV50 line was first introduced, they got one in. It sold that same day, and they haven't gotten another one since. :(

    I have had a chance to plug into the Mini Super Beetle. The local GC did eventually get one in, and I've plugged into it several times. Same NuTube technology, 50 watts into 4 ohms (the cab of that mini stack has an 8 ohm speaker, so 25 watts), with Bass & Treble EQ, reverb and tremolo. So as I said before, it's basically an upgraded MV50 AC.

    And I like it. I'm trying to decide if I like it enough to pull the trigger. I have 3 Vox Pathfinder 15Rs, which is just about the perfect amp for me. The MSB compares favorably to the Pathfinder 15R, in theory, at least. I haven't had the chance to play the two of them side by side to get an actual A/B comparison.

    I did not know the little super beetle was the same thing in a different package. Thats cool. Heck I wouldnt mind having one of those. They are cute....and I used to have a full sized royal guardsman, haha.
