I had Greta once, had to (violently) put Jensen 5" -speaker into that... had some useless USB-connecting fan, took the "grill" out of it, sprayed that with brass colored paint and added a handle to it. A friend called it "camping gas stove"... knobs stolen from whatever project.Interesting... I bumped into this thread today morning and a couple of hours later my new Vox MV50 Boutique arrived in the mail...
It's now the new friend of my long-time-clean-platform Vox MV50 Clean.
But this thread also made me realize that... I appear to have a problem of addiction to mini amps... see below for evidence... (Blackstar FLY3... Vox Amplug AC30... Fender Greta... also a Micro Terror has gone one year ago... and my other 2 amps - Vox AC4C1 BL and Fender Pro Junior IV... are not exactly "large" amps!)

You know, I have a 5” Jensen in my basket at Thomann since a couple of months… waiting for some other things to purchase and get to the free shipping. Does it improve? I play it through a 12” Vintage 30, but I’d like to use it standalone, for what it is…I had Greta once, had to (violently) put Jensen 5" -speaker into that... had some useless USB-connecting fan, took the "grill" out of it, sprayed that with brass colored paint and added a handle to it.

For now - VOX MV50's are my latest find also. I bought "Clean"-version first, got impressed by it and now waiting "AC"-version for addition... Maybe the best weight/power-ratio ever (?). "Clean" is very loud with Jensen C15K (8 ohms) and from "AC"-version I expect to get some AC15/30 kinda sound with 2x10" WGS Veteran-cabinet. MV50 is so cute, even VOX Lil´Night Train looks like a giant beneath... And - I used to have Silverface Super Six (6x10") once...
Hardest thing seems to be is getting my fellow guitar guy to accept / forgive me converting to "Nutube-man"... what a traitor I am.
You mean something like this?An option for a Nutube AC sound for you could be the Valvenergy pedal from Vox + your MV Clean. Rather than having another head. You could also use reverb after the pedal…
Love it!!!You mean something like this?
4 NuTube Preamp pedals, delay, reverb and a 30w Class D power amp pedal.
