Vox Night Train 50 vs, AC 30

Postby (grenadilla) » Sun Jun 22, 2014 6:53 pm

Does anyone know if the current Vox Night Train 50 sounds more like an AC-30 (enough distortion with great chime ) or is it more like Marshall (fierce and savage ) distortion ? I like EL-34 tubes but not the all-metal cabinetry of the NT-50.To see the tubes is nice. The Vox AC-50 looks twice as good . Maybe a AC-30? What's your opinion?

Night Train sounds much more metal and chunky than the AC30.

Hi,
In my opinion you can not compare these two Amps ! The AC30 is definitely more old school
and the Night train sounds more modern!
I would prefer the AC30 !

Which would a PRS Custom 24 sound better through?
