Vox debuts the handsome, ’60s-inspired Mini Superbeetle 25
The pint-sized amp stack uses Vox’s NuTube circuitry to emulate vintage tube tones.
It’s part home decor, part rock ’n’ roll machine. Vox’s new Mini Superbeetle 25 pays homage to the sound and style of the British Invasion, but boasts a few modern-day components.
The good-looking stack, which stands at just under two feet tall, mimics the sparkle and chime of Vox’s AC30 thanks to the company’s NuTube technology. According to Vox, NuTube uses “vacuum fluorescent display technology to obtain the same vacuum tube sound and response.”
Digital spring reverb and a tremolo, each with its individual control, are also built into the package. The latter marks the first time NuTube has been used in an onboard tremolo effect. Besides those, you have the standard suite of controls—“Gain,” “Volume,” “Bass” and “Treble”—to tinker with.
The Mini Superbeetle runs at a maximum of 50 watts (at four ohms) but has options for 25- and 12.5-watts, too. It has a single ten-inch Celestion speaker in an open-backed cabinet, and two speaker outputs if you need more brawn.
