Vox are distributed by Korg and Korg have made a lot of popular products by miniaturizing them - see the Nano controllers f'rinstance. Vox appear to have put  their latest tube head under the same magic raygun for some stylish shrinkage and the result is part of their Modern Classic Range in the form of the NT15H Night Train Valve Amp Head.

Taking the concept pioneered by the Orange Tiny Terror and others, VOX have designed a thing of beauty - it's brushed steel case, my attract paw prints, but it looks great. Capable of some great clean tones and plenty of that British spank Vox have long been known for.

Rob Chappers (AKA The Monkey Lord), takes a look.
