VX TB50 1965 ToneX Expansion DI
  • VX TB50 1965 ToneX Expansion DI

    Core DI sets contain the main tones (bright, balanced and warm EQ settings) for the particular amp. 
    Expansion DI set contains additional tones (thin, fat and scooped EQ settings).

    Core DI sets contain close mic'd IR cabs, Expansion DI sets contain "amp-in-a-room" IR cabs that need an external IR loader for the full 1-2 second length of the files. The "amp-in-a-room" IR's are meant to bixed in with the close mic'd cabs for extremely realistic room sounds.


    The copper panel VX amps and plexi panel MRSH amps defined the british electric guitar tone. The 4x el84 model by VX and the iconic plexi models have been played by countless big names in the music industry. The VX TB50 is far less known, but let me tell you, if there is anything that incorporates the best features of the vintage VX and MRSH models, then this is it. It also sounds bigger, louder and stronger than the coveted MTCH PHNX. 


    This amp has the power and punch of a 50W plexi MRSH, but having a TB style preamp, it has cleaner and less muffled mids, while having ample amounts of gain. Meanwhile, unlike the EL84 versions, this amp does not have that treble splash of the 30w VX models - it is bigger, smoother and has more bottom end that does not flub out. 


    While within clean(ish) settings the Briliant  channel is distinctly VX - having very crystline qualities, when turned up loud, the mids come out and it gets dirty, big and detailed all at once without getting harsh at the same time. 


    It has similarities to the MTCH PHNX, but it has more mids, less filtering and sounds looser a bit more vintage. Extremely versatile amp that can do MRSH, VX and MTCH tones justice.


    The Normal channel is a godsend for pedals - makes them sound huge and balanced like no other amp we've tried so far. The Normal channel has also stunning cleans and edge of breakup that are bulky, but still very usable (unlike e.g. the plexi style normal channel on its own).


    This particular unit is basically untouched, even the electrolytics are original and still going strong. 


    Some of the users includes: Peter Green, Noel Gallagher, The Beatles (turns out the AC50 and AC100 had way more exposition than the iconic AC30)


    The Expansion DI set includes 25 DI Tone Models consisting of 6 gain ranges (clean, edge, crunch, dimed, drive, lead) and 3 EQ settings of most of the gain ranges (thin, fat, scooped). Included are 6 custom "Amp in the Room" IR's of a 1964 VOX 2x12 with original and pristine Silver Alnico speakers and a vintage Marshall 1960A as a bonus though which this amp also sounds glorious.
