Take Sir Brian May’s unique tone anywhere with this lightweight tube amp and cabinet rig

The MV50 Brian May is a unique and inspiring guitar amplifier that is the result of a collaboration
between Vox and the legendary Brian May from Queen, successfully encapsulating his iconic
tone into the popular VOX MV50 tube amp, with a perfectly matched accompanying cabinet.
“I want people to be able to get the sounds you make in a stadium show into your living room,
and this achieves that. I hope that people find them inspiring.” – Brian May.

With a combined weight of less than 5kg (less than 11 lbs), guitarists everywhere can now enjoy
Brian May’s iconic stadium rock tone in a small and lightweight tube amp rig.
The MV50 Brian May has been designed and developed in collaboration between Vox and the
legendary guitarist Brian May.
Powered by Vox’s Nutube technology – a revolutionary new vacuum tube that produces
authentic tube tone at a fraction of the size – the MV50 Brian May is based on the MV50
circuitry and AC30 tone, but with the addition of a KAT (Knight Audio Technologies) treble
booster, which can be toggled on or off, allowing guitarists to achieve Brian May’s instantly
recognisable tone.
With a refined control panel featuring gain, tone and volume controls, the MV50 also features an
EQ switch that can be toggled from flat (perfect for larger cabs) to deep (ideal for getting a
deeper tone even from a smaller cab).
When combined with its matching speaker cabinet, the MV50 produces a 25w output at 8ohms,
packing a large punch despite its small size. The MV50 Brian May’s headphone/line out also
features speaker emulation, so you have the option of recording directly from the amp head
without needing to mic up the cab.
With a head weighing just 540g (19oz) , and cab weighing 3.9kg (8.6lbs) this is one of the
lightest tube setups available to guitarists, and certainly a lot lighter than Brian’s on-stage trio of
AC30s! You can truly take Brian’s iconic tone with you wherever you go.
