[NAMM] Vox Announces MINI5 Rhythm Amplifier
Vox Amplification adds to its portable amplifier lineup the Mini5 Rhythm portable modeling combo for guitar players on the go.
The 5-Watt Mini5 Rhythm provides 11 amplifier models, starting with the coveted VOX British tone and including classic historic amps, hi-gain amps, and rare "boutique" amplifiers. In addition, a clean, non-distorting amp model can be used with any acoustic instrument or a keyboard.
A total of eight effects are on-board: compressor, chorus, flanger, and tremolo, plus two reverbs and two delays. One effect and one reverb/delay can be operated simultaneously. A Tap Tempo is also included to set the delay time.
The Rhythm section can be used to help keep the beat, and also as a rhythm trainer for practicing and to accompany jam sessions. It includes 99 rhythms and metronome patterns, broken down by genre.
In addition to an instrument input, the Mini5 Rhythm also offers a separate microphone input allowing the Mini5 Rhythm to function as a portable P.A. system. A convenient AUX input is provided for jamming along to a CD or MP3, or for use with any audio source. The headphone output can be used for private practice, as a line out for recording, or for using the Mini5 as a personal monitor when hooked to larger sound system.
The Mini5 Rhythm can run for up to 30 hours on six AA batteries; an AC adaptor is included for stationary use.
The VOX Mini5 Rhythm will be available Spring 2013 for a U.S. Street price of $159.99. More details on www.voxamps.com/us/mini5/.
