Vox Lil' Night Train 2-watt Tube Head. Compact Tone!
Here is a great example of affordable tone in a very compact package. It's a Vox Lil' Night Train 2-watt, all-tube amp. The Vox Lil' Night Train head is in flawless, as-new condition, has new tubes and comes with a heavy-duty speaker connection cable.
Sometimes you don't have enough oomph to cart around a 30-watt tube amp to your buddy's house. This head is extremely portable, and loud enough for casual jamming and lower-volume practice sessions. Weighing just under 5 pounds, the Lil' Night Train head had a retail new price of $400.
From the official Vox marketing materials: "Enjoy the Night Train all-tube head... The preamp uses two 12AX7 tubes, while the power-amp uses one 12AU7, providing the drive, power, and fatness that's obtainable only from vacuum tubes. In addition to the Treble and Bass tone controls, Night Train offers a Bright/ Thick switch. The Bright mode boosts the high-frequency range for the familiar VOX chime; the Thick mode bypasses the tone circuitry, boosting the gain to create a more full and beefy sound.
