I was talking to my guitar tech for a while today, and mentioned that I thought the Vox Nightrain could be a fine addition for my rig. He justed shook is head and said: Yeah, it looks cool. But it says Vox.

what I first thought was the he just didn`t like them, but he claimed that many of his customers were bringing their vox amps to him for both minor and major repair at both highend and lowend amps. Any of you Vox- owners who have experienced a lot of trouble?

No. Vox amps are very reliable and sound great.

It might be that the Night Train head has some flaws but overall the Vox amps are top notch!

I don't own a Vox (any longer) but that's definitly news to me that they should be buggy.
Maybe that's something new after they recently moved production to China? At least this is the first time I hear Vox and bad quality in the same sentence.

That`s what I thought as well, but he sounded very sceptical to vox (though I`ve never heard of a problem with them).
Maybe he`s just selling amps to wrong people, if you catch my drift wink.gif

i had some vox amps, an ac30tb, a vt100 and a cp50, NEVER had any problem at all, they're super reliable, build like tanks.
i'm getting the night train for sure, i just love vox amps.

I've had VOX amps in the past and I wouldn't hesitate to own them again in the future. Super amps and definately a reliable make.

Man, a friend has a head/cabinet vox, and it's actually on the best sounding amps I've ever heard, great quality.

To me that is so unprofessional, I would consider changing techs.

Perhaps the guy really had some bad experiences with Vox, doesn't mean that anybody else has to share his opinion. If you like the sound of Vox, then get it. At least you know who will repair it if that moment comes (god forbid) wink.gif
