About This Listing

The Vox Nova amplifier was introduced and described as "the first lightweight compact amplifier expressly designed for use with wind instruments."

100% original

After becoming the predominant guitar amp manufacturer of the mid 1960's, Vox wished to expand into new musical markets. Vox recognized an opportunity in the band instrument business and started sourcing brass, woodwind, and string instruments that would bear the Vox name. . This innovative approach to amplifying wind instruments opened a whole new market for Vox amplifiers.

The Vox Ampliphonic Nova amp was the entry level amp aimed at the woodwind and brass marketplace. Like its guitar counterpart, the , the solid state Nova had two high impedance inputs and was rated at 10 watts RMS, 20 watts peak.

In addition to a two position "Dark/Bright" switch, the only other controls were a "Volume" and "Voice" control. The circuitry for Voice control was derived from the Vox "Tone X" control found on many Vox guitar amps, a sweepable frequency parametric tone control.
