The amp provides two fully independent channels—Bright and Girth—each with its own set of gain, treble, middle and bass controls, while the Girth channel also includes a volume control. The thick switch now functions on both channels (not just the Bright channel as on its predecessors), and the master section includes reverb, tone cut and master volume controls. The rear panel offers a single 16-ohm and a pair of eight-ohm speaker output jacks, mono send and return jacks for the effect loop, a 1/4-inch footswitch jack for the optional Vox VFS2A footswitch and a new XLR speaker-emulated DI output.</p> <p>The main differences between the Generation 2 and its previous incarnation include its glossy black finish (which replaces the previous flashy chrome-plated housing), digital reverb, XLR DI, thick switch for both channels, and the deletion of the tight and effect loop bypass switches.</p> <p><strong>Performance:</strong> One of the most impressive features of the original mini Night Train amp was its stellar clean tone. The NT50H-G2’s Bright channel delivers similarly excellent clean tones that feature the distinctive Vox chime and the original Night Train’s bite and satisfyingly full body, but with significantly more clean headroom and output. Overdrive crunch emerges when the gain control is above 12 o’clock, but the clean character remains even at full gain. The Girth channel produces ballsy high-gain distortion with a crisp, harmonically complex crushed-glass sparkle, and when the thick switch is engaged it goes into modern metal territory.</p> <p>The built-in digital reverb pairs quite nicely with both clean and high-gain distortion tones, sounding lush and deep on the former and providing a sense of space while retaining clarity on the latter. The thick switch is like a built-in overdrive pedal, providing a preset gain and midrange boost that expands the amp’s tonal palette and functions like additional channels. </p> <p><strong>List Price:</strong> $978.60<br /> <strong>Manufacturer:</strong> Vox Amplification, <a href="voxamps.com">voxamps.com</a></p> <p><strong>Cheat Sheet:</strong><br /> The thick switch functions on both channels, providing the Bright channel with added crunch and bite and the Girth channel with fat sustain and impressive gain boost.</p> <p>Built-in digital reverb provides the Bright channel with lush, deep textures and the Girth channel with an added sense of space, while retaining clarity.</p> <p><strong>The Bottom Line:</strong> The Vox Night Train NT50H-G2 is a compact but versatile amp head that provides a wide variety of tones and impressive volume output that’s ideal for live gigs and the studio alike. </p> <p><iframe width="620" height="365" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Xp5NyemXFtI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> http://www.guitarworld.com/vox-night-train-nt50h-g2-head-review#comments July 2014 VOX Amps News Gear Magazine Tue, 25 Nov 2014 22:44:04 +0000 Chris Gill, Video by Paul Riario http://www.guitarworld.com/article/21310 Ibanez Introduces Kaoss Guitar and Bass — Demo Video http://www.guitarworld.com/ibanez-introduces-kaoss-guitar-and-bass-demo-video <!--paging_filter--><p>Ibanez has introduced the Kaoss guitar and bass.</p> <p>From the company: </p> <p>For those looking to weave the dynamic elements of electronic music into their sound Ibanez introduces the RGKP6 Kaoss Guitar and the SRKP4 Bass.</p> <p>Each instrument includes a built-in/detachable Korg mini kaoss pad 2S that puts 100 effect programs within fingertips distance.

The Mk II has all the gorgeous classic overdrive that you crave but it has evolved to include cool new features that make it even more rhinoceriffic. </p> <p>In addition to the Volume, Tone, and Drive controls, you get a 100Hz EQ knob to cut or boost your low end by 12dB. Your low notes can either shake the ground like a stampede across the savannah or cut through the mix like a charging rhino’s horn. This pachyderm of a pedal also sports a Curve control to fine-tune the corner frequencies of your tone. All this amazing tone shaping makes other overdrives seem boring and one-dimensional by comparison. In front of a clean amp, with the Volume and Drive set at noon, you can go from pristine purity to a punchy, dynamic rhythm tone. </p> <p>Set the Drive low and crank the Volume and add tons of boost to wallop the input of any amp. Turn up the Drive control with the Rhino in front of a distorted channel and hear more gain and sustain than you ever thought your amp was capable of. And no matter how you use it, the Green Rhino Mk II will deliver clean operation, quiet relay-based true-bypass switching, and the rock-solid construction that Way Huge is famous for.</p> <p><iframe width="620" height="365" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/lE4ql8MZuWM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br /> <br /></p> <h1>Voting Closed!</h1> <p>The <strong>MXR M75 Super Badass Distortion</strong> (54.12 percent) defeated the <strong>Way Huge WHE202 Green Rhino Overdrive</strong> (45.88 percent) to advance to the next round! <a href="http://www.guitarworld.com/tags/jim-dunlop-effect-pedal-throwdown">To see the current matchup and all the matchups that have taken place so far, head HERE.</a> Thanks for voting!</p> <p style=" margin: 12px auto 6px auto; font-family: Helvetica,Arial,Sans-serif; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal; -x-system-font: none; display: block;"> <a title="View Iron Man Sheet1 on Scribd" href="https://www.scribd.com/doc/248221097/Iron-Man-Sheet1" style="text-decoration: underline;" >Iron Man Sheet1</a></p> <p><iframe class="scribd_iframe_embed" src="https://www.scribd.com/embeds/248221097/content?start_page=1&amp;view_mode=scroll&amp;show_recommendations=true" data-auto-height="false" data-aspect-ratio="undefined" scrolling="no" id="doc_234" width="100%" height="400" frameborder="0"></iframe></p> http://www.guitarworld.com/jim-dunlop-effect-pedal-throwdown-round-3-mxr-super-badass-distortion-vs-way-huge-green-rhino-overdrive#comments Jim Dunlop Jim Dunlop Effect Pedal Throwdown MXR Poll Polls Way Huge Effects News Features Gear Tue, 25 Nov 2014 15:07:48 +0000 Damian Fanelli http://www.guitarworld.com/article/22954 RJ Ronquillo Demos Eastwood Guitars' New Link Wray Tribute Model — Video http://www.guitarworld.com/rj-ronquillo-demos-eastwood-guitars-new-link-wray-tribute-model-video <!--paging_filter--><p>In the brand-new video below, guitarist RJ Ronquillo takes Eastwood Guitars' new Link Wray Tribute model for its first test drive. </p> <p>Check out Ronquillo's take on Wray's classic rebel-rousing instrumental, "Rumble."</p> <p>Only 24 of these babies are available, and they'll ship December 18 on a first-come, first-served basis.

A black form-fit case completes this limited-run offering. </p> <p>“I believe there is a soul and energy to a guitar well beyond the materials used," Stevens said. "There is musical karma. My over-30-year friendship with Peter Wolf laid the basis of building the guitar of my dreams. I then put that dream into the hands of Joe Knaggs, who I feel is the absolute best guitar builder/designer out there today. The fact that my guitar is available to the public is extremely cool, but honestly I’d play this instrument no matter whose name was on it. It truly is magic.”</p> <p>Joe Knaggs added: ”It is always an honor and inspiration to be working with Steve and I’m proud of what we have created together."</p> <p>Sales of Stevens’ Signature models will help MusiCares, a charity he has been supporting. "We wanted to give back some of the proceeds of my Signature guitar and MusiCares immediately came to mind. I’ve personally seen them help so many gifted players change their lives for the better. They are such an amazing organization.”</p> <p>For more about Knaggs Guitars, visit <a href="http://www.knaggsguitars.com/">knaggsguitars.com</a>.</p> http://www.guitarworld.com/knaggs-guitars-introduce-steve-stevens-signature-model-2015-winter-namm#comments Knaggs Guitars NAMM 2015 Steve Stevens Electric Guitars News Gear Tue, 18 Nov 2014 21:30:48 +0000 Guitar World Staff http://www.guitarworld.com/article/22902 Steel Panther's Satchel Demos Yamaha THR10X Amp, Plays AC/DC Riffs and More — Video http://www.guitarworld.com/steel-panthers-satchel-demos-yamaha-thr10x-amp-plays-acdc-riffs-and-more-video <!--paging_filter--><p>In the video below, Steel Panther's Satchel discusses some of his influences, plays a few of his favorite riffs (including a fair amount of AC/DC) and, most importantly, demos the Yamaha THR10X guitar amp.</p> <p>Check it out below and tell us what you think of the amp in the comments or on Facebook!</p> <p>For more about Yamaha's THR series, visit <A href="http://www.yamaha.com/thr/">yamaha.com/thr/</a>.</p> <p><iframe width="620" height="365" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Vr7NQHrLQxY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> http://www.guitarworld.com/steel-panthers-satchel-demos-yamaha-thr10x-amp-plays-acdc-riffs-and-more-video#comments Satchel Steel Panther Yamaha Videos Amps News Gear Tue, 18 Nov 2014 20:39:58 +0000 Guitar World Staff http://www.guitarworld.com/article/22754 Jim Dunlop Effect Pedal Throwdown, Round 2: MXR Super Badass Distortion Vs.
