Light enough to take anywhere, the Lil' Night Train lets you enjoy the traditional yet individualistic VOX aura in any musical situation, without ever leaving your signature tone behind! Rehearsing, recording, at a gig, or practicing quietly at home, the Lil' Night Train's all-tube design offers a diverse range of authentic, all-tube VOX sounds. The exterior features a durable mirror-finished chassis, cut in the familiar VOX diamond pattern.
At home I connect it to a V112NT and found a nice tone by setting it at Bright mode and then as the cabinet is not that prominent in the low frequencies I turn the Bass control at its maximum while Treble and Gain points 9:00 as Volume is kept at noon, this setting cuts the excess of brightness from my Tele and makes room for a nice clean platform. It is a nice companion for some rehearsals as its sounds very nice with PA systems through its headphone's out.
This is a great little amp. Tone quality is very good and very clean. I can get a good overdrive tone out of it too. Volume levels can get surprisingly high. I use this as a "bedroom" amp primarily. It is perfect for a study or office. I have also used it in live settings mic'd through a full PA and I've been very pleased with the tone quality.
For reference, I tend to run very clean amps with a lot of head room and I use nearly all of my gain controls through pedals versus using amp gain. While this amp has a great gain feature, it doesn't have a foot switch for easy toggling. That makes it difficult to be dependent on it. However, the gain is very impressive given the size.
All things considered, this is easily the best low watt amp I've ever used. Would highly recommend it.
