NUX Mighty Bass 50BT


Recommended Posts

These guys are definitely upping their game on several fronts!

In terms of some of the multifx seen on that amp, you might be interested in this new offering from them which came out just a short while back:

MG-30 - NUX (nuxefx.com)

Unusually amongst the sub £300 multifx's, this does parallel routing.

I have one of their Mighty Plug practice amps >> https://www.nuxefx.com/mighty-plug.html
I have to say, it's bloody brilliant!
The effects are the same as the ones on that wee amp, as are the IRs, although there's only two amp heads.
It works great for just plugging in and playing, you can also sync it to your phone as a Bluetooth audio device and play along with whatever audio you have on there, you can even jam along with YouTube. And finally, it works as an interface for recording too, and it sounds really really good.

I am very much tempted by the MG-30 too!

I - perhaps stupidly, in retrospect - bought myself a Positive Grid Spark 40, because they claimed it could handle electric and acoustic guitar and bass.  The bass options turn out to be very limited and, although it's not dreadful, my overall feeling about it is "meh". 

Gregor and Frank's review has given me GAS for this NU-X jobbie, I've got to say.  Very tempted.  Mind you, it's £216 on Thomann (and therefore above the £135 post-Brexit bureaucracy ceiling) and they don't expect to have it in stock for 15 - 19 weeks. I might have to try the Mighty Plug in the meantime.

EDIT:

Just been outbid on a Mighty Plug on eBay.  Damn! 😕

Bought a "warehouse" Mighty Plug from Amazon the other day. Sounded great, app integration seemed good for editing sounds. No compressor in the effects list though, which I found a bit odd....

Unfortunately it failed in its primary function as the battery (or charging circuit) was goosed so it only functioned when hooked up to a charger - probably why it was for sale on the cheap from Amazon. Still undecided if I'll replace it, but Just ordered a replacement because as I say it sounded pretty good... But nobody buy a warehouse one in the next while because it'll probably be the one I just returned...

I've been wondering about this amp too, since I saw that video and others. I don't mind the low power out, since that would be fine for practice use, with the option of going in to a powered PA speaker or system if more is needed live. Only three amp models, but they cover the main vintage & modern areas.

One point of concern for me: it uses a 28V external PSU. That's an odd voltage that would be hard to replace if it goes wrong.
