However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days

  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Limited Edition Model

Vox has now re-launched certain amplifiers such as the Valvetronix series in a limited edition colour, offering you an individual look. The Vox MINI5 Rhythm Compact is now available in a British Racing Green vinyl with classic diamond fret cloth, that simply recalls quintessential British style. This iconic appearance adds an extra touch of British class to this distinguished amplifier, and its classic green colour is renowned with British racing car legacy.

Equipped with 11 Realistic Amp Models

The Vox MINI5 Rhythm is fully equipped with 11 realistic amp modelst have been taken from the flagship Valvetronix series, supporting a broad range of styles and playing techniques. It provides a perfect simulation of the legendary Vox AC30, for the drive typical of vacuum tubes, as well as models of powerful high-gain amps and transparent, clean types. It also has a built-in Vox original "Bassilator" circuit to cover the ultra-low-frequency overtones, giving an intensely heavy sound that belies its small size. The clean-sounding LINE input has no distortion, making the MINI5 Rhythm perfect for electro acoustic guitars and keyboards.

On Board Effects & Rhythm Function

A total of eight effects are on-board including a compressor, chorus, flanger, tremolo, and two types of delay/reverb. The Vox MINI5 also has a newly-added rhythm function, with up to 10 genres of built-in rhythm styles including 8-beat, 16-beat, rock, metal and R&B, as well as a built-in metronome. The tempo and volume can be easily adjusted, allowing you to try out ideas for a new riff or phrase, or simply practice playing to a beat.

Perfect for the Mobile Musician

One of the many benefits of the MINI5 Rhythm is its portability, as it can run on six AA batteries, with approximately 19.5 hours of operation with power select set to 0.1W. This makes it ideal for street performances or other outdoor playing where the included AC adapter is unusable. In addition, the carrying strap and light weight construction make it particularly easy to transport, so you can play wherever you want.

Additional Features

As well as a standard guitar input, the MINI5 Rhythm also offers a mic input with adjustable volume and delay/reverb effects for vocals, an AUX input for external audio sources, and a headphone/line out jack with a built-in cabinet simulator, great for recording directly into a multi-track recorder or practicing with headphones.
