Manley VOXBOX Combo

Product Description

“Manley’s Greatest Hits” (and more!)

The VOXBOX combines the legendary Manley Mono Mic preamp, the ELOP reborn as a lower ratio compressor, the MID EQ blown out as a full range PEAK-DIP-PEAK EQ, and a DeEsser with a second ELOP limiter at the end.

Using the Direct Input, bass players often wonder why it wasn’t named the BASSBOX.

  • NOTE: Operating mains voltage:Units are purpose built for original destination country’s mains voltage: 100V, 120V, or 220-240VAC as indicated on the serial number badge. Power transformer must be replaced in order to change mains operating voltage.

    120VAC units may NOT be rewired to put the primaries of the power transformer in series for 220-240V operation or a large radiated field of hum will develop. If changing locations/voltages, the power transformer must be replaced with the dedicated one for the voltage at which it will operate.
