I hear that Vox's are British sounding and Fenders are American sounding. What exactly does this mean?

What is British tone and what is American tone?

Just wondering.

american voicing sounds more open less mids, less crunchy, bright, and smooth.
-Fender
-peavey
-mesa

british voicing is lots of mids, crunchy, compressed, warm.
-vox
-marshall
-orange

to be honest its much of a muchness in mean would you really consider the sound of a Fender to be similar to that of a peavey or mesa? or vox to a marshall?

^yes. it's the matter of how much distortion it gets. the base is similar. when you play a peavey clean, it is definitely closer to a fender than a vox.

american clean: very trebly. lots of available bass(thumpin'.) scooped mids. a bit of a bump in "low" mids(rather than 'true' mids)
british od: tons of "true" mids, not as trebly as the american clean. moderate amount of treble. fair amount of bass which is loose. a nice bite in the mids.
american od: good amount of treble and bass. more british in regards to the "true" mids but a touch darker. creamy quality with extra "hair" when you really slam the strings.

Voxes sound more Shimmery, sparkly, etc.

That's how I can describe it.


I dunno, I've always found fenders to be incredibly bright, not thick, but ultra sparkly and clean.

^ i go by the mids myself. fenders are incredibly trebly, but they have a dark midrange voicing(scoop)
voxes do have a very chimey midrange character.

I've never played a "real" vox, just the Vtronix. You're definatly right on Fender's having a natural scoop feel to them.

Voxes I know have an enormous midrange. Ask Slatsmania about the Voxes midrange. They are very warm sounding, although Fenders are very bright also.
