    haha idk. eq the the vox's low end frequencies to maybe fatten it up a bit?
    that or try different mic positions. its hard to say if ur running just the mic through the mbox.

    Nino, try different mic positions first (thanks Bear), before you start touching eq's.

    Post an example, we'll take a listen and make some suggestions.

    Here's a good post for you to read in the meantime:

    Edit> After all the other posts and suggestions we've given you (in which I don't remember Marshalls ever being brought up) why did you end up buying the 3k?

    Don't do that.

    Spending more money on cheap ass "tube" FX boxes isn't going to help.
