Geat little ampthis little vox amp is worth its weight in gold!
I can go clean when I need to, or really jacket up.
All the cool sounds you can get with a much bigger amp.
All the cool harmonics comes soaring out.
And if all of that is not enough, just hit the button for the drum machine.
It is the best practice amp I have ever had. When I play and have the drum machine going on time just flies by. It will definitely make a better player out of you. Like always, vox hit it right on the head!

A sweet tone machine~!I have tried several mini amps and was not satisifed until this one. I am a Tele player and this one makes it sing. The clean setting is not very loud, but it works unlike others that sound muddy. What is special is the overdrive setting. I just spent an hour with it in my lap and had a load of fun with its feedback capability. This thing runs on batteries? You wouldn't think this was possible. As for the rhythm tracks, think Dr. Rhythm of the 1990's. Not much to write home about, but the guitar tone totally rocks.

lovin this thingi would have given it 5 stars but my unit caught fire from the batteries. I cant use mine with batteries only a power adapter. But even given that, i still think love this amp. This is my only solid state amp and i really just bought it because it was 1 watt . But I was blown away, this thing has two 3 inch speakers in it that are actually made well with steel or alum. and sound pretty amazing. I mean I am not selling my vintage tube amps but this have some really pleasing sound. The clean sounds nice, you can really change the tone with the gain and tone controls and it responds to your playing like a tube amp does I guess because of its size and the speakers. The amp switches from clean to dirty and the distortion i this is so much fun. I can get feedback from this little guy. Its get nasty but responds well to pick up changes and lowering volume levels. Finally, the 66 drums loops this amp has is amazing. There is 12 funk beats, 12 blues.. you can turn the tempo up or down. And thats the real magic of this amp, it sounds pretty damn good for 3 inch speakers and the 66 different drum patterns are a BLAST. This is the best practice tool that has come along since the footpedal loop pedal. This is a great tool to write music, practice your chops or even to jam with. Two of these in my Apt would be perfect and it feeds back. So even though it caught on fire I am still keeping the one I have because it sounds so good, like i got a special one. But I am sure they all sound as cool as mine.

Cool Little AmpIt is a cool little amp for playing around and not disturbing the rest of your. It is easy to transport. You can fit this little Vox in the front pocket of your gig! It even fits inside a hard case with your guitar! Is great for what it is, an easily transported practice tool.

VOX AC1A nice little package to practice with - gives enough sound to do it. The clean setting could be cleaner but I'm comparing to a fender tone but overall I love as it also has the built in rhythms so you can get in the groove.

Vox AC1 Rhythm Vox - Very favorable..I recently purchased the Rhythm Vox and it is great to practice with when my drummer isn't present. The drum patterns are adjustable as well as the tempo which makes it all work. When cranked to max volume, the amp distorts in a somewhat unwanted way. The distortion switch kicks in a good sounding tone.
I occasionally run a line out from the headphine jack into my giging amp for more volume when practicing if needed. I also use headphones (sounds great) so as to not disturb my wife.
Overall a nice product.

It's good with les pauli like the sound of distortion. it has a clean/distortion switch. however, distortion knob doesn't change the sound much. neither the tone knob does. i have a fender mini. the fender's distortion is very rough and fuzzy compared to this. and the tone knob works well.
this needs 6 AA batteries. i prefer one 9V like fender tho. rhythm function is good but you can't set bpm. this also has a tuner function for E.
Static noise is horrible. especially with single coil. fender is much better.

Great IdeaI really dug this little amp but it only worked for about 5 minutes. Sweetwater was great about my return. I wish there was a little higher end portable amp like the Vox out there that had drum tracks, etc. I don't know what I will do when my old G-Dec 30 quits working. Do not expect great sound from the Vox but it was fun while it lasted.
