Sweet!I have an AC4TV and an AC15C1 so why another vox? Well I did some research and was really impressed by what I was seeing with this amp. I wasn't disappointed when it arrived at my door. The amp is good size, between my AC4TV and My AC15C1. The sound is much smoother and richer than my AC4TV, speaker quality is much better and the hot setting is hotter than what I can generate with my AC15C1. I really like the cool setting, it gets a nice grit when you want it, but has pretty good headroom for clean. Put a ProCo Turbo Rat in front of it and it does some pretty good Radiohead Clean~to~Dirty tones. I put my Baby Boom reverb in front of it with just a hint of room or chamber reverb and it's really nice. Amp comes with a footswitch (unlike my AC15C1) that takes you from Cool to Hot modes. And a dust cover is included as well (a first for me!) The volume of this combo is more than that of the AC4TV and approaches the AC15 although there are a lot of tones that can be had without blowing your ears out in you living room. The cost is dear but I am totally satisfied that the tone difference is tangible and well worth it. I could make pretty much any of my repertoire sound great with just a guitar and a cord. Adding my reverb pedal is frosting, but the amp has a creamy tone that makes this an option more than a necessity.
