Killer Vox Tube Tones!The Vox AC4TV combo and AC4TVH head are cool Class A all-tube practice and recording amp solutions, based on Vox's famous 1960s AC4! Each 4-watt amp sports improvements on the hardware of its vintage counterpart, but retains all the best features, for modern tone with a nod to the past. There are the distinctive EL84 power tube of the original, a 12AX7 powered preamplifier, and a custom-made Celestion 10" speaker on the combo. Plus, to give you classic tube tone at any level, there's a built-in power attenuator with 4-watt / 1-watt / 1/4-watt output levels on the Vox AC4TV combo and AC4TVH head — perfect for recording!
Let's face it. When you're practicing — or recording — with your high-wattage all-tube amplifier, it's simply hard to get those classic tube tones at listening levels. The Vox AC4TV, however, solves that problem. Already a 4-watt amp, the Vox AC4TV gives you incredible tone when you need to crank it to reasonable levels. And, for tremendous tone at really manageable levels, you can use its built-in power attenuator to take it from four watts down to just one watt, then down to just 1/4" watt. It's the perfect partner for late night recording sessions, when you don't want to wake up the neighbors. And at under 20 lbs., it's also a great amp to take to practices and to your smaller gigs.
So what about its tone? Thanks to the AC4TV's distinctive EL84 power tube found on the original 1961 AC4, complemented by a 12AX7 powered preamplifier that works in tandem with the EL84 to drive a custom-made Celestion 10" speaker, you can expect this one to sound retro-chic! Of course, that's also the vibe you're going to get, as the Vox AC4TV features a 1958 AC15-style "TV" front design, with the Vox's signature diamond grillecloth. All in all, this impressive combination makes the AC4TV one of the best bang-for-your-buck combos available.

if tone's what you want
by Barak fromthis is a no-frills little amp that has one thing that makes it worth it: tone.

Gateway amp into the world of tubes.
by AV from NjThis is my first tube amp ever. If you need a super clear non distorting channel, go solid state. If you like vintage clean with a little grit (warmth) or that delicious tube overdrive at lower wattag... read more [+]e get a tube, this tube. This amp is sensitive to the way you twist the knobs and stroke your strings. In less suggestive words, there are many tones you can get out of this amp. I plugged my synth into this too, sounds amazing. I have a Parker guitar with the coil taps, tone galore. If you want to do the experimental texture noisebed thing, this helps you along since you can get it to feedback so easy if you want it to. The feedback from this thing is mouth watering. Thank you sweetwater Katie! You know what's good! close [-]

Best Class A amp for anywhere near the price
by ToneHead from Chicago ILAn outstanding British variation on the Fender Champ type design, made to emphasize distortion and interactivity rather than minimize them as Leo Fender originally intended! With the EL84 power tube i... read more [+]t can't duplicate the glassy clarity of my 70s Champ with a 6V6, but compensates by producing a much wider range of clean and crunch tones, through a much better cabinet and speaker. The low wattage settings are useful but a little mushy, however like most tube amps it sounds best cranked in the maximum 4W setting. This amp is meant to stand right in front of and play to - it produces incredible feedback and near-feedback interactivity when you stand close to it and blast away. The tone control has an extremely wide range from icepick in your ear to bear farting in a submarine, with a million useful tones between the unusable extremes. It sounds great with analog synthesizers as well as any guitar I've tried, humbucking, single coil or even piezo. Awesome sounding when you melt the 12AX7 with any decent fuzzbox. The primary liability is the necessity of removing an absurd number of screws to change the tubes. close [-]

Looking for a great blues harp harmonica amp? Look no further than the Vox AC4TV. Nice and punchy, with total control over tone from ultra-clean to distortion. Use it with a Shure 520DX "Green Bullet" and that little bit of small-box midrange puts the harp into the perfect pocket in the mix. Worried that four watts isn't enough? It's actually too much most of the time. Vox even suggests plugging it into a 4x12" cabinet! This has the potential to be a monster rig in a small package - fortunately, there's a power attenuator with two lower settings to bring it down to comfort levels. All in all, this would be a great addition to any studio or blues player's arsenal.
