Overall Rating
Playability and Feel
A step up
Your general opinion of this product.
It's a big step up from the Vox AC4TV, for just a little more in price.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The cabinet is top notch, but the speaker fabric on the front is not pulled tight. The Vox AC4TV had Sovtek and Ruby tubes. This one is all "Made in China" tubes. No name.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It's super quiet compared to the AC4TV, no line noise or buzzing, even with pedals.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
It sounds real clean, even with the gain cranked up. I could hear an amount of overdrive, but I'm just a beginner. Works good with nylon string acoustic guitar, real clear tone. I'm not interested in swapping tubes out in it, because doing that before yielded no change in the tone. I actually think the matching Chinese tubes makes it so clean and noise free.
How was the action out of the box?
I like how the knob lettering is front facing. This amplifier lets you get a good range out of the guitars volume knob. Don't have to adjust it by millimeters.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The cabinet is great, except for the fabric front having dips. I ordered the purple one, but the shipping box said BL (blue) and the retail box had BL printed. Only the bar code sticker said PL for purple in small print.
How has it stood up over time?
I had the AC4TV for a few years without any trouble. However with Vox, I'd avoid using those multi-effect pedal stomp boxes and stick with single dedicated pedal because my first mini Vox got real hot and burned out. Vox gave me a free upgrade to the AC4TV which was very kind of them. With dedicated effect pedals it barely gets warm.
