Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I'm very impressed with the quality. I know it's made in some factory in China, but whoever designed and engineered this thing is a genius. It makes loading in and out a breeze because of the portability. I'm just amazed how much sound and flexibility this little amp head provides!
How has it stood up over time?
It seems very reliable, like others have said--built like a tank. I will probably end up using it in gig situations every other week, so I hope the tubes hold out for at least a year.
Your general opinion of this product.
I had debated buying the Mesa Transatlantic 15 or the Orange Tiny Terror, but I figured getting a VOX for half the price was the best overall value. After using it for a few small gigs, I'm still amazed how small, well built and engineered it is, as well as how big the sound. It's an amazing achievement.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Very organic, big sound, responsive.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The tones are awesome, really nailing blues and rock. The cleans are great and with your pedal board you'll be able to get any sound that you want. Great job VOX!
How did the stain or paint job look?
It's a beautiful looking head. I put it on top of an Orange PPC112 and it looks classy.
How was the action out of the box?
