First things first: this is a great-looking, compact and with a whole lot of great sounds to offer. Very flexible and easy to dial in. With single-coils, it can be a bit shrill; using the normal channel, and dialing in the Tone Cut knob, puts the excess treble firmly on a leash. Top Boost channel is great for a little more hair on your overdrive tones. Awesomely rich tremolo.
Now to the quibble: 5-star rating misses and falls to 4 due to the reverb having been DOA. This turns out to be a common occurrence due to the poor quality of the stock tank. Rather than go back-and-forth with returns or warranty work, I ordered a MOD replacement tank from Amplified Parts.$20 and 2 minutes with a screwdriver got me reverb, decent if not quite Dick Dale worthy. Easily fixed, but Vox would do well to consider a new source for that particular part - the only blemish on an otherwise great value.
