So far

13.11.2014
This amp was an amp i didn't want to purchase because it was £50 over my budget.
It arrived in 2 boxes. The outer box is a stronger brown cardboard box and the inner box is a more stylish Vox printed box but made of a lighter cardboard.
The amp was supported and covered well inside.
It arrived to the UK very quickly.

The amp was pristine when it arrived.
Prior to purchasing this amp I had bought a VHT Special ultra 6 and had to send 2 different amps back due to issues. Apart from the main problems there was a good sound coming out of the VHT for the price. However the issues put me off the VHT and I chose a Vox instead.
Thomann customer service was out of this world with regards to the VHT problem amps and I have no faults with Thomann whatsoever. Thanks Thomann.

This Vox amp is superb.
It looks great. The black tolex and the classic speaker cloth is to die for. Nice workmanship/ finish on the exterior.
There is a plastic Vox logo on the front, I done care whether its plastic or Gold it looks great and plastic is the least of my worries.
Sounds wise there is the classic Vox jingly sound ,crisp and clear all the way up to the distortion. This for me is mind blowing from this amp.
Dialling in the knobs takes a bit of getting used to but its well worth it. Once its set, it pumps out sounds that are amazing and with the stock tubes it comes with I don't see how this amp can get any better.
The speaker size kicks out a great range and such a full sound for a small amp.
I'm really happy.

The top surface of the amp has got warm but I guess thats to be expected as I'm sure all the electronic are positioned up top.
There is a small grill on the top to let air travel.
The rest of the amp is totally enclosed.
I'm sure this helps the sound but not with air flow. Valves do get warm.
I running my own guitar with only one P90 through it and it sounds amazing.
I reckon these are going to be gold dust fairly soon.
I've had it a week and will see how it fairs up over time but as of now this is a great amp.

I wanted an old-school sounding quality tube amp that matches my needs, means it can be used at home for practicing, as well as for make it loud for a gig. It's simple and has that well known tube-amp features. It works well with my Vox Straight 8 tube overdrive pedal and other effects too, especially with a short slapback delay. It has sharp and clean louds, but also has an ability to produce dynamism while playing metal chords with a massive overdrive set with much more bass.
It's not a surprise, this thing is loud. For a room practice, you just touch the volume end with full gain and it gives you the ancient all-tube sound with the proper sized, 12' membrane.
It was nice of Vox to produce this size of an amp, which can be a good and a long lasting choice, if you need the highest quality with usable sizes and with an affordable price.
I'm in love with the thing and suggest this bravely if you just getting know with all tube amps.
