Awesome little workhorse
09.07.2014
Bought this amp for quiet bedroom practice while the kids sleep and, boy, does it deliver. The sound is classic Vox all around with nice cleans and meaty crunch when you really turn it up. And when you really want to, the thing is not that quiet at all. Connected it to a 2x12 cabinet and it was surprisingly loud.

Gave it it four stars on features as it does not have that much of anything beyond the basic controls and an external speaker output.

Four stars for the sound are there because of the relatively little headroom. Does not bother me the least as I tend to like moderate gain but might be a problem for some folks. For my purposes, I have found turning volume all the way up and controlling loudness with the gain knob produces the best results.

Awesome little amp I have ended up taking everywhere, really recommended!

Valves and Style

This fine little amp has been used many times by me in Studio and at home when I need true response for my Les Paul guitar. It has a warmth of tone that cases the notes to melt into on e another effortlessly.

At home one can play quietly and use the volume knob to get clean sounds. The cabinet is suprisingly solid and of course it has that amazing blue finish - so desirable.

This is ok for gigging iin small venues and I love the break up of the amp. It is in fact quite loud for home use - the master volume prooving invaluable in getting that top boost chime to accompnay your licks.

Good work Vox.

Miniature AC30..!
Lasse Ante, 04.08.2014
I've had it for a year and a half now and I am not one percent dissapointed of it. Overall it is an amplifier that has what you need of a low wattage tube amp.

Specs
The 10" Vox speaker is a bit boxy and I think that a blue bell would make this amp sweeter. The controls are basic and easy to use: gain, treble, bass and volume. I am fine without the gain. The blue color makes it nice on stage with light, but I don't like the brown cloth, I'd prefer a trad. Vox.

Sound
Clean it does great work with both my guitars (RIC360 and ES335) you get a descent Beatles sound of it. With the gain driven up at low volumes it gets a bit boxy. The treble is really dominant, and the bass should be more affective to the sound. For 4 watts it is an incredibly loud amp and gets the whole house ringing with the classic Vox chime.

Conclusion
It is a baby AC30, that has not fully evolved yet, with basic, easy controls, and the classic sound. Gets a bit trebely at times, but it is no problem. If you don't want to spend the 500 pound extra on the AC30 or don't need the AC30 or the AC15, you can't get wrong with this. Recommended

Just something missing
Chris437, 08.09.2014
I am on a quest for the best low watt am and after buying this sadly I have to admit I am still searching. I own a Vox AC30 CC2 and the AC4 does have some of the characteristics of this amp when clean but to claim that it is "basically the top boost circuit" is a farce.
Controls:
I love the chicken-head knobs. From left to right you have Gain, Bass, Treble, Volume and power.
Gain needs to be cranked up full to get hard rock distortion and left me want a bit more.
The Bass does a good job of adding or subtracting bass.
Treble pass 12 o' clock sounds too nasal for my liking.
The look of the amp is beautiful, is ok for practice and is very portable. Needs an effects loop and more distortion though.
