That is!

Eifel-Angus, 30.12.2017
Evaluating amplifiers is not an easy thing. The sense of sound is just as subjective as the idea of ??the sound you are looking for.

I tested a few different amplifiers before landing on the hand-wired Vox. There was a Blackstar, an Engl and a BluG. They were not all (at least not for me)

I play a Les Paul Tribute Plus from Epiphone with Gibson humbuckers and was looking for something that would enthrall the missing heights. That's why I had oriented myself from the standard AC15 to the HW model because there is the Brilliance mode in the clean channel and at the same time the two high / low input variants. In addition, there is the hot mode of genius again puts on it. For me, the option to reduce the power from 15 to 7.5 W was interesting.

The decision was not easy because of the proud price, but somehow you have to buy what you need and so I persuaded myself and ordered the thing.

The amp is awesome.

For me and my LP, the Brilliance mode in the Clean Channel is the salvation. In the Topboost channel you can set everything with the sound control and magic what you need. I practically do not use the tone-cut control, because I fertilize everything at heights.

The hot mode in the Top Boost channel is a real enriching boost to the normal Cool mode

What I seriously miss at the amp is a reverb. He was not taken over by the AC15 for a reason I can not understand. Then I quickly ordered a Boss RV-6 behind. Together with that it is perfect (for me)

The sound is very defined and clear. The amp responds very well to the attack on the guitar. You can still clean well with actually already distorted attitude if one restrains something on the strings. With a little more effort on the strings it tugs at its best. Here you can practically combine without end and play in the truest sense of the word with the sound.

With my pedals the amp can handle very well. There is no wish left.

The built-in Celestion Greenback delivers on command always neat pressure and who still believes you could stay at home with 7.5 or even 15 W in a closed room, which is taught a better. On request, the windows are gassed and the neighbors neighbors teeter in time with :-)

For the service of the Thomänner and the Tho women a very big extra super special praise! The amp came with a small damage that was probably due to the transport with me. The thing had to be sent to the DHL control.

With a glance at the Kaldender I thought: That's it, before Weihanchten the promised replacement device is never and never with me. The new amp came then despite Christmas stress within 2 days with express delivery and was as desired even before Santa Claus! Since full grown men in the 50s are almost back to the child. Anyway, they are so happy. That was top-level care of the very best !!

I am completely happy with the combination of Giutarre + Reverb + Amp.

Maybe there will be an update in a few weeks

VOX.

Chrissie907, 03.12.2010
We tested the Amp in a direct comparison with a Matchless Club35 (1994) and a Bogner Extasy - and the little one has passed. This is really very amazing at this price.

The mastervolume can be bypassed, of course, the sound will be just like we just like. So if you want sound culture on the Beatles-Edge-Queen-Radiohead gets here the starting point. Variations then result with different speakers. The amp is noisy; Also cleansounds get so loud that it is enough for middle clubs. But it also sounds like a pleasant sound. To get into the tube frying area, it's really loud. The Mastervolume helps; a compromise.
