Vox AC4TV - 4W Tiny combo with an 8inch and 10inch speaker AKA Easiest to Lift Amp EVER
Comments: Ah yeah. Finally got it right. This thing has a preamp tube and a power amp tube! I also took this thing apart! I felt like a real guitar player, or at least a real amp tech. I was very scared though because the underside of the pcb board and all the circuitry is all exposed when it's opened. I probably came very very close to losing the ability to have children or remember the names of all the x-men. I did my own tube rolling here. I tried a couple of different el84s and 12ax7s.
Verdict: It sounded pretty good. The wattage selector is cool. I found it very one dimensional. It is not loud enough to be hard over a drummer.
Good for the price, but in the under 200 dollar range I still think your better off with a valtronix for it's versatility.
--additional comment on my Blackstar Review...
Mclaw I respect your gear knowledge but srsly...
12bh7 - preamp tube or power tube?
12ax7 - preamp tube or power tube?
F'in srsly. This is a 5w Epiphone Valve Jr.
