Product Description

Convenient, highly portable and remarkably cost-effective, ultra-small mini amps have gained great popularity as "first amps" or "practice amps." The convenience of battery power and their space-saving ease of use only add to their appeal. The casual player may enjoy keeping a mini amp in the office, in the bedroom, or may carry one for inspired performing at any time. Even professional musicians enjoy these amps for warming up in the dressing room.

The popular AC1 RhythmVOX went well beyond the expectations of a typical guitar amp, introducing rhythm functionality, a sound quality that far exceeded its size, and even a tuner. The AC1 RhythmVOX Bass is the highly-anticipated bass version that's designed on these same crowd-pleasing principles. Featuring a broad base of 66 diverse rhythm patterns, it greatly aids in the most essential aspect of bass playing -- keeping the rhythm. The song pattern has been refined specifically for bass, providing a great way to enjoy jam sessions.

Powerful Rhythms, Flexible Control

The ten Rhythm Patterns include not just standards such as 8 beat, 16 beat, and blues; but also funk, reggae, and even complex irregular patterns. There's also one Song pattern containing an extended, multi-measure drum part. In addition, each Rhythm Pattern and Song Pattern provides six types of variation, for a total of 66 rhythm variations. The tempo and volume of each rhythm pattern can be intuitively controlled, and you can quickly recall the rhythm pattern you want.

Enhanced Tone, Superior Performance

The AC1 RhythmVOX Bass has a lot to offer as a bass amp. Two sound variations, Bright and Normal, cover the tonal range you need for any playing style or genre. In addition, you can obtain a natural-sounding bass tone by turning the Drive knob toward the left of the 12 o'clock position, or a modern driven tone resembling a pre-tube sound by turning the knob toward the right. A pair of three-inch speakers delivers a full-bodied sound.

Packed with Extras

In addition to the cool rhythms and great sound, the AC1 RhythmVOX Bass provides numerous features indispensable to any bass player. A dedicated E-string tuner keeps you in tune at all times. Use the headphone jack for private practice at any hour! Connect your MP3 player or other external audio source to the AUX IN jack and jam along with songs from your favorite band. Convenient battery power lets you enjoy all these features, any time, any place! An optional AC adapter is also available.

Features:

- Battery-powered VOX mini bass amp; supercharged with rhythm patterns and more
- Includes a total of 66 built-in Rhythm/Song Patterns
- BRIGHT switch delivers two distinct tone settings
- DRIVE knob provides more sonic variation
- AUX IN jack for jamming along to your favorite tunes using your CD/MP3 player

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great idea, terrible sound"
Overall: I purchased the Vox AC1RVBASS amp for a handy practice amp when I didn't want to go down to my studio. I hooked it up, played about a dozen notes through it, and packed it up for return. The sound was what you would expect from such tiny speakers. I was really disappointed. I was fooled by the good reviews I had read, and took a chance on it. ZZounds was great, however, and I had no problem at all returning it. If you want to use it as a headphone amp, I think it would be great. It has a good rhythm section built in. It just wasn't what I needed.
Style of Music: Rock, country, pop

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
