No longer available at zZounds
The Vox AC4TV captures vintage tone in a tiny enclosure. The Class A Vox AC4TV is a fantastic amp for recording or practice.
Say hello to a familiar face -- the VOX AC4TV. Way back in 1961, VOX rolled out the AC4 amplifier. Nearly fifty years later, VOX is pleased to announce the AC4TV -- the all-tube practice amp with remarkable self control. This up-to-date Class A version retains the distinctive EL84 power tube of the original and features a 12AX7 powered pre-amp, all driving a custom-made Celestion 10 inch speaker. The AC4TV's sophisticated sound is unmistakably VOX, delivering that distinctively British top-end tone.

Features

- Affordable all-valve design
- Switchable output levels 4. 1 & Quarter Watt output levels
- Quality vintage Vox styling
- External speaker output

Simple and sexy, the Vox AC4TV wears its pedigree proudly. The cabinetry features the same "TV" front design first used on the classic 1958 AC15, and still in use on today's AC15H1TV Heritage Series. One of the challenges confronting an all-tube amp is retaining a full tone at lower volumes. To solve this issue, the Vox AC4TV features a built-in power attenuator, with 4 Watt, 1 Watt and 1/4-Watt output levels -- ensuring you never lose that classic tube tone, even at the lowest listening levels. Want more? The AC4TV also adds a 16 Ohm speaker output, allowing you to add an additional cabinet -- such as the VOX412BN -- and state your sonic signature with authority. It's retro, it's chic, it's all-tube and it's all VOX. So what are you waiting for?

"Great amp!"

Sound
The sounds is great. It's rare to see an amp of this wattage being run into a speaker as large as 10 inches. This makes the amp useful for recording especially, as well as live and practicing. It's got the Vox sound that I love.
Features
Sometimes less is more, and this is certainly one of those cases. The controls are simple, which can keep cost down and quality up. It would be nice to have some eq, but you could easily just use an eq pedal.
Ease of Use
Super easy simple to use. Plug in guitar, turn it on, and dial in your tone.
Quality
For this price range it's hard to beat the build quality. Everything feels very solid, including the switches. The amp looks great too; I played a show with it and got multiple comments on how nice it looks!
Value
In my opinion, best feature set of an amp of this type in this class.
The Wow Factor
Looks great, sounds great, great brand.
