"Not For Me-Noisy and Too Quirky"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I really wanted to like this amp, the tones are great, especially the AC 30 sims. (As you would imagine.) But the thing is really noisy. Loud hiss even at low volumes. Maybe I got a bad ond bit no change of guitar/pickup types, placement, cord changes or power conditioning could contain the noise. Also, the power supply is some flimsy transformer thing like on a PC. No confidence in the durability. Then there’s the built in tuner that only tunes the low E. Should have just included a pitch pipe. Not for me. Very disappointed.
The Vox sound snd build quality are there but the design engineers missed the boat on creating a usably quiet circuit. The hiss is strong with this one.
That tuner is a joke.
Ease of Use
Easy to fisl up great dounds but you have to drown out the loud woosh this thing makes constsntly.
Good looking unit. Appears to be built well, except for the toy store power supply.
They pack alot into this amp. It sounds good and looks good. Value is good if you play loud.
No contact with Vox. Requested retutn ftom Zzounds less than 12 hours after drlivery due to what for me are fatal flaws.
The Wow Factor
It’s got that Vox diamond grill mojo.
Folk, rock, power pop.
