      Comments about Vox 4W 1x10 All Tube Mini Guitar Combo Amp w/Top Boost:

      It's uses are only limited by your imagination and the amount of support gear you've got. Small gigs, just go bareback. it's plenty loud enough, since a good drummer will tone down for small places anyway. For larger gigs, mic through the mains.

      I enjoy the simplicity. Just set the volume and tone where you want them, (I like the volume almost pegged and the tones set high) Then use the guitar controls to tweek tone and distortion. There's hardly ever any need to fool with the amp controls.

      It's really fun with a pedal board. A boost or preamp pedal will send the tone to that wild, hard to find place that most amps will never let you experience, even with weak pickups or a light handed playing style. Of course the usuals like reverb, delay and phaser are a must too, and they sound great with this amp. Can't tell you why, but try one and you'll hear it right away.

      Every guitar player should have this amp or something very similar, just for the simple ease of use and tone drenched playability, and nevermind that it looks just cool as hell.

        Great studio amp. Nice clean chime to dirty distortion tone. Sounds great with most microphones. I have used it to replace amps 10 times the price in the studio with amazing results.

            I love this amp. I always play shows with my amp mic'd up, so loudness is not an issue. What this amp delivers is tone. Total tone. Even through the 10" speaker, it sounds awesome. There's plenty of variety of sounds from clean all the way though smooth overdrive. It doesn't matter where you set the tone controls, it will sound great. It responds great to changes in the guitar and loves pedals. I couldn't ask for more at this price!

              Comments about Vox 4W 1x10 All Tube Mini Guitar Combo Amp w/Top Boost:

              The Vox AC4C1 is a killer little amp. The master volume, treble and bass controls make this amp a great improvement over its recent predecesor (AC4TV). Due to its size this amp lacks low end. It sounds best with humbuckers. With the gain set low and the master way up you can achieve British Invasion type chime and shimmer. With the gain cranked you'll hear the solo tones of the great Brit-Blues masters. For the price you're getting a lot of amp.

                Comments about Vox 4W 1x10 All Tube Mini Guitar Combo Amp w/Top Boost:

                Stunning looking amp. This is not an AC4 with blue tolex. It has 2 x 12AX7s, not one like the AC4. This means more gain. It also has gain, bass, and treble controls. No wacky attenuator, which was just a few giant resistors in the AC4. It has a 16 ohm Celestion with a large ceramic magnet. Using the speaker jack disables the internal speaker. Tone is clear to about half way up on the volume control, then you get some nice tube break up. Cranking the gain up produces a different kind of distortion, less compressed. Cranking the gain and volume, get some ear plugs! It never sounds muddy, but can be weak with single coils, so use humbuckers, crsnk the bass up and be amazed. Input jack on mine feels like it could break at any time.
