Overview

The new AC1 RhythmVOX adds a wealth of features never before seen on a mini amp. In particular, the rhythm function rivals that of dedicated units, providing a total of 66 Rhythm/Song Patterns. The AC1 RhythmVOX combo amp is a great choice not only as a first amp, but also as a warm-up amp on the road or in your rehearsal space, for practicing using the patterns as a metronome, or even as a rhythm box. It's sure to have a long and warm relationship with any guitarist.

Powerful Rhythm Features
As its name suggests, the AC1 RhythmVOX is a guitar amp that includes some cool rhythm features. 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 variations for a total of 66 rhythm parts. Each boasts serious sound quality with excellent presence, allowing you to perform with a realistic drum backing. The tempo and volume of each rhythm pattern can be intuitively controlled, and you can quickly recall the rhythm pattern you want. The Rhythm section of the AC1 RhythmVOX is both a guide to help you keep the beat, and a way to work out your original ideas and riffs.

Enhanced Amp Performance
The AC1 RhythmVOX also has a lot to offer as a standalone guitar amp. There's a full complement of gain, tone, and volume controls, letting you dial-in a broad range of sounds to suite your taste. A pair of 3" speakers delivers a full-bodied sound. Refinements have been made to deliver full-fledged amp sound based on the analog circuitry developed for the best-selling amPlug series of headphone amps. An Overdrive switch provides even more sonic variation. Switch it on for a serious high-gain sound; switch it off for a bright, clean sound.

Packed with Extras
In addition to the cool rhythms and great amp sound, the AC1 RhythmVOX provides numerous features indispensable to any guitar 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.

Really 4 1/2 stars

By DAVE BURKE

from Roseville, CA

Comments about AC1 RhythmVOX Battery Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

I would give this little amp a 4 1/2 if that option were available. I love the rhythm section, the fact that you can add in an mp3 player, love the distortion! Downside? I was expecting just a little more volume and a cleaner clean channel. Beats the heck out of my little Fender Mini-twin... this being the old black MT-10, not the new '57 mini-twin.

Almost a "hit"!

By Hank

from Birmingham, Alabama

Comments about AC1 RhythmVOX Battery Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

In todays market, you can find a larger and louder practice amp for the same cost as this little fellow. But if small is what your looking for, then this little VOX is about the best "mini" amp around. The clean and distorted tones are impressive for an amp this small and as a rudimentary "click" track, the rhythm is a nice add on. However, I believe VOX could have put slightly higher quality digital distortion and effect on this amp and really had a Hit on their hands. As is, its still a nice toy. A belt clip or strap peg would have been a nice addition also.
