Overview

The VOX AC4 mini combo amp with Top Boost offers legendary tone in a compact and fashionable package. The AC30's Top Boost sound has fascinated guitarists around the world for over fifty years. Capable of massive crunch or the clean, classic "chime," this Top Boost tone is the essence of VOX's identity. The AC4C1-BL now delivers this unbeatable sound in a portable, compact body. Gain control, Bass and Treble tone controls, and a Master Volume allow any player to easily recreate this historic sound. Remarkable not only for its authentic VOX sound, the AC4C1-BL is also captivating in its appearance.

The rich, blue vinyl and Tygon fret cloth date back to 1963. Completing this vintage ensemble is an "old-school" Bakelite handle. Boasting the highest levels of design sensibilities, the long-awaited VOX AC4C1-BL offers an easy way for anyone to achieve the legendary AC30 Top Boost tone. The AC4C1-BL delivers the signature VOX Top Boost tone in a portable, compact amplifier. Gain control, Bass and Treble tone controls, and a Master Volume allow any player to easily recreate the historic VOX sound. Using a Class A, all-tube amplifier, the AC4C1-BL utilizes a pair of 12AX7 preamp tubes, and relies on a single EL84 Power tube to deliver 4 watts of power through a 10"" Celestion VX10 Speaker. Adorned in the rare and vintage look of rich blue vinyl paired with Tygon grille cloth, the VOX AC4C1-BL is sure to be an instant classic.

This little guy is a beast, all tube warmth with an unbelievable speaker. The Blue and Gold just gives it that little extra gotta have look. This isn't a typical AC4 it is much loader, cleaner, break up volume is up around full volume half gain. It has enough push to keep you happy in the studio, but you'll need a cab outside of that. Very well built amp, top notch quality you'd expect from Vox. It is built in the C world but as far as that goes it's quality is very well controlled through Vox. Simple no nonsense amp that will really impress you with the sound quality. I've been running this thing daily for a few weeks and the tubes seem to be breaking in nicely adding a little extra low end. Great weight, however where in the world can you store the power cord? Had to attach a little Velcro to hold that up but that's just me. Love it, not my first Vox by any accounts, but quickly becoming a favorite!

Tube Sound but not VOX sound.

This combo amp is very very basic. The gain is not enough to get anymore than a little sweetness, I might get a pedal but most likely will get a Fender Supersonic or Marshall...Read complete review

This combo amp is very very basic. The gain is not enough to get anymore than a little sweetness, I might get a pedal but most likely will get a Fender Supersonic or Marshall DSL40C. This guy is okay for now but too limited for me.

    This combo amp provides amplification and that is about it. The sound is okay but on the harsh side. Doesn't have a signature sound. At this price point there should be better options.

    Phenominal Amp

    By Jeff

    from Hammond, Indiana

    Comments about Vox AC4C1-BL 4W 1x10 All-Tube Mini Guitar Combo Amp with Top Boost:

    I've been playing for over 30 years. Bought this amp a month ago. I also own Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and a Egnater Rebel 30 head and bottom. The Fender is great but too much power for my needs as I record my original rock/blues tunes in my home studio and I mic the amps rather than using software to get the tones I'm looking for. The Egnater works beautifully because I can vary the wattage. This little Vox is outstanding in the studio. Clean tones are outstanding. Turn the volume and the gain up and this amp drips the blues. I have American Fenders and Gibson LP's and the amp works equally well with either. It also takes pedals very well. If you are looking for a great little amp with more than enough power for a studio this is it. For the price you won't find any better tone. This is definitely a keeper.

    Killer Little Blue Beast

    By Matthew

    from Dickson, TN

    Comments about Vox AC4C1-BL 4W 1x10 All-Tube Mini Guitar Combo Amp with Top Boost:

    Just picked one of these up, and I am blown away! Plugged my Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 in and found myself lost for over an hour before I knew it! Very responsive to pick attack, the cleans are full of chime and clarity...then run the gain up and that junkyard jangle will have your inner rock child throwing up the horns! I would recommend this to anyone looking for that great VOX sound in a compact amp!

    Great small amp

    Comments about Vox AC4C1-BL 4W 1x10 All-Tube Mini Guitar Combo Amp with Top Boost:

    This amp has a great sound and has enough versatility. I have used it over the last year. I am always happy with sound coming out of it. More than enough volume for practice.

    I like this amp

    By Russ N

    from Denver, CO

    Comments about Vox AC4C1-BL 4W 1x10 All-Tube Mini Guitar Combo Amp with Top Boost:

    This is a nice little practice amp. Sounds very good. I listened to many small low-watt tube amps recently and I liked this as one of the best in the price range. It just has a very nice sound. Its not quite as good as the sound of the AC15 I listened to right next to this one, but it was close for half the cost. And for my use at home, I really don't need anything louder than what the AC4C provides. This amp is just a nice little, attractive package. No its not meant to Gig with and no it doesn't have a 12" speaker, nor does it have built in reverb (which would increase the price). But with a 100 different pedals available you can add any effect you want. I have a nice Fender amp too, but a guy needs more than one amp to play with right!

    The perfect practice amp. Throw any pedal on it and it sounds amazing. It's also great for pushing the tubes at low volumes for recording. Love.

    Check one off the bucket list !

    By warren foil

    from Mt. Pleasant, NC

    Comments about Vox AC4C1-BL 4W 1x10 All-Tube Mini Guitar Combo Amp with Top Boost:

    When the "British Invasion" came in the 60's, Vox was what they rode in on. I have always wanted an all tube Vox, and this does great for my purposes. It's small, not too heavy, very cool looking, and can stand head to head with my friend's Marshall Class 5. You should know this is a very "bright" amp and paired with my Les Paul with '57 Classic pick-ups can be too bright, but that's what tone knobs are for. The cleans are very clean, the dirt is great but not death-metal. You do need some form of reverb, and this amp responds to my Vox Stomplab 2G extremely well, expanding my range of tone exponentially. The Marshall has no gain control, so is useless for dirt at all but the loudest settings. This is a huge advantage for the Vox, even over the other AC4. I'm pleased and proud to finally have an all tube VOX !

    Congratulations to myself

    By BRANDON AARRESTAD

    from Rockford, IL

    Comments about Vox AC4C1-BL 4W 1x10 All-Tube Mini Guitar Combo Amp with Top Boost:

    This Amp is fantastic. I just ordered a second for my office (yeah I have two of these now). It has all the tone and guts of a much larger amp, but it is practical for artists who want to practice at lower volume levels. I have a bigger amp for performances, but I'm even considering taking this little guy to the smaller gigs to keep stage volume under control. For those of you who are tracking, I'm sure you will like the simplicity of this amp in setting your tone up and recording a true Vox sound. It has surprising low end, thanks to the 10" celestion. And it has that Vox sparkle at the top end. Also, you won't find any better-looking amp in this price range (except, perhaps, if you can find the green version of this amp). Enjoy!

    Pure Vox

    By michael garcia

    from Dallas, Texas

    Comments about Vox AC4C1-BL 4W 1x10 All-Tube Mini Guitar Combo Amp with Top Boost:

    I traded in an old Fender Frontman 25G for this at one of guitar centers used gear expo and I could not be happier. It has great Vox tone with that Vox "Chime" and when you turn up the gain you get a great overdrive tone. For the price I'm not 100% sure about considering you can get an AC15 for a couple hundred more but if you're looking for a great little practice amp this is the one. I look forward to adding a good amount of effect pedals to this since it is a very straight forward amp with no built in effects.
