Comments about Vox Limited Edition AC4 4W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp Tan:
Really handsome hatbox here in the tan. Resembles aged creme actually, giving it a closet classic look. Could benefit from an open back. Really organic gain tones but it won't get you metal. At least not without a pedal and possible speaker change. Absolutely a secret weapon for country picking with single coil guitars. Gets a little fat and wooly with 'buckers, which might suit others more than me. A little lacking in the bass department. A larger rating Op tranny will help, as will changing back panel out to a 'fender cab' open design. These mods still leave you a fair amount of money over it's nearest clone, Deliese. The 'c4' mod will suit most ears best, and won't cost anything!
Being single channel I find it works best as part of a low watt ' quasi - sterio' rig. The biggest 'con' of this amp becomes appearant. Whether to run this as the clean amp or the dirt amp! A good problem to have.
Overall the signature top bost chimney grit sounds quite boutique.
