Tried one out at GC today this is what I found. The amp was fresh out of the box as I was looking for a practice amp for my even bigger practice amp the Ac15C1. As great as the AC15 is its a huge amp in a little package that weighs close to 60 pounds. I just wanted something smaller, that could get as loud sound 80-90% same and easier to carry. Carrying this sucker to the demo room I found it was quite light maybe 25-30 pounds and easy to carry. Pass the first the test. Playing it and pluging in I found it stayed quite at both clean and louder volumes paired with a Maxon OD808 they had at the store. Wanted to try it out with an OD to really open it up and I have an 808 and TS9 at home to so its very familiar and I know what sounds to expect when matched with a Vox. The clean tones are pretty warm and fat. Dialing up the master and bringing back the gain really gives a springy yet warm tone. Really touch sensitive and responds well to pick attack Dialing up the gain it gets really gritty just like the Top Boost side of the Ac15. Paired with the OD808 the tone is fat, creamy and tight. Was surprised how tight the sound was even at louder volumes it actually retained tigthter tones than the Ac15. Volume wise...... You can get some fat clean tones at a higher volume by letting the amps volume all the way up and the gain at 3-4 oclock. Very jangly and "BEATLES" or "Crosby Stills and Nash". Very warm, articulate and just a pleasure. Suave tone great for Jazz and country. Dialing things up especially paired with the TS you can get instant Queen, SRV, Hendrix tones. What I loved about it especially at louder volumes was that it still retained articulation practically no muddiness unlike other 5 watt amps Ive played it really retained the low end and the top end was not overbearing and rigged .Really retained the smoothness and articulation and higher volumes which is something that Im after. It also handled higher gain a little better than the bigger AC15. Overall very impressed and plan on getting one soon.... In fact put it on lay away and getting it within the month. Its the cream color one. While its not exactly 100% the same tone as the Ac15 it gets roughly 90 percent there and performs 100% great. Plan on upgrading the 112 stock Vtype with a proper Celestion Greenback as soon as I get it to push it to its full potential but stock I was quite happy with it. If I love itt stock can only imagine after it gets a Greenback. Really puts a grin on my face. I really prefer it to the AC10. The AC10 sounds great at low and medium volumes but when pushed it just turns to mush and falls apart due to the ten speaker. The sound, quality and most importantly function sold me. Uncomprimising big sound....light weight package Doesnt have the tremolo or reverb like its bigger brother but the it definately has the Vox tone is smaller package. Sounds great at low bedroom volumes but ost importantly sounds even better at those higher gig level volumes wich is what I was after. Wasnt really looking for a "bedroom" amp. What I was looking for was an amp in a small package that gave me roughly the same tones of the bigger AC15 but easier to carry around to be able to play at open mic or practice with a band. Yeah its bedroom friendly but more importanly for me its gig ready. Great amp and totally recomended for bedroom, band practice or gigs. This and one or two ODs is all one would need, sound great, and not break your back when your moving it LMAO. Well thats my review.
