â€” Class A, retro-style, all-tube mini amp debuts â€”
MUSIKMESSE, FRANKFURT, GERMANY, March 24, 2010 â€” VOX Amplification has added the new AC4TVmini to its amplifier lineup. Extremely portable, the AC4TVmini is ideal for recording, jamming with friends, rehearsals and more. Based on the popular VOX AC4 from the 1960s, this all-tube practice amp has been factory-modded with a premium transformer and select components for optimum tone.
This up-to-date Class A version retains the distinctive EL84 power tube of the original and features a 12AX7 pre-amp tube, plus an original VOX design 6.5" speaker. Adjusting the volume and tone settings can create a broad range of tones â€“ from a sweet, clean sound to the distinctive VOX overdrive sound. Stylish, clean and classic, the AC4TVmini borrows its retro-chic â€œTVâ€? front styling from the classic 1958 AC15. This vintage VOX design is still in
use on todayâ€™s AC15HTV from the VOX Heritage Collection.
The attenuator switch allows the AC4TVminiâ€™s output power to be set at four Watts, one Watt or even one-tenth of a Watt. This convenient and ear-saving feature allows the amp to create a real, musically satisfying distortion â€“ even at the lowest power setting. An external speaker jack is also provided for connecting to the userâ€™s favorite cabinet.
The AC4TVmini will be available in June 2010 with an MSRP of $300.00.
