â€” Class A, retro-style, all-tube mini amp debuts â€”
MELVILLE, NY, August 19, 2010 â€” VOX Amplification is now shipping the new AC4TVmini. 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 is now available with an MSRP of $300.00.
