Vox Amplification AC4TV Guitar Amplifier

VOX AC4TVIt’s back and it’s new! VOX Amplification is pleased to announce the AC4TV, an all tube 4-Watt, Class A performance driven EL84 featuring a 12AX7 in the pre-amp.

The AC4TV is based on the popular VOX AC4 from way back in 1961. The AC4TV combo as well as the AC4TVH head version (with matching V112TV 1 x 12″ extension cabinet), is an all-tube practice amp that has been factory-modded with a premium transformer and select components for optimum tone. Improving on the hardware of its vintage counterpart, this up-to-date Class A version retains the distinct sound of an EL84 powertube driven valve amp and features a 12AX7 pre-amp. All this powers the AC4TV’s custom-made Celestion 10-inch speaker, and the extension cabinet’s custom-made 12-inch speaker. These features enable both models to deliver clean, crunch or wonderfully saturated overdrive for a range of sonic options that is unmistakably VOX amplification.

A challenge confronting all-tube amps is to retain a full tone at lower volumes. To solve this issue, the AC4TV and AC4TVH feature a built-in power attenuator, with 4 Watt, 1 Watt and 1/4 Watt output levels, ensuring that players never lose that classic tube tone, even at the lowest listening levels. For situations when a fuller sound is desired, the AC4TV also adds a 16-Ohm speaker output for connection to an additional cabinet, such as the VOX V112TV.

Both models feature simple, elegant cabinetry with the “TV” front design first used on the classic AC15 from 1958 as well as some of today’s VOX Heritage Series models. The VOX AC4TV 4-Watt Class A Tube Amplifier will be available in February 2009 with a U.S. MSRP of $400. AC4TVH and V112TV cabinet pricing and availability are TBA.
