NAMM 2009: Vox Amplification Introduces AC4TV Guitar Amplifier
Vox Amplification Introduces AC4TV Guitar Amplifier
NAMM 2009 REVEALS:
VOX Amplification introduces the AC4TV, a 4-Watt, Class A Tube Amplifier based on the popular VOX AC4 from the 1960s. 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 distinctive EL84 power tube of the original and features a 12AX7 powered pre-amp, driving 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.
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.
