The Hand-Wired Series reigns as both the flagship and as a popular favorite among the many families of VOX amplifiers. This esteemed series now welcomes a new addition; the AC4HW1 mini combo amp. The all-tube chassis uses two 12AX7 tubes in the pre-amp and a single EL84 vacuum tube in the power stage, pumping out 4 Watts of power through a 12-inch Celestion G12M Greenback speaker. The Volume control, Bass and Treble tone controls, and Master Volume provide any player with plenty of sonic variety. The HOT/COOL switch offers either the coveted VOX Top Boost tone, or a pure and rich gain that bypasses the tone circuit completely. For relaxed jamming at home, rehearsing, or performing on stage, the AC4HW1VOX Hand-Wired Series is all the amp you’ll ever need.

I love this amp!!!


Let me start by saying I was in the market for what, in my head at least, was a pro quality, top notch amp but with low wattage. Most of the low wattage stuff I had checked out seemed almost like toys and not something fit for discriminating tastes. They all were a compromise, too boxy, too simplistic(not enough control/versatility), or just plain boring. I just picked this amp up from Sam Ash today and I'm in love. It sounds great with every guitar I plug into it as well as with my pedals. If you want a decent amount of gain at low volumes you'll want an OD pedal, but otherwise between the two inputs and the hot and cool modes you can get a tone of tones out of this thing. The cleans are incredible, all that chimey Vox tone you're looking for. All in all, you can't go wrong with this amp if you are looking for a small package with a big sound at reasonable volume. It's built solid (mine had a little rattle at first but nothing a few tightened screws on the cabinet couldn't fix) and also comes with a cover and foot switch to go between hot and cool mode. Anywho, this thing kills it, if you want low wattage without sacrificing quality and still want a pro quality amp, this it it!
