yoTrakkz's review"great amp"

The AC1 RV custom is a five star combo. The only 15 watt combo in production that can touch it IMHO is the Fender Princeton Reverb, which is Made in the USA, and costs 300 dollars more (actually the two amps make a great set for home and studio or playing small venues). If you want tone, and not a "kitchen sink" control panel, for this price, you cant beat it. VOX really nailed the look and sound this time. With vintage style Single coil pickups, the AC1 RV provides the true 1958 - 1963 JMI sound. With hotter single coil pickups or hum buckers this amp overdrives a lot smoother and easier than the original.


Through the TOP BOOST channel an MIM Standard Telecaster sounds very glassy and bright, and very lively. The notes pop and ring and you can hear every note in a chord. Just like an old original VOX amp. The same setting turned over halfway up, and using something like an SG, provides a compressed ,saturated,, crispy,- fried Overdrive sound .


The same rig with the channels jumped with an ABY box adds bottom, and low mids and even more harmonic complexity, Add good distortion pedal and you cant believe its a VOX anymore. This is a professional quality instrument, not a toy. At this price its an insane bargain.


The reverb has also been redone, and sounds fantastic. Tremelo is a nice feature for sure! Love the size, power, and tone of this amp. Vox has hit a home run with this one. My ONE gripe about it is the fact that it does not come with a footswitch, you have to purchase one...but that's it. Amazing amp, great price, try one, you will not be sorry. and new upgrade and design on the AC1 RV could not be better!

iamqman's review"Awesome!"

This is surprisingly a very cool little practice tool. It has two channels one clean and one overdrive. But here is where this things get very cool. You can plug your CD player of Mp3 player into and jam along within the same amp. It has an AUX input for hooking up your ipod or other device.

In addition to those features It has drum beats built in to the amp which allows you to play along with the drum patterns. This is a great device for practicing and staying long with a drummer. I great tool for guitars players to get their timing and chops down before answering a craigslist ad looking for a guitar player. Plus it has a tempo control knob to speed up or slow down the speed of the drum tempo.

The sound of this thing isn't the best. But it does sound good for being what it is built for. Plug whatever guitar you have into this device because it isn't going to give you the greatest tone but this is rather a tool for personal development.

The have designed the analog circuitry after the Vox amplugs which are very good for pocket amps. The amplugs sound very good surprisingly. So you have the tone of those preferably the Vox Ac30.

Any guitar application this thing is going to help you get stronger as a guitar player.


This is the next amps I feel other manufacturers will start to mass produces. These are great practicing tools for developing the skills to play along with perfect timing. I wish I had one of these when I first started playing....I feel I would have developed a lot quicker with my timing.

At new these units come in at around $60 which is a steal. I recommend this to anyone trying to get a better handle on their timing and band playing. These are portable and can take headphones for quiet jamming.

Very easy to use. The Vox can also be plugged into a sound example to operate the BAR.


This is a small portable amplifier and low-power work therefore useless to the correct difficile.Sons better than the Fender Mini Twin 57. Sounds clear agréables.Overdrive not killing your ears.
