By M. Kayan on November 28, 2009
Coming from a 20 watt solid state practice amp, this is definitely a step up.
I expected the tube distortion to sound more pleasing than that of my old solid state, but even the cleans are nicer - they have a sort of chimey quality.
I'm not sure if it's due to the tubes or the Celestion speaker.

I may never use this feature, but there is a speaker out jack to use with an external cab.

I picked up a variant with an 8" speaker to save space, but I believe it's identical to the 10" model otherwise.
I've had it for a few months now, and while it doesn't have the bells and whistles on some of Vox's modeling amps or Fender's tube-based Super Champ, I returned those amps and kept this one based solely on sound quality, which is highly subjective.

Not an amp for metal, but well suited to blues, jazz and classic rock. I don't usually like the amp's breakup above 50% gain. I may add an overdrive pedal to my setup.

The only thing I wish this amp had was a headphone jack.

I seldom write reviews but figured it might help some sitting on the fence. Like my opening remark, the hallmark of this great little amp (AC4TV8) is that it's incredibly fun to play and I can't put it down.
For tone snobs, what can I say? I've got about 15 tube amps (including pre-CBS Fenders and a true '63 Vox AC30 TB) and 35 yrs playing and this one not only makes me want to keep playing but is the most accessible of all. I went for the 8" version despite negative comments of the 1/10 Watt setting. Some say it's a novelty. Let me put it this way..........IT'S NOT!!! Is the tone as good as a non-attenuated amp, well no but it's "different" and still good and major fun. My only issue is it distorts too much past 3/4 volume (G&L MFD single coil pickups) but you can play and not really disturb others too much without resorting to headphones. I've been using a high quality Z Airbrake before this but even on my 4W 5F1 Tweed Champ it's too loud for family (unless it's not and my playing just grates on their eardrums). I have to stuff pillows around it even on 'Maximum Bedroom' setting (which also robs tone ...and overheats tubes). Plus the extra cables to run that setup....
Since I bought the AC4 for fun practice, I figured why not go all the way and get the 1/10W because the 10"-1/4W version seemed still just too loud and that defeats the purpose. I would even consider recording the 1/10W setting. It has a quality all it's own and definitely tube(y). I was hoping to not like it and return it having gotten the "want" out of my system but is a definite keeper....#16...oh well. But this one will not sit in a closet like the others. It's going in the living room. I'll keep my others on Airbrake attenuator but this one will be happily carried from room to room.

Very "VOX"-y sounding amp. If you want a "British invasion" sound, this is it in a small package. Not simulated, not modeled, just reduced in physical size. It doesn't sound like a Fender, and it doesn't sound like a Marshall, it sounds like its own thing.

Four watts is louder than you think. If you're used to how loud (say) a 40 watt amp is, you might expect 4 watts to be only 1/10th as loud. But watts don't work that way. Four watts is HALF as loud as 40. Four watts turned up to the point of distortion is not nearly as "wife safe" as you may be thinking when you see this amp. I used this at a jam session at a party before the band went on, the guitarist asked to use my amp. Granted it was a very small party in a small space, but that should prove it goes above "bedroom" levels.

In other words, you will find yourself needing to use the 1 watt and 1/4 settings for practicing, so be glad the amp has them. This was pretty much the feature that caused me to get this amp over the other <10 watt tube amps on the market these days.

It really does sound best on 4 watts, presumably because the speaker has a lot to do with the sound and only the full power setting is driving it to capacity. If I was going to record it, I'd probably go with the full power for the best tone, but the lower settings are good for practice.

There is not much clean headroom on this amp, but that's clearly by design. The cleans are beautiful and sparkly at low volumes, but it dirties up fast especially with loud pickups. You will find yourself using your guitar's volume pot to control the distortion. If you're after a really clean EARLY 60's sound, you will want to look in a Fender-wise direction. This amp is not that clean.

It's that good!
I was able to A/B this at a local shop against the Bugera (Behringer) 5 watt amp and the 8" Vox. After all, who doesn't want to save some money these days? This one came home with me. Solid construction, yes. EL84 tube goodness, yes. Decent low end response, yes. Great chimey tones, yes. The tone, oh yes! Hard to believe you can get such good tube warmth and distortion (when wanted) with an amp of low power. But it kills. Modify it if you like but it sounds great right out of the box. And the built-in attenuator works great. Sure the amp sounds best at full power, but it sounds better than you'd think at the lower power settings. Keep in mind, good is not cheap and cheap is not good. But you don't need to go the boutique amp route to get the tones you hear in your head either. So buy it. Now. As good as these are, you probably won't find one on the used market. It's that good!

Edited to add: I don't play metal. I don't play out. I live in a duplex. This amp is perfect for me, head and shoulders above the Fender Champion 600 I used to own. And it sounds equally well with humbuckers or single-coil guitars.
