This was the first Vox amp that I had ever bought. I was big on U2 at the time and wanted to get the amp that the Edge was using. He had a vintage AC30 which I wasn't about the slap down $4000 to get one from the 60's, so I opted for a reissue unit. I have to say this unit wasn't that bad at all tone wise.

It was made in Chine which I didn't check before I bought it, otherwise I wouldn't have got it. I would have bought an a few year old one that was still made in the UK. Buying a cheap manufactured Chinese made product that was once made in Europe or even anything made in the US now in Red China goes against everything inside me. So shortly after buying it I dumped it very quickly.

The sound I got from this amp wasn't bad at all. I wasn't used to Vox's at the time and the EQing was a little different then the Fender or Marshall front panels. After some use I got the hang of it.

I mostly used this with overdrive pedals and delays. I never turned this thing up to get that cranked Vox Ac30 tone famlliar with Brian May or Tom Petty. I mostly used a Ibanez TS9 and a TC Electronics G Major with this unit. I got some good pop and mild rock tone with it. Never was I going to get a Slash or hard rock tone. It just is not capable of doing that. Even with a Les Paul I was able to get a good classic rock tone similar to some U2 songs. After I felt that the Vox wasn't my thing and of course Chinese made I dumped it for a Marshall.


The tone from the amp is decent but I would never buy this thing again. If I ever got another Vox I would get a reissue UK made or plunge for a vintage unit. At new these units run at around $1500 and that is a lot for something made in China. You can get an older one made in the UK for that price and you can keep your integrity.

I wouldn't recommend this amp to anyone. Save you money and buy a used UK made one or get a clone amp made by Hayseed Amps.
