I bought this amp used, in '04. It's a UK made model, and I love it. Is it a Vox clone? Clean channel, I think so. Very chimmy, beautiful breakup at 5 and above; sweet spot at 8! Drive channel, to me, is very plexi in it's tone and drive. I'm running Mullards ECC83 in V1 and V2, and a Sovtek ECC83 LPS, and a matched quad of Mullard El84. The reverb is there, accutronics on mine. It's not Fender or Ampeg, but it doesn't suck either. I run it with a Blues Jr. and get that verb from it. This is one of my most favorite amps. I've owned or have borrowed some goodies over the years; a first year Super Reverb, '64, borrowed a '66 AC15 twin for awhile. This amp sounds as good as any of them, albeit a bit different. It's a circuit board, but whatevs, it kicks ass. Loud as Phok!! The places I'm likely to gig at, and have, I don't get to turn it up past 2.5. And that sucks! It has two 10" Vox Bulldogs in it, and I connect a 12" extension cab. This amp has 2/8 ohm ouputs, and will run a full stack if you like, and I have ran a Line6 4x12 with vintage 30's and it sounded the best yet! Ideally, I'd like a 2x12 cab to go with the 2/10"s. Great amp! The only time I had a problem... i had no load on it when I switched it on... OOPS! Rookie mistake or what!! Otherwise, it's never failed, E V A S!
