I was looking for a round response to my setup at home situation (you know! neighbors!) and this fits perfectly to that purpose. I've also considered Hiwatt's T10 Combo because of its nice clean sound and effects loop but chosen this Vox AC4 for its tonal response as it results a lot more usable to me at higher gain settings and has two knobs to adjust bass and treble instead of a single general tone control.
Fantastic recording and practice amp. I've even used it live, and if being pushed hard enough, can keep up with my AC30 no problem. I have heavily modified it in order to enhance the clarity and chime, and to make it a professional and dependable go-to amp for recording.
