NAMM 2017: Year of the Head?
Hotone and others did it on the cheap module-mini-heads, now VOX has jumped in with tubey-flavored front end head + 50W Class D oomph, weighing in at a meager 1.1lbs. So far looking kinda pricey and each one is amp voicing-specific (AC30/TEH ROCKZ/KLEEN), but they do seem to sound decent. Now available at Chapperland-upon-Guildford, Surrey.
Dang, another small affordable Vox-flavoured thing.
Kinda annoying they've split it to THREE(!) different versions; I can't believe there's an insane amount of difference between the Clean and AC30 versions.
YT comments suggest they're going for £200 online somewhere (no link given), which isn't too bad I guess. Will be interesting to try one next to a AC15 or something. _________________ andrew floss musics
is that about equal to a 50 watt solid state amp with no speaker that costs the same? and doesn't make any noise ?
My 500w PA system is pretty loud and was very cheap too; does that make it better than your amp?
The Voxes are £200 not-even-out-yet brand new, I'm sure used prices will get to the £125-£150 mark after a year.
Vox has a Class D power-amp so is probably pretty loud, compared to the 50w solidstate amps we dimed as kids. Plus a headphone/recording output, tone controls, switchable impedance and is a super lightweight head.
It's a totally different thing, so comparing it to that one amp you have is seems pretty redundant. _________________ andrew floss musics
The AC sounds nice. A bit sceptical of their marketing though. Wonder how much better and tube-like this would this be compared to a £30 Sansamp clone and power amp, which does all shades of voxy gain and has a bonkers eq stack, and sits on a pedal board.
