NAMM 2012: Vox introduces AC4HW1 Hand-Wired Series guitar amp

NAMM 2012 PRESS RELEASE: The Hand-Wired Series reigns as both the flagship and as a popular favourite among the many families of Vox guitar amplifiers. This esteemed series now welcomes a new addition; the AC4HW1 mini combo amp.

The all-tube chassis uses two 12AX7 tubes in the pre-amp and a single EL84 vacuum tube in the power stage, pumping out four watts of power through a 12-inch Celestion G12M Greenback speaker.

The Volume control, Bass and Treble tone controls, and Master Volume provide any player with plenty of sonic variety. The HOT/COOL switch offers either the coveted Vox Top Boost tone, or a pure and rich gain that bypasses the tone circuit completely.

For relaxed jamming at home,rehearsing, or performing on stage, the AC4HW1 Vox Hand-Wired Series is all the amp you'll ever need.
