Summary: This little amp would be a great deal at any price, not to mention the $230-250 price that it sells for new! It's truly a tone machine. And it sounds so good doing what it does... I have to be careful not to drool on myself when playing through this amp.
Summary: What can i say? this is the best purchase i have ever done. INCREDIBLE amp for 250$. sounds unreal. warm when its needed. clean when its needed. love the tube drive. actually this will make your pedals sound incredible, makes them sound with their real sound. BUY THIS.
Summary: It's that good! I was able to A/B this at a local shop against the Bugera (Behringer) 5 watt amp and the 8" Vox. After all, who doesn't want to save some money these days? This one came home with me. Solid construction, yes. EL84 tube goodness, yes. Decent low end response, yes.
Put some vintage tubes in this thing and it will blow you away!

Summary: I didnt know how this little unit would sound, with a simple circuit consisting of a 12AX7 preamp tube and an EL84 power tube. I am picky when it comes to tubes, so first thing before even turning this amp on, I replaced the tubes with vintage Mullards (not the Russian crap!).
Summary: I have the AC4TV10. How can words describe the greatness of this amp? For one thing, it sounds so much better than anything I've heard in this price range that my choice was easy. Comparing this to the Bugera V5 5-Watt Class-A Valve Amplifier Combo with Reverb And Power Attenuator A/B in the store,...
Summary: I play a Melancon P90 artist with 2 humbuckers, pre-amp and LRBaggs piezo. I've spent nearly $4K on two amps and four pedals to use just with this guitar. I wanted something small and lightweight for playing upstairs for the summer, easily accessible and not too loud.
Summary: I set out looking for a good amp that could get good tone at low volumes in my house. I don't like practicing with headphones. When I first heard the AC4TV I could immediately tell the difference between the solid state amps I was using and this tube amp.
Summary: Very "VOX"-y sounding amp. If you want a "British invasion" sound, this is it in a small package. Not simulated, not modeled, just reduced in physical size. It doesn't sound like a Fender, and it doesn't sound like a Marshall, it sounds like its own thing. Four watts is louder than you think.
Summary: Its definitely not as versatile as the super champ xd or something in a similar price range but god is the tone delicious. I'd compromise a ton of features for great tone any day. In my opinion, for this price range, this is the definitely the best buy.
