I know, I'm a little behind in getting one of these, but it just sort of happened. Here's how it came about. The wife and I are having twins next year, so as a result my music room is getting turned into a nursery. Cleaned out the room, and had a bunch of little things along with some drum hardware that just wasn't going to get used. Packed it up, hauled it to my local used guitar store, and traded it all, plus $7 and came home with my AC4. I've always loved small amps and I have a 76 Vibro Champ w/10" speaker I use regularly at gigs. I can play pretty decent sized rooms with it (unmic'd) because our drummer isn't crazy loud. I've been wanting a second Champ, but they seem to be in demand right now so the prices are going up. I came across the AC4 just in time with little out of pocket. Since my VC performs so well at shows, I figured I would have similar results with my AC4. Played it at rehearsal last night, and it sounded freakin' great! The volume was on 9:00ish with the guys not having any problems hearing it. It breaks up a sooner than my VC, but it sounds killer! I've got a show tomorrow night, and I'm looking forward to breaking her in. No mods, yet. May not need them, but we'll see. I play a 2006 Epiphone Riviera>Tuner>MI Audio Blues Pro>LPB-1>AC4. Oh, there's a wah in there too. Takes pedals really well, and is amazingly touch sensitive. Cleans up nicely when I very my pick attack. I'll report back after the gig.
