Guitarteach, i disagree. The vox ac4 is a sweet little amp, vox chime and sparkle in a portable package. Definitely loud enough for now and a long time to come, and its definitely a class amp. But for the more important matter...valvestate, how much is the j&h in sing dollars? I was looking at catalinbread dls, 250 from SV guitars...if the j&h is cheaper i will be emailing guitar77 soon. Thanks for the information! I didnt know that they were still open for appointments, only that they closed down.
