Recently I traded a bunch of left over gear for a used Vox AC4TV (10" speaker). I fell in love with the amp. Its amazing, love the tone, and it's loud enough for most gigs I play, and if not, I mic it. One of the things I love about it is the size, and I love 10" speakers. Upon purchase, I thought I'd get a second and run it stereo for shows. The purchase of a second AC4 wasn't pressing since I also have a Silverface Vibro Champ, also loaded with a 10" speaker. Well, last night, my Vibro Champ crapped out of me, and smoke starting coming out the instrument inputs. Not good. I powered the ol' girl down, and unplugged. I imagine getting her fixed will cost close the amount of getting a used AC4. Whether I go that route is for another thread. So, I've read just about every thread on this forum regarding AC4s, but I'd like to get some fresh opinions here. Handwired AC4s are out, and I'm looking at another AC4TV, AC4C1-BL, or the AC4C1-12. One thing I like about the TV is that it's pretty straight forward, but I rarely use the attenuator. I imagine the tone is somewhat different from the C1s as those are more "top boost" oriented and the TVs are not? I wouldn't say I'm not a fan of "master volume" amps, but I'm used to playing vintage style amps. A master volume could be a good or bad thing. The C1-12 intrigues me. Its beautiful, but I do fancy the 10" speakers. Anything else I should look for or know about? Oh, my band plays a mix of blues, rock, and dabble in psychedelia. I also play a lot of slide.
