Ultra compact new model promised to deliver rich acoustic resonance
NAMM 2012 PRESS RELEASE: Vox AGA Series amps have become favourites on the acoustic scene, thanks to their astounding sound.
Created for the acoustic performer, the AGA4-AT builds on this solid foundation with a Class A all-tube chassis, a dynamic full-range speaker and a smooth, deep Reverb to deliver serious acoustic sound even at home!
With a sense of power that exceeds its class, this amp delivers the fidelity, versatility, and reliability that more than meet the needs of playing live in small venue. The AGA4-AT is an ideal amp not only for acoustic/electric guitars, but for any acoustic instrument equipped with a pickup - such as fiddles, mandolins, ukuleles and flutes - and is sure to find a role in many musical scenarios.
Serious all-tube sound
The AGA4-AT features a Class A amplifier creating four watts of all-tube power. The preamp stage is driven by a 12AX7 dual-triode vacuum tube; power comes from a single EL84 pentode tube.
Equipped with a 6.5" full-range Vox Custom speaker, the AGA4-AT projects an excellent balance from the low to high ranges; enabling you to enjoy the subtle resonances and distinctive tone of your acoustic instrument. Even with all this sound and power, the AGA4-AT is extremely compact and portable, weighing just 6 kg.
Versatile controls offer creative freedom
In addition to separate tone and volume controls, the AGA4-AT's panel provides control for adding just the right amount of the rich, smooth Reverb effect - indispensable for creating a complete full-bodied acoustic tone without requiring any additional equipment.
Use the AUX IN jack to connect any external audio source such as a keyboard, an MP3 player - or even backing tracks on your laptop computer, meaning you can enjoy casual jam sessions with great acoustic tone.
