Video Review - Vox AGA70 Acoustic Guitar Amplifier

July 20, 2010
PG's Acoustic Editor Gayla Drake Paul walks us through her latest review of the Vox AGA70 Acoustic Guitar Amplifier.

The AGA70 is ideal for the acoustic performer because it's designed to perfectly project the subtle resonances and sweet, mellow tones of the acoustic guitar. Each of the two channels (Normal and Tube Pre) is equipped with a standard guitar input, as well as a microphone input with selectable phantom power. An electro-acoustic guitar or mic can be connected to each channel, making this the perfect amp for a singer-instrumentalist. An additional Lo-Z / Hi-Z switch on each input accommodates a variety of signal levels.

The Tube Pre channel preamp features a 12AU7 (ECC82) dual-triode vacuum tube.

In addition to Bass, Middle, and Treble tone controls, each channel provides an effective COLOR control. Working in harmony with the traditional EQ, the COLOR knob allows you to quickly shift the tonal response to match your performance. This additional control accommodates a broad variety of sounds ranging from thick and robust to sparkling and clean.

Also, it features onboard Reverb (both channels) and an on/off switch for a Chorus effect.
