PG's Joe Coffey is On Location in Anaheim, CA, for NAMM 2010 where he visits the VOX Amps booth. In this segment, we get introduced into the AGA70 Acoustic Amp. The AGA70 two-channel (Normal and Tube Pre equipped with a 12AU7 vacuum tube) amp. Each channel offers two inputs: Guitar (phone) and Mic (XLR), Lo-Z and Hi-Z level switch on each input; Mic inputs can provide phantom power. The controls include Bass, Middle, Treble (on each channel) and a Color feature that provides convenient single-knob control of the overall sound, emphasizing a wide range of performance techniques from picking arpeggios to strumming chords. Also, it has a DI output (balanced XLR), which is available for using the AGA with a larger sound system; a tuner output is also provided.

  • Create unusual harmonies, chord progressions, bass lines, and melodies using the blues scale.
