VOX Announces The Ice 9 Overdrive Pedal
Ice 9 is the fourth in the VOX / Joe Satriani signature pedal series
VOX Amplification introduces the Ice 9 Overdrive, the fourth effect pedal created in their continuing collaboration with Joe Satriani. As with all of the previous VOX / Joe Satriani effect pedals, the Ice 9 has been created to provide a versatility of tone while meeting Satrianis strict standards. With two distinct overdrive modes, versatile tone-shaping and the ever-popular Moreswitch, the Ice 9 delivers a wide range of inspiring tones, yet remains remarkably easy to use. The name is borrowed from the title of one of Satriani's popular songs on his smash 1987 album Surfing with the Alien.
The Vintage / Modern mode switch provides access to two totally different overdrive voices; each is designed to Satrianis exacting specifications using carefully selected components. The Vintage mode employs a special op amp and premium diodes to offer an overdrive that is sweetly warm and classic, with just the right amount of sparkle and sustain. In contrast, the Modern voice utilizes a Germanium diode to kick up a cutting-edge overdrive that is altogether new and aggressive.
VOX Adds AGA150 To Acoustic Guitar Amplifier Line
VOX Amplification has added the new AGA150 to its Acoustic Guitar Amplifier series. Joining the recently launched AGA70, the upscale AGA150 boasts twice the power of the AGA70 (150 Watts vs. 70 Watts); adds an additional tweeter for a more refined high end; and features a compact and efficient power amp designed in conjunction with Bang and Olufsen to produce a super clean and powerful sound. The VOX AGA150 is designed from the ground up to meet the challenges of today's modern acoustic performer.
Both two-channel amps feature a Normal channel and a Tube Pre channel, complete with a 12AU7 dual triode vacuum tube. Each channel is equipped with a standard guitar input, as well as a microphone input with selectable phantom power. For the singer-instrumentalist, an electro-acoustic guitar or mic can be connected to each channel. An additional Lo-Z / Hi-Z switch on each input accommodates a variety of signal levels.
VOX Announces AC4TVmini
Class A, retro-style, all-tube mini amp debuts
VOX Amplification has added the new AC4TVmini to its amplifier lineup. Extremely portable, the AC4TVmini is ideal for recording, jamming with friends, rehearsals and more. Based on the popular VOX AC4 from the 1960s, this all-tube practice amp has been factory-modded with a premium transformer and select components for optimum tone.
This up-to-date Class A version retains the distinctive EL84 power tube of the original and features a 12AX7 pre-amp tube, plus an original VOX design 6.5" speaker. Adjusting the volume and tone settings can create a broad range of tones from a sweet, clean sound to the distinctive VOX overdrive sound. Stylish, clean and classic, the AC4TVmini borrows its retro-chic TVfront styling from the classic 1958 AC15. This vintage VOX design is still in use on todays AC15HTV from the VOX Heritage Collection.
