Musikmesse 2010: Vox announce the AGA150 Acoustic Guitar Amplifier
Posted on 24 Mar 2010 09:27 to category : Instruments News
The AGA Series of VOX Acoustic Guitar Amplifiers is now led by the new AGA150 revealed at Musikmesse 2010.
The new flagship of the VOX acoustic amp line - the AGA150 - delivers an impressive 150 Watts of power and features an all new tweeter to satisfy the most demanding acoustic musician in almost any scenario.
Rippling with power, this 150 Watt acoustic guitar amp is designed to perfectly project the subtle resonances and sweet, mellow tones of an acoustic instrument.
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 electroacoustic 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, imparting your guitar or vocal sound with the roundness and warmth so distinctive of the vacuum tube sound.
COLOR function and on-board effects add convenient control.
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.
Choose the perfect setting for any performance technique, whether it's rapid-fire arpeggios or solid strumming. A full complement of effects is also available on each channel.
The Chorus effect is selectable via a switch; the Reverb can be added in any amount using the Reverb knob. The AGA150 is all you need to complete your sound.
Versatile design offers the right connections for any situation.
The AGA150 provides stereo line inputs that can accept the signal from a keyboard or other musical instrument - even a multi-track recorder.
Use the AUX input and connect an MP3 player or other audio source to enjoy a jam session.
The DI (balanced XLR) output offers a convenient way to send your sound to a larger PA system without using a direct box, and still allowing the AGA150 to control your mix.
The Tuner output is always active, even when the main output is muted for silent tuning between songs and sets.
The Anti-Feedback control minimizes acoustic feedback, making the AGA150 a good choice as a stage monitor.
The optional VFS2 provides footswitch control of the Effect Bypass or All Mute functions, offering great flexibility during a live performance.
