VOX Announces AC1 RhythmVOX Mini Bass Amp

VOX AC1RV ampThe amp makers at Vox have translated their mini guitar amp to the bass world with the introduction of the AC1 RhythmVOX Bass, a portable practice combo that weighs in at only 19.4 ounces.

Similar to its predecessor, the new model includes 66 built-in rhythm/song patterns including 8-beat, blues, funk, reggae, irregular patterns, and more. The tempo and level for the patterns are controlled by separate knobs, with a tempo range of 40-240bpm. An Aux input allows for plugging in an mp3 player or other external device.

For tonal control, the AC1RV Bass amp has a tone knob as well as two sound variations: bright and normal. Tone can also be affected via the Drive control. The amp can run on either a 9V adapter or 6 AA batteries, which supply up to 26 hours of life. The price point has not been officially announced but is expected to be around $59.99.
