Not too long ago, I was soliciting opinions on a lightweight amp thanks to a new cardiac issue. Long story short, I really, really love the tone of the Vox AC10, but it's just enough over my weight limit to be a problem. So, given that I've got a big milestone birthday next month, even the wife was persuaded that maybe it's time I invested in an amp that's exactly what I want and need for gigging, and won't blow up my heart (always a plus in my book). I intend to post a full review of its tones once I've had a few days to play. But Gretsch-Talk member Winnie Thomas really helped me out tremendously, getting his Cyclone model down below 25 pounds. Heck, he even indulged my inordinate love of Vox and put diamond grille cloth on it! The result is 22 pounds, 1.6 ounces of beautiful tone. The Vox DNA, as Synchro put it, is here in spades. But there's something more here, a massive zone of subtle differences in its wide area of breakup that makes this something unique. Can't thank Winnie enough. And really, what an amp! It's got everything I want in an amp. And he even put in a bright switch for me. It's actually bigger than it may appear, somewhere around half the size of my AC30, but almost one-fourth the weight. Yep, one fourth!!!
