    Just use your DRRI and add a pedal for your dirt. The options you've mentioned seem like a downgrade in my opinion.

    DRRI + quality dirt pedal > any of the Vox amps you're considering.

    Point well taken!!!

      I played the new green one, and it sounded pretty much the same.

      Have you tried the Vox Pathfinder? Its a great solid state amp.

      The AC4TV is a tad farty with the stock tube.

      That's what inspired this post from my past.

        I had a white one. Loved it at first, but quickly tired of it. I had both an AC15, and an AC50cp2. Honestly, it sounded "Voxish" but it seriously lacked low-end. IMO, the Valvetronix line are far better amps for the same money.
