Hunter Amps has done it again! This little guy ROCKS!!! Here are the specs directly from the builder:

Here is my version of the early '60s VOX AC4. I built this circuit from the original 1960s schematic (which uses an entirely different preamp than the various reissues). This little box outputs six watts into an 8-inch Weber Signature Series speaker. The cabinet is dowel-joined New Zealand pine, with a comfortable stitched handle and rubber feet. This amp has three knobs on the front; volume, tone, a control knob for tremolo speed, and a power switch. There is also a three-position switch that allows you to select from three levels of preamp gain. A jack in the back allows you to plug in a footswitch to control the tremolo. It uses four tubes; an EZ81 rectifier, a 12AX7 for the tremolo, an EF86 pentode preamp tube, and an EL84 power tube. It comes with three new JJ tubes (EZ81, 12AX7, and EL84) and a NOS 6J32P (EF86). Finally, it is wired with a three-wire grounded power input plug, so you need not fear electrocution every time you touch your strings. I used no transistors or semiconductors, ensuring a completely authentic vintage sound.
