The Vox AC15C1 Custom 15-watt combo amplifier puts authentic vintage tone in your hands without breaking the bank! Based on the more-than-legendary Vox AC15 amplifier that was introduced in 1958, this sweet combo is ready to produce the clear, chiming tones that have seduced guitarists for more than a half century. And when you're ready to get crunchy, the AC15C1 will break up in a glorious way without becoming deafeningly loud.

Check out Owen O'Malley's demo via Gearwire.com:

Two Killer Channels: Normal and Top-Boost

The versatility of the Vox AC15C1 Custom combo amp lies in its two separate input channels: Normal and Top-Boost. The Normal channel immediately delivers the warm, classic sound that you recognize from countless famous recordings from the 1960s and beyond. When you're done recreating the guitar sounds heard on Rubber Soul, plug into the Top Boost section and get a distinctive tone that benefits from the highly musical Treble and Bass controls. Each of these two channels is equipped with its own Volume control as well.

Taking your tonal crafting power even further, you'll find Tone Cut and Volume controls in the Master section. Tone Cut works by modulating the signal passing through the power stage yielding a darker, richer tone. Then, you'll find yet another level of tone control playing with the balance between the Master Volume control and the individual Volume knobs on each channel.

One Killer Celestion G12M Greenback Speaker

A Vox amplifier wouldn't be complete without its distinctively designed preamp with 3 x 12AX7 tubes, and the famous 12-inch Celestion G12M Greenback speaker. No less essential to this tone is the authentic spring reverb, giving you everything from a shallow roomy verb to a far bigger and more expansive sound a la The Ventures or Dick Dale. The final element in the Vox AC15C1's unique tonal character is its famous Tremolo, with adjustable Rate and Depth. Both the Reverb and the Tremolo can also be controlled with the optional VOX VFS2 footswitch (not included), allowing you to turn the Reverb and Tremolo effects on and off as you play.

Goes Way Beyond 15 Watts

The Vox AC15C1 Custom comes with a switchable 8/16 ohm output jack -- extremely useful for when you want to connect to an external speaker cabinet, and mute the internal speaker. A second speaker jack allows you to run an additional 16 ohm cabinet along with the internal speaker for a fuller, more spatialized sound.

Features:

- 2 channels: Normal and Top Boost
- 15W 12" Celestion G12M Greenback speaker
- 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes
- 2 x EL84
- Tremolo
- Spring reverb
- 15 Watts RMS output into 16 Ohms
- Optional VFS2A Footswitch

Product Description

First introduced in 1958, the AC15 combo has been the amp of choice for countless guitar players throughout the world. Drawing on more than 50 years of amp-building expertise, the AC15C1 Custom Series offers maximum tonal dexterity.

An Evolution in Tone
VOX Custom Series amps offer two channels: Normal and Top-Boost. Each channel is equipped with its own Volume control, and the Top Boost channel offers highly interactive Treble and Bass tone controls. This powerful channel pairing provides an abundance of tone-crafting control, letting you dial in a classic sound that is all your own.

Both channels rely on the Tone Cut and Volume controls in the Master section. The Tone Cut control operates in the power stage rather than the preamp stage, allowing an additional degree of tone-shaping. The Master Volume control works in conjunction with the individual volumes of each channel to create just the right degree of gain-staging. By balancing the individual and Master volumes, the Custom Series can deliver everything from a clean VOX "chimey" sound to a powerful overdriven tone.

Sound in Motion
You can sweeten the sound of your Custom Series amplifier using the VOX Classic Tremolo effect. Both the speed and the depth are adjustable, allowing you to generate just the sound you want. A warm Spring Reverb is also included on all Custom Series amps, adding spaciousness to the sound. All Custom Series amps can use the VOX VFS2 footswitch, allowing you to turn the Reverb and Tremolo effects on and off as you continue to play.

Power Sharing
The AC15C1 combo makes use of 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes and uses pair of EL84 tubes to drive a single 12-inch Celestion G12M Greenback. All models in the Custom Series offer a switchable 8/16 ohm output jack for powering an external speaker cabinet when you need to speak with a little more authority; using this jack will mute the internal speakers. Additionally, a 2nd extension speaker jack allows you to run an extra 16 ohm cabinet along with the internal speakers for a fuller sound.
zZounds Expert Review
The Vox AC15C1 is a classic amp that has stood the test of time. It has everything you need to rock right out of the box. One great thing about this amp is its two extension loudspeaker jacks: you can either plug in a cabinet to use as your sole speaker, or use the second jack to feed your 16-ohm cabinet alongside the internal speakers to get a fuller sound. The AC15C1's two channels (normal and top boost) let you change the type of sound that is being pushed through the amp, and with its built-in spring reverb, you can add some spaciousness to your sound. I could go on and on about this amp, but the best way to find out why this is one of the most popular amps sold, is to try one out yourself -- you won't be disappointed. It's a must for anyone looking for a great tube amp at a reasonable price.

"Vox AC15 112"
Overall: This is one of the very best amps in this price range, without question. I've always like vintage amps and own several --54 Bassman 115, 59 Bassman 412, Concert 410, 37 Gibson EH-150 112, as well as a Peavy Delta Blues which is a great blues amp. Never owned a Vox before this one. I had tried a friends and fell in love with it. Having played for more than 40 years, I learned long ago that the 15-30 watt amps are my faves because I can overdrive them naturally and get better sound than any pedal can create. It also gives you great flexibility in your live performance by using your guitar's volume controls to achieve more drive with increased volume. The unique part of this amp is 2 fold. First, of course, you can dial in the clean chimey sounds that the early Beatles, the Byrds, and the Tom Petty get with the 3 12AX7 preamp tubes combined with EL84 tubes--a match made in heaven. I expected that. But what really surprised me was the unique tone you can get by overdriving this little monster. The natural overdrive of this amp delivers more natural sustain than I've ever gotten w/o a box (or without using a huge Marshall stack in a large setting). The natural sustain hangs on completely until you hit the next note. And let's face it, in 90% of the places most of us play, 15 watts of pure tube power is all you'll need. So getting this kind of sustaining overdrive in a small amp is really special. I play mainly blues, but also some rock. I know some blues purists will castigate me for leaving my 54 bassman (24 watts) at home and bringing my Vox, but I remember playing with Little Milton, who always played through an AC30, and he was a blues diety. Do yourself a favor before you spend $600 on another amp and try out this baby---spend a little time with it in a room because the settings are very sensitive, but make sense once you spend about 10 minutes with it. The spring reverb is adequate, not great. The tremolo is useful and more than adequate, but the tone is the king in this little beast. Don't let the brand name fool you--this amp can do it well in rock, blues or country.
Style of Music: blues and rock
