From The Beatles to Brad Paisley, many legendary players have relied on Vox amps to carve out their tone and make great music. Not content to rest on the laurels of past glories, Vox is still making cool amps that many modern guitarists have turned on to, but just as many players love the old stuff and build their sound on simple tube platforms that have launched thousands of licks. For these folks, there may be nothing better than the Vox AC15C1. Vox has made the AC15 in one form or another since 1958, so you know it is a proven performer. The AC15C1 pumps out 15 heavy-duty watts of EL34 goodness through a single 12-inch Celestion G12M Greenback speaker. The amp’s preamp section runs on three 12AX7 tubes for maximum tone-shaping power.

The Vox AC15C1 has two channels, Normal and Top-Boost, each with its own volume control. The Top-Boost channel also features highly interactive tone controls for bass and treble. This two-channel system allows players to dial in the exact sound they wish to attain. Both channels employ the Tone Cut and volume controls in the amp’s Master section. The Tone Cut works as part of the power stage of the amp rather than the preamp stage, where most amp’s tone shaping is done, which gives the Vox an added tone tweak not always found on other amps. The Master Volume lets the AC15C1 shift easily from classic Vox chime to smooth modern overdrive. Add in the on-board reverb and tremolo and the Vox becomes an unbeatable small amp.

If that still is not enough, you can even get the AC15C1 in limited edition Vintage Red covering that pushes the amps’ cool factor into the stratosphere. Hmmm, sounds like a trip to a Vox dealer is in order, doesn’t it? Get down to one and claim your AC15C1 today, before someone else beats you to it.
