The AC10 was one of the first amplifiers to bear the VOX name and has long been adored for his ability to achieve rich, articulate tube tone at very manageable volumes. For this reason, the AC10 has become a highly coveted piece of VOX history since its discontinuation in 1965. Now, nearly 50 years later, VOX is proud to introduce the AC10C1, a modern take on this classic design. More portable than the AC15 and more powerful than the AC4, the AC10C1 features the classic Top Boost tone circuit that provides an array of classic and modern tones. Now equipped with reverb and a master volume, the AC10C1 is the perfect companion for the home, studio or stage.

Rented an AC15 to try out the Vox tone but tried it side by side with one of these. Although it lacks a little bass due to a smaller speaker it gets to the point in much shorter time with not too much tweaking. I crank the Vol nearly full, the gain at perhaps 1, bass on full and treble about 1. The reverb, despite being digital and not spring sounds pretty good, and its at 4. Thats it. It sounds pretty clean but a little midrangy. A Tube Screamer kicks it real nice if one needs to solo or play a dirty rhythm. Like any Vox, no heavy metal here. And not heavy either so very portable.

My biggest problem with my "big" amps is it is hard to get a good sound at reasonably low volume. I side by sided the AC10 with a few other apps of similar or higher price and power output at L&M Hamilton. It came down to the AC10 and Blues Jr. I already have a couple bigger Fender amps and although the Blues jr fit me like a glove there was something special with the Vox tone. I then did A/B with the AC15 and I found for my taste and needs the 10 was actually preferable. If it was my only amp the 15 or more likely 30 would be the one, but for a practice amp the 10 hits all the checks with only one minor complaint: No f/x loop. I would rather they ditched the digital reverb and put in an f/x loop. Great for Brian May, the Stones, Beatles etc... cleans up nicely, gets 1960s dirty, takes overdrive pedals like a dream.

Found one used and am very pleased. British sound and Tube tone in smaller package. Would be nice to have headphone jack, however it sounds so good, just have to be aware of my neighbours. Feels louder than 10 watts. Should have lots of pedal potential.

I've owned 2 of these that I bought used. I replaced the stock tubes with tungsol 5741 in v1, tungsol 12ax7 in v1 and tungsol el84 tubes. Took less than 10 minutes to do myself and am very happy with the reduced input gain. This amp is also very warm right off the go which was suprising for a 10" speaker and a very light amp. Would highly recommend to someone looking for a great tube tone in a light compact package. The reverb isnt very pleasant. Keep it dialed below 9 o'clock for best results. Cant be beat for the price and practicality for a great tube sound. Sounds much different than an ac15 or 30. Try one out!

First off, it’s just beautiful to look at - I’ve been hooked on the look of VOX since first seeing pictures of The Beatles on stage circa ‘64. The AC10c1 also has a mighty sound for its size, and size is why I picked it up (My Ac15 got heavier each year I got older). The Master volume lets you drive the tubes into sweet saturated distortion without bringing the house down. The digital reverb gets the job done, just keep the dial around 2-3. The amp seems to like my Gretsch Electromatic Jet best - the two sound huge together. Highly recommended.

I use this amp for rehearsal and small gigs - beautiful clear sound. On stage, use it as my monitor and runs through my Boss ME-80 to a Bose system. Good quality, tube tone with plenty of punch. Would be perfect if it had two channels, but for the price, you can?t complain! Highly recommend this amp!

Great amp for practice, recording, small gigs, has that VOX tone, however a little bright, when plugging in a Gretch Hollow Body for jazz, breaks up a bit early so I did the following MOD. Replaced the 12ax7 tubes with a 5751, JJ. they have about 30% less gain, and WOW, a LOT cleaner head room, my Gretch, Telecaster, Les. Paul, all sound better with this cheap Mod, and you still get the break up when you dial it up, when you want it. With this Mod 50.00 I much prefer this amp to the Blued Junior I got rid of.

I've owned my AC10 for two years now. I play mainly blues rock and classic metal. It's nice and loud when you want it but still has good tones when turned right down for apartment practice. I originally used a Les Paul with it but moved over to a Telecaster because it was very noisy with the humbuckers. The Tele works alot nicer with it. My only complaint is the lack of a headphone jack which makes late night practice a bit harder.

cool little amp. fairly loud, great vox chime, takes pedals well, and most important it's super light. I like to boost it with either a rat, or a plimsoul. Or I hook it through my v30 2x12 cabinet to take it over the top. My only complaint would be the reverb could be a little bit better. It's still useable though at low settings. Well done vox.

First one I got had to be returned, the tubes rattled so bad it was completely unusable. The second one I received was perfect. Not a peep from the tubes. This amp has phenomenal Vox tone and at a fraction of the weight of the AC15 I would highly recommend this one for a grab and go amp. Super happy with this one.

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
