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.

The Models

AC15C1: 15 Watts, Single 12" Celestion G12M Greenback Speaker

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 a pair of EL84 tubes to drive a single, 12" 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.

Has the tone, has classic vox chime. Enough clean head room. Takes pedals like a chamo. Running a JHS Kilt and Mad Professor Little Green Wonder through it. One of the best purchases I've ever made.

Great amp has really brought out the sound of my Les Paul, classic sound! I am using a y cable to dial in the normal and top boost channel at the same time. I am still experimenting with tones but this amp is a keeper and fantastic value

Owned it for over one year and it is a responsive amp, lots of power and volume, excellent spring reverb. I A/B two amps, the Vox and a Fender Deluxe Reverb and the balance is great. Takes pedals well. Try it.

Clean and classic all-tube tone that you would expect from a VOX AC. Incredible amp ... just incredible. It sounded great in the store but at home it is just monstrous!

This amp is a great deal if you're looking for a great little tube amp capable of handling small to medium sized gigs with a p.a, at home or studio recording and general jamming etc. Most people will think that a Vox is only good for the Brit invasion and Beatles type of music, but this thing is incredibly versatile. With the tweaking of the knobs in the top boost chanel input, you can get anything from rockin' blues, to full out rock n' roll, and if you dial in a cleaner sound, you can get a great twangy clean sound (with a bit of 'dirt' on top) for early 50's rock n roll and rockabilly type tones as well. It's not too heavy, not too loud, you can get it to break up at lower volumes if you crank the channel volume and keep the master volume low, or you can get great clean sounds, even surf like reverb, and classic tremolo sounds, and you don't necessarily need the foot switch either, it only turns the rev/trem on and off anyhow, so, anyone who is used to tweaking the amp in the middle of a song on stage will have no problems with adjusting this amp easily by reaching back and turning a knob or two. The dials are laid out well and easy to figure out after a little messing around with the amp when you get it home, and after you're used to what the knobs do, it's a brilliant little tone monster to have. For the price, you really can't go wrong with this amp, especially for the roots rock music type players, those looking for clean yet dirty, twangy and clean to screaming loud solos, this amp does it all, and for under $700. Try one out, even if you're typically a Fender or Marshall guy usually, this amp just might surprise and impress you.

I bought the amp a few years back, and thought I made a mistake. After fidgeting and learning how to use this amp I couldn't believe the tones you can get with this. I play a 92 strat with LIndy Fralin hot for blues and a 97 Les Paul with the Custom PAF pick-ups. Both are awesome if you looking for the the British invasion...to hard rock and overdrive blues. Tough to get a really clean sound out of it, but if you want that add a Fender Deluxe Reverb to your Aresnal. If I had to choose one, I would go with the Vox.....Solid Closed Back - heavy solid construction....and almost as important as the sound, .....It's VOX....and it looks really cool to boot.

I was in the market for a classic tube amp, under $1000. I have owned the ac15 for about a month and have played it everyday. I couldn't be happier with the versatility and variety of tones this amp produces. I think it may be comparable, cheaper alternative to the more expensive Fender Deluxe...but I don't have enough experience to make that statement definitively. If you're a fan of: Johnny Marr(the smiths); John Squire(stone roses), The Edge, Brian May, Duffy(the Cult), Jimmy Page etc. you'll love this amp. Unless you gig at very big venues, you do not need the Ac30...the 15 is loud enough!! The only downsides I've experienced: -no foot switch to change from Normal to Top boost channel -difficult to achieve an overdrive tone at lower volumes...I recommend the Boss Blues Driver or Super Overdrive pedal...if you want an overdrive at lower volumes.

I wanted to get an amp that would give me that vintage tone but also be the only amp I need for the whole set. This covers all the bases. Takes the vast array of pedals I use better than any other amp I've owned amp loves my P90's. So glad I bought this amp, It is heavy for it's wattage but I can can actually use the wattage.

Just got this amp as my first tube amp! Great amp, which countless guitar players will agree on. Love the different tones you can get on this and plays very well with a full set of pedals! Love the Vox chime and for being 15 watts, it is plenty loud for the gigs I play! Would recommend this amp to anyone who is serious about tone and sound!

Originally bought the AC30. Loved the tone but it was too loud and heavy for my needs. I gig in all venues around winnipeg and I play loud! the AC15 is perfect cause I can crank the power stage almost half way (still a little too loud) but I can now get some good break up. This amp is very durable and sounds amazing. I believe its the best amp you can get for the price.

Just bought this today. I originally went in for a Marshall but they were out and then I stumbled upon this. Fantastic sound with stock tubes, a little heavy but solid. Warm clean tones and a crunchy distortion. Also the fact you can hook up a cab to it is a great feature! Pedals are a good idea if you want a metal sound or heavy rock but he amp does the job just fine. Very loud. Just overall a fantastic amp and a great value. It is a 15W but its perfect for gigging, looks great too!

I have had this for about 6 months and love it. There is a lot of versatility with tone, the tremolo is thick and rich, and the reverb is killer. It basically does what it is supposed to. I have used this many times for small gigs and is way loud enough even without a PA. My only issue is that it is very heavy for a 15 watt amp. I have an old ampeg with about 15 watts as well and it is about the quarter of the weight of this Vox. However, the sound quality, flexability and tonal quality far outweigh this issue. I have changed out the stock tubes for some better ones and it did improve the overall responsivness and tone. Also intend to change out the speaker but at this price it is a great amp. I am a blues player it covers all my needs with no trouble.

Great amp for the price. It does exactly what it is supposed to do. Has that Classic Vox sound. This is not as good as the hand wired versions but for alf the price the difference in tone is too small to warrant the difference in price

I bought this amp about a year and a half ago and use it on stage in combination with a 15W gibson gold tone amp. The Vox is a perfect compliment to the Gibson. I only use the clean channel and rely on my pedals for everything else. The clean channel gives a very warm classic sound. I tried a number of other 15W amps before I bought this and this had the warmest sound of them all.

This amp is great, has killer tone and is very versatile for use in most situations. One thing I don't like about this, is having to pay for the not-included foot switch for the tremolo and reverb. Otherwise, this amp is more than poweful enough for my gigging needs
