You Have To Read This Before You Buy The Vox Ac15c1 Guitar Combo Amplifier
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The sound of the mid sixties Vox is back with their Vox AC15C1 Guitar Combo Amplifier. It has been the choice of guitarists worldwide since 1958 meaning that Vox has over half a century of amp making experience.

The tone of this amp is provided by 2 channels, one being a normal channel and the being a top boost. The two channels have their own separate volume controls with the top boost channel having controls for adjusting the treble and bass frequencies so you can find just the right individual tone for your music.

The two channels are reliant on tone and volume controls in the master part of the amp. The main volume control works with volume control of the individual channel which allows for proper gain staging. The tone cut control on the master section doesn't work in the pre amp stage but in the power stage so you can achieve added tone shaping control. Whether you want overdrive or clean, the Vox AC15 can provide it by just tweaking the individual volume and the master volume to your taste.

Using the tremolo effect built into the unit, which allows you to control the depth and speed, you can add even more sweetness to your overall tone. There is also a reverb to add that little bit of space when you need it. If you are playing live, you can use VOX VFS2 foot switch (not included but is only around $30 US) which will allow you to turn both of these effects off and on when you require.

As valve amps add their own character to the sound, once you allow them to warm up, you will hear the roar which comes out of this little unit and you won't believe it is only 15 Watts. The AC15 C1 Custom combo uses three tubes as pre amps and two tubes to drive a 12 inch Greenback. There is an output for connecting an external cab if you want a little more level and also another speaker jack to a 16 ohm cab if you want a fuller sound.

The amp is very well built, feeling solid and rugged, and using metal for the switches is definitely better than plastic.

The Vox AC 15 C1 guitar combo amplifier is easy to use, great looking, sounds great and as for the price, you would be hard pressed to find a better amp tonally and even if you have to change tubes after a while, it will still be a great deal.
