Features Vintage 1963 Blue Vinyl Cabinet and classic Tygon Fretcloth
An amp that has firmly held its position in the spotlight since The Beatles used them in the 1960s, the Vox AC15C1 is an all valve guitar amp that has been widely used by generations of musicians since for its sound quality and versatility.
Technology has of course improved since the 50s and 60s, and while the new incarnation of the AC15C1 retains the tried and tested design features, it also has a few improvements that guitarists will find very helpful.
Two channel setup
Like its bigger brothers in the Vox Custom Series amplifier range, the AC15C1 offers the familiar two channel setup - Normal and Top-Boost. Each channel is equipped with its own volume control, and the Top Boost channel offers an interactive Treble and Bass tone control and the channel pairing provides an abundance of tone-crafting control.
Both channels are influenced by the Tone Cut and Volume controls in the Master section, the Tone Cut control operates in the power stage rather than the pre-amp stage, allowing an additional degree of tone-shaping. Additionally, 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 AC15C1 can deliver everything from a clean chimney sound to a powerful overdriven tone.
You can sweeten the sound of your Custom Series AC15C1 guitar amp using the Vox Classic Tremolo effect, the speed and depth of the tremolo are adjustable, allowing you to generate just the sound you want. A 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.
Greenback Celestion Speaker
The Vox AC15C1 combo makes use of 3 x 12AX7 pre-amp valves and a pair of EL84 valves to drive the single 12" Celestion G12M Greenback speaker. All models in the Custom Series offer a switchable 8/16 ohm output jack for powering an external speaker cabinet when you need to add additional speaker capability 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.
