No-one's little brother

The Vox AC15, often called the little brother of the iconic Vox AC30 due to its lower watt output and 1x12" speaker configuration, doesn't live up to this name, as the original model first saw the light of day in 1958. This new edition, the Vox AC15 C1, also retains the essence of the classic. 15 watts of all-tube power are combined with a 12" Celestion Greenback speaker - and together they create a sound typical for Vox. By the way, the volume reserves should not be underestimated, not even with the 15-watt version, because it is perfectly adequate for most purposes. In terms of sound, the range goes from headroom-rich clean sounds coming from the Normal channel to the dynamic overdrive sounds from the Top Boost channel. Spring reverb and tremolo are also available for three-dimensional sound effects. This bundle comes with a lightweight cover made in Germany.

Plug and play

From a technical point of view, the AC15 C1 has two channels: The Normal channel and the Top Boost channel. When connecting the guitar, however, you have to choose one of the two channels and its input jack. The Normal channel is rather simple and features only a volume control, which determines both the volume and the distortion level - you can't get more plug-and-play than that! In terms of sound, the Normal channel offers plenty of clean headroom. Only when it's fully cranked up does it deliver a bit of crunch. The Top Boost channel, on the other hand, produces a very dynamic vintage distortion via its volume control, which can also be adjusted with the volume potentiometer on the guitar. In addition, the channel offers an EQ section made up of treble and bass. Finally, the Tone Cut control of the power amp can be used to dampen the treble of both channels a little. The spring reverb and tremolo effects are both continuously adjustable and can also be activated via an external foot switch.

The amp for all Rock & Roll purists

With its tight bass, warm, punchy midrange, and radiant highs, the AC15 C1 is ideal for anyone who likes a pure and honest vintage Rock sound, but doesn't necessarily need the high output of the AC30. The 15-watt version is not only lighter, but can also be driven into power amp saturation more quickly at relatively moderate volume levels. Nevertheless, it still has enough power on tap for every gig. And if, despite all the odds, the internal speaker isn't quite up to the task, there are two additional speaker outputs on the rear panel. The Vox AC15 C1 is an amp for professionals who know exactly what they want, but it's also interesting for ambitious beginners considering the relatively low price for an all-tube amp of this quality. For musicians who often have to transport their amplifier, this bundle with the water-resistant cover is a good solution.

About VOX Amplification

VOX Amplification is a world-renowned manufacturer of music equipment. The company was founded in 1957 in the British town of Dartford by Thomas Walter Jennings. Probably the most famous product of this long-standing name is the VOX AC30 guitar amplifier, an enhancement of the earlier and smaller AC15. The AC30 can be heard on countless classic albums that made Rock history. The Beatles, for example, had an exclusive contract with VOX and used their amplifiers throughout their career. Countless offshoots of the AC30 followed over the years, and other amp models, effects units, organs, and even electric guitars and drums were added. Today, VOX's product range includes almost everything you need to make music, and the company also offers a lot of useful digital tools for the original VOX sound, including a range of virtual amps, multi-effects, and software.

From the rehearsal room to the studio, all the way to the stage

The Vox AC15 C1 has the classic Rock sounds associated with Queen guitarist Brian May, for example. Especially boost pedals, which May also uses frequently, harmonise perfectly with the amp to tease out vocal leads in addition to the warm clean sounds and the dirty crunch. In general, the amp is a popular pedal platform and can be seen on stage with numerous British Indie bands and also in various recording studios. With its size, the AC15 C1 still fits into every rehearsal room as well as on every club stage. With its astonishing all-tube power, however, it can also be used for much larger gigs. By the way, if you want more sonic diversity when performing with your AC15, you can also use an AB switch to route the guitar signal alternately to one of the two amp inputs and thus use the channels according to your current needs. The cover protects the amplifier from scratches, dust, and light rain during transport and storage.
