Classic Looks & Sound
KMickP, 18.04.2020
After much research I chose the AC15, the other main contender was the Fender Blues Junior but the Vox won on looks, sound and features. I also considered the AC30 but in real world use it was too loud and had too much headroom in that as I don’t play stadiums, I rarely would be able to get the amp cranked to the sweet spot & would risk a mutiny with the other players. The AC15 is loud enough in a band situation and you can get the power tubes cooking enough to get the true Vox sound.
The first impression as I took it out the box was the look of quality, the amp, it looks fantastic & well put together. In terms of sound, it just oozes classic tone which is effortless to achieve. It has an effects loop but to be honest it takes pedals great just going direct into the front end of the amp. In terms of genres I play mostly rock so with or without pedals it works great and Jazz & funk tones are easy to dial in. Nothing not to like so far.
In summary, it’s a fantastic buy, I’ve owned pretty much every major brand of amp and this is up there with the best and certainly at this price point, probably is the best!

Thanks to the guys at Thomann, flawless service as usual!

Love it!!!
John F. K., 26.11.2019
I have the amp for a while now and i love it. I play it with a player series Telecaster and it just sings on both clean and dirty tones. I haven't had
the chance to listen to it before i bought it and i took a risk. It's way better sounding than any review on youtube. I thought Fenders were the cleans champion in my ears but the Vox is right next to them. That chime is awsome!

So,t to answer some usual questions: Tried it with a loud drummer and had no problem at all. I play mostly RnR with overdrive or distortion. For clean sounds you might need to mic it in a big gig situation. For home use is great as soon as you don't want to play too quietly. You can play it at low volumes and it will sound ok , but it shines more when it's loud(....and trust me this thing is loud). Master volume helps a lot in. I play it home at low volumes and i'm happy with how it sounds. I'm realistic, no loud valve amp will be great at low volumes.
I don't use many pedals but it took anything i threw at it great. No problems there.

So , is there anything i don't like? The amp is on the heavier side. I work out and i'm in good shape but still is not easy to move. More handles like the ac30 would help to carry it with a friend. I really don't think i should deduct any stars from my rating for it.

Thomann packaging and service was great. I really hope their aftersales policy is as great as i've read in many forums i follow.

Overall i recommend it. As i've already said...i love it!!

Classic British tube tone in a durable, solid and attractive package.
04.01.2017
When the time came for a decent amplifier upgrade, the main options I was looking for were mainly Fender and Vox. With a budget of roughly 1000E to spend, the main amps in my mind were the Fender Blues Junior, Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, and the Vox AC15c1 and AC30c2 models. Playing in a 60s rock'n'roll. rhythm and blues band. I always loved the tones coming out of the Vox AC30s and AC15s of The Beatles, Rory Gallagher and Brian May - and while the chiming rhythm sounds and soaring, overdriven solos of some of their iconic songs always resonated with me, the appearance of their Vox amplifiers (with their iconic tolex grilles), always appealed to me, too. It was for these main reasons that I gravitated towards the Vox amplifiers over the Fender ones.

Why did I go for the AC15 over the AC30 though? The Vox AC15 does the chime and jangle that are perfect for the 'Hard Days Night" early Beatles tones and jangle of Tom Petty, as does it the crunchy, overdriven tones synonymous with Brian May, Rory Gallagher and Oasis. It's smaller frame is also more suitable for my home environment, though it retains much of the tonal qualities of it's larger brother (but it houses a single Greenback speaker instead of two and a lower output of 15 watts). The amp is built to be durable and mine has seen no signs of damage or detrimental wear (or tonal / speaker degradation) in it's extensive use since it's purchase in May. Furthermore, the smaller body won't break your back in comparison with the lumbering AC30!

Overall, the amp is pure Vox tone - sounds terrific with my Rickenbacker and Fender guitars, and does both chiming, jangling rhythms and scorching, gritty leads perfectly. If I had to find a fault in it, it would be that in comparison to the AC30, the AC15 has slightly less 'headroom', with not much in the way of mid-range tonal control. This may be nit-picking though, as I genuinely believe the AC15 does both clean and overdriven tones justice, and handles a multitude of pedals very well. The amp also excels in studio and the tones recorded from it are crisp and colourful. Lastly, for around the 500E mark, you're absolutely getting bang for the buck and won't break the bank! I'm delighted with mine.

I'm sorry
Red headed step child, 02.11.2019
I'm sorry I waited so long to get to know you, AC15. I will get the one negative out of the way first: It's very heavy. Despite that, the AC15 is a timeless classic. Funny how from this dinosaur you get tremendous dynamics! Even with my Strat's volume at 10, simply strumming softly or picking produces edge-of-breakup until you strum hard and get great overdrive sound without colouring my Strat's voice at all. And the spring reverb -- although not Fender's -- can still give you just the right surfy sound, if like me, that is what you're looking for. Lastly, the tremolo -- for me at least -- is just right not too intruding. Before I forget, the AC15 doesn't need an FX loop, because all pedals translate beautifully up front; nothing is missing coming out of the speaker. I really am sorry for not having gotten this British classic earlier.
