Beautiful Amp

22.02.2017
One of the nicest amps I've ever played, and I've played a lot of amps.

Unfortunately the first one died within 30 minutes of switching it on but Thomann's service was really excellent. This was just before christmas and they managed to get it picked up and a new one delivered in time for christmas day. I don't know how!

Anyway, the 2nd one had faulty valves, which is a manufacturer's issue not Thomann's, so rather than have to send the amp back to germany, I called Vox UK but they were not interested in helping at all. In fact Vox UK's service was the poorest I think I've experienced in years. Just awful...

So I did have to call Thomann again, and again they were just brilliant, they sent me 2 new valves straight out, since when the amp has been everything it should be.

This is not just another AC15. The hand wiring inside is a thing of beauty from a bygone era. I don't know if it affects the sound at all but the valve rectifier certainly does, giving a creamier breakup than the solid-state rectifiers of the CC and other cheaper AC models.

The alnico blue bulldog inside is a lovely speaker. People argue about whether to fit the greenback or the blue. Personally I don't think there is a question with this amp. Blue is best.

The sound is simply awesome. Playing without the master volume will coax the best out of this amp. The normal channel has tons of the most gorgeous clean tone - which is a warmer sound than the fender clean tone (fenders have a more prominent midrange clean in my opinion). Seems everyone describes the sound as 'chimey' but I don't really know what that means. This thing doesn't sound at all like a bell, it sounds slightly mid-scooped which I think is simply that this amp voices the bass and treble more strongly, rather than that the midrange is actually cut. For any clean style the tone is approaching perfection, I don't play jazz but this amp certainly could.

The tone controls are very basic indeed, with a simple treble and bass passive on the top boost channel. There is a global tone cut that reduces the treble on both channels but I play it with the tone cut circuit almost wholly off. I play with a strat and a Kingpin 5th Avenue, and neither of them sound too bright.

At high volumes the normal channel breaks up with a mammoth crunch. Did I say that this amp is really loud? It is REALLY LOUD!!! But you can switch it to 7.5 watt mode. which you'd think is quiet but which is also REALLY LOUD!!! and breaks up faster than 15W mode.

The top boost channel has loads of character and presence, and gain. The Hot mode on this channel is extremely hot. I don't actually use the Hot switch as I have a mesa boogie roadster for that sort of thing and I'm interested in this amp for more for blues and clean sounds, and recording.

This amp has studio volume written all over it. It can be as quiet as you like but you're unlikely to need anything louder for recording. In fact my roadster is too loud for the studio, which is why I bought this. My only gripe is that this amp has a fairly loud circuit buzz at high volume, which could be annoying when recording. The buzz isn't a problem at my normal recording level though.

All in all, this is a truly wonderful amp. It is also a piece of history and exudes quality and class in every way.

Ratings:
The AC15HWX is a heavy amp, which is why I've given 4 stars for handling. Seems to be my fate to always have heavy amps...
Features 5 stars because I prefer basic features done brilliantly (which is what this amp does) than complex features that I won't use much.

Do you know the feeling "Dat is'et!"
What should I write, you would like to tear off the logo and put your own name on it, so unadulterated the crate the activities on the fingerboard - No matter how bad or how good you are on it! I think I need to overhawe no ground distorter more ... you can fix everything with minimum turn on the guitar buttons (if any) with your attack intensity and dynamics, even slight wah-wah and flanging you can get out of your fingers (if I do not Interrogated Perhaps he is still a bit pointed in the upper mids to heights, which is, as is known, after some (Einspiel-) time of itself !?
So with ner LP P-90, Sonorus cable and Blue-Bulldog, he is for me personally, the part for life.
