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.

Great piece of equipment.

I was always a fender amps guy so I wanted a blues junior because my housemate has one and I thought that it was amazing. To be honest the only reason I bought the ac15 was to compare the two models and then decide.

As soon as I turned my ac15 on, that was it, I fell in love with it immediately! It has such a nice chimey and bright tone but at the same time it's not harsh at all and it's warm as well! It's so easy to get a nice tone out of it, and I have played with my strat and with my duesenberg (humbacker + p90) and both of them sound fantastic with it.
It also works great with my pedals (OCD, Mulholland Drive, Timeline, EP Booster, Mobius) and even though it hasn't got a pedal loop in and out it still sounds great.

I haven't used much the tremolo but it's really nice and great for country stuff etc. The reverb is always on, even though I'm not a reverb guy, but having it set at 3-4/10 it adds a really nice and gentle ambience to my whole sound.

I don't have to crank it up to get a good tone, the master volume allows me to have a nice tone in low volume, but when I cranked it up once, it was like a dream!

Only one thing I have to warn you about is that when it came i noticed a rattling sound, but as soon as I contacted Thomann customer service, they immediately responded to me, sending me free postage stamps to send it back to Germany (I'm based in UK) and they sent me back a new one, which works perfect.
