    It is therefore a tube amp with two separate entrances circuits (Normal and Top Boost) and a tremolo and reverb built. At the rear, there are two entries:

    - Connecting the footswitch (not included!) To turn reverb and tremolo
    - Output for external speaker
    Nothing very revolutionary at the same time that's why we take it! The receiver is stamped 15W 15W lamps but Vox! The sound is expelled through a speaker 12 "Celestion G12M Greenback (as opposed to the AC15 C1x that has a Celestion Blue Bulldog ... his best it seems ...)
    The settings, from left to right level are: a master volume, and tone cut to mitigate treble frequencies and give a thicker sound. Then the part tremolo with two knobs: depth (depth) and speed (speed), then a single knob "level" for the reverb. Settings circuit, meanwhile, are few: bass, treble and volume for the top boost channel, and only one volume for the normal channel. Finally, the two inputs to the various channels.
    Note that volumes are output level and gain, which provides a natural saturation from light boost, the free overdrive. Just play between the channel volume and master volume!
    "What are we going to do with that?" I think you mean ... Well look below!

    UTILIZATION

    Because of its small number of settings, the Vox AC15 is a very easy to use amp. On the normal channel, one branch, the volume is adjusted (if the reverb and, why not, the tremolo) and it's already time to play! If the top boost channel is selected, no fencing is very long on the bass and treble: moreover, they are relatively inconspicuous compared to Fender Hot Rod (I speak from what I know).
    The manual has not been delivered to me I can not say if it is clear but I do know, however, it is not necessary.
    Very easy to sound good is obtained, if the EC is what search! Many of my influences that one day or another played on this series (the AC30 C2), I knew in advance that it would please me!


    SOUNDS

    Then there is the splayfooted (hence the title)! I did not need more to finally get the sound I had in my ears since forever!
    I use the amp with a standard guitar SG with P90 (microphones simple rods to double).
    I was looking for an amp that excelled in rock, blues, pop and old. The AC series has largely contributed to the sounds I was looking for a long time.
    The effectiveness of settings allows you to have thick and clear melodic tones (arpeggios Peter Buck REM), or typically byrdsiens sounds (the "jangle") with single coil pickups. The ability to adjust subtly gain level by the volume gives a terrible sound that just treble frequencies saturate ... great!
    The crunch Vox is superb! The normal channel is perfect for arpeggios hell or to give a good shot of the pump suites agreements.
    As for the top boost channel, it saturates rapidly enough, and provides a larger dose of gain. Unfortunately, it gets a little too rough from 8/10 but when you need more gain, both take a pedal.
    The reverb is quality but should not push it too because it loses beauty. If you do not exceed 8, then this is great.
    The tremolo is also excellent. I wish it could be faster, but it's still awesome and down when the depth, subtle and beautiful effect is obtained.
    Finally, the Tone Cut allows you to filter the treble frequencies and therefore thicken the sound without losing definition as the tone on the guitar. It completely changes the type of sound, it is still necessary and can not be otherwise at least get a sound a little too loud.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for over a year and I have not been disappointed (except in the extreme). I have owned several amps transistors and lamps (Orange Crush 15, Fender Frontman 15, Fender Hot Rod Deluxe). I got the AC15 in exchange for the Hot Rod, too busy acute and not enough body even with 40W. Now I've found my home and I do not think the leaving anytime soon!
    What I like about this amp is THE sound that has always been my idols and I finally found! More little adjustment to rediscover the sound of his guitar, and the possibilities of its knobs!
    What I like least? Well, perhaps unable to change channels with a switch, you must use a pedal for that A / B and connect the two channels to power the switcher quickly. This is a problem of scene ...
    The price is quite low for the power output and sound quality. Purchased used, this is a bargain!
    With experience, I would do this choice without hesitation! My project from now: give me Big Brother Handwired Vox AC30C2 hand made in the UK!

The seller tried R08 with LP and the result was the same: a sound as possible and to draft a membrane HP seemed uncontrolled.
    But the seller does nothing seemed surprised and felt that everything was normal. I am willing to believe and conclude that I am incompatible with the AC15.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have of course not finalized the purchase and walked away quietly without combo.
    This Vox me a bit like the Celestion V30: two products that have an amazing popularity when I personally find the most mediocre.

    So do not get upset about the "useless review" button: I quite right not love this combo and say it!

    tube combo 15 watt than enough to play by repeating or in small rooms or have trouble with your neighbors.
    THE configuration is simple, normal and top boost more punchy.
    No overdrive channel, but rather effective reverb and tremolo (never used).
    Possibility of coupling with an external speaker (I bought a vox V212NT by replacing one of the hp original Celestion 70th anniversary with a Celestion greenback hp, which is also installed in my AC15).
    You can either use an external output for the sound only in the external speaker or the output expansion, and there, the sound is divided between your amp and your cab.

    UTILIZATION

    I utulise the register in a blues rock, and I must say that this is his domain.
    Either with us or my strat my Les Paul, I easily get what I want. I use pedals mxr double shot, zw overdrive and classic fuzz to get different sounds.

    SOUNDS

    I love the pretty rock sounds, crunch delivered by my hp greenback.
    To get them, I reduce the overall volume of the amp and I increase the volume of the Top boost fashion ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    c is the best amp I've had.
    Previously, I used a marshall haze 40, too powerful, crappy finishes ..
    I am completely satisfied with my AC15 even if I am always attracted by its big brother the AC30.
    I would do this choice because in this price range, this is the amp for me.

    Made in china (for current models), very good build quality. Finish that is not too crazy, except maybe the handle.

    Heavy (the weight of my 7 year old daughter, ie 22 kg) but for me it is not a bad thing because the size and thickness of the wood that it does not vibrate when you start mounting the volume. The back is almost closed, giving a better overall sound reproduction (particularly on low).

    For me it lacks something essential: a switch shine.
    To understand what it is, see the topic "bright cap" (very simple modification of the circuit I made) -2 points, but returned with the mod.

    The two non-switchable channels are a bit old-school, but also the charm (-1 point)
    The look can like it or not, I love it. It is unmistakable, and it is super nice.

    UTILIZATION

    A good sound out of this amp is a breeze.

    Each knob is very "active" and alter the sound significantly, so many possible shades, even if it remains in its VOX.

    I read the manual just to have the heating time of the lamps. To save you the reading is 2-3 minutes.

    Well I put -1 for transportation because it is better a large chest.

    SOUNDS

    O my God.

    Tried to shop with just a strat on the normal channel, to cry a specific bright rich sound,. A sound that says "typical British" but frankly the clean has nothing to envy to a Fender. Just a darker, but I was amazed hair, I fell in love and I'm left with.

    At home: ouch. The overdrive pedals (Vox Big Ben yet) and distortion does not really go into the amp. Fortunately, there are changes bright cap (see the topic in the forum audiofanzine).

    So I put 10 with the bright cap mod.

    Once this mod done on the top boost channel and an on / off switch on the normal channel, it's deadly. It's just too hard to go to work and having to wait until the evening to replay it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used for a few days with a Fender American Special Strat HSS and some pedals, it is pure happiness.

    This is a "real" amp with a great sound. I also have a Fender Super X2 field that sounds great, but that can not be pushed (thus limited rehearsal and concert) and is more neutral in sound.

    What I like least is having to make a mod for circuit with THE sound. It is very simple and I think for the price it cost to add a switch to shine, they could have done.

    I love everything: sound, look ...

    I would do 100 times this choice at this price there's no better in my opinion (but try the Fender Blues Junior)

    Here is a small tube combo 15 watt quite extra, with an entry called (normal) and a second said (top boost) with a real spring reverb, to convince you just move the machine is turned on

    many opinions are not very positive about this reverb, personally I find good and my taste.

    the normal input is just great sound right in the vox miles, the difference with a 30 ac, power, but it is the quality of sounds and effects is equal to its big brothers.

    15 watt but I already had a visit neighbors tell you is .....

    UTILIZATION

    Nothing simpler than this amp, plug and you get a more distinctive sound, as I bought it I did not even try in the store, have entendut to different occasion I had not been convinced some time.

    at the time of purchase I had only a few guitar models in low-end strat and gibson les paul, but already he was bringing more truly satisfying in my sound, since I invested in the guitar one can more reliable, the dream is complete.

    perspective explanation, a little book comes with the amp, but still very intuitive, no need to break your head "it's gear."

    SOUNDS

    I have chosen knowingly, my main game is based on the typical "60" "70" of cristalins cleen, and with good bass fishing, palmute
    great sound on this amp, a real drug because it ended up not being able to get past.

    I use a fender strat "classic player 60" and a gretsch electromatic "g5422 tdgc" is the foot, my line effect is mainly
    a boost t-rex, a delay of vox, a slow motion, chorus and flanger, and from time to time depending on the mood, a distortion of the Satchurator vox.

    OVERALL OPINION

    3 years since I used this amp and 15 years since I commancer the guitar, as saying that I tested a few amps before buying this, many of my previous one was the transistor amps, although I have nothing against those this, they are also their qualities, what I wanted to force improved my ear aspiring musician,
    this was more warmth and depth that is found naturally in the amp or combo lamp, coupled with a quality instrument, it makes you aware of the beauty of live music in front of his instrument.

    the fender amp is also very good user score, I think they may be the only one able to compete with the vox in search of what his perfect cleen.
    value for money, go for this kind of material because only up and I do not think we can the regreter.
    Of course I'd do it again this choice, it is a true marvel and once it has found the little extras that make a difference in their personal games, this is a treat.

    The Vox AC15C1 is an excellent low wattage combo amp with supple features and a welcome compact size. Powered by el84s, this AC15 is a twin channel design that is separated by the input. The normal channel has a single volume control, whilst the top boost channel has a dedicated EQ stack. The Tone cut control acts as a pseudo presence control, allowing you to roll off high frequencies. The addition of a master volume on this amps gives you the ability to wind up the preamp for hotter gain sounds. Onboard Reverb and Tremolo gives you more options to enhance and sculpt your sound.

The addition of a master volume on this amps gives you the ability to wind up the preamp for hotter gain sounds. Onboard Reverb and Tremolo gives you more options to enhance and sculpt your sound.

    UTILIZATION

    The master volume is a very important update to the AC15, giving you the ability to get more aggressive sounds without the ear-bleeding volumes typically involved. The amp is very easy to dial in and the built in reverb really helps accentuate the lush cleans available. The amp is very loud for its power rating and is easily a giggable amp. It is also an excellent platform for pedals, but does not take well to everything.

    SOUNDS

    I played through the AC15 with a Gibson Tweedy SG. JHS morning glory. Weehbo JCM drive. Strymon Timeline.

    The normal channel is capable of very pleasant clean sounds and with the help of a "cleaner" overdrive, such as the JHS Morning Glory, can deliver some righteous sparkle and breakup. The Top boost channel is immediately more percussive and aggressive. Winding up the volume really gets the amp into a useable classic crunch sound. I paired the Weehbo JCM drive to the amp with great success. The amp was capable of copping very modern gain sounds with a great level of authenticity.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The Vox AC15C1 is the best performing amp in it's price point. It's an excellent pedal platform and outperforms it's closest competitor, the Egnater Tweaker, in sound quality. If you need a giggable amp that's small on size and big on sound, this amp is where it's at. Mic'ing up the amp in a live setting can get this amp more than enough mileage.
