Vox continues its collaboration with amp designer Tony Bruno with the TB18C1 guitar amplifier.

Vox says that despite its British Vox pedigree, the TB18C1 has an American feel. The amp chassis features a pair of 6V6 power tubes. The preamp stage is driven by two 12AX7 preamp tubes. The single-channel preamp offers both High and Low level inputs, as well as Volume, Bass, Middle and Treble controls.

 

External speaker jacks and extension cabinet jacks are standard equipment. The TB18C1 features a 12-inch Celestion G12-65 loudspeaker mounted into a plywood cabinet.

 

Mid Boost Switch:

The Mid Boost switch is a mid/gain boost. This specially-voiced mod is ideal for players wanting to boost their solos or leads.

 

Dark Switch:

This circuit further tweaks the TB18C1 amp's tonal diversity. When the Dark switch is engaged, the high frequencies are cut, changing the amp's feel.
