The Basic is GoodThis amp has a really sweet, smooth sound and I could not believe what volume a 15 watt tube amp could achieve. Wow!

Like A Boss!!!I've been spending time at my local music store looking for a mid size tube amp. After spending a fair amount of time playing various brands and models, I thought I had it narrowed down to the Vox AC15C1. I am glad I took my time in my search because the AC15C2 "Twin" became available. Honestly, I hadn't had a chance to play this model but I ordered it because of the impression the single 12" laid on me. That was a great idea because this thing Handles Business Like Boss!
Packs great warmth. Cranks up loud and bring it back down smooth. I plan on adding two pedals (A/B, Rev/Trem). But in no hurry. Every setting sounds good enough to play on and on.

Tone HeavenI was looking for a meduim wattage amp for smaller to meduim gigs when i came accross this. The Peavey Delta Blues was my first choice but the music store that i usually shop at didnt have any in stock so i tried this out. Wow was i impressed right off the bat. Many people are turned off by the 15 watts but trust me when i say that 15 watts is plenty through these the two celestian's. This amp can pretty much capture any tone you want it to and just loves to be cranked. Great for Zeppelin and blues! It can also get some more modern rock tones at high volumes. I use the top boost channel for clean and the normal channel for those dirty tones. The amp starts to break up around 10/11 o clock giving you some head room for the cleans but you just cant beat that overdriven tube sound. The reverb and tremelo are fantastic! You can get a great delta-blues sort of sound if you tweak the reverb and tremelo the right way. The construction is very solid and definetley seems to hold up nicely during transport. The only things that i dont like about this amp are that its extremely heavey for 15 watts. So if you have back issues and dont feel like carrying this amp around then maybe its not for you. The other thing is that you can switch from dirty to clean, vise vera. But it cleans up very nicely so you can just use your guitar volume. Overall this is a great amp for anyone looking for a vintage sound without breaking the bank. Highly Recomended

This thing is a TONE BEASTGot a demo version for a great price. Looked and even smelled BRAND NEW. Great tone, great sound. With the volume dimed this puppy is loud. with the 2 Celestion 12s this is the fullest loudest 15w amp ive heard. if an ac30 is too loud, dont hesitate on this baby. for bedroom levels i would go with the ac4 cuz this is made for the stage!

Versatile yet UniqueLove the combo of reasonable wattage and 2 speakers. Full, multidimensional sound at usable volume.
This amp allows me to dial in just enough gain for the sound I want and the instrument I'm playing at the time. The controls work in fine increments which gives more control. Great sound, classic distortion... not a gain monster which is fine for most of the music I play. If I want more gain I can use a pedal, but I never do. Cleans are good, not Fender good but good. Where this amp really shines is in touch sensitivity and bloom at low/medium gain. Not bad for "Twang" either. And I think I owe it to myself to try this thing with a 12 string Rickenbacker.
I'll be adding an A/B footswitch so I can switch between channels without unplugging... kind of surprised that function isn't built in. That's my only gripe. Build quality is great so far. Wattage is perfect, the amp has enough clean headroom and volume to more than keep up with the band. It can be driven into overdrive without breaking windows.

Vox AC15C2Sound Quality solid. However reverb weak. It is a sold state reverb in a great tube amp. Needs a little more of something.

AC15C2It's a very good amp, The construction is a much better quality than my AC15C1. MUCH better. The sound is better than I was hoping for. And, I love the tone cut and the top boost etc.
I'm impressed by the over all quality--compares to much more expensive units.
If you like that true 'VOX' sound, and you'd like to get it without breaking the bank, I think this amp will fill the bill.
