Vox AC15C1 15-watt 1x12" Tube Combo Amp
In Stock!

A True Workhorse Guitar Amplifier

This Vox AC15 Custom delivers the classic chime and complex grind that has made the brand famous. This 15-watt combo amp was one of the first to define the British sound and continues to be used on stages and in studios around the world. The AC15 Custom's 15-watt design offers manageable volume in the live environment while still being able to get above the band. And the 25-watt Celestion Greenback speaker mellows high frequencies. If you want a Vox with a look that's both vintage and rare, grab this AC15 Custom.

One of the proudest lineages in guitar amplification

Vox amplification has been a staple for guitarists since their introduction. The British Invasion rocketed the company to prominence in the 1960s, and their amplifiers have backed such high-profile players as The Edge, Brian May, Tom Petty, and John Scofield. The AC15 is among the most recorded amplifiers in history because of the chime and sparkle it delivers. The Vox AC15 Custom will never go out of style because of all of the players still depending on this design today.

Power and preamps

The combination of the Vox AC15 Custom's Class A, EL84-driven power amp and its Top Boost preamp gives the amp its iconic sound. The Top Boost section adds sonic control and high-end detail to your guitar sound. The 15-watt power section sounds full and driven onstage or in the studio, cutting through the mix without dominating the other instruments. And Vox's AC circuit is famous for how well it takes any variety of your favorite effects pedals.

Loaded with a Greenback

The Vox AC15 Custom's substitution of a 12" Celestion 25-watt Greenback speaker parts from the traditional AC design. Sweetwater guitarists think this enhances the tone of the AC15 Custom. The Greenback's mellower, midrange-focused sound helps round off some super-high frequencies. And the quality of these Greenbacks are why you'll find them in guitarists' cabinets all over the world.

Vox AC15 Custom Electric Guitar Amplifier Features:
  • Legendary 15-watt British combo guitar amplifier
  • Celestion 25-watt Greenback speaker mellows harsh frequencies
  • Normal and Top Boost channels
  • Built-in tremolo and spring reverb
  • EL84 power delivers the chime
Make sure you have an AC15 Custom in your arsenal.

Pretty good amp

It might be the perfect amp for the bang of the buck. Sounds good and is really loud if you want it to be. I have no complaints. I asked for extra protective package protection for shipping and they packed it really well, I am impressed. Thank you Sweetwater and my sales engineer Frank Gertz and the shipping and packaging department.

My absolutely favorite amp!

I have played guitar on many amps through the years and this one rates about the best! Tone is easy to dial in. Speaker breaks perfectly. Plenty loud for gig or recording. I'm fine with the Greenback Celestion. Only recommendation would be to change tubes (valves) as soon as you open the box. I put groove tubes EL84 in the power section and Mesa boogie 12ax7's in the audio......sounds fantastic. An added plus .....the amp is self biasing!

Awesome Amp!!

The AC15 is as good as advertised. Beautiful clean tones and the best overdrive going. I'm not using any of my overdrive pedals since getting this amp. This amp is great for recording as well as gigging. No worries being heard with this amp! One of the loudest 15 watt amps out there. Tremelo and reverb are awesome as well. Get a Vox, it's the only way to rock!!

Fantastic tone

I have an AC4HW that I absolutely love but I really wanted something with a bit more punch. The AC15 rocks everything from chimey clean to crunchy blues to screaming leads. I love it. Oh yeah... it is loud. My ears were ringing for several hours after my first 30 minutes playing. It's so clean that the volume sneaks up on you. The reverb and tremolo are both very good. It takes pedals well and with a little tweaking of the EQ it generates passable Fender tones.The stock speaker is well matched to the amp if you like the classic Vox tone. The only negative is the lack of an effects loop. Delay would sound better in a loop but that adds weight and cost. Its a keeper.
Music background: I just play for fun.


So i know these amps are known for amazing cleans, which they do have, but this amp is also packs some killer tones when using a distortion pedal. I bought this amp because Tom Delonge from Blink 182 currently uses Vox amps, and i can see why. All around great versatile amp. And it can get loud. The highest i ever dial the volume is 10 oclock, during band practice, and that feels like I'm bringing the whole garage down. Just a plain awsome amp
