I love this amp.
The Vox AC15C1 has the exact tone I've always wanted. I play a lot of post-punk, angular stuff that needs to sit in the high range with another guitar and bass taking up the mid and low range (think Gang of Four, Wire, Fugazi, etc). This amp cuts through it all and sounds beautiful doing it. I use a MIM Fender Telecaster through it, with no distortion pedal, and MAN it's got some teeth when you push the Top Boost channel. It's very responsive to your playing dynamics, and lets the pure essence of your guitar shine through. It has a sweet spot that can be reached at lower volumes; I would highly suggest this amp for touring musicians. Keep it at that sweet spot and let the sound guy do the rest. For years I toured with a Fender Deville 2x12, but it was way heavier and the tone never got as bright and crunchy as I wanted without having to use some pedals. I wish I could go back in time and buy this amp sooner. With the 24 month pricing, this is a no-brainer for anyone who wants that classic Vox crunch at a manageable size and cost.
