In Stock!

Premium Vox Tube Tone with Alnico Blue Speakers!

Your ticket to pure British tube tone! If you love the classic chime and complex grind of those famous British Invasion amp tones, then you'll be in tube amp heaven when you plug into Vox's AC15 Custom. You'll be amazed at the big, responsive tones you get from this outstanding 1 x 12" combo, and you'll definitely keep coming back for more of that sweet Vox sound. Vox equipped the AC15 Custom with a normal channel, a top boost channel, master volume, tremolo, and reverb. The result? You'll be absolutely blown away! You can also add an extension speaker for even bigger tones!

Plug into the AC15's normal channel and use the volume, master volume, and tone cut controls to shape your tone. Or, take advantage of Vox's venerable top boost channel, which adds adjustable bass and treble controls. You can literally take the AC15 Custom from brilliant, sparkling clean to the kind of powerful, compressed overdrive you just won't find anywhere else!

What's behind this British-flavored sonic goodness? Vox loaded the AC15 Custom with three 12AX7 preamp tubes, and equipped the power plant with a pair of EL84 power tubes. This arrangement gives you great sustain, amazing response, and distinctive, compressed overdrive when you crank it up. The AC15 Custom's beautiful signal is pumped into a premium Celestion Alnico Blue speaker - the perfect complement to a fine amp!

AC15 Custom Tube Combo 15-watt 2-channel All-tube 1x12" Guitar Combo Amplifier with Tremolo, Reverb, and Alnico Blue Speaker

I could of not of believed the experience I have had with the Vox AC15 Combo Amplifier. I just purchased a used PRS SE Orianthi electric guitar and the tone of the amplifier was none that I have heard or played before. My hats off to VOX. The craftsmen ship is impeccable and I am in awe of all aspects of the VOX performance. The Alnico Blue speaker is incredible. Before purchasing the VOX I listened to both the Greenback and the Alnico Blue. My choice for me was the Alnico Blue. Thanks to Sweetwater for having this outstanding VOX amplifier as a choice. Pleasure to do business with and a big THANK YOU!!!

After first plugging-in, of course I did as most players probably do---that is to experiment with the various tone and volume options between the Normal & Top Boost channels, in conjunction with the Master Volume & Tone Cut functions. And WOW....what an interesting array of sounds available! Upon my finding just the right "ear/amp love relationship" for the set of songs I had chosen to play during that session, a new experience came upon me. As I played one of my Teles---clean, but using some 12 o'clock amp Tremolo---I soon felt this amazing sensation of "oneness" among my guitar, the pulsating depth of the amp, & myself singing...like I never experienced before from playing out any of the many amps I've owned during the past 50 years. It's got the cleanest, bell-like tone, yet with an inversion of the volume dials of the channels cited above, you can instantly convert to Deep Purple distortion, andyou're suddenly "smokin' on the water"! Other features are GREAT Tremolo Depth & Speed, & SUPER Spring Reverb via its Level dial! I do believe ALL of you will LOVE this amp, as I do, & even more so if you are a boomer, & grew up on The Beatles, Stones, Byrds, etc., as I did! Those sound reproductions are a natural with this amp.Again, I give the highest compliments to Mike Soper---my long-time Sales Engineer---who described thisamp to me most accurately, & who answered all my questions both before & after the sale! Ask for Mike Soper, as you'll be working with the very best, & most knowledgeable, friendly guy you could ever find!

AC 15 Custom Tube combo

Got this two weeks ago and got instant good vibes. The EL 84's are so sweet and once the Blue Alnico speaker wears in, it's going to be clubbing tone monster. I'm playing through Strats, one stock, one with Dimarzo doubles coils. It's a lot like a Mesa Blue Angel, but not as hot,

Great AMP

I just picked up back playing after 15 years away. Had a tube amp back in the 70's and switched away in the 90's. The sound and clarity is amazing.

This amp is awesome!

This is the amp to buy if you're looking for that classic British rock clean dirty chime. I've been eyeing one for the longest time at my local guitar shops. I've tested them over and over and then i finally realized i needed to get one for small studio recording. The construction of this amp is near flawless, even though it's made in China. Vox has the Quality Control down for these amps. They are solid builds and i couldn't find an imperfection on it whatsoever. I'm very satisfied with this amp. I choose the AC15 C1X (the blue alnico speaker option) and it sounds sweet! I play a fender strat and LTD (metal) guitar through it and the tones are just perfect. I can dial up as much clean or i can dirty up the clean sound a little if i choose. Don't be mistakened by 15 watts. It's a LOUD 15 watts. But it gives me enough headroom to dial in the settings and have the clean chime break up just where i want it.I'm very happy with this product. My Sweetwater Sales Engineer Brian Kerns was very patient and very helpful with my many questions and with this transaction. The amp arrived in flawless condition and packaged safely for the long ground shipping route. I can't recommend this amp enough! Go try one out for yourself if you're looking for that classic clean british, Beatles, UK sound and chime.
