A Workhorse Amp Head with Built-in Attenuator

The Vox AC15CH delivers the classic chime and complex grind that has made the brand famous. This 15-watt design was one of the first to define the British sound and continues to be used on stages and in studios around the world. The AC15CH's 15-watt output offers manageable volume in the live environment while still being able to get above the band. And the onboard reactive attenuator offers that same sound and feel down to bedroom levels. Grab this AC15CH when you want all that's great about a Vox in a versatile amp head.

Vox AC15CH Electric Guitar Amplifier Head at a Glance:
  • One of the proudest lineages in guitar amplification
  • Power and preamps
  • Vox reactive attenuator
One of the proudest lineages in guitar amplification

The AC15CH's circuit is among the most recorded amplifiers in history because of the chime and sparkle it delivers. It's because of this sound that Vox amplification has been a staple for guitarists since its 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. This Vox AC15CH will never go out of style because of the number of players still depending on its design.

Power and preamps

The combination of the Vox AC15CH's Class A, EL84-driven power amp and its Top Boost preamp gives the amp its iconic sound. The famed Top Boost section adds sonic control and high-end detail to your guitar sound. A 15-watt power section sounds full and driven onstage or in the studio, cutting through the mix without dominating the other instruments. And Sweetwater guitarists agree that Vox's AC circuit is one of the best for taking any variety of favorite effects pedals.

Vox reactive attenuator

Older Vox AC15s have always had a great sound. But to get the breakup that many players love, you had to crank them to live performance volumes. But Vox's reactive attenuator on the AC15CH amp head lets you have that same glassy attack at bedroom volume levels. The reactive load works with your speaker to ensure you're getting the same sound as you would with a loud amplifier. And with settings at 15, 1.5, and 0.15 watts, finding the perfect balance for your use couldn't be easier.

Vox AC15CH Electric Guitar Amplifier Features:
  • Legendary 15-watt British guitar amplifier head
  • Normal and Top Boost channels
  • Built-in tremolo and spring reverb
  • EL84 power delivers the chime
  • Reactive attenuator for quiet performance
The AC15CH is the perfect amp head for Vox lovers.

Excellant amp

This is a great amp especially the top boost. The only complaint I have is the reverb sucks. Even when the dial is fully clockwise, you can not hear any difference in the sound. So if you buy this amp and need reverb youll have to depend on a pedal. But otherwise the tremolo feature is good. Its distorts real easy too. No effects loop if it matters to you. Would of gave it a 5 rating but the reverb discouraged me.

Love it

This is a nice little head. Sounds fantastic. The attenuator function is really great, because it doesn't degrade the sound much at all but makes it able to be fully cranked for practice without getting the HOA after you.

Great Amp

Great Vox sound with warm overdrive when pushed. I swapped the V30 speaker (not a shabby speaker) in my Avatar cabinet for a Celestion Blue and the sound improved immensely. Make sure you match this head with the right speaker and cabinet. Right in this case is what sounds good to you. The attenuator works very well. It will cut some of the highs out. But this is easy to compensate either on the amp or with an EQ pedal. The attenuated volume works very well for home practice. I've also had great success running different pedals in front of the amp. It does NOT have an FX loop so this is the only option. IMHO the amp takes pedals well.
