Vox AC15VR - 15W 1x12" Guitar Combo Amp
In Stock!

Get That "Vox Sound" at Unbeatable Value!

Go from vintage Vox jangle to modern-style crunch (and everywhere in between), with Vox's extraordinary and amazingly affordable AC15VR! With the tap of a footswitch, you can move between classic and contemporary tones, thanks to the amazing new tube technology inside the AC15VR. The secret behind this affordable combo amp's amazing tones is in the VR in the 15-watt AC15VR's name. VR stands for Valve Reactor, a technology Vox has been working on for a while - it's inside their renowned ToneLab pedals. What VR does is bring you more of the sound, feel, and dynamic range that you'd expect from an all-tube amp - only without all that extra cost and weight. You won't believe the diverse soundscape of sounds available in the Vox AC15VR.

What really kicks the 1 x 12" AC15VR over the top is its 2-channel design - normal and overdrive. That means this amp is made to handle your need for old school flavor and modern edge - and you can easily switch between the two vibes using an optional footswitch. Although you could just switch on the amp, pick a channel, and be guaranteed great tone, the AC15VR also features a ton of knobs for you to dial in your classic-yet-custom sound. Use the normal channel's bass and treble tone controls to balance your high and low ends. The overdrive channel adds a gain knob and a middle control for more defined tonal shaping. Reverb and master volume controls complete the package.

Playing a big gig and want to feel the power? You can use the external speaker jack along with an 8-ohm extension cabinet. When you use the jack, the internal speakers mute. Whatever you do, you won't believe how much real-deal Vox tone you have pumping through the room, and at such a real-world price. The AC15VR is the AC15 for the rest of us - you can't go wrong here.

  • 15-watt, 1 x 12" combo amplifier with Valve Reactor technology

Best Tube Amp Value

The AC15VR has a tube pre-amp that gives it the characteristic warmth with the consistency of a solid state speaker final stage. I've had it for a while, never had to change out the vacuum tube once. If you are looking for a vintage, bluesy, or warm tone, you can't go wrong with a tube amp. The AC15VR also is shockingly affordable, at almost half the cost of the similar pathfinder or AC15C1 Vox models. No faults so far, I would recommend that newbies don't try using this, as it takes maturity to find a decent tone.

Very nice and useful amp

I've had my '15VR about nine months now (purchased from Sweetwater, of course) and I really like it. It replaced a Fender Hotrod Deluxe, which is a very good amp, but too loud and messy sounding for me. The Vox AC15VR has a magnificent clean tone, and I for one actually like the digital reverb. When I record, I like to be able to give each instrument its own place in the mix as far as is practicable. This amp is great in that regard; it minds its own business and doesn't walk all over the other instruments, yet it keeps the voxy chime thing happening very well. This is an excellent studio amp for me. I'm a bass player, so this box never goes outside. It is great for working out parts and writing for me. I really like it.

For the price, it can't be beat

Well I have to admit, I was a little concerned buyin solid state even if it does proclaim hybrid. But when I inboxed it and plugged in my guitar I was impressed. I only have a couple of comments and here we go. #1. Right out of the gate you can tell it not a tube amp not by the tone which is great by the way but the sustain, it has plenty of bite/attack. #2. Those of you who like to run amp only you will not like the Reverb, even with it all the way up it just needs more reverb. For me that's not even an issue, I run pedals so I have all the reverb I could ever want. I mic my amp off stage with a SM57 it is a really clean amp and has that awesome VOX tone, On another note it accepts mid range and high end guitars very well low end not so much, you will want to have a good source for sure, it is vert transparent. It doesn't really hide what you are trying to push through it, which is a good thing. Hope the review helps. Would like to thank sweet water for their help, always a pleasure dealing with them.

Good Sounding Amp

I like it! Overall, the Vox AC15VR produces a nice, clean tone. Great for recording. I agree with the other reviewers about the reverb. It is basically useless. Turned up all the way, it is barely audible. That’s why I have a delay pedal to correct that. The overdrive channel is nice too, but I mainly play clean. And yes, it does produce a loud BURP when you turn it on. Slightly lesser when you turn it off. No big issue. Wish it came with a cover.

Nice for the price

I would echo most of the other reviews. The price point for this amp is really good. You do get your money's worth. I can say it sounds like...well, a VOX amplifier! One thing I find a little amusing is when you turn it on. I gives a hearty mellow pop and if your hand is close to the vent on the top left you can actually feel the percussion from the sound. Either that or it's passing a bit o gas as part of the warm up! Seriously it is very nice, and I would especially echo the weak reverb and that it takes to pedals very well. Nice amp!
