Vox AC15VR 15-watt 1x12" Valve Reactor 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.

And besides

I gaveva full review of this great amp but what id like to discus is that i ordered this amp from sweetwater and a guitar from another Guitar megastore . The very next day the amp arrived with free shipping. I paid $20 for shipping with this other company and im still waiting on my guitar. 5 days later.

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.

Always Top Boost

For the dinero the '15VR is extremely good. It is loud, and it has plenty of spank with the clean channel. I play mine off the floor several inches, and find best to my ears with the treble knob around ten o'clock and the bass around three o'clock. The reverb doesn't do much until past one o'clock. The first OD channel is great when just a bit louder than the clean channel. Very tubey. The second OD channel is too much gain for me (your brain may differ). I have A/B'ed this amp with an Orange Tiny Terror; the TT has way more gain at almost all settings, and it's lots easier to get a clean tone at volume out of the AC15VR. I've owned this amp for a little over a year and it gets played a lot cranked and quiet. It's very close to all-tube level. Also, for recording, the AC15VR seems to do its thing also at lower loudness. Very nice. I'm glad to own and use this amp. It is very easy on the eyes, and gives a good account of itself sonically. It will do as well as any all-tube 15-watter I've ever used. The single 12AX7 double triode is used as a push-pull low-power driver to a MOSFET final amp. The tube is in the signal chain, unlike many hybrids, so the amp needs several moments to warm up after switching on. Overall, the effect is superb.

Sounds like a fully tube amp

I absolutely love the Vox Ac15vr for its tone. It sounds like a fully tube amp, especially on the od1 channel. With the high gain channel as well, this amp is very versatile. I also love the fact that it takes this amp a very short amount of time to warm up compared to fully tube amps. This is a great amp for the money and can produce classic AC15 tones to modern high gain tones. The only reason I didn't give this amp a 5 is because of the reverb. It was far to weak for my tastes.
