Well, one was not enough, I had to have another. The first one I bought was such a squishy tone monster I had to have another, lets face it, two twelves are better than one. I have to be honest here, I have made some changes. I replaced the speaker in the first one with a Celestion Blue Alnico and I replaced the speaker in the second amp with a Celestion Greenback. Those two speakers are voiced different enough to really round out the sound, but I couldn't leave well enough alone. Well.... Vox doesn't make a 1x12 ext. cab. for the AC15CC1 anymore...tsk..tsk..tsk. Luckily I found a fellow on the internet that will build an ext. cab. for just about any amp you can come up with, so, needless to say, I loaded the original Wharfedale speakers into the ext. cabs he built for me and now I have a 4x12, 2x15watt tower of tone that looks as good as it sounds. And I can use it in any of it's many comb-o-nations. Don't listen to the nay-sayers, you can find a lemon anywhere, these are great little amps. I have been a professional musician(guitar player) since 1960, yes, 50 years, and I have played just about every amp you can think of, and at this point in my life, this combination of tone and portability can't be beat.

When I say know what you're getting into, I mean know what you're buying. Vox dosen't make the amplifier they use to. In the 1950's & 1960's, yes they did; they made some of they best amps money could buy. I ordered an AC-15CC1 on august 25, 2009. I recieved it four months later; I guess Vox was producing another batch... Whatever. I finally recieved this amp and brought it home from my local music store. I set everything up, let it warm up on stand-by, all that noise... It sounded beautiful. If you're use to using solid state amplifiers, this will blow you away. The sound is very full and although it is only rated at 15 watts, you need to remember you're working with a tube amplifier- it will be much louder than most solid state amplifiers rated at 15 watts; it's even louder than some solid state with higher wattage rattings. The amplifier itself is built like a tank- no problems with that. Everything is very easy to use and the simplicity is a plus. Reverb & tremlo are among the best I've heard, although you can't beat Fender in those two areas. I played the amp for one week- sweet, no problems. This is where the problems begin. I leave home for one week. When I return, amps still working same as it did when I left. I take two guitars in to that music shop to have them set-up. One week later, I bring them home. I fire my amplifier up with the stand-by switch engaged, letting it warm up to optimal operating temperature. I insert an input cable into the input jack, flip over the standbuy switch, start to play, but there was no sound. I tried it again. Still no sound. I tried changing the controls around seeing if anything would work- nothing. The tubes were glowing, but there was no sound (As they would say, the lights are on but no one's home). Tried different outlets in my home. Nothing. I ended up taking the amplifier back to the store to have it checked out. They sent it to an audio repair place nearby. That was one month ago. They said that the HT fuse had blown, and that the they found a shorted diode and two open resistors (82 ohm 5 watts). Im still waiting for Vox to send the replacement parts to repair the problem. So, in conclusion, I would like to say the following about this amplifier: When it works, and IF it does, you have one great Amplifier. If it dosen't, don't be alarmed, this is all to common- Vox dosen't understand that many of their products have been having major issues, most of which are overlooked at the factory. Remember, IT'S A NAME, you're paying for the name. The reliability is shotty. I would recommend looking else where for an amplifier; Fender for RELIABILITY, OR if you want that OLD VOX SOUND, look up JMI Amplifiers. You are forewarned. By the way, I've used Musicians Friend countless times in the past. The service is unbelievable. I haven't had one bad experience in the past. They MAKE SURE you're 100% satisfied with your purchase. Thankyou for your help over the years, Musician's Friend!

Best Amp I've Ever Owned

By Proud Owner-KSeqx

from Ohio

See all my reviews

I've owned other Vox amps (the pathfinder, the ac4, and the AD30VT) and this one blows them all away. Don't get me wrong, the other vox amps are great for practice, but when this thing cranks, the tones it gets are as good as it gets.
I can't say enough good about this amp:
-It takes pedals very well
-At only 15 watts it cranks at every gig, I rarely need to mic it
-Beautiful breakup, natural overdrive
-It's got that classic bright Vox tone
-Quality all the way around, you can tell the amp was made to be used and last forever

Rock Amp

By Matthew

from Chicago

I couldn't order this amp from MF because it was no longer in stock so I had a guy from GC order it for me , and it got there in a week. I play alt/rock in the city of Chicago and this amp is perfect for every venue. If its a bigger venue a mic is all you need. plenty of stage volume and the tone is the real deal. Buy this amp!

It kicks my blues Jrs ass.Ill be saving up for an ac30 with blues all year. Yay kiddos If u can play=buy it

Great, affordable Vox tube tone

By ClaptonFanDan

from Shingle Springs, CA

See all my reviews

Ask me a question

I just got my Vox AC-15 amp a week ago. I love it! I also love the foot pedal that allows me to switch reverb and tremelo on/off. This is a great affordable amp for those blues-rock/ classic rock enthusiasts. I can get Beatles and Clapton tones (even though Clapton favors Fender and Marshall amps) out of this amp. My SG and vox wah pedal make for a great "woman tone." Next on my amp list...an AC-30.

Lot a Power for a Little Guy

By Unite

from San Francisco, CA

The AC15 is one of the best amps I've played in years. Incredible tube warmth, clarity and power. You won't believe the sound and volume you get from a 15W. Bottomless reverb and vibrato complete the package. Seriously, try it for 10 minutes - with any guitar - and you'll be sold.

Best amp for this price I've ever seen.

By azn.210

from New Brunswick, Canada

See all my reviews

I walked into a local music store today torn between three different amps, and tried all - this AC15 outperformed the other two more than I could have imagined.Through it, I tried an Am.Deluxe Tele, an ES339, and a Gretsch 5120 to cover all my bases - the Gretsch sounded best, but all sang out beautifully and convinced me to take it home.Since buying it this afternoon, I've spent about four hours playing my heavily modified MIA Tele through it, and it's now my favourite non-vintage amp I've ever tried. My only complaint is that the tremolo controls are a little strange - I need a heavy touch on the depth knob, and a very light touch on the speed knob. Also, it was sold without a footswitch, but I'll pick one up the next time I drive into town.Overall, I'm very satisfied with my decision to buy this amp - a friend has told me that acoustic guitars also sound wonderful through it, so I'll have to try that out when I get a chance. I intend to use it mostly for recording, though, and maybe some small shows with my band. Good luck with it, if you decide to purchase it.

Amazing amp.

By Andy-AHfVp

from Iowa

I bought this amp looking to use for playing live shows...later to find out that I made the perfect decision. everytime I play this amp I like it more and more. It has such a unique tone compared to the Fender Hotrod Deluxe. I only wish that it was a litttleee louder. I have to turn it up a little bit over half way to get to the live volume that i want. It also sounds great miced up!! I love the temelo and reverb options on it. BUY THIS AMP!

Gets you there with VOX style & Sound!

By Jay-tj4Nr

from Plymouth, NH

See all my reviews

So I started looking at amps about a month ago, I wanted some tube-driven, in this price range. Couldn't find an Orange for that price, I already have a Marshall, so I narrowed it down to the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and the AC15CC1. I loved both, which made it VERY hard to choose between the two. I ended up with the Vox, mostly because of that uniquely crunchy, and chimey tone. And while it isn't as versitile as the Fender, it looks alot better, the distortion sounds better, and the clean tone is very good, but not fender good. There's no overdrive switch, rather, a "top boost" circut that has a seperate volume knob. Mixing the boost volume and the master (clean) volume gets you a loud, clear, and fat sound. I liked it on my SG, but LOVED it on my Gretsch. But as much as I love this amp, it simply isn't as versitile as the Fender Hot Rod. However, the AC30 is a MUCH better amp than the Fender Hod Rod DeVille. I'd love to say hang on to your money until you can afford the AC30, because it's definately worth the extra $, but the AC15CC1 will hold you over.But overall, it's a great amp with a great Vox sound, at a slick price.

Finally VOX valve tone for the working man!

By Barjack

from Portland, Ore

See all my reviews

I finally bought the amp I?ve been drooling over all year! In a world of cold onboard digital effects and 100W heavy metal distortion, the simple1-channel AC15CC1 is almost revolutionary. This 15W tube VOX beauty reacts to every minute tonal variation your fingers and guitar can create. I've never heard a new low wattage amp as deep and clear, the breakup is truly rock n' roll heaven, and the reverb/tremolo does that sought-after surf rock/spaghetti western tone. Well-built and beautiful enclosure, probably not as sturdy as an old Fender, but the tone makes up for it! Give the 12" speaker a couple of months to break in, the highs will mellow out. If clear, articulate vintage overdrive is your tone, there's simply no new amp under $1000 that is better than a Custom Classic VOX. Don?t even consider digital modeling offerings until you?ve given this amp or the AC30CC1 a good honest test. For most guitarists, 15 A/B tube watts beat 50 solid state watts any day!

Very impressive amp

By Queen Anne's Revenge

from Pike County, KY

I just bought this amp today, and I am very impressed. I have played it for hours tonight. It has a great tube sound, which means nice and clean at low gain, and it gets nice and dirty when you drive the tubes. I considered an orange "tiny terror", but I'm really glad I went with the Vox. Great British tone! I also own a Fender Hot Rod Deville, a Peavey Valveking 112, and a Marshall JVM 210h, and this little Vox is a welcome addition. I would rate this as good as any of the others. I bought it for a low-watt recording amp, but it may wind up being on stage more than I had intended. Again, GREAT AMP!

Vox AC 15 CC

By Jesse Dagel

from Ocheyedan, IA

See all my reviews

This is an unbelievable amp, especially for the price. It has a beautiful warm chime to it that only vox has. And for only 15 watts it's got lots of power. It reacts to effects very well even with no effects loop. I gave a 7 for features because it only has one channel which might seem limiting, but you can get lots of tones from that channel. Its Simple and effective.

I Love This Amp

By AmB4Yeshua

from Roanoke, VA

See all my reviews

I've owned this amp for a few months now and I love it. I was looking for an amp that had a rich thick tone in the cleans, and I found it above and beyond with this amp. The built in tremolo and reverb with footswitch give so much depth and range. Though the single channel clean to distortion knob could be a damper for some, it worked out well for me because I work out my distortion through pedals. Do pay attention to that fact though, it is only a single channel and the footswitch is for the tremelo and reverb only.I have a Fender Showmaster QMT HH running through it and I'm still, after several months, discovering new sounds. Excellent amp and I highly recomment it.

All about the sound...

By Bill

from Dayton, Ohio

See all my reviews

My AC-15 is the second one I've owned. I got the first one in 1965, gigged heavily. It finally broke in 1975, toe up badly. This current model does it justice. It could stand to be a bit louder with more punch. Half throttle and all top boost, it should be louder. Maybe I like loud better after all this experience, maybe it isn't as loud as the first one. It couldn't sound better, though. Mic it, let the PA do the work.

The bottom line

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Look, I can give you a whole bunch of specs and info on this amp, or I can let you enjoy discovering them for yourself. The bottom line? If you are considering buying this amp, do it. It was one of the best choices I made in my musical career, and I know that it will be one of yours too. Don't go back and forth between this and another similarly priced amp. The AC15 is what you need. There are better amps for a much higher price, but this piece simply dominates the competition in its price range. If still you are not convinced, go and play one. That is all it will take. :)

Played this amp at the local music store and within seconds fell in love with it. The speaker that comes in it isn't all that great but the manager at the store had his Dr. Z in the back with a Weber Blue Dog speaker and WOW!!! Just a flat out smooth amp. Needless to say I took it home with me. Great amp!!!

Wow, great tones with this amp!

By PeterN

from Kansas

I recently got the Vox AC15 tube amp. I tried it live along with my gt-10 mic'ed up to my PA. I was able to get amazing clean and hi-gain distortion lead tones. While I am still not sure about AC15's reliability (I heard there are fuse issues that some bad-luck users experienced), I am completely sold to its tones. Loved it thus far. Flip side, I don't like its weight, too heavy for 15W amp. Plus, it is a pain to replace tubes.
