OVERVIEW

A limited edition tan AC10 for classic looks and sound.

The AC10 was one of the first amplifiers to bear the VOX name and was available only for a short period of time in the early 1960s. Long adored for its ability to achieve rich, articulate tube tone at very manageable volumes, the AC10 has become a highly coveted piece of VOX history since its discontinuation in 1965. Now in 2015, VOX is proud to reintroduce the AC10C1 and provide players with an easy way to enjoy the legendary VOX top boost sound. This limited edition tan-skinned version, equipped with reverb and a master volume, makes it the perfect companion for the home, studio or stage.

Comments about Vox AC10 10W 1x12 Limited Edition Tan Tube Guitar Combo Amp Tan:

First a correction to the web page where this amp is listed: the speaker is a 1x10inch, not a 1x12 as listed up top on the page. If you read the specs, it lists the correct 10inch V-type speaker. This listing error has been made by every other retailer selling this amp, not just MF, so I suspect it comes from Vox. This did not bother me as I had sorted that out prior to ordering, and because the 1X10 in this cab sounds BIG, not at all boxy or overworked. It sounds better, in fact--wide-ranged but mellower--than the 12" V-type in my AC4C1-12. I imagine I'll use that in-cab speaker at grab-and-go jam and practice sessions on occasion, but most of the time I'm running the amp through the extension cabinet output to an Avatar 2X10 with Alnico golds. Awesome projection of midrange and that Vox chime, plus gives a deep underbelly punch that really brings out the best of this amp. It sounds like a lot more than 10watts through an extension cabinet.

The Vox AC10C1 has been getting rave reviews this year at TDPRI and other online forums, and for good reason. I'm really appreciating the distinct gritty-but-articulate character of this amp. This box is packed with vox chime but the string harmonics don't step on each other's toes, they play together quite respectfully. The Celestion Gold 10s do seem to make the most of that. I'm running the speaker out through a Jettennuator, which allows me to crank the master up some to work the power amp tubes at practice sound level, matches speaker impedance for me, and provides a direct line out for recording, which this amp lacks.

It really does sing with a tele, and the strat guys seem to love these too. My MIM Blackout with the middle pickup kicked in transcends quack for a driven, warm ballsy funk-blues-punch that's addictive--exactly what I've reaching for in my head for a long time now.

Pedalheads note, you will not be able to shake the Vox chime out of your tone. Like the Dude, this amp's smooth sweet grit abides.

Comments about Vox AC10 10W 1x12 Limited Edition Tan Tube Guitar Combo Amp Tan:

Good studio or small gig amp...controls are very sensitive, especially reverb which can be overwhelming. Nice tone. I mostly use it with Gibson semi hollow bodies and it allows for tube tone without being too loud. Would be nicer with a second input jack (I like to have two guitars ready to play), but a small mixer or a Y pedal cures this.
