Classic Vox Tube Pairing With Alnico Speakers Will Send You to British Tube Tone Heaven!
The Vox AC15C1 has been adored by music’s biggest names for decades for its distinctive ‘British’ tone and vintage Vox sound. Known as ‘the amp that started it all’, the AC15C1 delivers 15 Watts of pure British tube tone power through an authentic Alnico Blue speaker which faithfully delivers every decibel of that incredible Vox tube tone. Give this amp a try and you will be coming back to Vox as so many of music’s biggest names have year after year, for decades!
The secret sauce responsible for the AC15C1 Alnico's sonic awesomeness is its pairing of preamp and power tubes. That incredibly responsive, compressed sound with its distinctive overdrive and sustain when cranked comes from the combination of three 12AX7 tubes in the preamp section, and a pair of EL84 tubes in the power section. When that classic signal is then pumped through a 12“ Alnico Blue speaker the result is pure magic!
Equipped with two footswitchable channels, Normal and Top Boost (footswitch sold separately), the AC15C1 allows you switch easily between crunchy rhythm tones and more compressed Top Boost lead tones, making this AC15C1 Alnico extremely versatile.
The Vox AC15C1 Alnico also comes equipped with footswitchable reverb and tremolo which are especially ambient and bright. Unlike other amps that seem to drown out the amp’s authentic tone with effects, the tremolo and reverb on this Vox AC15C1 only add a bright and ambient quality that must be played to be fully appreciated.
