Overview

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:

    Wanted to share my 24 hour experience with the AC10. First, let me emphasize this amp seemed to best suit my needs. The tone was to die for, the size and power were perfect for my home. BUT...in 24 hours I went thru some issues I could not get past!

    About 1/2 hour after I started playing it, I noticed a tube lingering ring anytime I hit an E note, and not just on the open E string. It did not appear to be chassis or speaker related, and I took the back cover off to make sure all the tubes were seated properly, and they were. So I continued to play to see if it would go away. It didn't, and shortly after I detected a volume drop off.

    So I took it back to GC. BTW, the staff at that Farmer's Branch store is always awesome to work with. They changed all the tubes with Groove Tubes, and I thought it was sounding better.

    Last night when I got a chance to play again, the tone was slightly better with the GTs, but after about 10 minutes some of the ring returned. And then after about 1/2 hour into playing it went totally silent. I switched cables, and still no sound. Turned it off for ten minutes and it played fine.

    After it did the same thing this morning, I packed it it up and took it back to GC. Again, the guys there are awesome, and the manager offered to get me a new one. But he also offered to honor the same 15% discount on an AC15, which they also had in the limited tan tolex. Although, the AC10 suited my needs more, I went home with the AC15...which I know well from the past and this one is as great as the others I've owned or played.

    I may have just gotten the bad apple AC10, but I was over dealing with it. Just sharing my experience. Hopefully other AC10 users will get many years of enjoyment from theirs, because when it worked, it sounded awesome!

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

      Fantastic bedroom amp. Great warm tone clean or driven. Reverb is good when used below 9:30 which is suttle. Lucky for me right about where i like it. Speaker seems good should get better as well. Guitar straight in is all i would ever need.

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

      This amp is perfect, beautiful looks and powerful sound. This amp is loud enough to play smaller stages and bar shows. It def keeps up with the Fender Blues Jr, and being 200$ less than AC 15 it is a no brainer. Amp is so warm its unbelievable, even for 10 inch 10 watts it rocks. Some complain about digital reverb but anyone soaking there sound in reverb should be ignored, reverb should be subtle and if you know how to use it then this reverb will be more than substantial. There are no hum or rattle noises, like with the black versions of this amp, I love this amp so much I am going to buy a second to run stereo

        This AC10 performs very well. Great tones without the use of a lot of pedals. This little amp brings out all the different tone available on my Gretsch Country Gent.

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

        I love this amp, it is currently my main amp, I prefer this over my peavey classic 50 2x12 and my Fender Deville 1x12. I've played this amp without a mic line and it works for three piece and smaller stages, it is very powerful and the warmth is beautiful, the bass response is amazing. No one could tell its only a 10 inch 10 watt amp. There are no rattles or hums like the black Ac10s, I love this amp so much I am going to buy a second one to run stereo. Buy it before they are all gone.

          Amp is great..just what I expect from VOX. The transaction with guitar center.Com was a nightmare. Two months to get charges and order correct.
