The Limited Edition Vox Cream Custom Series Amps features the G12M-65 Creamback speaker that has been revived by the Celestion Company, fulfilling the hopes of many guitarists. The sound of mid-60s rock has been resurrected for today’s players. The Vox Custom AC15 1x12 amp is a perfect studio pet, or a live amp in medium-volume situations.
With an appearance and design that emanate an atmosphere of premium sophistication, and colour scheme that captures the heart of aficionados, custom colour models have been popular since the beginning of the VOX brand. The vintage cream is a great match with the Tygon cloth, and they’re sure to stand out on stage. These are ideal amps for any guitarist who seeks originality in their performance.
An Evolution in Tone
The VOX AC15C1 offers two channels; Normal and Top-Boost. Each channel is equipped with its own Volume control, and the Top Boost channel offers highly interactive Treble and Bass tone controls. This powerful channel pairing provides an abundance of tone-crafting control, letting you dial in a classic tone that is all your own. Both channels rely on the Tone Cut and Volume controls in the Master section. The Tone Cut control operates in the power stage rather than the preamp stage, allowing an additional degree of tone-shaping. The Master Volume control works in conjunction with the individual volumes of each channel to create just the right degree of gain-staging. By balancing the individual and Master volumes, the Custom Series can deliver the coveted clean VOX ""chimey"" sound or a powerful overdriven tone – and everything in between.
Sound in Motion
You can sweeten the sound of VOX AC15C1 by using the VOX Classic Tremolo effect. Both the speed and the depth are adjustable, making the Tremolo circuit extremely useful, allowing you to generate just the sound you want. A warm Spring Reverb is also included on all Custom Series amps, adding spaciousness to the sound. Using the Reverb and Tremolo together can create even more interesting effects. These onboard effects give the Custom Series their deep personality, and will add new dimensions of sound to your own playing.
There is no mistaking true tube tone. The AC15C1 makes use of 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes. A pair of EL84 tubes in the AC15C1 Limited Edition gives you 15 Watts of power. It offers a switchable 8 ‡ / 16 ‡ jack for powering an external speaker cabinet when you need to speak with a little more authority; using this jack will mute the internal speakers. The extension speaker jack allows you to run an additional 16 ‡ cabinet along with the internal speakers for a fuller sound.
Green or Cream
The Limited Edition Vox Cream Custom Series Amp models have a further trick-in-the-tale, featuring the Celestion Company’s latest speaker, the G12M-65 Creamback. With a higher power handling capability, it retains a tradition vintage tone but with some extra low end definition.
No doubt about it. The VOX AC15C1 Limited Edition Custom guitar amplifier has a lot to offer – dual channels, tremolo, reverb, and more. It can use the VOX VFS2A footswitch, allowing you to turn the Reverb and Tremolo effects on and off as you continue to play.

I compared this to the AC15 with greenback speaker and an AC30 with greenbacks. The creamback speaker really tames the shrill highs that the greenback can accentuate and gives it a bit more bottom. Considering it's a 1x12 I felt it really gave a well balanced sound. I haven't gotten out of the top boost channel since I got it (4hours ago now), so I will have to add to this at another time. So far it's a win!
