An Evolution in Tone
Vox Custom amps offer 2 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 sound that is all your own.

Both channels share master Tone Cut and Volume controls. 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 Vox Custom Amps can deliver everything from a clean Vox "chimey" sound to a powerful overdriven tone.

Sound in Motion
You can sweeten the sound of your Custom Series amplifier using the Vox Classic Tremolo, with adjustable speed and depth. A warm Spring Reverb is also included on all Custom Series guitar amps, adding spaciousness to the sound. All Vox Custom amplifiers can use the Vox VFS2 footswitch, allowing you to turn the Reverb and Tremolo effects on and off as you continue to play.

Power Sharing
The Vox AC15C1 combo makes use of three 12AX7 preamp tubes and uses a pair of EL84 tubes to drive a single 12" Celestion G12M Greenback. All guitar amps in the Vox Custom Series offer a switchable 8/16-ohm output 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. Additionally, a second extension speaker jack allows you to run an extra 16-ohm cabinet along with the internal speakers for a fuller sound.

It seems everyone who is interested in this amp are in the dark. There are no consumer reviews of it anywhere. So I hope this helps someone. I have owned anything from all tube Laney to Marshall amps and still own a Vox AD120VT, which is the reason why I bought this amp. Because all I ever ended using were the Vox models. Anyway I am very impressed with this amp! The normal channel sounds great, but then you plug your guitar (I'm using a Tele deluxe with Humbuckers)into the Top boost and wow! A whole new world of chime heaven. Very warm, rich, dimensional, and articulate. and very big in sound for it's size. For a 15 watt amp this little guy is really loud! I set this amp up next to my AD120VT balls to the walls both amps at level 10 and the AC15C was holding close to even with the AD120VT (120 watts). This does not make sense to me! I guess true that tube watts are louder than Solid State watts. You can easily play with a loud drummer with this amp and still have some clean volume before break up. I also liked the overdrive. When the Top boost channel was gained out the break up was thick and warm. There were a lot of complaints about the Vox AC Custom Classic series reverb being to big and washy. I don't know if Vox used the same reverb tank in this amp. It too seems a little big, but I like it. Think of the opening theme guitar riff of Shine On You Crazy Diamond. As for eq there is a tone cut knob for the main volume (power amp section) that gives you some control of any treble harshness you might have. The Top boost channel is more versatile then the Normal channel it also has Treble and a bass knob to tweak it's preamp's section. Before I bought this I thought I would need to get some good tubes for it, but it sounds great the way it is and I'm sure Vox designed the amp circuits around the tubes they would use in production. I can't wait to try out some Mullards and Tung sols in it after the warrenty expires. The only thing I wish this amp had was pedal jack to switch between the 2 channel, but it's Ok that can be done with an a/b pedal switcher. Aside from that I am very happy with every thing about this amp and I feel like a made a great choice in buying it. I would definitely recommend it.

ac15c1 Good luck getting one without any undesirable noises. I'm sure they are out there. The two that I tried both had a sneaky frequency issue that sounded like chirping crickets. A high pitched noise would soar over the (lower pitched) notes played. The sound was inherent to both amps - I tried them in multiple locations with multipe guitars with both amps and then I tried them in the clean sound room at the guitar center. I like the sound of these amps but I'm hesitant to drop the money for a "custom" made one.

        Comments about Vox Custom AC15C1 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

        I'm am a fender amp guy but always was interested in that VOX sound. I started out looking at the 4 watt, 12 inch speaker so I went out looking for it to give it a test. I played it several times in several locations. Then I looked at the AC 410 it was nice too. So now I'm confused oh which to get. My mistake was to try the AC 15 no I'm really confused. So now I find myself playing the 3 voxes every time but each visit to my local guitar center I was playing the AC 15 more then the other two. I have several male guitars. Mostly high end ones, I would bring them down to play with the AC 15. Let me tell you I was sold. I purchased the AC 15. I must say it's was a wonderful decision. For people on the fence I'd say get it but rember it is not a Fender, or any other amp it's a VOX! It is what it is. Some reviews I've read say it doesn't have this or it doesn't have that, what it does have is that great vox sound. When you buy it also order the cover and don't complain that it doesn't come with a cover. Cars today don't come with spare tires !!!! Look into the VOX foot switch to work with the tremolo and reverb. Also look into getting an ABY switch. I use a radial engineering switch. Trust me these are worth the investment for the AC 15 or AC 30. I love playing through this amp. I still am a fender Tube guy but I do love this VOX. Oh and by the way it's a heavy amp about 50 LBS.

        Comments about Vox Custom AC15C1 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

        This amp is amazing! I love the cleans, they are truly luscious! I could go on and on about the sound quality and the beauty of this amp, but to keep it brief I will cut to the chase. This amp does not have enough built in gain for my taste (I play hard and punk rock). The obvious solution would be to run a distortion pedal, trust me I know. I have a boss me-70 multi fx pedal, this amp does not really handle it well as it gives a static feedback when it is activated. Still I love this amp and would not regret this purchase one bit.

          Comments about Vox Custom AC15C1 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          I bought a Vox AC15 to compliment my new Gretsch 6120. I opted for Vox over Fender because of the great crunch-gain Vox produces in addition to the excellent clean sounds. It's so easy to get good sounds out of this amp! My only regret is not buying the AC30 instead. Steve at Winter Park store is the best, too. He's been helping me for many years.

          I checked out several amps considered comparable in size, power and features including Fender, Blackstar, Marshall, Orange and others before purchasing but kept coming back to the Vox. It just has an absolutely beautiful crisp clean sound and awesome drive with PLENTY of volume! Seriously just give this amp a try and you will not be sorry.

          When shopping for an amp I asked the advice of several people on which amp to buy (I play Blues). No one recommended the Vox regardless I chose this amp because everyone was rating it 5 stars and the other brands that were recommended were not rated as hi in customer satisfaction. I am very happy with it the performance is everything and more than what I expected the sound and tone is incredible.

            Very excellent amp. really couldnt decide weather to get a Fender or this Vox, I tested them both out and decided without a doubt the Vox had such a cleaner sound. My main concern about this amp was the pricing. I decided to drop out of Architecture School cause i mean, this amp is totally much more worth than my education. Sold all of my stuff from my apartment, and im now sleeping on the floor... But hey, on the brightside, i have a Vox amp
