I recently bought this amp and a Gibson Les Paul Vintage Mahogany. They go great together! It is the best setup for 1500$! This amp has beautiful sound and tone, and can get stinkin loud for 15 watts! I never need to turn it up more than half way through the master volume. The distortion is great but has only one sound. It is a crunchy distortion that can go heavier or lighter, but that is the only distortion it has so I would suggest getting another distortion pedal, but it isn't really necessary! This amp goes great with any guitar (best with Gibsons in my opinion) and for such quality, it is amazing they sell it for 600$!!!! It seems like alot when you first buy it, but once you plug in your axe, it is purely amazing!

I had an AC15 for a while and it was one of the better sounding amps that I've owned. Clean, it was very full and rich sounding and it would scream when overdriven. However, mine spent more time in the repair shop than in my house(literally). I know that mine was probably a lemon but I replaced it with a Fender Deluxe instead of another Vox. I would recomend looking into that, its got more power and a 2nd channel for the same price. Now, if your looking for a low wattage amp that won't disturb the neighbors, and tone is important, this is probably your amp. However, if you plan to use it for gigs, you may want to look elsewhere. If you do decide that the AC15 is for you, play it safe and go with the extended warranty.

Best Small Combo for Gig Guys

By ilovestrats

from Austin, Texas

I hate, and I mean hate, lugging big old combo amps around for gigs. This amp is sweet because it has smokin' tone and is really easy to haul around. Because I play in a cover band, I need flexibility when it comes to tone. The Vox ac15 fits the bill perfectly. I can front the amp with my selection of stomp boxes and shape just anything from Keith Richards to Malcolm Young. Dig this little baby. Get it in your rig.

TONE TO DIE FOR

By Jim Anderson

from Abingdon, MD

This Vox ac15 amp is the most amp for a very reasonable price. I was looking for an amp that had a flexibility and a tone quality that was far above par in tone and still not break the bank. I plugged into it for the first time and heard crystal clear and beautifully bright clean tone. Then I added trem and reverb to the soundscape and found them also to be so tastefully clean and pure. Once I was sold on the clean, I tried out the distortion channel. It was equally tasteful and I loved it from a small growl to an all out fuzz.Overall , the one word to describe this amp would be tasteful!

Incredible Tone, Incredible Value

By Will Ryan

from Nashville, TN

This amp really has blown me away. I bought it for the crunch channel, but the clean channel has proven to be incredible as well. I was looking for an amp with lots of versatility because I play a '69 Fender Telecaster and a Rhodes Piano through the same amp. The highs are bright and resonant, while the lows are booming and thick (especially using the rhodes). The reverb and tremolo circuits are also amazing, especially when running the amp clean. The AC-15 is very versatile as well. I play a mixture of folk, blues and indie, and this amp nails that perfect tone every time. I strongly reccomend trying out this amp for yourself. Let it prove itself to you.

What a Great Amp!

By brandon

from Colorado Springs, CO

I've been searching for a good tube amp to replace the Fender Deluxe I play. Most amps I've looked at sound fine at "just the right volume." Not the Vox AC15, it sounds fantastic from 1-"11". What's great about that is that if you're gigging in small to medium rooms you can crank the AC15 and let it work it's magic, or in bigger venues, you can mic it and the tone doesn't suffer at low levels. I looked at Fender, Peavey, Crate, Marshall, and some boutique amps, and the AC15 is BY FAR the best sounding amp in its price range. I play Rickenbacker and Gretcsh guitars because of the versatility and sound precision they offer and the Vox is the perfect compliment to those fine instruments. I've never heard a stock amp sound as precise and warm as the AC15 and it just growls with beautifully rich, warm overdrive. I'm buying it this week as soon as my tax return comes in and I'm stoked.

It's NOT the same!

By patdeezel

from Austin, TX

Fellow friends of mine who are professional musicians told me not to get this. I didn't listen, and I ended up buying the thing. I thought it sounded pretty decent, but when I got to take it home and play with it, I was disappointed. My friends were right. The amp sounded very thin and brittle. It didn't have the fullness and the warmth that old Vox's had. When I cranked up the top boost, the distortion just sounded like a clean tone with some fuzz on top. It did not sound cool at all. This thing also gets very noisy when you plug in your pedals. BTW, it's already noisey as it is, but it gets distinctively noisey when you use pedals with this amp. I don't recommend this to anyone. It does sound decent and still has that Vox sound. But it sounds cheap and doesn�ۡ���t have enough headroom. If you are looking for that true Vox sound with the warm, full, chimey sound, get one that was made in England. That's what I did. I ended up returning this amp and got an ac15 made in England off of ebay. This custom classic doesnt even compare to the English Vox amp.

Buy this amp, seriously

By SRVman72

from Chico, CA

I've owned this amp for almost a year now, and i absolutly love this thing. unfortunatly, at this moment my AC15 CC is in for service right now. But such are the pleasures of tube amps. That aside, this thing has great tone and head room for a 15 watt amp. It's got that classic british tone that distorts really warm, but you highs will still carry through. Buy this amp, its plenty loud and sounds great.

Solid Amp

By VTAmpsUSA

from Rochester, NY

I've always been a huge VOX fan and the new models aren't half bad... don't expect the classic EF86 tone but it still sounds 'VOXY'. For the price I think these are one of the best amps for rock players... they have a GREAT clean to crunch tone and stay really sweet if you don't push them full tilt. The reverb is sweet sounding as well as the trem (not that I use it much). I think the cheaper version (as opposed to the AlNiCo Blue version) does a great job of delivering good tone at a low price... made in China though and I haven't see many used ones that didn't show some kind of signs of falling to pieces. I don't know that they are all that reliable either... I guess you can't have good tone AND reliability for this price!

Fantastic

By Brain

from Pittsburgh, PA

This is my first tube amp, and it was well worth the upgrade. These 15 watts go a long way - it sounds great practicing at low volumes, and even better cranked up playing with a band. Sparkling cleans with loads of personality and crunchy overdrive that'll knock your socks off. Gets darn loud, and the tremolo is a vox classic. The reverb is good, not great (can't compete with a fender for some great reverb). It sounds amazing with pedals! I chose this over a fender hot rod deluxe, also a great amp - but this thing had tone that couldn't be topped, especially in this price range.

Great clean, not so great overdriven

By RochesterLoner

from Upstate NY

I was thinking about downsizing from my AC30 head to this little (but still heavey!) guy. I felt that the clean tone was just as impressive -- bell like for sure. The overdriven sound was really weak in comparison to the AC30, though. I don't know if it is the lack of a tube rectifier, a differen transformer, or what. It just doesn't sing in that nice, compressed way. Also, the stock speaker isn't that great. I don't know why Vox didn't use their own cheap speakers, which are really very nice.

Versatility is Awesome

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I do a lot of gigs where I swap out my axes (custom Tele and Strats) for accoustic (Martin off the shelf) and mandolin (with a condenser pickup). I love this amp because it sounds great across the board. Tones on accoustic instruments rival anything on amps made specifically for accoustics. I'd love a second channel on it, but for the money, this is great. As others have said, for axes you'll want to be getting your fuzz from pedals.

Amazing tones!!!

By Peter N

from Kansas

It's still too early to judge reliability of this amp. But so far, I have been able to create amazing clean and higain lead tones on this amp with my new Boss GT-10. Its flip sides are: heavy for a 15W, hard to change tubes (one has to take out the whole chassis to replace tubes).

First Vox and very happy!

By Brian

from Indiana

First off, I have always had fender amps and strats. I love that sound, but after I had to sell my Blues Deluxe(it was very loud) I was open minded for something else. I love to play blues but that's not all I play, I also need to have an amp that sounds great with an acoustic plugged in. I played the low watt fender amps, and they delivered a great blues sound, but kind of lacked on other tones. I never thought I would buy a Vox but a few of my buddies have them and with a little tweaking, you can get a great blues tone, but also a very warm clean tone, and crunch to die for. This amp is very versatile and I love the vintage style. It's in a bigger cab so the speaker can breath a little better than the blues jr which I liked. So overall I'm very happy with the amp so far, it takes a little time to get it dialed in, but it definitely has made me a believer in Vox. Get one!

Just amazing

By Chris

from New York

This amp is amazing. I got it and the moment I plugged it in I realized I found my dream amp. The only thing you need with this amp is an analog distortion (I have a bulldog distortion). The built in effects are very useful especial the reverb. This amp is great for every genera ranging from the cleanest thing you can imagine to (with a distortion pedal) the dirtiest highest output thing you can do.

Amazing Amplifier

By JeReMy

from Seymour, Texas

This amplifier is amamzing. I have to compete with a Fender DeVille and A Carvin 500 Watt Bass Rig, and this little 15 watt monster will to the job. All these who say it doesn't have a clean sound, obviously don't know how picking dynamics work or are using EMG's or some other active pickups with it. Granted Vox amps are just a little harsh but and sounds a little dirty...Some people refer to it as a "jangle" but I have played everything from Merle to Metallica with this amp. The only effects i run are a Crybaby, a TubeScreamer, and a Boss DS1. The amp does the rest.

Great All-Around Amp!!

By Drew

from Raleigh, NC

I purchased this amp after lugging around a Fender 410 Deville. Don't get me wrong, the Deville is great, but it gets old hauling it to band practice and small gigs. This amp fit the bill perfectly. It is a great price point for the Vox name, and sounds great as well. I am also a harmonica player and use this amp to plug my 50's EV mic into. The sound is amazing! For larger shows, you may have to mic this amp because it tends to break up heavier at higher volumes. All-in-all a great amp, buy it. You'll be glad you did.

i love this amp!

By dude

from houston, TX

l got this amp about a month ago i got this amp and it was one of the best buys ive ever made, it has claassic tube tone with a vintage feel. the clean is amazing and sounds alot like the lead guitar in sweet home alabama. when you have distortion on, it makes a prettty good sound for a lot of zz top and the free bird solo. the only down side to it is it takes a crane to lift it but you can fix it easily by putting casters on it. it is amazingly loud for it's wattage and i can play gigs with it when the volume is only turned at ten o clock. i think it is an amazing amp overal.
