One of the defining features of boutique amplifiers is that each model is unique, but if there's one thing that can usually be said for all of them, it's that they're labors of love. That's certainly the case for VOX, which was born with the release of the AC1/15 in 1958 - the result of lots of hard work by Dick Denney and his talented crew. Later, it was officially named the VOX AC15, and quickly became the foundation of VOX Amplification as we know it today. And while the music world has changed a lot since the early 60s when the company was getting off the ground, there's something that hasn't changed: boutique tube amps like the AC15 are still the kings of tone.
If you've ever heard Vic Flick's legendary recording of the "James Bond Theme," then you've heard the VOX AC15 in action. Vic was one of the many London guitarists who adopted the original AC15 in that initial early-'60s period, and it's only grown more popular since then. In fact, VOX has produced a few different flavors of AC15 throughout those decades, and with a look through this section, you may even spot some real treats among the "previously loved" amplifiers in stock right now.
For a perfect example of what the VOX AC15 has to offer, look no further than the AC15C1 Limited 15W 1x12 Two Tone TV Front Tube Guitar Combo Amp. This classically-designed amp looks like it came straight from the 1960s, and as great as its styling is, the real beauty is on the inside, where it's stuffed with three 12AX7 preamp tubes, a pair of EL84 power tubes and a 12" G12M Greenback Celestion speaker. You'll also find a full set of AC15 hallmarks, including independent volume control for each channel, as well as the VOX Classic Tremolo. Plus, since it's part of the Custom Series, it comes with Spring Reverb and is compatible with the VOX VFS2 footswitch.
With a VOX AC15, the word "custom" applies in more ways than one. Not only are these boutique amps designed by one of the best amp engineers in the business, but they're also loaded with all the controls and connectivity you need to completely personalize your tone. If you've been thinking about owning a piece of amplifier history, then you've come to the right place to do it - and you'll have what you need to make your guitar sound better than ever.
