Overview

The AC10C1 is an all-tube 10-watt amplifier that joins VOX's flagship lineup of tube amps, the Custom Series. More portable than the AC15 and more powerful than the AC4, the AC10C1 provides an array of classic VOX tones and comes equipped with studio-quality reverb and a master volume.

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 it's 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. Enhancements include reverb and a master volume, the AC10C1 is the perfect companion for the home, studio or stage.

I purchased this amp a few days ago because i wanted another small watt amp for the smaller places i play and i got to say this amp is awesome! It has fantastic tone and a whole lotta punch for only a 10 inch speaker! If your looking at this review wondering how this amp sounds, well it sounds very similar to an AC30. Nice highs, powerful lows, pleasant mids! I find myself having to turn down the lows a lot just because this amp can produce so much bass! Overall just a great amp! I own a Blues Jr. and this amp in my opinion is the better amp to own! It takes pedals really nicely and can be driven really well! Also this amp is really well built. Just like any other Vox amp, the craftsmanship is meant to last! I had to write this review because i wanted to let people know just how good this amp is! I own several really nice amps including an AC30, Blues Jr, and Hot Rod Deluxe and for the price of $450 there is no reason to pay more when you can get a better product for less! In my opinion this is the best low watt amp under 15 watts you can get today! And I'm so happy Vox finally made one! So do yourself a favor and try one out and trust me you will be bringing it home!

This is the second Vox AC10 I've ordered this month. The sound is beautiful but while playing on low E and A some notes producing buzzing sound almost like something is loose inside the tube (lightbulb sounding buzz) took first one back to the store played different guitars same thing buzzing is still there.Sales Associates were also confused and confirmed that there is a buzzing there, so it's not just me not the cable and not the guitar. Played on different settings with or without Rev. Mose bass less bass. The only time You will not hear buzzing when overdrive all the way up. I'm Playing the blues with overdrive 30%to 50% .I Ordered the second one, Same thing. Very disappointed cause I really like this amp,I'm going back to the store and will be exchanging for AC4

      Comments about Vox AC10 10W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      I've owned this amp for nearly a year now and I have to say, it might be one of my favorites I've ever owned. Don't let the small package fool you - 10 watts of tube power can get loud, easily enough to keep up with a drummer at practice. If you're worried about playing gigs with such a small amp, don't. If you're playing at any decent venue, they always mic up the amp anyway. It has separate volume and gain knobs, so you can keep it cleaner at higher volumes or get breakup at bedroom levels, which is perfect for me since I live in a city apartment with roommates. I often keep the volume knob at around 9:00 and the gain knob around 10:00, and that's plenty enough volume for me when my roommates aren't home.

      I think the thing I love best about this amp is the sound. When you plug in a Strat, it sounds like a Strat. a Les Paul sounds like a Les Paul. Unlike other amps in its class, this amp really retains the sound qualities of the guitar instead of the amp itself taking over the sound. The breakup on this amp is phenomenal. It honestly sounds pretty close to some of the $1000+ boutique amps I've owned in the past. The gain doesn't get too broken up even at the max setting, but it sounds great. If you need more gain, just chuck a pedal in front of it.

      The digital reverb is maybe the only caveat I have with this amp. When set to a lower setting (around 9:00 or so), it sounds great, and rivals some spring reverbs. However, anything past say 10:00 and it becomes too spacey. I wish Vox had made the reverb knob on this amp have more of an incremental difference, instead of having it max out so early on at 10:00.

      Other than that, though, this amp is near perfect. I seem to have been lucky in getting a good one right out of the factory, as I have not experienced any hiss or rattle, and I have been playing on the stock tubes for a year now. I presume that once they go and I upgrade the tubes, this amp will sound even better. I own the tan version and it's a beauty.

        Comments about Vox AC10 10W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

        So I fell victim to the propaganda that surrounds the Fender Blues Jr. I just assumed because it worked for so many other musicians that it would be just the thing for me. WRONG. I went through 2 Blues Jr's and they both sounded awful. I spent hours just trying to find a tone that would draw me in. The tone just didn't have any character to me and the overdrive sounded terrible very ice pickey.

        I knew i wouldn't be happy with this amp and brought it back. The guys at the Oakdale store were awesome and very helpful. I tried the VOX and absolutley loved it. Light, had all the features I wanted, nice low end, beautiful definition and clarity of notes, nice mids. I couldn't believe the sound coming out of this little 10watt 10 inch. So easy to get a nice overdriven tone with this at decent volumes and the overdrive is wonderful.

        I brought it out to a jam with 3 other guitar players and drummer, bass, keyboard and I cut right through no problem and had plenty of volume to spare. Everyone came over and couldn't believe how awesome the tone was. I was shocked as well. I was playing a Fender Roadworn w/ Tex Mex, a FFM2 Germanium Fuzz Face and Wah. Killer tone, delightful feedback and never ending warmth without losing definition.

        Couldn't be happier with this amp and can't believe I never had tried a VOX before. It is important to find what works for YOU and not what everyone else in the forums are saying. Give this amp a shot, guarantee you will be amazed.

          Comments about Vox AC10 10W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          When I realized I was skipping chances to play cause I'm old and hate hauling my 52 lb. amp, I started looking for a LIGHT grab-n-go (tube) amp, and this thing sounds great! I've owned numerous amps over the years, and this little dude can grunt. My first thought when powering up is "this amp is loud"! (I have not played with bass/drums yet) With the gain below 12:00 you can get that classic Vox jangle, especially with my Strat, crank the gain from 1:00 to 3:00 for some nice classic rock crunch. Kick in my OCD and this thing really rocks hard. Negatives? Reverb is kinda sensitive, keep below 9:00. No effects loop. Is it loud enough for jams/gigging? If miked yes, with a 3 piece non-miked probably. To be determined. Looks like a mini AC15 and at 27 lbs, its like carrying a case of beer with your guitar!

            ITS GREAT AMP,IT GIVES ME A THROW BACK WHEN I WAS BARELY NEW TO PLAYING GUITAR 17 YRS AGO, BECAUSE I STARTED PLAYING BEATLES TUNE, MY ONLY COMMENT ON THIS AMP OR EVEN THE AC15 HAS THAT CERTAIN HISSING SOUND THAT ALWAYS OCCUR WHEN YOU PLAY LOW E STRING , EITHER OPEN OR BAR CHORD. I TRIED DIFFERENT GUITARS, EVEN A UKULELE, AND IT PRODUCED THE SAME HISSING SOUND.

              Yes, it truly has great sound, is very loud, is very portable, all the good things others have written are true. However, as some (if not many) have written about, it's a gamble that the amp you get will not have the rattle, crackle, hiss, that is also written about. They and the two AC4TV Mini's that I previously had all had this sound when hitting the low notes on any guitar. After an internet study, I opted to order two JJ Electronics EL84 Power tubes, and 2 Tung-Sol 12AX7 PreAmp tubes. So now, it is every bit the amp it should be, just bummed that I had to spend $65 to get it to the quality it should have been from the factory. Vox should just put quality tubes in and not risk their good name on a gamble with cheap tubes.

                  A Blues Jr was my main amp for about three years. It was time to try something different. I'm not into distortion gain metal. I play country, blues, classic rock. This amp has fantastic tones. Quite portable. It will do a small club easily. I would think a jazz mellow guitarist would love this amp. Ten tube watts is not like solid state watts. This amp can get pretty loud. I love it. I use an Ibanez tube screamer instead of the gain.
                  Service at San Bernardino store is always great. I've been buying there for years.

                    Amp sounded great at the store and even better after I got it home. I play a LP with 57's and it sounds amazing. Another guy in the store was playing an AC 15 right beside where I was demoing the AC10. The 15 sounded great but the 10 stayed right there with it tone wise. I also demoed a Bassbreaker 007, but at the end of the day, the Vox just sounded better to me. Really happy with it. No buzzes or issues on the low notes.

                      This amp isn't as loud as an AC15, but it sounds so much like it you'll be surprised. VOX did a good thing re-releasing this little amp. There are so many things to love about this amp, but I'm constantly impressed at how much it gives while staying clean.

                      I needed an amp smaller than my Fender hot rod Deville and wanted to venture more into more British tones and do after some research I picked this amp up and fell completely in love. The small cab and 10 inch speaker do lack slightly in the low end but not to the amps detriment. Instead of being shrill and trebely like I was worried it would be, it was bright and punchy and it sounds great! This immediately replaced my Fender when it comes to playing at home and I am finding myself wanting to buy an ac15 for playing with a band live. The amp is capable of more volume than you'd expect for a 10 watt but I don't think it's quite enough to keep up with a drummer without being mic'd into a PA. One last thought, this amp handles pedals very well. Every pedal I've put through it sounds amazing.

                      Well, the first amp that came in the mail did not work so I had to return it to the guitar center store near me. However, a new one was ordered and the amp sounds amazing. More than enough stage volume while clean and if you crank it up it's that nice dirty sound we all love.

                        I bought this after using a Vox AC4-12 for around a year. This amp is in a completely different league. Full sound, not boxy at all, and a richer, deeper bass. This is it for me for a while. Absolutely love it. No regrets whatsoever.

                          I was looking for a quality and affordable tube amp for my home use and this was my choice. I read several negative comments about this amp but my unit is working just fine. I love the simplicity of this amp. A perfect home studio amp! The GC in Riverside ordered this amp online for me with $100 discount so it was very nice.

                            I am a professional musician looking for warm clean vox tones. I wanted full tube, but a low enough wattage that the combo is practical in smaller spaces. This amp is perfect for that. I record, I gig, I lead worship. This is the second AC10 I have owned. the first one developed a hum and had to be returned.

                                So it was down to this and the Fender Blues Junior 3, which is more expensive; but that's not why I chose this amp. I will go with whatever sounds best. This Vox blew me away! I've had several different types of amps over the 14 years that I've been playing guitar, and this is easily one of the better sounding amps that I've ever had. For the money, it's very hard to get the low end growl and the high, piercing shriek like the kind that this Vox puts out. I don't go on the road; I'll play little lounges, or out on a patio, so it's plenty loud for that. Pair it with a halfway decent condenser mic and you'd be all set for a nice bluesy, funky, or jazzy recording.

                                The main reason I went with this amp is honestly because the speaker seemed to sound a lot better on this one vs. the Fender, which people will say is crazy, but test them out side by side like I did, and I'll bet you choose this one too! And the "hot" button on the Blues Junior 3 didn't really do much for me. It's not as crunchy in the high-gain arena as the Fender, but I don't shred metal anyway, and lets be honest: you're not going to do that with either amp, it's not really their wheelhouse.

                                Aesthetically speaking, I'm not a huge fan of the gaudy gold name-plate made out of plastic, or the fact that you can't see the tubes light up from anywhere on it, but these are small trifles that don't affect the tone at all.

                                Right now I have a MIM Fat Strat, but in the store I played a electric 12 string through it, as well as a Jazzmaster, and a Epiphone les paul, all of which sounded right at home with this thing.

                                  Went to Guitar Center in North Charlotte to trade in a Bugera BC15 for an all tube amp. Had the Blues Jr. in mind but wanted to try the Vox AC4. At the North Charlotte store they have a sound isolated demo room and I asked the sales staff to bring in a Blues Jr. and an AC4 into the room for me to demo. I pulled a standard Mexican Strat off the wall and played around with both amps for a while. I like the tone of the AC4 but there seemed to be something missing. Reverb maybe? So I decided to try the AC10. I plugged in to the AC10 and the tone that I was looking for was there in spades! I went back and forth between the Blues Jr. and the AC10 for a while but kept coming back to the AC10 . I play more clean these days and the cleans with a touch of reverb sounded exquisite to me. Glassy and bell like chime and an expansive reverb. The amp is also beautiful. And light for its size. I am very happy with my amp and the gracious staff at Guitar Center North Charlotte. My advice is to go play one of these amps and keep an open mind before you buy one.

                                  I bought this as a solid "learner's tool" that would give me the spread of sounds and volume needed to compete with a smallish drum set played with dynamics under control.

                                  I love the variety of sounds available, but I do think it would be a bit more desirable if the clean sounds didn't break up quite so fast at higher volumes.

                                  Also, I have to really dial back the volume knob on my Telecaster when the gain is high enough for max distortion. With the master volume up anywhere past 2 on the amp, the noise levels are too high—almost dangerous. To compensate the noise and still produce a super amount of distortion, I dial back the vol on my guitar.

                                  So, it covers a lot of bases for a sub $500 tube amp. It would probably sound better mic'd with a good PA system and a solid pedal board.
