  • Vox AC15C1 users, still happy?

    I'm amp shopping, and the AC15c1 is high on my list, in fact I even had a dream about it last night I was thinking about the Egnater Tweaker, but some posts on TGP have me leaning now toward the Vox. I think the amount of "tweaking" I could do on the Tweaker might be cool, but also a distraction. So I want decent cleans, but good overdrive tones from my amp. THis seems to fit the bill. I hear people regularly change the tubes, so I might do that. Otherwise, any reason not to get this amp? I can get a good price on it new too.

    hey

    after you posted in my amp thread, ive been looking into the ac15c1 as well as the ac30c2, i was thinking about either getting the ac30 and a small amp, but now im thinking bout getting two ac15 instead. they seem to be amazing amps

        They do seem to rule. I wish they hadn't used mdf for construction, but I can live with that I guess. I would have paid an extra $100 or so for a pine cabinet, but what can you do.

        They take pedals well? I've heard the Crowther Hotcakes is the THE overdrive to go with Vox, not sure why this is, or am I imagining this?

            Hell yes. Had mine for over 6 months and it still blows me away. Changed the reverb tank out and it made it my perfect amp.

            Edit: the Hotcake works great with it, as does my Beano Boost (any Rangemaster type pedal would probably be great). It also takes fuzz well, my Hoof and Lunar Module sound great through it.

              no, separately tried them out at different guitar centers.

              i would imagine they are insane in stereo.

                Good to know, I like my fuzz too, Musket and a Keeler Fuzz face. I might get a Hoof as well.

                  PLEASE GET THIS AMP!!!!

                  Its awesome! I saved my self a good $500 because I was seriously looking into the ac30, but I realized I will never need anything that powerful.

                  so I got the ac15c1 from sweetwater (its was a demo unit $550 ) and man I could not be happier. but dont let the 15 watts fool you it is still loud and proud! sounds great miced in the studio, and miced live! I used it for its first gig Friday night and I have never got so many compliments on my tone in my life!

                  great amp man. sorry if I sound like a vox spokesmen right now

                    My buddy used to use an AC15. It seemed to me like the thing had zero headroom. User error?

                        Should have some headroom, but maybe in a band context, it was a bit taxed. I only need it for home use (for now) so 15w will be more than plenty. Vox cleans are nice, different from what I'm used to.

                          Pretty much what my advice was going to be. I loved the AC15 and I was brought onto the Vox scene by this very amp. At the time my budget was smaller so I was considering the VC30, but man does the AC15 blow the VC30 out of the water with its buttery tones.

                          But gotta think about the headroom problem. There is some, but not lots and lots. And given that it's an odd arrangement with the channels, it's not easy to get around.

                          Or just beg/borrow/steal for an AC30, the greatest purchase of my life besides my main guitar and maybe my very first guitar.

                            FOr me, the AC30 would be overkill for home use, wouldn't it?

                              It would be. I can assure you because I own an AC30, "bedroom" volumes make it sound honky and not as full as it should be. (then again, most tube amps are like that. YMMV.)

                              I'd check it out, it has a greenback in it, no? Greenbacks are ****************ing great.

I think I write or play to impress the hot cool hippy chicks not mega millionaires actresses, thats why he sounds plastic.
