Vox AC15C1-BL Blue Limited Edition Combo Amp Features
An Evolution in Tone
- Vintage 1963 Blue vinyl and classic Tygon fret cloth
- Normal and Top-Boost channels with individual Volume control
- Classic tremolo and reverb, both footswitchable with optional switch
- Three 12AX7 preamp tubes and two EL84 power tubes
- 1 x 12 inch Celestion G12M Greenback speaker
- Switchable 8 / 16 ohm jack for powering an external speaker cabinet
The Vox AC15C1-BL Limited Edition Custom Series amp offers two 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 tone that is all your own. Both channels rely on the Tone Cut and Volume controls in the Master section.
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 AC15C1-BL Limited Edition Custom guitar amp can deliver the coveted clean Vox ‘chimey’ sound or a powerful overdriven tone and everything in between.
Sound in Motion
You can sweeten the sound of the Vox AC15C1-BL Limited Edition Custom guitar amp by using the Vox Classic Tremolo effect. Both the speed and the depth are adjustable, making the Tremolo circuit extremely useful, allowing you to generate just the sound you want. A warm Spring Reverb is also included on all Custom Series amps, adding spaciousness to the sound.
Using the Reverb and Tremolo together can create even more interesting effects. These onboard effects give the Vox AC15C1-BL its deep personality, and will add new dimensions of sound to your own playing.
There is no mistaking true tube tone. This Vox combo amp makes use of 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes. A pair of EL84 tubes in the AC15C1-BL Limited Edition drives 15 Watts of power through a single 12 inch Celestion G12M Greenback. A switchable 8 / 16 ohm 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. The extension speaker jack allows you to run an additional 16 ohm cabinet along with the internal speakers for a fuller sound.
No doubt about it. The Vox AC15C1-BL Limited Edition Custom guitar amplifier has a lot to offer – dual channels, tremolo, reverb, and more. This amp can use the Vox VFS2A footswitch, allowing you to turn the Reverb and Tremolo effects on and off as you continue to play.
