About: Its retro design is not the only thing that shines out about VOX AC15C1 Tube Amp. It has a lot of nice features and it is definitely worth the price. We’re very excited to talk about this product, so, let’s get started without wasting any time.
Features: We will get to the features of VOX AC15C1 Tube Amp shortly but we want to talk a little bit about why we wanted write a review about this product. VOX AC15 was one of the most popular products among the tube amp users and the manufacturer of that product wanted to create a successor to that.
That is why we wanted to bring this product to you and provide you more information about it so that you can have a better idea on whether VOX AC15C1 VOX AC15C1 Tube Amp is a good option for you or not after reading our review.
It is always a good idea to know the size of the tube amp that you’re buying since it is a very important factor at determining your choice. We want to start our review of VOX AC15C1 Tube Amp by saying that it might be a better idea for you to avoid this product if you’re looking for a small tube amp. The main reason for that is that this product comes at 28.1 x 15.2 x 21.9 inches which is not small.
Another thing that is worth mentioning about VOX AC15C1 Tube Amp in our review is that it comes with two 12AX pre-amp tubes and EL84 power amp tube which we believe is very impressive and it plays a huge factor in the performance of this product. Keep in mind that warming up the tubes is necessary before you use them because otherwise you might run into various problems.
One of the things that we like most about this product is that it comes with a built in Tremolo and Reverb. You can control the depth and the speed with Tremolo. It is possible to product amazing effects with the built in Tremolo and Reverb.
It is worth mentioning that getting a 2-way footswitch is necessary to be able to take advantage of the Tremolo and Reverb. It might be a better idea to get the two button VFS2a footswitch manufactured by VOX but you will also be fine with any 2-button footswitch.
The one thing that we don’t like about the footswitch is that it is connected via ¼” jack which is placed on the back panel of the amp. The thing that is a little bit annoying is the fact that you have to set up your setting before you use VOX AC15C1 Tube Amp.
As for as genres, we should go head and say that it is not possible to product any kind of music in VOX AC15C1 Tube Amp. The manufacturer created this product to classic rock and indie. The thing that we like most about this product is the open and sharp sound that will never disappoint.
As we mentioned above, if you want to play high gain genres like heavy metal, this might not be the best option for you since it was not produced for those kinds of genres. However, other than that, we believe this is one of the best amp tubes in the market and it is definitely worth the price tag.

Paying hundreds of dollars for a tube amp might not be the smartest thing to do if you’re a beginner. However, if you have a certain experience with them, it can definitely be a good thing to do.
