Tube Amp vs. Solid State – What Sets Them Apart?

Vox amplification holds a prestigious lineage in the world of guitar amplifiers, with a history dating back to the British Invasion of the 1960s. This brand has been the trusted companion of legendary players such as The Edge, Brian May, Tom Petty, and John Scofield. The AC15 is a testament to Vox's enduring legacy, known for its distinctive chime and sparkling tonal character. Musicians across generations continue to rely on the timeless design of the Vox AC15 Custom, making it a staple in the world of guitar amplification.

Power and Preamps: The Heart of the Vox AC15 Custom

The Vox AC15 Custom derives its iconic sound from the combination of a Class A, EL84-driven power amp and the revered Top Boost preamp. The Top Boost section adds sonic control and high-end detail to your guitar's sound, ensuring clarity and brilliance. Despite its modest 15-watt power, this amp packs a punch on stage or in the studio, effortlessly cutting through the mix without overpowering other instruments. Furthermore, the Vox AC circuit is famous for its compatibility with a wide range of effects pedals, allowing you to shape your signature sound with ease.

Loaded with a Greenback: Sonic Brilliance

Distinguishing itself from the traditional AC design, the Vox AC15 Custom features a 12" Celestion 25-watt Greenback speaker. The Greenback imparts a mellower, midrange-focused sound that softens the harshest frequencies and delivers a balanced and warm tone. The exceptional quality of these Greenback speakers has made them a staple in guitarists' cabinets worldwide.
