Vox AC15

Vox AC15 Review

An absolute classic, re—imagined for the modern age.

The only reason this amp, which delivers great quality sound and some really nice sounding effects, was not our pick was that some players may find it a little expensive for a small guitar amp.

You get what you pay for with guitar amps, though, and so the price of this Vox model represents the fact that it is perhaps the best sounding small guitar amp around at the moment. The tone produced by classic amps like this is, of course, a matter of taste, but in our opinion there is no beating the vintage tones of Vox amps.

It also looks great, as you would expect from an amp with this level of heritage. If you play in a blues or jazz band, it looks amazing on stage, and will really fit in with your aesthetic!

PROS
  • With 15 watts of power, this is one of the more powerful small guitar amplifiers we reviewed. Whilst this level of power is not strictly necessary for the practice room, having a powerful amp confers other advantages – with plenty of voltage on tap, the amp is able to control its speaker cone to a higher degree of precision than with some less powerful amps, ultimately equating into better sound quality.
  • The amp offers twin channel amplification, with one channel labeled “Normal” and the other “Top Boost”. Both sound great, with the clean tone of this amp really bringing out tremolo sounds, and able to deliver great tone separation even when the amp is pushed to its maximum volume.
  • With 15 watts of power, you may never need another amp. If you are playing large venues, of course, there will likely be a dedicated PA to plug into, and so getting a 300 watt monster of an amp is somewhat unnecessary!
  • If you want a classic British rock sound, this amp is an absolute must. Whilst it is adaptable enough to deal with all genres of music, its most iconic uses were back in the 1960s, when The Beatles were fans of this amp. If you want to replicate the sound of the swinging sixties, this is the amp for you.
CONS
  • Very few. If you are looking for a small guitar amp that will deliver gorgeous vintage tones, this is the one for you!
