For Musicians Only :: Amps :: Vox AC15

Vox AC15
 
Vox AC15 
SOLD!

Here’s a really special amp. This is a Made in UK Vox AC15TB (‘90s Korg era) with vintage spec upgrades. The UK made Vox amps from the ‘90s are highly prized for their superior sound and build quality. Most players agree, the current Chinese made Voxes aren’t even in the same league.

So this was a great amp to begin with, then it got the Vox amp upgrade, made popular by Toneman, Don Butler. The stock output transformer has been replaced with a Mercury Magnetics Axiom clone, and a Mercury Axiom choke has been added. In addition, critical components in the signal path have been upgraded – carbon comp resistors, etc. The upgrade was performed by the late Mark Miller, a truly spectacular amp tech who worked on Blackface Fenders and Plexi Marshalls when they were new. The current cost of a Vox AC15TB upgrade is $420.

I have left the stock Vox Bulldog 12” speaker because, quite frankly, it’s the best sounding speaker for this amp. Believe me, I’ve tried many others – Celestion Blue, Celestion Gold, Greenback, V30 – all great speakers, but in my opinion, none of them sounded as good as the stock Vox Bulldog speaker. Not quite “Voxy” enough. Of course, you’re welcome to swap out the speaker yourself. Just make sure you hang onto the Bulldog, because you’ll want it back.

There was a stock Vox AC15TB that sold on eBay recently for $1350. It had the Celestion Blue, but it wasn’t in nearly as good shape as the one - http://www.ebay.com/itm/VOX-AC15-TB-Mid-90s-Blue-Speaker-CUSTOM-CASE-/121239986386?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c3a7760d2 - this amp, by comparison, is a bargain. The amp is all intact, nice and clean, and comes with the original Vox footswitch plus a really sweet looking vinyl Vox amp cover.
