    The 90's AC-15 (Korg) seem to have two different names, TB and TBX. Is this the case or is there just one model? What are the stock transformers on them and what are common transformer replacement mods?

    The TB model has the eminence made black speaker; the TBX comes with the Celestion blue alnico speaker. The standard transformers were Drake and the most common replacement seems to me to be Mercury Magnetics. I have a TBX for sale if interested!

    I used to have an AC15TBX, great amp. I would add a choke if I was going to upgrade the transformers....

    The new ones are Korg as well. I had an AC15TBX and have an AC30TBX...both Brit-built. Good amps...those blue alnico Celestions really are efficient.
