AC15C1. Upgrade the glass... you can thank me later.
Looking for a strictly home-based Vox amp. Considering an AC15, AC10, or Mini Super Beetle. Single-family home. Play primarily clean. ...
Yes, I’m primarily interested in using it to play olds 60s instrumental stuff like The Shadows.
I have a Vox AC30S1 for home use, and it sounds really good to me. ...
The amp has a Volume control.Interesting. I hadn’t considered that amp, assuming it would simply be too loud.
AC10C1-VB has arrived and it's just what I wanted it to be. A bit of gain and half volume and it's about where I play at home for loudness (85-90dB). More volume tends to not get much louder and starts to compress instead, but more gain gradually gets it up to 105dB which is where I stopped. But a nice amount of headroom with single-coils, a bit less with P90s, and a bit less again with hot humbuckers.I'll be getting one.
Apparently, back when Joe was building and selling direct, he took some deposits on amps but didn't follow through on the builds, stopped responding to emails, etc. I'm unclear whether the customers affected were ultimately made whole again, but because of it he became a bit of a "don't do business with" name here.Dare I ask what that's all about?
