There may never have been an amp boasting such a lofty and pure sound in the entire history of VOX. The VOX Hand-Wired Series relies on the painstaking technique of turret board hand-wiring – a method requiring a high level of skill and craftsmanship – is used, resulting in wiring that's beautiful in its artistry, ensuring an efficient signal path with minimal loss and no restriction in amplitude. In the Hand-Wired Series, tubes, transformers, speakers, chassis, and custom parts all join together in an ideal state to deliver the richest and most powerful sonic experience – the ultimate amp. Not bound by tradition, the VOX Hand-Wired Series also provides a variety of new functions that keep pace with the needs of today's artists. Offering a rich variety of tonal shadings and a broad model lineup, the enormous potential of the VOX Hand-Wired Series will reveal itself in any musical scenario.

The AC15 Hand-Wired combo serves up 15 watts of power through a classic single 12" Celestion Alnico Blue speaker. Equipped with three ECC83/12AX7 preamp tubes, two EL84 power tubes and an EZ81 rectifier tube, the hand-wired AC15 delivers all of those warm, juicy, luscious tube tones that VOX is famous for. The AC15 Hand-Wired employs two of VOX's most iconic channels, NORMAL and TOP BOOST, to dish out that legendary VOX voice. Both the NORMAL and TOP BOOST channels come equipped with independent HIGH and LOW inputs; the HIGH input provides more gain and output volume while the LOW input is quieter with more clean headroom.

The NORMAL channel sports an independent VOLUME control along with a BRIGHT switch for when you need some extra top-end shimmer. The TOP BOOST channel features a 2-band EQ (Bass & Treble), an independent VOLUME control, and a unique foot-switchable HOT/COOL switch. In COOL mode, the TOP BOOST channel operates in traditional fashion with the TREBLE and BASS controls fully activated. Great for leads and solos, the HOT setting partially bypasses the tone controls to offer a more pure signal path and a boost in gain. The MASTER section consists of a TONE CUT and MASTER VOLUME control with a bypass switch. Drop down to half power (7.5 watts) via the OP MODE switch for a less distorted power amp and smooth high frequency roll off. Dual external speaker jacks allow for use with an extension cab. Includes power cable, VFS1 footswitch and dust cover.

Worth the $$$


I downsized from a AC30C2 to the AC15HW1X and I would consider it a step up. Out of the box I powered it up and to be honest, I thought at first it was a little too bright and harsh. After playing for a couple of hours and tweaking the dials, the amp sweetened right up. Now I'm lovin it. Sam Ash shipped promptly and I received the amp a day earlier than anticipated.

Description is incorrect


I love this amp - but it does not have reverb or tremelo as described. I knew that before buying, but wanted to make sure that you did! Mine has Blue speaker (I have not heard the greenback version, but I'm sure it is great too). Have several $1000+ tube amps now, but the AC15HWX offers a clarity and rich dynamics not found in any of them (including my other vox amps). Very organic/soulful. Great headroom for cleans, with drummer and perfect classic breakup/dirty sounds. 7.5 watt switch is very helpful for driving amp in a quieter setting. At 15watt I do not mic my amps in a club setting - this amp is perfect in mix with drums, bass & other guitar. My AC30cc2x does not perform as well and is a beast to carry!
