    B57D28FF-A4B3-4565-96CC-637D56186F24.jpeg My first tube amp, really loving it! It just inspires me to play more. Before I was getting by with joyo American sound direct into my speakers, but this is a whole other world of creamy goodness! Found that it takes pedals well too, happy with this!

    It is a great amp. I had one of those, and it didn't sound a whole lot different than the AC15 I had beforehand. Just a lot lighter! The digital reverb is very good, but you won't want to have it much past 9:00 or it's way too much.

    Great amps. Still one of the best tube amp values out there. Loved mine with the Tele and Strat. Just seemed very in synch with the single coils. Enjoy every note!

    That’s a good amp. I had one of the white ones and thought it sounded great. Congrats!

    Congrats! You made a good choice - the ac10c1 is a great sounding amp and really has the Vox sound(s). I've always been more of a "Fender guy" but really enjoy my ac10c1:)

    yes, I had feared that I would not be able to drive the amp enough to have it sound good, but it seems ok. Of course, it is begging to be played loud, but at bedroom volumes I still can get satisfying tones for my purposes. Tele here!

    The thing about this amp is that it sounds great at pretty much any volume level. I did have to turn the bass back a bit because the low end (to my ears) was a little loose, but only if I cranked the preamp gain all the way up. I ended up running it fairly clean when playing live, using a Timmy clone to drive it.
