    They had a lot of love when they first came out--how are you owners or former owners feeling about them a couple of years in?

    I enjoyed the one I played through but only had a brief chance.

    I've had mine for over a year now and still find it to be as versatile as always. It's a pretty loud amp for 10 watts.

    Still love it. Went to a guitar show recently and had no interest in the amps because my AC10 does it for me.

    Didn’t I just see one in the Arctic Monkeys’ backline on Austin City Limits?

    I’ve sworn off Tube Amplifiers but my ears tell me “just one more” when it concerns The Vox AC10. It weighs 27 lbs. and sounds better than a lot of high-end boutique Amps.
    Check out the pairing with Epiphone Joe Pass doing a Jazz Thing on YouTube and hear a really Soulful clean tone.

    I still am even though I had to trade up to an AC 15 because the AC 10 got swAllowed up in a six piece. BUT running it wide open and pushed inside out sounded GLORIOUS!!! Looking for a reason to grab another.

    Snap! I sold my AC10 to get an Origin 20... but unlike you I'm not sold on the Origin. I don't regret selling the Vox as it didn't do what I wanted, but I don't see a huge benefit from the Origin...

    The Vox however did it's own thing very nicely indeed, and I do miss it from time to time.

    This sounds absolutely brilliant through the Origin20 to get a variety of Vox tones.

    I didn't believe it either ... until I droped the $35 CAD and tried it.

    I got one last summer and definitely like it. It's my only non-Fender and chimey.

    Anyone have a boost pedal that works really well with the AC10? I haven't found 1 I really like so maybe I just need a very clean boost to push it..?

    I've had mine for two years and have gone through phases. I agonized over buying the Vox AC10C1 or the Blues Junior and decided on the Vox. At first I didn't like it, sounded very harsh and boxy. As the speaker broke in, it sounded better and better. I also learned how to make it sound the way I wanted and now I really like it. I recently bought a used Blues Junior and like it too, but I'm not selling the Vox.
