Well for 2 months now I have been putting money into getting a new tube amp. Up to now I have just had a Fender Mustang amp which is okay but I really miss having a real tube amp. I had after 2 weeks of trying several out I found I liked the Vox AC15C1 the most for the money. However I live in an apartment so turning it up loud is not gonna happen expect when I am at a jam session. Due to this I decided I must try out the AC4C1 as it is much smaller and should work really well as a bedroom volume amp. But I had to order one and it took 6 weeks to get it but it finally arrived yesterday. So today I went and tried it. I had read threads about it on this website and plenty of others and the biggest complaint is there is no bass to it. Also for me it lacks reverb so that is an extra $100 dollars expense to get a reverb pedal. Well alas the forums where right there is next to no bass tone on the AC4. In fact I didn't find it all that impressive. It had a gritty tone and wasn't all that musical or pleasing in tone to my ears. I decided I must try out the AC15 in comparison and check to see if I can get good bedroom volume from the the ac15. Well I was totally amazed that I found it did come down in volume no problem and it sounded way better tone wise than the AC4 at a comparable volume. This is using the normal channel which I like for it's pure simplicity. And once I turned on the reverb on the AC15 I was in heaven. It just sounds so much better than the AC4 that there is no question which one I will be getting. And the fact that the AC15 also has the top boost channel and tremolo just is the icing on the cake. The AC15 all the way. Also for 10 dollars more my dealer is throwing in a vox cover for a ac15 amp and the vox footswitch from a AC15cc1 that melted down and no longer needs a footswitch. We tried out that footswitch with the ac15c1 and it worked perfectly. It is the deal of the decade for me. My AC15 however is one of the limited edition crème coloured ac15's which has the more expensive creamback speaker in it but the amp sells for the same price. Anyways I am bringing it home Tuesday so News Years Eve I will have something to do that night. Here is a pic of my new amp.
