I've been thinking about getting one also, I like Vox amps. I'll try too get a link to the AC 10 I really want.

Just couldn't get it to link. Anyway "The Doug and Pat show" on Youtube has some old AC10's they do a whole show on, type in Doug and Pat AC 10 to check it out.

Tuned Strings and Tight Lines

I have a '62 Vox AC10 single that suits me just fine. I always wanted a vintage AC15 single but, after getting hosed on an AC15 on ebay fifteen years ago, I went the safe route and shipped an AC10 over from a second market dealer in Great Britain. He said the AC15 singles are just too difficult to find and when they are, just plain too expensive. Obviously the AC10 is a simplified circuit from that of its bigger brothers but it rocks just fine for me. I have a '63 AC30/6 with TB added. It's a great amp but the AC10 gets more practical playing time.

I retrofitted a speaker jack to the cabinet because the stock Elac speaker won't blow your socks off. I play it through Boogie cabinet with a 12" Celestion Blue and it sounds great. It's one of my primary practice amps along with a '57 Fender Champ which I also retrofitted to play through the Celestion equipped cabinet.

As far as the new ones go, I like them. I have an AC15 with a Blue, and still I remember how good the last AC10 I played sounded. I might have even preferred it (but owned the 15 already).

I have a new AC10 I bought about a year ago and love it. I've owned several blues juniors and a few pro jr's, a 65 princeton RI and a silverface princeton and champ and still like those amps but must say the ac10 blew me a away. With this amp you don't need an overdrive pedal as you can dual in great tones from the amp that said with my overdrive and boost pedal I was getting to die for tone with my strat out of this thing. Go for it!

Stop.

Question for the OP: Are you talking about a new AC10, or an old/vintage one?

My AC 10 is the reissue AC 10C1

I now own it in addition to a Gibson Midtown Standard guitar
with Bigsby. The Vox AC10 looks new. Not a scratch and works fine.

I got both for a total of $1050 Canadian which is a great deal considering the guitar alone sells on Reverb for as much as 1600.00

That IS a great deal!

All the reviews I see love the new AC10.

I've got a new AC15 with the Blue and it sounds great.

I pulled the trigger on an AC10C1V this morning which has a speaker upgrade and a black grill cloth, other wise same thing as the AC10C1 I should receive it next week I'll check in here when I get it.

I received my new Vox and I think this thing is really a great sounding little amp, I've played it at 2 band rehearsal's now and it's right at home volume wise with a clear out front tone, especially with my DanElectro and Strat.

I went with the C1V model because it as a VT JR speaker upgrade and I like it better than the G12 greenback that I tried with it also (in another cabinet). I don't use crunchy gain much so I keep that dialed back quite a bit, but it's there if you need it. I do use a compressor pedal and it sounds very good with some on. The reverb can get out of hand pretty fast so just a touch is all I'll use, if any.

One of the best things is that it sits in the front seat of my Ford Ranger Pick up truck and it's under 30lbs so it's a grab and go amp that sounds very good on it's own. For an extra $27 I got a high quality Vox cover to go with it to help keep it look'n good.

Too Much GAS

I love me some Vox amps. I had never had one until I bought an AC15H1TV a couple years ago from Telewired, right here on the FDP. I absolutely love it. A great compliment to the 91 BFTRRI I already had.

To me, it's a much more versatile amp than the Twin. Not to mention a lot lighter and smaller to carry around.
