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.

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!

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



Oct 13th, 2018 04:01 AM   Edit   Profile  

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.
