A unique design that breaks new tonal ground for VOX amps!
In collaboration with legendary American boutique amp designer Tony Bruno, VOX has taken a trip into new tonal territory with the TB18C1 guitar combo amp, featuring an all-tube, Tony Bruno design.
The VOX/Tony Bruno amp story
After establishing a strong working relationship with Tony Bruno, VOX decided it was time to embark on a full collaboration and allow Tony to design a circuit that they would put into production “ a first for both VOX R&D and for Tony Bruno. So, combining Tony's expertise with both vintage and boutique amplifiers and VOX's resources and development team, they set sail on the seas of tone into unchartered waters.
First, Tony personally built and hand-wired a prototype that met his uncompromising standards. This amp would be used as a benchmark that would be continually referenced throughout the project. After the initial evaluation, VOX R&D made a replica of the unit using a PCB design instead of Tony's usual hand-wired method. Tony was then unleashed onto the new sample which allowed him to modify and add new features to suit his taste. After many rigorous voicing sessions with Tony, it was agreed that the teams had something that not only shared the same excellent tonal quality of the original unit, but also included features that would otherwise be impossible to create without the use of VOX R&D's modern development and production resources. These TB35C2 amplifier is the result of this uncompromising collaboration between VOX R&D and Tony Bruno.
