The all new Vox Handwired amps are here. The AC15HW1 is powered by a duet of EL84 power tubes with an EZ81 rectifier and a trifecta of 12AX7 preamp tubes for pure classic Vox tone. The traditional Vox two channel design has been used with Normal and Top Boost channels with some extra features. The Normal channel features a Bright switch for extra sparkle on those darker sounding guitars while the Top Boost channel has an added Hot/Cool switch for bypassing the tone stack. This allows for the guitar signal to directly hit the power amp for more gain and power. The new Vox Handwired amps also feature a Master Volume for playing at lower levels but there is also a Master Volume bypass for cranking up and getting all the tone of the power amp as well. Lastly, there is an output mode switch for cutting the output power in half for those quieter sessions or for getting that Vox drive at lower levels.
The cabinets are birch-ply with solid bracing and a natural high frequency diffuser covered in vintage Fawn tolex just like the 1960 AC30. This combination of functional design and classic styling breathe new life into the Vox line up. The AC15HW1 is loaded with a Celestion Greenback for vintage break up and tone. If the old school of Vox tone is what you seek, the Vox Handwired AC15 is a perfect place to start.
