Used by Bernard Butler on the 2015 McAlmont & Butler tour: "The Lehle Dual feeds my 1964 Vox AC10 Twin and Lazy J J20. The Vox is cross patched between both the normal and vibrato channels. The Lazy J uses the brilliant channel with the normal dialled in equally but not active. 1964 Grey panel Vox AC10 Twin: brilliant channel (high gain), out of low gain into vib/trem channel high gain. The Lazy J normal channel is active and colours the tone even when it is not plugged in."more
The AC10C1 is an all-tube 10-watt amplifier that joins VOX's flagship lineup of tube amps, the Custom Series. More portable than the AC15 and more powerful than the AC4, the AC10C1 provides an array of classic VOX tones and comes equipped with studio-quality reverb and a master volume.
The AC10 was one of the first amplifiers to bear the VOX name and was available only for a short period of time in the early 1960s. Long adored for its ability to achieve rich, articulate tube tone at very manageable volumes, the AC10 has become a highly coveted piece of VOX history since it's discontinuation in 1965. Now, in 2015, VOX is proud to reintroduce the AC10C1 and provide players with an easy way to enjoy the legendary VOX top boost sound. Enhancements include reverb and a master volume, the AC10C1 is the perfect companion for the home, studio or stage.
Had mine for about two months. Can't say enough about this amp. Way more punch than you would expect from 10watt 1x10. The tone is exactly what I love. I normally use a tele with Seymour Duncan Alnico II's but have tried other guitars all with great results. Using an old 80's DOD chorus, Joyo tremolo, and way huge aqua puss along with the the built in reverb works great. Plan to get another to go stereo.
Bought mine from Sweetwater with an upgrade to a Celestion Greenback speaker. Awesome clean tones with my tele. The built in reverb is very usable. Probably upgrade the tubes in near future. Very loud for just 10 watts. Very nice top boost breakup for some great Vox crunch. Plays nicely with my pedal board. I highly recommend this amp, under five bills with the greenback.
Lovely clean tone, although the 2 band EQ is a bit restricting. The Reverb sounds natural, and the gain control allows for some light distortion. Great for starting out with some gigging
