VOX Amplification’s New AC15C2 "Twin" from AC Custom Series Now Shipping
October 6, 2011
|VOX Amplification is now shipping the AC15C2 “Twin” combo amp from its popular AC Custom Series of tube amplifiers. This enhanced version of the AC15C1 adds a second speaker, providing two 12” Celestion Greenbacks. The AC15C2 “Twin” also features the larger spring reverb tank found in the AC30C2.
The AC15C2 “Twin” offers both Normal and Top Boost channels, tremolo, spring reverb, an effects loop, and footswitching capabilities. The tube amp design uses three 12AX7 dual triode vacuum tubes in the pre-amp section, and two EL84 pentode tubes in the power stage.
Each channel is equipped with its own Volume control, and the Top Boost channel offers highly interactive Treble and Bass tone controls. Both channels rely on the Tone Cut and Volume controls in the Master section. The Tone Cut control operates in the power stage rather than the preamp stage, allowing an additional degree of sound-shaping. The Master Volume control works in conjunction with the individual volumes of each channel to create just the right degree of gain-staging. By balancing the individual and Master volumes, the AC15C2 “Twin” can deliver the coveted clean VOX “chimey” sound or a powerful overdriven tone – and everything in between.
The classic VOX tremolo effect is equipped with adjustable controls for both the speed and the depth. A warm Spring Reverb is also included. With its larger dual speaker housing, the AC15C2 “Twin” features the larger reverb tank normally used on the AC30C2, adding spaciousness to the sound.
The optional VFS2 footswitch provides a hands-free method for turning the Reverb and Tremolo effects on and off while performing.
