I have generally been happy with my two amps, which are a Peavey Classic 50 and Fender Blues Jr w/CRex speaker. But yesterday on a whim I bought a Vox AC15, which they had at GC (used) for $475. I had always heard a lot of good things about that amp, and it seemed like a good price, and I figured I could easily return it if I didn't like it. Having played it for several hours this weekend, all I have to say is: wow. The Vox really sounds amazing. It's very hard to put into words what it sounds like. Just much more present and alive and multi-textured. Sort of "three-dimensional," if that makes any sense. By comparison, the BJ sounds like it has a blanket over it, and Peavey just sounds... blah. The Vox sparkles. I had read where some people found it hard to dial in the right tone, but I did not find that to be the case. Just started out a noon, and tweaked a little. Some people say it's too bright, but I nudged the bass up (2:00) and nudged the treble down (10:00) and it sounds good. Left the tone cut way down (9:00). Haven't quite been able to get the real chunky sound that I get out of my BJ (CRex!!), but I figure if I fiddle with the settings on my pedals I can get close. The Vox has a Celestion Greenback, which might be due the credit for the sound. Very anxious for band rehearsal this week, to see how it cuts through. Overall, I just wanted to share my first impression, which is one of amazement. I had my heart set on a Princeton, but this thing cost half of the grand I would need to shell out for a PRRI. So that purchase may need to stay on the back burner for a while.
