    In one of the posts here I commented that I pay taxes to Sweetwater when I buy something from them. So, of course, I get on the website and one thing leads to another and the next I know on Friday I ordered a VOX AC 10... "It will be there tuesday, make sure someone is there to sign for it..." So, after threatening some family members to make sure to sign for me (answer the door!), it arrived today, at noon, while we were out for a late breakfast. Now, that is FAST. I order Friday afternoon and it's here the next day, at noon! Saturday!

    The "bad" : I know this has pretty much nothing to do with a classic Vox amp, only in name. It's made in China, it's MDF, nothing to do with hand to hand wiring... It was, with taxes, $462.

    The "good" : It does sound good! It has that chimney Vox sound, it gets narly when I crank it up, and it does get loud. I am pretty happy with it, so far. I'm just a "hobbiest" nothing great here, it's fine for me. IMG_20191012_134627.jpg

    Thanks! This is my first new amp in about 6 years... It does sound really nice. I wish Sweetwater would let you choose between the obligatory candy pack or some picks with their logo on them...

    Congrats, new stuff is always a good day. I wish my new guitar was getting here that fast. I ordered it last week, still probably five weeks out

    Just my opinion: I find the stock speaker just fine, no plans on changing it.

    Sounds (and looks) like a great home amp. Never disappointed with Sweetwater either.

    My grand kids eat the candy. They love it when something comes from Sweets Water!

    Congrats! I always get excited when I see the candy. I don’t know why.

    There is nothing wrong with the AC10C1, mine has fallen to the number 3 position behind my Supro Comet and my 68 PRRI but only because they have Tremolo. The Vox is still a great sounding amp, a little loud but killer clean chime in it.

    I have looked at these many times, but "do I need it?" always wins out over "do I want it?". One of these days
    "do I want it?" will win. HNAD.
