I've been wanting a Vox forever. Beatles. Tom Petty. Brian Adams. Brian May. Crowded House. Such a unique sound that informed my musical tastes. Well one came up at a decent price in great condition and I jumped. And it's worth it. That chime. That distinct breakup. Nothing until you experience it in person. Been grinning all night.
The plan was to get a new AC10, thinking it would be better for home play. The AC15 has a rep for being LOUD. But one came up for less than the AC10 new, so I took a chance. I don't get that criticism. Of course it sounds better and better as it gets louder and louder, but it still sounds fantastic at low volumes. And the addition of a really good spring reverb and tremolo was nice. The tremolo surprised me. More useful than I thought it would be.
Always thought I was a Marshall guy, but I'm definitely a Vox guy as well. So I'm set for both, as well as a (Micro) Orange. Eventually a Fender will finish the collection, but I'm in no hurry. I have my tonal bases covered for now.
