To commemorate the 50th anniversary of VOX guitar amplifiers, Vox introduced the AC15H1TVL, as the ultimate collectable AC15. This is number 486 of 500 Produced.
Our AC15HTVL comes to us in excellent condition. There are some minor scuffs on the mahogany enclosure, but beyond these small blemishes this amp is in amazing condition and sounds fantastic.
The AC15H1TVL was issued in a mahogany “TV Front” enclosure. This amplifier, like the others in the Heritage Collection, will transport you the golden age of VOX tone, combining the prized EF86 preamp channel of 1958 with the 1963 Top Boost channel all in one amplifier. Add in some modern tone shaping control enhancements and the result is perhaps the finest VOX amplifier in the company’s 50 year history.
What makes the EF86 based VOX amplifiers sound so good? Maybe it’s the way the amp naturally overdrives. Or maybe it’s the raw power of the creamy distortion as you crank the amp all the way up.
Whatever it is, there is an undeniable magic about this period of VOX amplifiers. The EF86 Pentode tube is at the heart of this elusive tone, and for many years, the EF86 tube was not available in production quantities.
Fifty years later, the magic returns.
