Gearank High Notes

On October 18 2021 we announced the results of our annual analysis of guitar amp brands - Vox ranked #5.

Gearank Recommended

The AC15C1 appeared on our recommended list for Combo Tube Amps when we published our first edition of that guide in May 2017. Then in December that year it also rated high enough to appear in the first edition of our guide to Low Watt Tube Amps as the equal highest rated option.

It has remained on at least one of those recommended lists ever since and is currently ranking at the top in both categories.
