About the Vox AC15C1 amplifier:
The Vox AC15C1 amp was first introduced in 1958. Yet, amazingly this amp was the best selling amp of 2016 (source: Reverb).

Drawing on more than 50 years of amp-building expertise, the AC15C1 Custom Series offers an incredible tonal range.
The updated model range includes:

The Vox AC15 C1 amp is about as versatile as a tube amp of this sort can be. So you can get classic Vox clean tones and some great distortion out of it at reasonable volumes. The reverb sounds lovely as does the built-in tremolo. However, note there is no effects loop on the Vox AC15 C1, nor a headphone jack. The amp has two inputs, one for the normal channel and one for the top-boost channel, which obviously boosts the high-end of the signal.
The top-boost channel has a responsive EQ with treble and bass, though the normal channel does not. Finally, there’s a knob called Tone Cut. So this will increase or decrease the higher frequencies depending on the setting.
