The Vox AC15 CC1 amplifier uses 1 x ECC83 (also called 12AX7) preamp valve, 1 x Balanced ECC83 for the phase splitter position (V2) and 2 x EL84 matched power valves/power tubes.
Over time your valves will lose their tone and their power. So a brand new set of JJ valves will get your amp sounding better than ever. We always recommend JJ valves for this amplifier. This is because they guarantee you get awesome tone and long life and they don’t cost a fortune.
Remember, JJ is one of only five valve manufacturers in the world. So don’t pay higher prices for valves from the same factory that have simply been rebranded by other companies.
So restore the tone, the power and the sparkle to your guitar amplifier. Treat yourself to a brand new set of valves today.

About the amp:
This amp was built between 2004 and 2009. It was first introduced to the US market and the entire CC series was produced to replace the AC15TB models that had been made for Vox by Marshall. I know! Production of the TB series was ended in 2004.
The AC215 CC1 had one 16-ohm 12″ Vox Wharfedale speaker which had been designed to emulate the famous Green Backed speaker that Vox had used for 20 years from the 1970s.
Note, the CC1X was identical to the CC1 except that is had a Vox Alnico Blue speaker manufactured by Celestion.
