i didn't like the one i tried, i thought it sounded very harsh. The one i tried was second-hand, though, so may have been faulty or may have had old tubes, so i dunno, but if the one i tried was indicative of what they sound like, i'd avoid them. what's your budget, and what country are you in (that'll affect prices and availability)?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

i'm in canada, umm around 1K canadian....... i have a few other amps but looking for that vox \hiwatt saturated drive

when i hear someone say classic VOX...i think AC30. The AC15 doesn't really sound anything like the AC30 IMO. Its a decent amp...the cleans were OK...just not as chimey as its brothers. The drive was pretty sterile on it too, but an OD pedal did wanders for the amp.

k...

if you're in canada it might be worth trying out a few traynors, they're made there and as such are pretty good value (whereas here in the UK they're pretty expensive ). From what i can remember, the ycv20 was pretty voxy, it's bound to be worth a try to see if it gets close enough for you. if you see any of the other ycvs you might as well try them too, just in case you like them more (the 40 is more fendery, and the 50 is allegedly marshally, though i haven't tried it).

the Night Train is similar to the AC15...I think the cleans are a bit better. The OD is kind of muddy...not nearly as muddy as the Tiny Terror though.

vox might be worth a try (i haven't tried it, yet). Not sure about the TT, it sounds more like an orange. worth a try if you can find one, but don't get your hopes up. also try the traynor ycv20, as i mentioned earlier.

I hated my AC15 CC1X with a passion, it sounded way to harsh and shrill, so I got rid of it. But yh the Traynor's would be worth a look.

The problem with the CC1 is the speaker. They can really accentuate the high end of the AC15 so when you crank it up, it ends up sounding harsh. That and the Custom Classic are a little difficult to work on and accessing the tubes for retubing is a chore.

You can get really nice rock tones out of the Custom Classic series, but it requires a lot of volume (or nice pedals) and a decent speaker.

I had the Celestion Alnico Blue in my AC15 and it still sounded horrible.
