Been looking for a new amp. I wanted to step it up a notch (or a few) from my cube/champ. Decided on an AC15C1. $599 new. Couldn't get any used cause the C1 just came out the beginning of this year, and they're a big improvement on the CC1.

Tubes, 12AX7s and EL84s.




Been breakin' her in, sounding greatttt. Loving the cleans as much as I'm loving the dirty. The master volume reallly is a treat, and the reverb is realllly nice as well. So far the tubes are holding up, and I've ordered the parts and enclosure for a footswitch that I'll just be making myself. : D

looks awesome. I've been thinking about getting one if I can get the money. How loud can it get? If mic'd, do you think there would be enough headroom to play it at a small rock gig? Would it sound decent?

yeah, it's loud enough for gigging if setup right, and yes it will sound decent.

Yeah if you have it mic'd, and depending of course on your drummer etc. Also, if you need more loudness there's always the ability to add an extension or run to an external cab. Although if you intend on getting nice cleans out of it in a gig setting, I think you'd probably find it difficult getting loud enough without getting some breakup which you may or may not want.

But yeah, it's sounding pretty nice as it is now, I haven't fiddled with tubes yet. A lot of sources report a much better sound with new ones. Also, if you do go for it, make sure it's a Custom not a Custom classic as all the shops might not have switched yet. The C1 is a much better buy than the CC1, even if for the speaker alone! (Greenback vs. a wharfdale)

Nice! Could you make some soundclips?

Yeah I'll try and get you some clips with and without that TS. Right now I'm running the TS when I get a nice clean, and have the overdrive knob all the way at zero and level at max. It pushes it quite nicely there and I get a nice sounding breakup. When I add the TS under an already overdriven sound, it has much less of an effect and mostly shapes the tone to whatever I have the level and tone knob with. It's really interesting.

so when you make the footswitch, will it run into the back of the amp or will it be a switcher between both inputs?


I always thought that if you have a jack in both inputs it will just "normalize" them or something. Maybe only certain amps though, I'm not sure.

It must be nice having a Greenback in there as opposed to the Wharfedales in the CC1s

The channel isn't footswitchable normally, so I'm essentially making an A/B switcher with the footswitch electronics built in as well. You can run both channels at the same time, but I haven't tried that yet. (It gives interesting opportunities with a stereo chorus for example or having two effects chains and using a volume pedal to control one channel, etc..). So the enclosure will have one mono input (guitar in), two mono outs (the guitar/channel outs) and one stereo in/out (for the rear footswitch controlling reverb and trem)


i'll post a review once I get some more time with it. For sure, and clips of course. Don't worry! haha.
