It will be loud enough.
Clean headroom may be a struggle - but it shouldn't as I hear Vox's are uberly loud.

It's quite loud but you won't be getting the best sounding break up. If you like that 'Kinks' kind of break up, it's pretty killer but I can't really stand it.

Its pretty loud from my experience, although that was with a hybrid model.

There isn't a hybrid model of the AC15? It's a valve amp.
Fender USA Telecaster
Laney VC30-210
Vox Wah
That's it :|

^That's a good deal more expensive...


Foo Fighters!! Why are you looking at this amp?

I ask because I don't really think it's a good amp, for how much you're paying. Poor value. It doesn't sound like a smaller AC30, either. Not worth it, IMO.

I'd get a different amp, there's plenty of other options in that price range.

That's got nothing to do with the AC15 though...

hey cheers. would it be good if i put a od pedal on it?


An OD won't really change much. Go out and try the amp and see if you like it.


Check out the Crate Palomino V-32. I personally think it sounds better, more wattage and it's a dual channel amp too.

I think that the AC15s are awesome amps in a quirky way but you might wanna look into other amps first. And I'm gonna say that it might not be loud enough clean, I often find myself wishing for more clean headroom and I have an AC30 and a 4x12 cab.

It'll be real loud once you push it past its break-up point though.

btw, what tones are you going for?

#17
Laney VC30?
Combined with a good OD it can go into hard rock/early metal - such as Guns N Roses and Foo Fighter.

I bought a used AC30CC1 for a lot less than the cost of a new AC15CC1. Deals are out there. If you're really stuck on buying new, maybe take a look at what Laney has to offer in the 15-30W range. Nice amps for a lot less (in the UK).

You Don't Need 100W.

i gig with my ac15cc1, and it is plenty loud. i compare it to american made 30 watters easily. an od pedal on top of its top boost is essential if you want more gain since this is not a gainy amp by any means. i recommend the ts-9. so yes its not a smaller version of the ac30, obviously. but its still a killer amp. over priced? thats subjective. its all up to what you think is worth spending X amount of cash. to me, it was worth every penny. i got a great sounding amp that was very basic with 2 analog effects and plenty loud to play gigs in places i would not be mic'ing. get it! its still a vox!!!

Really? They're quite expensive in the UK, for what they offer. I'd be more inclined to get a Laney VC30, with an OD pedal.


Yeah, I own VC-30 and a TS-808. Can handle anything and is a great price. I really recommend them and Laney have great customer service so you can be assured that you have an amp that will last you a long time
