Designed to impart that classic VOX tube-tone upon your electric guitar, the AC15HW1X is a 15W RMS combo amplifier sporting a 1x12" Celestion Alnico Blue speaker. The unit boasts a full tube complement—three preamp tubes, two power-amp tubes, and rectifier tube—while its front panel offers you two independent channels, with each channel providing both high and low input jacks. This gives you a total of four ways of plugging into the amp. Also, each element of the turret board has been hand-wired to ensure the most efficient signal path.
A Tone Cut control across the power-amp section affords you a generalized way of tweaking the high end in your guitar signal; however, for further fine-tuning of EQ, plug into the Top Boost channel, which offers Bass, Treble, and a Hot/Cool switch—a handy feature which partially bypasses the tone controls to provide more gain and a purer signal path. As this Hot/Cool switch can be toggled via an independent footswitch, this feature can be utilized to give you some more juice for lead parts and soloing.
Turn your attention to the back of the amplifier and you'll see two external speaker output jacks wired for 16 Ohms, though, depending on the speaker configuration you're using, they can be switched for 8 Ohms as well. You'll also notice a footswitch input which allows you to control the Hot/Cool switch with the tap of your toes. The footswitch, a power cable, and a dust cover are included with your purchase.
