Hassle free, browsed at my leisure, help and advise when I wanted it. They were happy for me to try several instruments. Settled on a Taylor 114e with which I am more than pleased. Would recommend you visit, great selection of instruments. One gripe but a small one, two instruments on the web site showed as in stock and were in fact out of stock.

Overview

The VOX AC15HW1 Hand-Wired Series is a true all-tube amplifier, employing vacuum tubes in the preamp, power amp, and rectifier. This is a bigger and more "deluxe" version of the classic Vox Ac15, with beautiful vintage-style tolex and packed with extra new features - besides being bigger. Thanks to its larger cab, the AC15HW1 sounds "fuller" than a conventional AC15.

The preamp uses three classic ECC83/12AX7 tubes. The power stage uses either a duet of EL84 tubes. The VOX Hand Wired Series use a tube rectifier. The AC15 models feature a EZ81 rectifier tube.

These three elements, when combined, provide the vibrant, organic and unmistakable tone that is the heart of the classic VOX sound. The VOX Hand-Wired Series preserves the traditional VOX two-channel design, providing a Top Boost channel and a Normal channel. True to form, the Top Boost channel delivers the legendary AC30 sound with a fully interactive tone stack.

VOX has also added a new and unique HOT/COOL switch. The COOL setting produces the orthodox Top Boost sound, while the HOT setting bypasses the tone circuitry altogether to create a more pure sound to achieve richer gain. A VFS1 footswitch is included with your VOX Hand-Wired Series amp, so you can quickly change between COOL and HOT, right at those moments when you need an extra dose of drive.

The controls for the Normal channel consist simply of a volume knob, giving you a cleaner and more natural tube sound. In addition, this channel offers a BRIGHT switch that, when engaged, adds emphasis to the upper harmonics of the tone.
