    I realize this isn’t much of a revelation, but I just needed to share. I picked up a used but might as well be new Vox AC10 yesterday. It has the upgraded greenback Celestion. All I can say is wow. It sounds good with my other guitars, but once i plugged in the G ( even though it’s my cheapie Streamliner), I fell in love.
    What a great combo!

    Congrats and yep, I've said this several times. The AC10C1 is a real gem.

    Keep having a blast

    Gretsch and Vox is a great combination. It's the backbone of the British Invasion. I use an AC15 with my 3140, and it's the sound I've always heard in my head.

    Funny cuz I have fallen out of love with my ac15c1. It's just too finnicky of an amp for me. What sounds good one day doesn't the next. I feel like I am constantly tinkering with it.

    One the flippity-flop, my Fender Superchamp x2 I can just plug into and play.

    Odd cuz the Vox, I thought, was my dream amp. But now it's up for sale.

    Same here with the AC30cc2. Touring became a nightmare, I had to adjust on every club we played. The Vox-Rickenbacker combo, usually a match made in heaven, didn't work for me. I had to sell both.
    I bet the AC10/15 are different beasts though but since then, I'm always over cautious on Vox amps.

    Years back I had the AC30CC1, and I too was constantly tweeking all those knobs and switches, to try and get it dialed in just right.

    The AC10C1VS in not like that at all. It's one channel, top boost only, with basic tone controls and a master volume. Easy and quick to dial in, and no headache finding the tone wanted.

    Vox has released a "S1" version of the AC30, which has the same basic layout. Top boost only, and minimal controls. Not sure if there's an AC15 version yet or not.

    I'm thinking that VOX has responded to the complexity problem of getting things dialed in, and that's why the S1 is being offered.
