The Vox AC15H1TV from the Hardwired Heritage Series combines the EF86 preamp channel of 1958 with the 1963 Top Boost channel and blasts the signal through a single 12” Celestial Blue Alnico speaker, with the result being one incredible sounding and very versatile amplifier. Vox calls it “Perhaps the finest Vox amplifier in the company’s 50 year history”. No exaggeration. I have tested this alongside a 1964 AC-30 and was just like comparing one speaker with two.

Channel I is the EF86 preamp channel with two inputs, volume control, a three-position brilliance switch that selects between three presets (flat response, top end boost, bass cut). There is also a ‘Bass Shift’ switch to tighten up the bass response, and the ‘EF86 Mode’ switch which reconfigures the EF86 valve from pentode mode to triode mode. The ‘Triode’ setting gives lower gain with higher headroom, while the ‘Pentode’ setting will give a sweet high-gain tone without as much headroom.

Channel II takes the 12-AX7 based Top Boost circuit from the 1960s AC-30 with two inputs, volume, treble, and bass controls.

Also featured is the Top Cut control which cuts out the high end and is common to both channels.

The O/P Mode switch is used to change the configuration of the two EL84 valves for 15W output in pentode mode to 7.5W in triode mode.

If you want the real vintage Vox sound for a fraction of the cost of a real 60s Vox, this is the amp for you.
