The AC-15HW1 is without doubt the finest hand wired amp produced by Vox since the 1960s. The quality of the hand wiring is impeccable. The factory cabinet is constructed of birch plywood and of the highest quality.

Many have told me that they love the amplifier but they are not fond of the fawn vinyl Vox used to cover the cabinet. Some have indicated that they would prefer the amp in "1964 cosmetics." This would require that the amp be covered in traditional black basket weave vinyl and brown diamond Vox grill.

We decided to address these concerns by producing a limited edition version of the AC15HW1 using an all new cabinet built by North Coast Music. We start by taking the chassis and speaker out of the fawn factory cabinet. The original cabinet is then offered in the Closeout area of our web site. North Coast Music then builds a new AC15HW1 cabinet from scratch.

Our AC15HW1 cabinet is hand made at North Coast Music from 3/4" 13 ply baltic birch and features locking half lap joints, original style basket weave vinyl, brown Vox diamond grill, one pin Vox corners (front of amp), two-pin Vox corners (rear of amp), two vents and a Vox handle.

This cabinet itself is not (and will never be) offered separately. It will only be offered as a package with the purchase of a complete AC15HW1 amplifier at North Coast Music.

The AC15HW1 is a two channel amp. Channel one is the "Normal" channel, and has two inputs and a "Bright" switch. Channel two is the "Top Boost" channel and has dual inputs, volume, treble, and bass controls, and a "Hot/Cool" switch. Using the "Hot" position on this switch increases the gain of the amp. This gain boost may also be remotely actuated using the single button VFS-1 foot switch, an included accessory with the amplifier.

This amp does not have tremolo or reverb.

Features:
  • Fitted with matched Ruby Tubes for extended dynamic range
  • Three 12AX7, two EL84, and one EZ81
  • Two channel design, Top Boost and Normal channels
  • Bright switch on Normal channel for increased brilliance
  • Hot/Cool switch on Top Boost channel for increased foot switchable gain
  • Master Volume Control bypass switch
  • OP mode switch cuts the output power level of the amp from 15 to 7.5 watts
