The AC15TBX was produced by Marshall under contract to Vox from 1995 through 2003. It featured a true class "A" power amplifier section and a single 12" Celestion G12 "VOX Blue" alnico speaker. This amplifier was also offered with a single 12" "standard" speaker (AC15TB) or with twin 10" speakers (AC15TB2). The speakers in either of these amps were manufactured by Eminence.

The picture at left tells an interesting and little known story about the AC15TBX. Originally, Korg also planned to have this amplifier manufactured in the US by Bedrock Amplification. The early Vox publicity photo of this amp at left shows the original Bedrock prototype AC15TBX. Notice the leather handle and the slim air vents, both Bedrock cosmetic touches.

The AC15TB Series amps featured both a channel and a master volume control.

The amp also featured reverb and tremolo, both controllable by a remote foot switch.

The control panel was semi gloss black with gold silk screened nomenclature.

In the end, Marshall produced the amp for Vox using a design similar to the Bedrock prototype.
