    Have you played one? That's the only answer. Me personally I thought it was too small sounding, but maybe through a cab it would be better.

    Those are great sounding amps that do the "VOX" thing
    very well, while being small and easy to manage.

    The one I play often has the Celestion Greenback 10,
    and in no way sounds small or thin. It actually has an
    impressive amount of low-end.

    The current AC10 has a great rep. Everyone raves about the sound. I just about bought one but a used AC15C1 came up at a better price.

    You get chime for days. That Beatles clean sound. The distortion is a love it or hate it thing. Personally I love it. Overall Vox really is a unique sound that you can't get from any other brand. Fills in the tone palette that Fender and Marshall can't do.

    They do have a good sound, I was comparing it to an AC15 and AC30 I used to own, but if a small package is the goal the AC10 is it.

    The Vox will bring a different flavor for sure. It will give a bright, chimy clean to contrast with the darker clean of the Fender. Are you playing out, playing in, or recording?

    I played an AC10 a few weeks ago at GC.

    I love it, will get one at some point.

    On the wrong side of the tracks.
    Once you have TT, you don't need the vox.

    Cheers,would you say they are similar in sound?I once read the TT was based on an AD30,which was apparantly based on a vox,like I say the TT does the 60s chime clean thing very well,think I put an at7 in there,maybe a 5751 too,might be that
