I pulled the trigger on the Vox trade and... yes, please.
Within minutes of getting it home and plugging it in, I was able to dial up both, a decent clean and a nice dirty, greasy growl - with just my Custom 24. It does sound very British, and I dig that.
This is absolutely not the 5150 that sits in my other office corner and I wanted something different, just not as different as the DeVille was, I guess. I still want some dirt.
The other guy fell in love with the Fender DeVille his buddy had and said he's been hunting one for a while. We both drove a couple hours and were happy we had.
Now... experimentation! Thanks everyone who offered information and insight.
This is a Vox AC15 C1.
Congrats man my buddy has one of those and I think it sounds great.
