Product Description

The VOX AC30C2 combo amp offer numerous up-to-date enhancements, delivering the most versatile AC30 design in VOX history. Featuring two models that are 30 watts with 2x12 speaker configuration and effects loop, the only difference are the speakers. The AC30C2 has Celestion G12M Greenback Speakers while the AC30C2X has Celestion Alnico Blue Speakers.

An Evolution in Tone
VOX Custom Series amps offer two channels: Normal and Top-Boost. Each channel is equipped with its own Volume control, and the Top Boost channel offers highly interactive Treble and Bass tone controls. This powerful channel pairing provides an abundance of tone-crafting control, letting you dial in a classic sound that is all your own.

Both channels rely on the Tone Cut and Volume controls in the Master section. The Tone Cut control operates in the power stage rather than the preamp stage, allowing an additional degree of tone-shaping. The Master Volume control works in conjunction with the individual volumes of each channel to create just the right degree of gain-staging. By balancing the individual and Master volumes, the Custom Series can deliver everything from a clean VOX chimey sound to a powerful overdriven tone.

Sound in Motion
You can sweeten the sound of your Custom Series amplifier using the VOX Classic Tremolo effect. Both the speed and the depth are adjustable, allowing you to generate just the sound you want. A warm Spring Reverb is also included on all Custom Series amps, adding spaciousness to the sound. The AC30C2 and AC30C2X also include an additional tone control in the Reverb section. All Custom Series amps can use the VOX VFS2 footswitch, allowing you to turn the Reverb and Tremolo effects on and off as you continue to play. The AC30C2 and AC30C2X also provide an effects loop for incorporating your favourite effects into your sound. True Bypass switching takes the entire effect loop out of the circuit.

Power Sharing
The AC30C2 and the AC30C2X amps make use of 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes and use 4 x EL84 tubes to deliver 30 watts of power. The AC30C2 uses two 12 inch Celestion G12M Greenback speakers. The AC30C2X uses two 12 inch Celestion Alnico Blues. All models in the Custom Series offer a switchable 8/16 ohm output jack for powering an external speaker cabinet when you need to speak with a little more authority; using this jack will mute the internal speakers. Additionally, a 2nd extension speaker jack allows you to run an extra 16 ohm cabinet along with the internal speakers for a fuller sound.

What is your overall opinion of this product?
I was concerned that Vox had changed the AC30 so much that it wouldn't sound like the an AC30. I am happy to say, it's still great! They added features that make it usable in more situations, but it still has the AC30 tone. The chime, and harmonic content are all in there. It will still sound best if you run the master volume on ten, and use the channel volumes, but that isn't always practical. It still sounds fantastic with the master turned down. Lots of gain on the Top Boost channel, and you can link the channels for more tonal options. It's excellent for an "old school" player, like myself, who likes to use the volume on the guitar. It handles pedals very well, and the bypassable effects loop works very well. The only thing I recommend, is to change the tubes. It ships with Chinese tubes, and while it doesn't sound bad with the stock tubes, it sounds MUCH better with a good set of tubes in it. Tung Sol EL84s sound best to me, but the choice is yours.
