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.

Perfect Vox tone.

What is your opinion of this product?
This is an amazing amp. I mainly run Gibson’s with humbuckers, and one with P-90’s. Both channels are great. I run mine with both channels jumped, and volume right at the breakup point. This thing really exceeded my expectations!

Pure Tonal Bliss!! Made My Dreams Come True!!
What is your opinion of this product?
I thought that I had died and gone to heaven!!! I plugged into the normal channel at a fairly low volume, because it was late at night, no reverb. The shimmering pure tone coming out of those alnico blue speakers literally made me cry. After all this was my dream amp and it was even more than I had imagined! And then I plugged into the Top boost channel and turned the channel volume all the way up and master to about 1 or 2, remember it was still late at night, and wow!!!!Just pure beautiful overdriven sound at a low volume! This amp does everything and more that it says it will do. I am losing sleep because I can’t stop playing it. On top of that AMS gave me a great 12 months same as cash payment plan, free 2 day delivery and no sales tax. What a great company to make my dreams come true!!! Thank You so much!!!!

! Surprise ! (IMO)
What is your opinion of this product?
The Vox AC302A produces many sounds at low to HIGH volume and the (2) 12" GB speakers are clear and clean. The Normal, Top Boost, and jumpered Normal/Top Boost chanels provide a variety of sound and the High and Low input jacks work well with humbucker and single coil pickups. Sounds great when playing a Gibson Les Paul and SG both with 57 Classics, a Fender Strat with Texas Special/Atomic Humbucker, Epiphone EL-00 w/Fishman Sonicore and other acoustics via a Dean Markley Pro Mag. Pedal friendly w/FX/bypass. 16 ohm and 8 ohm settings to use with the Internal Speaker, External Speaker, and Extension Cabinet modes. Reverb as good as any on the market in a compatible price range tube amp. Tremolo sounds as good as many available pedals. Optional Vox VFS2A foot switch is an added plus for turning the reverb and tremolo on and off. Very pleased with this amp thus far. Would suggest purchase of the optional AC30COVER. This is a thick canvas like cover with smooth interior material.

Solid Amplifier, Worth Every Cent!
What is your 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.

Very Good AC30 Version
Your general opinion of this product.
The Vox AC30C2 is a great, Vox amp for a decent price. These things do what a Vox amp is supposed to do with a few added modern features. Listen to a few Tom Petty songs, or some early Beatles records, or the countless others out there now that use Vox AC30's with great success. It's not a Fender, Marshal, or a Mesa Boogie. The main thing is the Vox sound and it's there in this amp. It is a loud amp, and for some situations, maybe too loud (bedroom practice late nights, very small church service) but it does have a Master volume so dialing in a great Vox sound at reasonably low volume is easy and I have no problem using mine at home. The China made tubes it comes with aren't terrible but upgrading the tubes is a good idea.
Seems to be very well made for an amp at the $1000. price point. Has a lot of features the older versions did not have. Nothing "cheap" about it.
It Feels Heavy! At 71 pounds it's a good thing it has the 3 sturdy lift handles across the top.
Bright, chimey Vox tones are all here plus, with the "cut" knob in the master volume, you can really fine tune and tailor your sound by further cutting the highs (post EQ) if you need to. Great reverb and Trem also!
Good looking amp.
Just got one from AMS this week so all I can say is: AMS adds one year to the factory warranty which makes me feel a little more secure, and, statistically, most consumer electronics will fail within the first 9 months, if they are going to.

Vox Goodness
Your general opinion of this product.
I'm a big Brian May tone fan and I've been using this off and on for the last 3 years. It is soooooo loud and toneful. Takes pedals great. I've gigged outdoor shows on flatbeds and you can crank it without needing a mic. Would definitely recommend a hand truck or a dolly since this amps weight isn't too friendly. If you don't care about the weight I would highly recommend this amp for anything clean, crunchy, to mild/aggressive rock.

Vox quality is the finest. Beautfuln to look at.
Your general opinion of this product.
I've been wanting this amp for a long time. So glad to finally own one. I've been through a lot of amps, but the search is over. It dosen' get any better than this.
Beatles all the way. The Alnico Blues are smooth and the chime comes alive when I'm playing my Ric 360.
Fantastic craftsmanship inside and out. I'm very proud to own this amp!
