This amp was introduced a few years ago to commemorate the 50th years of business the Vox company has been in business. hey have been building great amps for guitarist for generations now. So to celebrate this accomplishment they decided to produce this amp and cabinet together as a throw back to the good old days of Vox Ac30 tone.

This amp is a all hardwired amp from start to finish. It has two channels. The first channel is the EF86 Preamp channel and it has two inputs with 6db of volume difference between them. The second channel is the top boost channel and modeled off of the 1963 circuit.

The biggest users of the amp is the Edge and Brian May. This amp is more used for country, blues, and mild rock tones. Not this particular amp model but the Vox AC30 in general. The best thing about Vox Ac30 is their ability to take pedal extremely well. You can throw just about any pedal in front of the amp and it just accepts the tone from the pedal and blends it with the Vox darker amp character that is present in its voicing.

I like to use a Strat with this amp as I'm a big fan of the Edge and his Strat is very recognizable in the songs I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For and Bullet The Blue Sky. A Les Paul works quite well with this amp. You get a great blues rock tone that is extremely warm and smooth in tone.


These amps were for a limited time and now have been discontinued. You can find them on the used market from time to time. I have seen the, before in the classifieds and on ebay quite frequently If you need a well built combo amp and are playing anything from country to mild rock then this might be an amp for you. If you use overdrive or effects pedals frequently then this is just about the best amp you could use effects with.
