For those who crave more power, the AC30 expands on the captivating sound of its little brother by doubling the wattage. Employing a quartet of EL84 power tubes, the AC30 Custom pumps 30 watts of remarkable tone through a pair of 12" Celestion Greenback speakers. Capable of both enchanting clean and raucous overdriven sounds, the signature chime of the AC30 Custom pairs seamlessly the intricacies of your playing style, resulting in a sound that is truly your own. Perhaps the most iconic amplifier in VOX's pedigree, the AC30 earned its place in history as the amplifier that powered the British Invasion. Since then, the AC30 has remained the choice of the world's most accomplished artists who have come to rely on its unique voice to amplify theirs.

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 make use of 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes and uses 4 x EL84 tubes to deliver 30 watts of power. The AC30C2 uses two, 12" Celestion G12M Greenback speakers. 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.

I bought this amp second hand from a store half way across the country at a ridiculously low price. it was shipped to my home town that is 3 hours away to the nearest L&M store. They said that there was a little tare in the mesh (i could not find it) also that the spring reverb did not work, they fixed the reverb for me at no extra cost. This amp works great, it is loud, clean when it needs to be and dirty when it needs. takes pedals very well, and just makes all guitars sound amazing. Im extremely impressed with the amp and also the staff at the Halifax L&M!!

Got to quickly test it two days ago and I really like it. I like hearing that it takes pedals really well to. It is very clear and nice sounding but the reverb sucks. It's not bad when low but I've tried a reverb I liked before and always trying to compare to it. I have a nice reverb pedal but when it is built in is awesome. I also love it aesthetically! I think I'm going to get one.

I've owned this amp for over 2 years and it has been great! Very loud, very crisp and takes pedals like a champ! You can play any type of music on this thing, if you have the right pedals in front of you. A nice delay and you're gonna get amazing sounds! Love it, want another one!

I have to disagree with the comments regarding this amp not being able to do metal. It may not be designed for metal, but it integrates with pedals flawlessly. I can get anything from an early 60's British invasion tone to modern high gain with the right pedals in front of it. I play in cover bands where I need a lot of tonal options and this amp is the stepping stone to everything I need.

I am very happy with this amp. The tone is ideal for classic rock, rock and blues styles. So far to me the best feature has been how much control you have over the volume and different tones the amp has. As said in other reviews though don't buy this amp if you want to play metal with it.

I have had the pleasure to use the AC30 for a year and it has been one of the best investments I have made. Very crisp and very powerful. Although, it is a little bit heavy to carry around, and this is NOT an amp for metal at all. Other than that, I highly recommend this amp
