From Our Research Team:
The Most Versatile AC30 Ever!The AC30C2 is the most versatile AC30 in Vox history! Plug into this Custom Series guitar amp and you'll hear what we mean. Based on the classic AC30 design, the exciting new AC30C2 offers two channels — Normal and Top Boost. Claim your own "classic" sound using the Top Boost channel's treble and bass controls while tweaking the Tone Cut and Volume controls in the master section. When you balance the individual and Master volumes, you can score everything from a classic "chimey" Vox sound to an edgy overdriven tone. And we haven't even mentioned the AC30C2's onboard Reverb and Tremolo yet.
While you can definitely get those "British Invasion" tones out of the Vox AC30C2, this 30-watt, 2x12" combo puts a range of new sounds under your fingertips. Sweeten the sound using the tremolo effect, adjusting speed and depth to get your sound right where you want it. You'll also like having the warm Spring Reverb onboard to add space to your tone. The AC30C2's Reverb and Tremolo effects can be turned on and off via footswitch for convenience. And if you're a pedalboard fiend, you'll appreciate the true bypass effects loop for bringing your favorite stompboxes in and out of your tonal path.
What's the magic behind the sound of the Vox AC30C2 combo amp? The tubes, of course! The AC30C2 offers up three of the popular 12AX7 preamp tubes and makes use of four EL84 tubes in the power section to make up its 30 watts. When you want to speak with more authority, just use the 8-/16-ohm output jack to play through an external speaker jack. Doing this will mute the built-in speakers. There's even a second extension speaker jack, so you can run through a 16-ohm cabinet at the same time you use the internal speakers. And speaking of speakers, the AC30C2 features a duo of 12" Celestion G12M Greenbacks for that vibey '60s rock sound you know and love.

Vox AC30C2 (Black)
by Barry Steindel from Altoona, Pa.One of the best Tube Amps I have ever owned! That is a lot.

Great for Classic Rock from the 60's and 70's
Other useful tones ala REM, Tom Petty are easily obtained and sounds great with ... read more [+]D.I.Y. Pedals I have built myself from GuitarPCB to further enhance my sound scape. Reverb is lush, warm and real. Tremolo is equally stunning. A true winner and worth every penny not to mention the great Customer Service and Warranty from Sweetwater. close [-]
Vintage Tone with a Modern Amp
by Charles C Palia Jr from Lisle, IL USAI have several Vox vintage amps, but I really don't like taking them to gigs because of their fragility. So I'm doing the next best thing by bringing my new Vox AC30C2 amp! It's a great plug and play ... read more [+]amp and with a few pedals routed through the effects loop and onboard reverb and temolo I've got all the sounds I need with plenty of power to spare! Also I link the Normal and Boost channels to get a monster sound! Greenbacks are also my favorite speakers. Special thanks to Brendan Murphy, my sales rep at Sweetwater! close [-]

Great amp for the price...
by Matt from Peoria,ILSo far so good...Definitely has the Vox chime...I'm no purist, so I can't comment on how much like the originals it sounds, but it's one of the best, if not the best for what it costs. (not for metal... read more [+]) I had the Custom Classic before this and traded it off. It sounded good too, but not sure that I was a fan of the Wharfdales, when they switched to Greenbacks I was sold. I definitily think they are an improvement. Never played one with the blues, but to pay 50% more just for that option doesn't seem to make sense. It's labled as the most versatile yet, but it seemed like the CC2 had more features..but simplicity is great here. Definitely glad to have an AC30 back in my collection. Sounds great with Tele's especially if you want a Paisley ish tone. note...doesn't come with a footswitch and yes it's made in China. But I appreciate Vox not jacking up their prices 20-30% each year like Gibson/Fender...Give Brian Cravens a call at Sweetwater and he'll hook you up! close [-]
