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, 2 x 12" 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.

  • 30-watt, 2 x 12" combo guitar amplifier
  • 2 channels with independent volume controls - normal and top boost

A Legend

To rate this amp at less than 5 stars would be obtuse to say the least. The value or worth of this amp has nothing to do with it`s price. This amp has been recorded on more songs than a human can count. It has been on more stages all over the world than you could imagine. The Vox AC30 and AC15 are two of the best guitar amplifiers ever produced. To begin, the tone of this amp, which is the most important attribute, is rich and full but also versatile. You can get deep lows and fat sounds, full and rich, for those who seek such, or pitchy tones suited for the country picker, or anything in between. It can give you huge headroom or you can dial in some fat overdriven tones. With the "Tone Cut" pot you can really dial in to whatever tones you want. The 4 different inputs allow for 4 individual levels as well. And the fact that you can jump channels makes for a hot rodded sound that can give you saturation or overdriven tones to suit those high gain situations. The Reverb is top of the line, no digital garbage but rich and lush reverb. The Tremolo is second to none as well and in my opinion as good as even those vintage Fender amps. The speakers are Greenbacks which are also the speakers which have been used in more recordings than you could count. These speakers are capable of pure cleans or the dirtiest of distortions which is why you find them in all sorts of amplifier cabinets including Marshalls. The level of volume can be low enough for the bedroom, thanks to a master volume, or loud enough for a 300 seat venue without even using a mic. I`m not biased when it comes to musical equipment but a spade is a spade. I have owned two of these amps and a Hand wired version, as well as Fender Twins, Deluxes, Supers, Mesa Boogie`s Mark 2 B, Heartbreakers, etc.etc.etc. The Vox AC30 is an awesome amplifier that is well suited to perform a wide variety of music genres. There is really nothing negative to state about this amp. In our day and age we have more choices than we really need and of course there are enough variations of amplifiers out there to suit anyones personal preference. But while many amps are one or two trick ponies, the Vox AC30 is a master of many tricks so to speak.

This amp is a versatile beast. There is no other sound than the sound of this Vox and all of it's variations. Coming back to this tube amp after playing through solid state half stacks, I found that it kicks their asses. I've had a great time exploring this VoxAC30C2 and cant play through it enough. It keeps me playing more and working on different styles. It's just amazing. Chris Carter is my Sales Tech and I get the Red Carpet each time I order. Sweetwater is more user freindly than the local brick and mortar music stores.

Every man's dream - Chris Carter is a great Sales Engineer

I just got my Vox AC30C2 in the mail. That is just 36 hours from when I ordered until it got to my door (Indiana- Massachusetts). This amp is everything I ever dreamed of or wanted. I have an interest in the whole Vox/ Epiphone 60s sound and every other sound that comes out. My Sales Engineer is Chris Carter who has taken care of my needs and orders several times and always makes sure that everything is perfect. If he is the standard of Sweetwater, thats a pretty high standard to meet.

vox ac30c2

the best guitar amp for me to date!!!

Very pleased

This amp sounds great, lots of clean headroom. If you strike the strong hard, you get a loud attack, if you keep it soft and don't accent the strums it sounds nice and warm. Using it with a ton of reverb and delay, it handles them very well. My sales engineer Devin was great at helping me get an awesome price on this amp. I'll definitely be coming back for some more gear soon!
