This thing is huge! If you're looking for a home practice amp this certainly won't be suitable. It's tremendously loud and could be used in many medium to large sized venues.

It's super heavy, almost 4 stone! The handles seems sturdy enough but it's too early to tell. At this point though the quality seems good enough to last a good while.

The good thing about this amp is the master volume. In previous AC30's the only way to get a good warm distortion was to crank the volume up full meaning to have a nice tone you had to deafen your bandmates - not any more! Now you can crank up the volume for the tone, and control the overall master with the master section. Another cool feature is the spring reverb which is super sweet. Also the tremelo is a nice touch and sounds crisp even if I don't use it much myself.

The sound it legendary. It's a powerhouse and sounds so warm you wouldn't believe. Despite it being an old design this amp is suitable for hundreds of genres too - from blues, to rock, to pop, to metal, this amp could do it all!

Amazing buy and I'm glad to be a proud owner of an AC30. No complaints, simply awesome.

A Powerhouse of an amp!

This amp certainly lives up to its reputation. Despite its 30 watts, it's powerful enough to gig in reasonable size venues without distorting, via the 2 x 12" Celestion Greenbacks. Should you wish to run it through a sound desk, using a speaker emulator (TAD F.A.N.T.A.) and connecting via the external speaker jack socket, this can be achieved perfectly; however, using this socket mutes the cabinet speakers, so you'll need a good foldback signal to hear what you're playing! Using the extension speaker socket leaves the cabinet speakers connected. All in all, a great amp, well built, robust, great looking - and heavy!! I do recommend that you buy a cover (Rockbag?) to give it some protection.

This is got everything what you need

I tryed couple of amps and this one was my dream. I think you don't need to search for some amps from 65 etc. this amp have got everything from past plus lot of new things. Amps is very personal thing to choose as guitarist but this should try everyone because it's so much universal! I'm extremely happy I've got this one at home!

great amp

Great amp got from Thomann for a very bargain price. Thanks to you lads.
Very heavy box but with the two side handles you can hire second creature to make it easier. Great features like tremolo, reverb, master volume. I was testing/ listening so many amps and this is the sound that fits my ears. The only downside are the stock tubes. Main V1 Ruby 12ax7 very very muddy with flabbiness through my Les Paul in Normal channel. Top Boost channel has EQ bass and treble and even with the Chinese V2 12ax7b tube can be adjusted to find your own tone. Power tubes Chinese Shuguang rattling as in hell. First when recording at home though amp is faulty but after studying many websides I discovered this is common Combo issue especially AC30 which is called torture chamber for tubes. I found the way out either buy good quality damper rings/ instruments and keep existing tubes or buy specially dedicated power tubes for VOX AC30 which have rugged construction and are resistant to bigger heat and vibrations. With Strat/Tele you might not get as huge rattling like with Les Paul but you can only hear it while playing at reasonable volumes on some notes but it is very annoying and you really hear while playing. When playing loud on rehearsal with drum kit to loud to hear it.
But when you sort that it sounds like a beauty beast and it is louder than many 50-60W tube amps. Other good thing is that you do not have to rebias the amp after changing tubes so you are saving the visit to tech guy. With this amp the master volume works for great I mean it is not like i many Fender/Marshall amps that when you up to volume level 2-3 you see the difference in loudness and after that it you need to put earplugs. With this amp loudness increases gradually.

Clear bright sound

It has a nice clear bright sound - very loud from 30 watts huh!!!! - and it is very good, useful for concerts - strong sound with my Duesenberg Starplayer and my Telecaster too. For my Stratocaster my Mesa Nomad is better, more smooth. I miss a littlebit some more tone options / no mid potmeter/ but with some practice You can get what You want from it. The sound has a llittle metallic taste. For everyday use I recommend this reliable workhorse. Only problem is, it's a bit heavy for carrying - better for two persons than one.
In a studio situation I do recommend this for funk kinda rhythmic playing and in clean circumstances but not that really for solos in noisy environment.
