A great production of a classic amp
Callum M. 11.12.2014
This amp is incredibly versatile, whether you are looking for the classic British invasion tone or a starting point to develop your own sound this amp is a great choice. It takes pedals exceptionally well, has a smooth yet chimey clean sound and breaks up really well on both normal and top boost channels (you can jump these channels with a patch cable for extra grit). The master volume is a nice inclusion for quieter practicing though the natural speaker compression occurs only at loud volumes. The master section also includes a tone cut, which is useful for bright guitars (almost a necessity for a single coil strat on anything other than neck pickup). The classic vox tremolo sounds great and the reverb has a tone knob for more versatility. The alnico blue speakers are the only real option for that quintessentially AC30 sound, though don't be afraid to try other combinations using the external and extension speaker outputs - I've had great success with a homemade 1x12 cabinet containing a celestion creamback.

Sound mit Kultstatus!
Sigi 17.11.2009
Mit dem VOX AC30CC2X hab ich meinen Traum-Sound gefunden. Es gibt keinen geileren Clean-Sound und vor allem im Crunch-Bereich ist der Amp unschlagbar. Für Hi-Gain Verzerrung braucht man allerdings einen Bodentreter. Mit diesen harmoniert der Amp allerdings auch perfekt. Selbst bei billigen Verzerrertretern kommt der Röhrensound astrein rüber. Empfehlenswert ist es hier allerdings den Master so weit wie möglich aufzudrehen und das Volume nur ganz wenig auf. So kommen Bodentreter am besten zur Geltung.

Einige Macken hat der AC30 allerdings auch. So hat sich bei mir nach kurzer Zeit die Gleichrichterröhre verabschiedet und vorher gab es immer wieder durchgebrannte Sicherungen. Grund dafür war der Standbyschalter, der bei diesem Amp angeblich völlig unnötig ist. In diversen Foren kann man von Technikern lesen, dass beim AC30 der Standby-Schalter IMMER eingeschaltet sein soll. Warum genau, ist in diversen Foren nachzulesen.

Seitdem ich den Standby immer eingeschaltet lasse muckt auch die Gleichrichter-Röhre nicht mehr! Den Amp geb ich nie wieder her.

Très versatile, son chaud à lampes. Le seul reproche, un peu lourd.
