even better then the real thing

actarus, 10.03.2018
I used to play guitar in a U2 tribute band for decades, always being very picky on guitar tone, and trying lots of different amps and configurations. Well, I finally settled down to a ultimate, definitive set up with a vox ac30 and its perfect companion: this awesome fender deluxe reissue.

It has two input channels, mic and instruments, each with low and high impedance inputs. Very spartan controls, limited to mic anc instrument volume and one single tone control, affecting just the instrument channel. The two channels volumes interact a little bit with each other. Even if the inputs are not jumpered together the mic volume adds up a bit to the instrument channel volume.

internal construction is flawless and, of course, feature point-to-point circuit components hand made soldering.

there is no reverb unit and no loopback connection support, just as in the original '50s amp. But you won't miss them.

PRO
- this is amp has tons of sparkling clean, tube-sounding volume, despite its only 12 watt rating. It's at least as loud as a cranked AC15, if not louder. I often bring it as my only amp with my band even in open air venues and never experienced lack of loudness.

-internally tweaked to comply to The Edge's own original specs, it is actually better sounding than the original one, to my taste, with its fuller and chimey UK made celestion alnico blue speaker.

-it is made of very light and resonant wood, weighting less than 12kg. Size is also perfect: slightly smaller than a deville, slightly bigger than a blues junior. That enables you to easily carry up the amp in one hand for days without being tired, and at the same time makes it also capable of rendering a stunningly tight and loud bottom end: pairing it with a high end guitar is reccomended: you will be finally able to hear its full voice.

-very robust and reliable: not any issue in two years on the road gigging with it.


CONS
yes, it is expensive but really worthwile the quality you get: once you buy this you are free from GAS for other amps for the rest of your life.

mic input which is just mach less trebly than the instrument input, which is a designed feature, but this makes it not really useful to me. I think it is there just to comply with original deluxe specs.

bottom line:
Owned for about two years now. If you are looking for emulating Edge's tone, specifically in his more recent vinyls, then your search ended HERE.

Excellent

Paja, 13.02.2018
Even with a small size and only 12W is it amazing? a strong apparatus, on the stage of hunting for a volume of shit between 1 and 2, where the same strong sound passes in the beautiful? naked. A huge advantage is the low weight and the small size, while maintaining a great tone. And if you are a fan of U2, you have to turn it fully, play the riff Vertigo and it is decided. The price is multiple? not much like Blues Junior, but that's the same difference as between Squier and Fender Custom shop.
