Absolutely amazing amp

09.02.2017
At first I was looking for an all valve amp but i became interested in hybrid amps because the vox specifically had just what I needed in terms of effects and tone without being too expensive so I went with the vox av30.
The quality is nice and the amp itself is quite pleasent to look at. At first I could only play it at bedroom volumes in an apartement so I wasn't all that impressed even though it certaintly sounded better than my old 20 watt solid state. But when I took it to jam with my band it sounded absolutely amazing. The cleans stay clean up to a relatively high volume and the overdrive tones are sweet aswell.
The small switches in the preamp and power amp section is a huge help aswell with a clear difference when you switch from bright to fat.
The speaker honestly sounds like a 12 inch one and it is definitely loud enough to jam with a drummer.

All in all I love this amp and have played it for about 6 months now and I also use it for recording.

A great organic !!

Chris-UndergrounD, 03.08.2016
It is an all analog amp with a particularity, it is hybrid! It has 2 lamps, a 12AX7 lamp in the preamp and a 12AX7 lamp in power. This kind of amp is very rare, and I love it because the sound is excellent and very organic.

We have 8 analog sounds, 2 clean sounds (Bassman / Twin style), 2 crunch sounds (AC15 / AC30 Top boost style), 2 very muscular overdrives (Plexi / JCM style) and 2 high-gain sounds (style 5150 / Mesa). Moreover this amp has 2 channels which allow us several possibilities, each channel has its own 3 band EQ (bass / mid / treble) and also its gain and its volume. And finally a very useful general master volume that has a wide amplitude and therefore an extraordinary volume reserve.
The sounds are very convincing and warm, I am very satisfied, we are very far from the sound transistor standard.

This amp also has 3 built-in effects (chorus / delay / reverb) that can be adjusted briefly with a single button for this, the length-intensity of the reverb, the delay time but not the intensity, and the chorus Speed ??and intensity at the same time, the sound of the integrated effects is correct, it troubles but the amp also has an effect loop to connect more pro pedals. If you like playing with a lot of gain on your distortion channel, I advise you to connect a good noise gate in the effect loop in order to silent this amp because the big distortion on this amp created a little breath. Apart from this amp and very "pedal-friendly" it cash any type of pedal, it's great!

Then we have 4 switches placed on the side of the lamps, which change the overall rendering, it is very well seen and very versatile, basically we go from a vintage sound to a modern sound and we can also add or remove treble according to The position of the Bright switch and the same for the Fat switch but for the bass.

Finally you can connect an external baffle (4/8/16 ohms) but it cuts the internal HP via the jack provided on the back.

The On-Off switch is special, it is a rocker and must be pressed up to turn it on and down to turn it off but you will not necessarily need it as it turns off by itself At the end of an hour without signal at the entrance (very practical and ecological).

It is equipped with a 10-inch HP but it sounds warm and ample, the acoustic part is very neat. And finally the look is sumptuous and very classy. Congratulations VOX.

If you like crystal clear sounds and distortion oily I recommend this amp, you can go there with your eyes closed! I would do this again without hesitation! Thanks Thomann.
