Vox AC30C2X Custom 30W 2x12 Combo
The VOX AC30 combo amp has been an icon for decades, known as the sound that powered the 1960s' "British Invasion." Based on the classic AC30 design, the all-new Custom Series AC30C2 and AC30C2X offer numerous up-todate enhancements, delivering the most versatile AC30 design in VOX history.
VOX Custom Series amps offer two channels: Normal and Top-Boost. Each channel is equipped with its own Volume control, and the Top Boost channel offers highly interactive Treble and Bass tone controls. This powerful channel pairing provides an abundance of tone-crafting control, letting you dial in a classic sound that is all your own.
Both channels rely on the Tone Cut and Volume controls in the Master section. The Tone Cut control operates in the power stage rather than the preamp stage, allowing an additional degree of tone-shaping. The Master Volume control works in conjunction with the individual volumes of each channel to create just the right degree of gain-staging. By balancing the individual and Master volumes, the Custom Series can deliver everything from a clean VOX "chimey" sound to a powerful overdriven tone.
You can sweeten the sound of your Custom Series amplifier using the VOX Classic Tremolo effect. Both the speed and the depth are adjustable, allowing you to generate just the sound you want. A warm Spring Reverb is also included on all Custom Series amps, adding spaciousness to the sound. The AC30C2 and AC30C2X also include an additional tone control in the Reverb section. All Custom Series amps can use the VOX VFS2 footswitch, allowing you to turn the Reverb and Tremolo effects on and off as you continue to play. The AC30C2 and AC30C2X also provide an effects loop for incorporating your favourite effects into your sound. True "Bypass" switching takes the entire effect loop out of the circuit.
The AC30C2 and the AC30C2X amps make use of 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes and use 4 x EL84 tubes to deliver 30 watts of power. The AC30C2 uses two 12" Celestion G12M Greenback speakers. The AC30C2X uses two 12" Celestion Alnico Blues. All models in the Custom Series offer a switchable 8/16 ohm output jack for powering an external speaker cabinet when you need to speak with a little more authority; using this jack will mute the internal speakers. Additionally, a 2nd extension speaker jack allows you to run an extra 16 ohm cabinet along with the internal speakers for a fuller sound.

Great pedal platform - tons of clean headroom - add a bit of hair on the gain - and then hit the front end with whatever you want. Super dynamic range and tight bottom end. Enjoy. ??
Voxac30c2x Amazing service!! at GAK The Voxac30c2x with Alnico blue speakers is "my dream come true" guitar amplifier and I am very, very pleased with it, very similar sounding to the Vox ac30 I had in the sixties, but with extra features. It has taken awhile to decide on which amplifier, as I only need it for home use and a very occasional gig, I was concerned about the volume of this amp at home,but, having used it for the last three weeks I am very pleased with the choice,sound levels and tones, especially with my CS 58 Strat plugged in, Hank must be worried!!! Josh from GAK kept me informed before and when stock of a Voxac30c2x guitar amplifier arrived, I completed the order at 16:40 on a Friday and it arrived, by Fedex, at 12:20 the following day amazing service!!
It's an absolute beast of on amp
