So fast forward to today and you see the company begin to build amps once again outside of the Vox name. These are prefect recreations of the originals and sound and look the part. These amps have such a phenomenal tone that it makes you cry to see the price thye are asking for these amps.
The chassis includes the traditional JMI red control panel, point-to-point wired circuit, three channels and six inputs (Vib/Trem, Normal, Brilliant). The control layout is as follows: Vib/Trem Speed, Vib/Trem Volume, Normal Volume, Brilliant Volume, Cut (tone). Voltage: Variable voltage selector. Available with either Blue Alnico or Celestion Green back Speakers.
As soon as you plug into a JMi amp you will immediately know the difference in the today's version of the Vox Ac30. Compared to the Vox Ac30 they are putting out now is not even fair. This amp absolutely dominates that amp in ever way possible. First of the tone is superb and the build quality is unmatched. Plus these amps are made in the UK, unlike Vox today which is made in China.
Try plugging in a Gibson Les Paul or a Rickenbacker 360 and you'll here a sound that you have been seeking all your guitar career. This tone is flat out addicting. You can sit there and play this amp for hours on end. Hook up one of there treble boosters they off er and let the Queen/Brian May riffs fly.
Other than the price these amps are spectacular. At new these amps come in at around $3699. Youch that is a high price for a combo amp. These are basically boutique quality amps so in comparison to a Bogner or a Diezel then you are in a good place.
I would recommend this amp if you are searching for the best Vox tone period. If you like boutique amps then this amp is right up your alley.
