mooseherman's review"Interesting update on the AC30"

Vox AC30CC2
This amplifier is a recreation of Vox's celebrated AC30 amplifier, a legendary amp in some circles. There are also a few new features. There is 1/4" input as well as an effects loop, which is a new feature. It is a tube amp with 30 watts (hence the name). There are switches for output biasing and clip controls, which are really new features and can really help problematic amps find their sweet spots. There are two channels, normal and top boost, as well as the ability to blend the channels which is really something. There are also EQs, tremolo and reverb. The tremolo and reverb can be controlled by footswitch.

UTILIZATION

Getting a good sound out of this amp is easy, however, if you want a truly phenomenal sound, replace the tubes, as they come from China now, and China makes cheap products almost exclusively. The one complaint I would make is the inability to switch channels with the footswitch. This limits the features of the amp, however, I tend to find the sound I like and stick with that and I mostly haven't had too many problems. The manual explains very clearly what each function does and how to use it, it's very useful.

SOUNDS

I like to use this amp with a wide variety of guitars, as they each have their own unique flavor combined with this amp. I think that the sounds that come out of this amp are phenomenal. Both channels have their flavors, but I think that the channel blending feature really gives this amp its best sound, as it combines the high end of the top boost channel with the warmth of the normal. When in this mode, tone is entirely up to the player, as one can go from a clean warm sound to an overdriven bark instantly. The dynamic response of this amp is extraordinary. I think better tubes and pots will help sound a lot, as the cheap chinese parts don't do it much justice, but this is still a fine sounding amp.

OVERALL OPINION

I like the tone of this amp the best, as well as the dynamic response. The reverb isn't quite as good as the old ones, but it's still ok. I don't use tremolo much but I think that this amp has a great tremolo. It's not too expensive and while it's not quite as stellar-sounding as the original AC30s, it's a fraction of the price, so it's possibly a better bargain. This is definitely worth checking out.

Vox AC30CC2
everything has already been said above there

UTILIZATION

the manual is not much, you get used to the settings quickly, and you get different sounds for each position of knobs or switches

SOUNDS

I play ROCK! well the vintage of the machine suits me perfectly. whatsoever with my "strat" ​​self made, a Lag RS500 Limited, or an old Epiphone Les Paul, there's plenty to be + as pleasure. Pure and punchy crunch well, depending on the volume of microphones and guitars, the sound palette is unimaginable. and without any effects, I'm a dinosaur, a guitar, a cable or a radio and amp, period.

OVERALL OPINION

I for 3 days, I've been dreaming for a long time .... I had lots of amps guitar in 36 years, but it would take too long to list, but this one I needed. I bathed with Bertignac, the Stones, Led Zep and co, I am in 1963, and then I returned to sources.je have acquired under + than honest can a great guy to me exchanged against my Hot Rod Deluxe. it has two / three years but has only ten hours of play, not even run in the first rehearsal of the bougre.à my group, I got chills, not too loud, not too clean, and hop back to the 70's and 80's. even other musicos congratulated me on my purchase. I put 9/10 because of the weight, but it is not able to move for the rehearsal room is my home. for future concerts, well, I'd watch my back or I'd help a friend.

Finlay's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Vox AC30CC2
This amp is the heir to a long line ... He has the traditional qualities of the classic series and Top Boost. A simple test volume therefore can appreciate the musicality of the two channels. I would also emphasize the attention of the editor of the previous opinion that a tube amp is played at least with the volume to 12 to take the quintessence of the lamps ... Below, the stuff is under-exploited and his Master is necessarily less convaincant.Le including here on this model to bring the volume to a reasonable level without impacting the performance of the lamps.
Regarding the technical specifications of this amp, I add that Vox has only eight lamps (including Tung Sol since 2006) and not 11 as noted below. Power is 33W with the possibility of reducing it to 22W, which has the consequence that the amp cruncher earlier.
Manufacturing, meanwhile, seems well made and the overall quality of finishes (bonding, precision assembly and stability of the chassis ...) than my Laney (made in England).

UTILIZATION

The configuration and general ergonomics are likely to confuse more than a first glance, however, after a little time to adapt (to both channels 1 to the "cut" with the equalizer on the channel Top Boost ...), we quickly realized that the sound delivered by this amp are sumptuous and the many possibilities. The HP-Vox Wharfedale déméritent do not and can even benefit from a wider range devoted to the clean sounds alnico blues (which crunchent faster performance require-15W). As with all new HP, it will be necessary to lapping playing at high volume (yes!) for several hours. To be enjoyed without moderation then.

SOUNDS

The sounds of the Vox are consistent with what is expected of such an amplifier. The clean sounds are slammin, incisive without altering the personality of the guitar. Crunches are still warm with a big headroom. Connected alternately with a Gibson Lespaul Std, a rise in Mex Tele Bill Lawrence and sometimes an Ibanez AF105 Jazz, this amp seems to accommodate all peeled they are offered with the same zeal.

OVERALL OPINION

Owner of the Vox ac30cc2 for over six months, I am more than satisfied. I would however point out that this amp to the strong personality does not necessarily agree with guitarists who want the versatility at all costs.

Teoh's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Vox AC30CC2
Amp 30W lamps
rglages pretty simple.
switch reverb / tremolo
2 channels / one master

UTILIZATION

Configuration simple enough, I do not know rglages lamps before buying this amp, but I think there are even simpler qd.
For me, there is no draw 36,000 sounds of this amp, but only one: a crunch sharp enough shuffled in the channel clear in the boost. Otherwise, I find the sounds without much relief when indpendant. The master is trs effective, and it was under the foot.
I never Exceeds the first third of overall volume.
I find the equalization of rglages trs ineffective, as the tone. I tried a 71 Plexi Orange simply extraordinary level rglage it is far trs.
Accs lamps and Hp trsdlicat!
PSE does a death: 35 kg

SOUNDS

It should be what I do. I use a strat changes. It is true that vox trs pronounced in the mids. We are in sound trs rock n 'roll, but you can also make a big sound with more distortion. is what I do in adding to the crunch. Although I need in my group as a sound, I have an AIM wider range of rglages of equalization. I think investing in a standard ending for SG, I think a change that should, and do something pretty with the AC30.

OVERALL OPINION

I for 2 years.
This is a good amp for beginners in the world of all-tube, but I think that even when these repetitions are far from originles. They look less fragile and sensitive of the same, and dlivrent volume with good sound lamp.
Although heavy, has still a must in the world of combo.
I bought this amp by chance APRS have little wolf Orange, and I did not put his level and crystal! Snif ... But we can not quite compare either.
But the rest CC2 trs correct all of the same. The ratio quality price is excellent, I pay my own nine 990 euros. I do not know if I would do this choice today, but APRS have searched in vain for a Fender Bassman 50, and missed the Orange, he has had to throw water at one time or another.

musicmanseb's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Vox AC30CC2
It is a good tube amp, no need to present it to you, it's a legend. This version includes a normal channel and a top clanal boost.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, just choose the channel, volume up and go my kiki. Adding master volume can not quarrel with the neighbors.

SOUNDS

So there is a real joy. Being a fan of U2, Radiohead, Delirious, in short, just about anything that comes from England, the amp perfect for me. I play a Gibson ES335 .. I plug in the normal channel. The clean is just beautiful and crystalline. I stuck him a few pedals that allow for a rich palette of sounds: Tubescreamer TS808, Boss DD6 Delay, MXR Dynacomp, Zvex Fuzz Factory. If we plug in the Top Boost, you get the sound that made the legendary groups of the british invasion.
The only thing that annoyed me is the quality of speakers sold home (Wharfdale), it sounds too harsh and confusing. So I upgraded yesterday to the Celestion Blue. And there is the pure happiness. You really see the difference.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for almost 2 years. I love this amp, I had always dreamed of. Reliability level, I had to bring it to the after sales service once because a fuse had blown (due to a lamp burned). I am more than satisfied with my purchase but I think you have to take this amp with Celestion Blue, where he shows its full potential and that you get what his legend as desired.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of this amp is simple die .. When I first use I have not even opened the manual ..
All you need is a minimum of knowledge about the amps to use easily.
The manual is clear prcis, trs simple .. It includes all live!
The problem is the footswitch..REVERB / ​​TREMOLO must buy one or distortions ..
Go, I hasten to give my opinion on the sounds D

SOUNDS

I arrived with this big white box "VOX", I ask, I quickly and I soon DBAL branch amp .. : P: P
I leave the heat lamps 11 quietly while I plug in my guitar, my clothes, I give myself etc. ..
I turn, I get enough for the sound, and great joy l. .. .. what a sound! What power! What energy! WHAT EXTENT? Anyway .. what a pleasure!
I use a Fender Thinline Tlcaster 72 ', and consquent, it sounds .. even serious!
Even with an effects rack, (2 disto, whawha, delay, reverb etc ...) it still sounds as well ...
I use the clean, my distortions are largely the case ..
The sound of this amp is so well equilibrated that covers many styles of music .. I play progressive rock, mogwai the alternative, archive, radiohead, and the sound is perfect.
I got the guitar back, I hasten to play now ..
I put 10 because I love it!

OVERALL OPINION

I've had one week, and I think I have enough tweaking to see what I say about this amp. I use the clean sound, its crunchy overdrive tends m'intresse does not so much .. I plan to buy the speakers with Celestion blue ALNICO of curiosities but not now .. .. Its use is very s simple, the sound is perfect, we feel the legends ..
The price is affordable trs, I had quite a discount over what luck!
I shot remake of the same choice!
I tell you something .. something .. trs sincre
GET FAST!

Faster than that GO!

RaphRaymond's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Vox AC30CC2
All Tube Combo Amp 30Watts, 2 inputs, 2 channels, separate volume and gain for the 2 channels, EQ common tremolo.

UTILIZATION

Well it's a simple amp to use, the only downside is that you can not change channels without changing the input. So is it only works with a single sound, or we take an A / Bbox to move from one channel to another.
It gets all the sound, and what a sound! I talk about it right after ...
I drop a little note for two non-switchable inputs ... in the era of digital pedals on it could at least make a little switch in mono jack, if it's as simple as any two-channel amp lamp (C50, HotRod).

SOUNDS

Well the sound of the AC30 is a reference for both the clean and for the full "top boost".
The sound is clean snapping, snarling. Which gives a clean sin, really dynamic. The sound is deep and wide cepandant less than a Fender or a Peavey Classic, but sharper, more brilliant.
The sound is a saturated overdrive just as aggressive and sharp, very sharp sound. A little more cramped than Fender and Peavey, but broader than Marshall. It's really a unique sound, both hyper-edged and aggressive, but nice and do not break the ears being garish. A beautiful grain of the Beatles to Brit rock Arctic Monkeys.

Pitfalls of a single, it's so unique, distinctive and recognized as a very personal it is not ...

The tremolo is very nice, but the frequency does not rise very high, even at the bottom there is very slow for my taste ...

OVERALL OPINION

A great amp with a great sound. A small problem for the A / B switch box needed for the two channels and the overall sound a bit cramped. But what grain ...

lovefender's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Vox AC30CC2
All Tube Combo
Power-"official" 30-W, but its more spit
-Loop effect and the possibility to meter cabinets (by cutting the internal HP)
-No adjustment has been a clean switch really good brightness and crunch channel where you rule the Trebble and bass
-Master volume with a Bass Adjustment gnral
-10 As easy to use for a good sound

UTILIZATION

I like the least
ok you can have a good sound easy to clean and crunch, but the trick is that the footswitch is used only tremolo and reverb pedals live but for a mandatory if you want to clean the passser crunch as all its pots to rule on the amp and it is not practical
The manual is short but it provides information on everything!

SOUNDS

Is the strong point of the amp;)
It's a beautiful trs and suits me perfectly for the type of phone but for big sound I connect my POD and here (I am considering buying a bulldog it seems that it makes for good sound type AC DC) and a small Overd to Led Zepp and more!
I play a Blackmore signature (stratum for those unfamiliar with lol (I doubt permmettez))
The clean and crunch sound wonderful!

OVERALL OPINION

I have since yesterday and I love its clean especially when you crunch the lightweight (for the blues <3)
I tried a JCM 800, DSL 401, and a Hot Rod but the Vox which I won: D
I think I do it again the same choice!
Just missing the footswitch clean / crunch but its ratrappe is faster with an OD pedals / Disto
