- What kind of amplification (lamp, transistor ,...)?
Submitted on my Vox AC-30 parat superfluous ... dernire evolution of cr combo by the firm in 1959, is of course an all-tube amp (4 x 3 x EL84/6BQ5 --- --- 1 x GZ34 12AX7/ECC83). The CC2 spcificit of X is the quip be Clestions legendary HP 12 "blue AlNiCo.

- What is the power dlivre?
Is that the key limitations of traditional classifications. The AC-30 amp is 30 watts. However, the yield of each watt db is staggering: This combo does not fear any three bodies.

- What connection?
The ct vintage of this Custom Classic is obvious that ds aperoit both inputs on the top. Between a normal one between IOTC Top Boost while slecteur shuffled allows both channels of sound for Labor to measure.
Loop insertion effects true bypass allows you to place quantities of post-processing effects (chorus, flanger, time limit ...).

- What are the rglages the effects?
The rglages are-simple but powerful in effectiveness.
- On the normal channel, Brilliance switch provides extra enjoyable sparkling treble frequency drives.
- On the Top Boost channel, a debauchery of legalization is possible thanks two potentiomtres frquences acting on the bass and treble. We can not dig mdiums?? Error ... Switch Standard / Custom can vary between two types of legalization. If Custom mode is fairly basic, standard acts directly on the frquences mdium (acute increase reduces the mids and vice versa).
- A Master Volume of the ct (true more than SERIES Custom Classic amps compared to the originals) the tone of the Tagus cut power plays the rle of a contour SETTING THE: 0 we are in the neutral and you turn, you cut the frquences more acute.
- The AC-30 CC Submitted rverbration an exceptionally long, rich and deep. It is of course the amount of the dose related but also play on the Tone of this rvrbration and adapt it to sonic thanks a Dwell switch.
- A tremolo agrmente all with SETTING THE intensity and speed, but hlas not the waveform remains sinusodale.
A two pedals to activate switches or cut rverbration and tremolo.
- Finally, the loop insertion effect dmultiplie the possibilities of AC30: SERIES climbs, the signal sent by the send is 100% line. If you plug an external prampli (like a POD or pdalier) in the Return, the Vox prampli the bypass is what You Save lamps of this fast mounting and background noise. It is awarded on the basis that if you plug a cable into the send.


- The configuration is it simple?
Yes and no. Yes, because there are only a few manipulations to obtain a large enough ventail of sound, little knob. Not because we do not find it right away DIFFERENT channels between the switches, the two entries. There is also no question of moving from a clear sound saturated with a single click like modern amps. In consquence will require a prvoir distortion pedals for this type of use.

- Gets it easy to sound good?
It is impossible to get a bad sound. If this amp is a legends is that there is a reason. The advantage of the CC SERIES prsence is the master volume that can play low volume with the grain channel pousss bottom.

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
The "manual" is an insult. At this price and with such a history derrire him, the AC-30 MRIT a encyclopdie. The plate is ple face and tells us the bare minimum (LAN switches). No mention is made of the types of lamps used. However, a small box hung a fist gives four examples of the tense rglages for discovering the sounds of the instrument, and it plutt friendly.


- Is it your style of music?
I play rock, soul and blues. Nothing wrong: the AC-30 CC2X is comfortable in all these areas.

- With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I plug in a US Telecaster above. The association is idalie: the twang and the punch is fully expressed is retained. In effect, I plug in lamp essentially a compression between the guitar and the amp (Ibanez TC999 Tube King). I think m'offir ending for an OD / DISTO Jekyll & Hyde complter to the sonic palette and compensate for the impossibility to change the channel during a game the other hand, trmolo is remarkable.

- What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
The Vox is above all a clear, beautiful, may be the best in the history of guitar amplification. It is also the sound of the Brit invasion, John Lennon, the Kinks, Led Zeppelin ... snapping sound but rough, angry, but happy with the body. Saturation but no big push the volume and you will not believe your ears. A good crunch sounds can sometimes produce more powerful and more imposing than heavy loadings.

- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
Normal channel may seem a little dull when compared to the Top Boost imdiatement APRS have exploded the ears of his neighbors. Yet it would be a shame to spend ct as well as less typical to find it a more traditional sound very useful in certain circumstances. With the Top Boost channel, we get a brilliant sound, full, open and fleshy. Potentiomtre the volume (gain) amne an overdrive and a mid-term crunch at the end of the race. It becomes STRID when we shuffled with the normal channel. Another possibility that I love: with a gain 1 / 4 on the Top Boost, snap the blender, push the Normal channel 2 / 3 (gloss off) and now get started in a small fawn boogie La Grange : You left for a night your improvisation! All these sounds are amazing and you have the HP reconnatre Clestion Alnico Blue Bulldog really make a diffrence: they respect the feel of the guitar and accentuate the nuances of the game


- How long have you use it?
has now two months since I ... and I love him more every day than the day before!

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
I like everything: sound, look, the legends ... same manipulation "old" channels, the exact antithse my Pod XT, part of the fun.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Marshall, Hiwatt, Fender, Line 6 POD ... I have used and heard many great amps and trs good simulations. But the Vox AC30 CC2X silent for me.

- How do you report qualitprix?
1500 for a combo SERIES. I did not think much dpenser one day. But this amp is amazing and I could have more for it. I feel like jou guitar up Submitted. Now I can start playing the guitar.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice?
I give myself a few months to say whether this rdage MODEL delivers on the harsh in terms of reliability but I'm not too worried. We are not talking of any novelty fluff DSP: All components Submitted largely proven to the most demanding musicians.

EDIT: APRS three months of use, I just had a problem on the BTE. The fuse temporal power supply (a T2A) jumped during the heating time. A short tour by the APRS sales service has identified the culprit: the lamp rectifier GZ34! It seems to be a problem on this frquent MODEL.

EDIT 2: Almost six months later, I found this amp complment essential: the pedals from Fulltone OCD. Completely transparent, the pedals acts as a channel for supplmentaire amp with more gain than is obtained by saturating the channel top boost. We can reconcile the authenticity with a vintage scnique use more modern. In addition, the switch Low Peak / High Peak of OCD idalie fits the philosophy of CC SERIES: in LP, the grain is "vintage" while at HP, it sounds a little more modern, as with the switch on the back of suitable combo.
