iamqman's review"Poopr man's AC30, but not really an AC30"

Vox AC30VR
This is basically y the bottom dwelling Vox Ac30. This thing is called the Valve reactor technology which mean you supposedly get the same tone with less tubes and less weight. So it is basically a hybrid amp with solid state or digital and tubes as well. I cut through all the bull crap...this sounds like a cheaper Vox practice amp in the size of a regular Ac30. Nothing has changed in size but the amps sounds similar to the $100-300 Vox amp modelers or practice amps.

SOUNDS

They have this new modern nu metal tone in here that sounds nothing like a Vox. If you are looking into getting a Vox Ac30 because your favorite player uses one, this is not what they are playing. If you are a Brian May fan or an Edge fan they would never play this amp. I suggest you save a bit more cash and get a used real Ac30.

The tone of this amp still sounds like a cheap solid state amp that has no character or feel in the tone. There is no warmth or smooth tube tone to this amp. Even though it has a preamp tube in the power section this thing doesn't even remotely sound like an AC30.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a big pass for me. The amp sounds sterile and thin much like a solid state amp should sound like...garbage! Don't waste you money on this amp.

At new these amps come in at around $550, which is about $450 over priced. You are paying for an extra speaker and a logo that looks like a Vox Ac30. This is not an AC30 by any means.
