One of my favorite all time amps that has ever existed. This was one of my first amps than I ever bought. I wanted to sound like the Edge from U2 and I knew he used a vintage Vox Ac30, but I didn't have $4000 to blow on a fickle 40+ year old amp that you should never gig with because of the age. Since I was gigging heavily at the time I needed something that I knew would withstand the abuse an amp can take playing in clubs and bars. This was a great amp to cover that classic Vox tone and still take a beating.

This ton when you hear it on stage or on an album you can almost immediately recognize that it is a Vox Ac30. The have that familiar British tone but distinctly Vox. These am[s are the absolute best at taking pedals whether is be an overdrive or an effect pedal. It just absorbs the tone of your effects and takes them to a whole new level.

I like this amp with every guitar I have played with it....Gibson Les Paul, Fender Strat, Tele, and a Gretsch which was just killer. The tone that I got with a Gretsch Tennessee Rose was remarkable.


This amp was absolutely amazing! The best tone from an amp than I have ever played. I love the dark British grind that it gets when you crank it or playing clean with a nice tubescreamer.

I would recommend everyone who plays an electric guitar to own or just try one of these amps. The will satisfy a taste for tone unlike any other amp could ever match.
