The only difference in this and the TB35C1 is that is has an extra speaker. You get the same features and lack of tone as you do in the 1x12 version, but just in a bigger cab and an extra speaker.

This amp is very mediocre. Nothing about this amp screams buy me or play me at all. They get this amp designer whom I have never heard of to design their amps for them because they seem to forget how now shipping basically everything to China now. This is the Tony Bruno designed amp with the tone of a classic Vox but it is nothing special in tone features or anything.

SOUNDS

Nothing about this amp tells me that Vox has really changed anything and is going back to the old. I have no idea where this is made but my guess is in China since they could care less about tone and quality anymore. Since Vox changed manufacturing about 5 years ago they're amps have really gone down hill. There are some still hits but the quality and craftsmanship is no longer in existence.

OVERALL OPINION

This amp is a waste of time and money if you want a good Vox tone. Search the used market and pick up a UK made one from a few years back. Or get a Divided BY 13 AC30 version amp. Hayseed amps made a great clone of an original or if you feel like selling you arm or leg then get a newly manufactured JMI amp. They are only about $4500. That price is just ludicrous!

At new this amp come in at around $1399 and why it priced that high is because TB has to take a cut too. That comes with the signature series type amp from any manufacturer, the problem is who the heck is this guy?
