    A LOT OF AMP in this BRUTE!

    By Telegraff wolff

    from Redding, CA USA USA USA USA!

    Comments about Vox Classic Plus Series AC50CP2 50W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    This is the BEST SOUNDING MOST VERSATILE AMP EVER MADE!!! I am SO HAPPY I HAVE ONE!
    This has to be the most versatile and best sounding amps on the market today! The clean channel is every bit as sweet as the Fenders with gain settings that can take it into Blues, Rock territory. The dirty channel has enough grit to sound like a Marshall or Mesa when using the master volume and channel volume along with the gain settings! It acts like the older master volume models of the 60's with an added presence knob for greater flexibility. The EQ is awesome and shapes tone dramatically throughout the range.
    VOX has done it again! This is the BEST AMP and if you don't have one get one NOW as they are discontinued!
    You won't find a better sounding versatile amp anywhere! This really is an amp for EVERYONE! If you can't get a sound from this amp get a drum set!!!!

    Vox Ac50 Combo

    By Digging The Vox

    from Birmingham, Alabama

    Comments about Vox Classic Plus Series AC50CP2 50W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I love this amp! Up until my purchase of the Vox AC50 combo, I was always a Marshall guy because I play Les Pauls & SG's only for the classic Gibson Guitars & Marshall combination but...not a trustworthy clean sound. Let me just say that my SG combined with channel 1 with my new Vox amp has given me the clean tone that I have been searching for. Just enough dirt for that great bluesy sound without overdrive. Absolutely the best investment I have ever made.

    Great Amp!

    By --8TxpRTW

    from Manhattan, KS

    Comments about Vox Classic Plus Series AC50CP2 50W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I have owned this amp for about a year, and it blows me away every time i plug in. I play a Gibson Les Paul Studio through it, with the gain cranked on the first channel and it gives a nice classic rock type sound. The first channel i use most of the time, I use the second channel for soloing by giving it a little more pre-amp volume and easing back on the gain. In my opinion, with the gain past 12 o'clock on the second channel it gets kind of muddy. I gave it a 4 on quality because the grille cloth is starting to come off, but that's not really a big deal. i plan on pulling it back and just gluing it back on anyway.

    Amazing Vox value!

    By voxfan

    from Austin, TX

    Comments about Vox Classic Plus Series AC50CP2 50W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    When I saw that these had been put on closeout, I decided to get one. AMAZING Vox tones, especially the clean channel. Just that classic Vox chime, and lovely breakup. The second channel has some very usable overdrive/distortion tones, as well. Would not suggest it for metal, but for rock/classic rock/blues, this is one seriously great value! A 50 watt all tube amp with 2x12 speakers for this price? Wow! If you've been wanting a Vox, go for it. Be ready, as it is a heavy beast...but so worth it.

    I love this amp.

    By Tim-NwWiH

    from Michigan

    Comments about Vox Classic Plus Series AC50CP2 50W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    The more I play this thing, the more I love it. I run a Fender Jaguar and a Gibson SG through mine and it just sounds incredible. It takes some playing with to fine your tone, but it's so warm and rich that virtually any setting sounds great. There are plenty of features to play with, and the range on this thing goes from crispy clean to fat and dirty. I was worried that fifty watts would not be enough for my band, but as is I probably only open this thing up about half way and it's more than loud enough. I have had a lot of amps over the years, and this thing is easily the best I've owned. Years ago I bought a Fender Deville for twice what this Vox cost me, and it was'nt nearly as rich and warm. The only fault I've found is that I lose a good chunk of my tone when I crank up the reverb, but it's still pretty new so maybe I just need to tweak it out some more. Peace.

    Vox AC-50

    Comments about Vox Classic Plus Series AC50CP2 50W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    This is a tone machine. I've owned, played and used VOX before. This one meets the VOX standard.The Amp is made in China but it is definitely VOX parts. GREAT VOX sound! They did not miss. Good power. They only thing I miss the tremelo. Verb is good old fashion kind. Good deal for a working musicain. It's not the AC-30, but it is a VOX make no mistake about. Good vibe and jingle.

    THE BEST WITHOUT A DOUBT

    By Darin777

    from Down South

    Comments about Vox Classic Plus Series AC50CP2 50W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    This is the amp that I`ve been searching for. It is without question one of the best amps on the market for professional players. The versatility is unmatched. The tone is at the same level as the Boogies or Fenders. I`ve seen the negative comments about metal and shredding, well let me just say that I`ve hardly ever used an amps distortion channel for more than just a little bite. You connect your favorite metal petal to this baby and just listen!! Thats my point, it`ll do it all. I`ve never seen a match and I`ve owned and repaired many. From country, bluegrass, gospel, to death metal. Awsome is an understatement. You can`t beat this amp, you can match it with a Mesa or Fender tube amp but you ain`t gonna beat it jack! How can you not buy this tube amp for the price??

    OoooooooooH MY

    By Lonzenator-PAp8N

    from Pensacola, Fl

    Comments about Vox Classic Plus Series AC50CP2 50W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I must say that it definately has it's own character. On Channel one I have been able to get everything from an AC-30 chime/jangle all the way to a 70s overdriven tube amp sound that absolutely is incredible. Channel two is insane. You can literally peel paint off of the walls. The volume level is crazy, but the DI feature w/independent volume control is extremly helpful.Now my two main gripes. First, the effects loop really needed to be footswitchable. The only way to defeat the effects loop is a switch on the back of the amp. Also on this subject a blend control might have been a nice touch. I have owned/used a large variety of Marshalls, fenders, mesa/boogies and many other amps over the years (25+) and most that had an effects loop had these two things standard.The second major gripe, is not anything that could really be changed. It weighs a freakin' ton, why not put casters on it?Overall, I am extremely pleased with it and use it during at least 2 gigs and 1 practice every week.

    TONE TONE TONE...AMAZING.

    By Look me up on google

    from North Carolina

    Comments about Vox Classic Plus Series AC50CP2 50W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I have owned several amps including marshall, fender, crate and most recently blackheart.I always wanted a VOX so jumped in on this combo.Used it last week in practice and this morning at church (in a theater) and I cannot brag enough about the tones that naturally poured from this amp!I was using my Antique Ebony Les Paul and it was SOOOOO touchy... very easy to control.I layer several effects while playing including wah, phase, chorus and delay... while riding the VOX Wah Pedal... this amp did the rest of the work.It was like playing through a mega stack!Clean channel (to me) is a bit bright, but I still love it.This one will not find it's way to Ebay or a pawn shop. I plan to pass it on to my son someday!Jamiewww.jamiecarrollmusic.com

    A lot of amp for the price

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Vox Classic Plus Series AC50CP2 50W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I just got this new piece of furniture. At 78 pounds it will be in the studio and rarely (if ever) on the stage. So far I've tried it with a Gibson SG Standard: Great clean and jangle. Good high gain a la Pete Townshend on Live at Leeds. American Tele with Texas Special in the neck and a Little 59 in the bridge: Righteous blues and roots. Good Nashville Tele twang too. Finally with a customized Strat: I think this amp is best when used with single coil pickups. The strat sings beautifully through this amp. Fantastic brit blues tone. You can dial in a later-era Beatles tone as well. *If you want to shred, look elsewhere.* This amp is not for metal. At the highest gain setting this amp sounds buzzy and not good for metal. Don't get me wrong - This amp rocks for almost everything so long as it's old-school in terms of tone. At the current price there's no reason not to buy it.
