Finally...

By Lad Goesl

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

Classic AC30 chime with a flamethrower drive channel and 50W of EL34 joy. Incredibly flexible tone shaping and an effects loop. The Wharfdale speakers actually really sing with the extra 20W over an AC30. Master volume keeps it reasonable, but it shines when wide open. I use a 72 Tele Deluxe, Hagstrom Deluxe F, and a 60s Fender Strat. I usually run a boost, but hardly ever a drive pedal. My favorite tone so far is with the gain on Channel 1 at about 9 o'clock, EQ mostly flat with slight boost to the treble and bass, tone cut at 9 o'clock, and both channel volume and master volume cranked... delightful. Actually the same settings on Channel 2 are great for a thick but defined crunch. No regrets here.

Vox AC50 CP2

By flyingwing

from Seattle, WA

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

I have had my Vox AC50 CP2 for about a year now. One reason I got it is that it has line out capability, for recording directly into a computer. Besides that, it is an impressive sounding amp. Channel one delivers a very AC30 type sound, with a little more gain and crunch available if you need it. Channel two offers more modern high gain capability. Channel two was also designed, I have read, to behave like a vintage, non master volume control amp. You do this by rolling down the gain, and bringing up the channel volume and master volume. It's really a third sound option, and my favorite. Channel two also has a fatness switch, which helps expand the sound of my single coil Telecaster, and a brightness switch, which can help humbuckers cut through the mix. It's easy to get a variety of big classic tube sounds out of this amp.

WOW Sparkling Clean, Face Melting Drive

By KidTiger75

from Virginia

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

I was looking to down size from my Orange Half Stack to a combo amp. I wanted a combo with a Great clean tone that also had a second channel that would some drive to it. I had a hard time finding this. The fenders clean was amazing but the overdrive channel (if they have one) was like the sound of clanking cans. The mesa and marshall had all the Rock n roll punch but I was not sold on the clean. The Orange combo is way over priced. I was worried I would not find this perfect combo until I came across the Vox 50 classic combo. This amp is perfect for me. The only down side is it does not come with caster, this is a problem because it ways about 76lbs.I was also held back by the idea of the amp being made in china but its hard to get way from that these days. In my opinion it is well made. This is just my opinion , The amp was a perfect fit for me. I tried the fenders and have owned Mesa, Marshall, orange and laney amps. All had there strengths but this was the best fit for me. This is not a bash on those other brands.Bottom line: Sparkling clean and Face melting drive...Try One

Awesome

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

This amp is really amazing. You get a Birch ply cab, 2 x 12" Greenback clones, and a pair of EL 34's that make it sound like a Plexi 50 watt. The clean and all the Vox chime of the AC30 and it's own gain and volume controls, and the gain channel has fat and bright switchs. Plenty of jacks on back, line out, effects loop, ext speaker jack and 8/16 ohm switch. When I crank the master volume and lower the channel volume and gain, you can hear the EL 34's character come through, just like Marsall's tube amps. Lower the Master, crank the gain, crank the channel volume and you get more modern Marshall crunch. So it's like having 3 amps in one. Spring reverb is lush. Presence control on drive channel is a plus. Tone cut on clean channel is goofy, a reverse treble control. Mine ain't leaving the house! I also own several vinatge tube amps, Marshall and Fender, this is my first Vox tube amp. The added Marshall channel is really the reason I bought it. The Vox channel has the shimmering bell-like chime I was expecting too. Amp is extremely quiet when idling.

OoooooooooH MY

By Lonzenator-PAp8N

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.

Nice versatile amp

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

I picked this amp up after realizing My Mesa Boogie DC-10 2x12 wasn't quite the right amp for me. I really prefer amps with El34 or EL84 tubes. They sound a little warmer to my ears than a 6L6 amp. Anyway, this Vox AC50CP2 amp has a really nice clean channel and its spring reverb really makes single note blues lines sound fantastic with loads of sustain. The distortion channel of this amp is very much like a vintage Marshall or Orange with enough crunch for classic rock,classic metal, or even punk. If you are into 7 string or detuned modern metal mayhem and covet that thick low end Krank/Boogie tone, then this amp won't be able to get you there without a metal muff or similar pedal. I really dig this amp's vintage looks. The included 2 button footswitch has a metal housing and seems pretty sturdy. This amp is made in China, but so is my little Epiphone Valve Jr. stack which I also love. I hope this Vox holds up as well as the Mesa Boogie I just sold, but only time will tell. The 3 handles on top of this combo make it easier to carry than some other 2x12 tube combos. It weighs just under 80lbs, so it's no light weight. It comes with an extension speaker jack on the back so you can always add another cab. This is one of the more affordable 50 watt tube amps out there. A Boogie,Orange, or Marshall of similar wattage will set you back at least 1-2+ grand, so give this amp a try... you may be pleasantly surprised that Vox has branched out from their AC30 roots and made an amp that can not only produce good cleans but can also play your favorite rock or punk tunes.

Sweet Indeed!!!!

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

I own a Mesa Dual rectifier head, A Mesa Boogie Recording Preamp with 50/50 power, a vintage Fender Super reverb and many others, and THIS is my current amp of choice! The cleans are extrordinary, like the Fender and the gain channel can range from blues to hard rock levels. The Fat boost even gets that Mesa Boogie low end growl!!! It does take some time to get everything dialed in, but it is very usable on all channels. I play a PRS custom 24 and this amp complinents it very well! I also use a full pedalboard with Carl Martin, Tubescreamer, Damage Control, and Radial Tone bone distortion/OD pedals and this amp takes all of them and it roars, purrs, or does just about anything I ask it to do. For you Metal heads, it may not be the amp of choice, but for you "Toneheads", that appreciate a pallette of tone, I highly reccomend it!

A great buy!

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

The best word to describe the the character of the amp is vicious!!! You can get sweet, sweet clean tones on channel one, but start picking more aggressively, and suddenly you've got a growling beast (in a good way) on your hands--without even turning up the volume on your guitar!! I can't get over how responsive this amp is to my picking fingers. On channel two, this thing turns into a super-monster. I can get such a wide variety of sounds by just slightly tweaking the eq.

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.

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.

I love this amp.

By Tim-NwWiH

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 AC50 CP2

By Hobiecat

from Phoenix, AZ

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

This is a fantastic amp, very nice clean sound and I love the dirty channel. I play a strat and a les paul and I get fantastic sound from both guitars through this amp. It has a bit of a marshally sound through the dirty side and an AC 30 on the clean side. I am retubing mine with tung sols as the stock tubes aren't great. I expect amazing sound. The Warfdales are pretty good but I might put golds or heritage gh12h's in mine. If your looking at ac30's you might want to try this amp. You wont miss the tremelo on the ac 30, its not so great. I have owned both amps and I prefer the ac 50 because of the fantastic dirty channel and total sound shaping ability on both channels.

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.

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.

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??

This amp is amazing. I wish I could find words to say all the things I want to about it. It's the Wal-mart of amps.. everything you could ever possibly need, at a great price. 50's clean jangle to teeth-bared distortion.. It does it all. My roommate is so jealous he's done nothing but talk trash about it since I got it, but I came home the other day and found him playing on it, and now I can't even get him to play his own amp anymore.. an Ibanez 100-watter. Anyway in short this amp is amazing. You'll never be dissappointed.

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

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

Just bought this amp a few days ago...so far i have nothing to complain about. im running thru a prs ce model and it really sings. on channel 1, the cleans are smooth...would probably sound great thru a strat. this channel especially remeinds of a classic ac30. nice chimey sound if you turn up the gain a bit. if you pair it with a good OD pedal you can get some great lead sounds. Channel 2: I honestly can't say im thrilled with this channel. its cool i guess and might be useful to some...but personally i think i will probably just stay with channel one. It is def. capable of more gain than channel one. all in all im really happy with this amp. reverb is great too.

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.

A LOT OF AMP in this BRUTE!

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!!!!
