Vox

Based on the classic AC30 design, with numerous up-to-date enhancements and Celestion Alnico Blues speakers.

Power Sharing
The Vox AC30C2X amp makes use of 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes and 4 x EL84 tubes to deliver 30 watts of power. The AC30C2X tube amp uses 2 - 12" Celestion Alnico Blues, and includes a switchable 8/16 ohm output jack for powering an external speaker cabinet when you need to speak with a little more authority; using this jack will mute the internal speakers. Additionally, a second extension speaker jack allows you to run an extra 16-ohm cabinet along with the internal speakers for a fuller sound.

An Evolution in Tone
This Vox amp offers 2 channels: Normal and Top Boost. Each channel is equipped with its own Volume control, and the Top Boost channel offers highly interactive Treble and Bass tone controls. This powerful channel pairing provides an abundance of tone-crafting control, letting you dial in a classic sound that's all your own.

Both channels of the Vox Custom AC30C2X tube amp rely on the Tone Cut and Volume controls in the Master section. The Tone Cut control operates in the power stage rather than the preamp stage, allowing an additional degree of tone shaping. The Master Volume control works in conjunction with the individual volumes of each channel to create just the right degree of gain staging. By balancing the individual and Master volumes, the Vox Custom guitar amplifier can deliver everything from a clean Vox "chimey" sound to a powerful overdriven tone.

Sound in Motion
You can sweeten the sound of your Custom amplifier using the Vox Classic Tremolo effect. Both the speed and the depth are adjustable, allowing you to generate just the sound you want. A warm Spring Reverb is also included on all Custom tube amp, adding spaciousness to the sound. The AC30C2X also includes an additional tone control in the Reverb section. All Custom Series amps can use the optional Vox footswitch, allowing you to turn the Reverb and Tremolo effects on and off as you continue to play. The AC30C2 provides an effects loop for incorporating your favorite effects into your sound. True "Bypass" switching takes the entire effect loop out of the circuit.

Features
  • Output Power: 30 watts RMS into 16 ohms
  • Speaker: 2 x 12" 8 ohm Celestion Alnico Blue
  • Inputs: Normal input jack (high and low), Top Boost input jack (high and low), FX Return jack, Footswitch jack
  • Outputs: External loudspeaker jack, Extension loudspeaker jack, FX SEND jack

    Comments about Vox Custom AC30C2X 30W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    This is my second Vox box. I have a AC30VR for a backup if I blow this one on stage. Roast the crowd with this pleasing tube warmth, way more than just British invasion! This is a great box with all three of my pedal boards, GT-3, GT-100, and a boutique array I built with premium stomps. All the volume, plus drive external 16 Ohms. Use lifting this 75-pounder to build your arms up and show your guns on stage!

    Comments about Vox Custom AC30C2X 30W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    Great amp. Enough said (Just Kidding!). I love this amp because the sound is amazingly simple yet can be complex with enough tinkering. This is what the professionals use for recording and concerts and for great reason. I have had Fender, Mesa Boogie, and Orange amps that are not even close to how reliable this amp has been. Don't buy it before you play though because its not for everyone. While you can get great tones for anything in between jazz and classic rock...metalheads should stay away. This is for cleans and a bit of dirt if needed. The knobs are very simple and easy to use aka it doesn't require a lot to get a great sound/tone.

      Comments about Vox Custom AC30C2X 30W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      I was just aghast the first time I turned the volume up over halfway and hit a power chord, the paper Celestion tag on the handle was just jumping all over the place, this thing is powerful people! I paid extra for the alnico blue speakers and they sound great although I hear they do break in and sound even better with a little play time. So far I just love this amp! I almost sent it back for an AC15 because it is so loud but I found I could nut the volume for crunch and roll off the master volume and end up with superb tone at a low volume for practice. the only thing that is a bummer is the weight, this thing is a beast and now I know why it has 3 handles. very nice amp, I will defitely be keeping this one. finding the right amplifier is such a personal journey, and one that is over for me.

      This is my newest favorite amplifier, and that says a lot when you consider the Marshall, Fender, and Mesa Boogie amps that I use regularly.

      Comments about Vox Custom AC30C2X 30W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      I have owned vox amps off and on for 40 years now. I've owned Sunn,Fender,custom,& many Marshalls,but I always come back home to VOX. This AC 30 W/alnico blues is the tone and power I have been searching for. It works well with pedals and the clean is to die for. I use a 808 tube screamer for dist. and I love the sound I get. I play a lot of slide, blues, Allman Bro.type music and rock, and have no problems getting the right sound I need. I patch the two channels together for sound options I've never had before, it rocks! I own 4 Vox amps and gig with 3 of them, but the AC 30 is the best amp I have ever owned, and I've been playing for 48 years and have owned alot of amps. I play a SG W/P90s & a 62 Strat and they both sound great in this amp.

      Plug it in and stand back!

      By TS Smith

      from Homosassa Springs, FL

      Comments about Vox Custom AC30C2X 30W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      Overall, I'll be keeping this and probably hand it down when my time is up. The only minus I have about this amp is ITS HEAVY!!! Get either a roadie with a good back or a cart.
      Great right out of the box, but I modified mine with a Celestion Greenback speaker and some vintage British tubes. I use Stratocasters and an Es335. I will cut heads with ANY Marshall!
      Seems very well made.I recall the new ones in the '60's were pretty sloppy.
      Twice as inexpensive as the Bluesbreaker PLUS reverb!

      Comments about Vox Custom AC30C2X 30W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      This amp sounds awesome. I have owned it for 3 years and it gets great, timeless classic rock tones with my strat. It is very loud for 30w yet it doesn't need to be played at ear-splitting volumes to provide great tube distortion and sustain. You really don't need a distortion pedal, but I sometimes use a Tube Screamer and/or Cry Baby Wah when we play SRV, U2, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, Hendrix, etc. Before you buy, listen to what this amp can do.

      The Last Amp You'll Ever Need To Buy

      By disc.inc.

      from Springfield, VA

      Comments about Vox Custom AC30C2X 30W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      There is really little that can be negatively said about this amplifier.It's beautiful looking, and well crafted. Simply looking at it lets you and everyone else know it's special.This amplifier is a tone-lover's wet dream. I've always been about perfecting my tone, and therefore I've been meticulous about strings, guitar, pedals, bypass, amps, and so on. This amplifier has met every expectation I've had in it.It has the crispest sound on Earth with a balanced dosage of lows, mids, and highs. The tremolo and reverb are especially great for crafting your own distinct tone. The natural overdrive you get from this tuber (by tweaking your dials) is PHENOMENAL.I've heard that replacing the stock tubes will benefit this amp...I'm skeptical, but I plan on giving it a try within the next year or so.You'll really never need another amplifier.

      Great for a British Invasion nut

      By Mustang

      from Graham, NC

      Comments about Vox Custom AC30C2X 30W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      I have waited for this amp for more than 45 years. I cannot make up my mind which is better, the sound or the looks of the Vox AC30C2X. It has that Vox visual "WOW" factor. Vox promised it would deliver the clean chimey tones I was looking for. I was not disappointed. If classic rock is not what I am playing at the moment, then I am still impressed by the tone-crafting features this amp offers. The Celestion Alnico Blues speakers sound great. The power was everything I had hoped for. My Rickenbacker 360 sounds so much better through this AC30 than the Peavy I was using. It is a British Invasion nut's dream!
