When I tried this amplifier at my local guitar store, there was just one drawback; I couldn't get enough gain out of it. Everything else seemed spectacular. I purchased it on the chance that the Top Boost channel would drive harder with higher volumes.When I brought it home, I turned it up sufficiently and really played it the way it should be played, and I honestly couldn't be happier. The controls take a bit of getting used to, but they're extremely versatile. It will get some pretty intense overdrive tones at higher volumes. My one recommendation is to get a Line Selector pedal so you can switch between the channels.Anyways, you really ought to at least try this legendary amp.

I bought one from my local music store after trying it out a couple weeks and wish I would've returned it within the return period.Bad:-"Chimey" isn't the word for it, the normal channel is just too bright! It's piercing even with the treble all the way down.-It doesn't take pedals well and the built in reverb is hard to describe, but different than any other reverb I've ever heard- not good.-It's very noisy when turned up. The signal is still "clean", it's not breaking up, but it rattles and the sound is very loose.-The switches for modern/vintage, normal/custom, etc. do very little to the sound.-The tone cut control works well to about 1 o'clock, then sounds like a wet blanket has been thrown over the amp.Good:-I really liked the boost channel. From low to high gain, it's very articulate and you can get some really crunchy, classic overdriven sounds. Very nice boost.-Alright tremolo.I sold mine and bought a used Fender Deluxe Reverb for a way better price. You can still get those sparkling highs, but you can also dial them out for a warmer, fuller tone. The natural overdrive doesn't get as crunchy, but it handles pedals much better than the Vox.

Classic

Comments about Vox Custom Classic AC30CC2 30w 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

WELL worth the money. Vox finally got back the good tone!
I'm a Matchless fan as well as an Orange fan - and for the money, this amp is worth every penny. Vox finally got back to the classic tone. The added controls and cut control have helped me get to that warm and brittle chime that I love.

HAPPY :)

By Blues Axis

from Dublin, Ireland

Comments about Vox Custom Classic AC30CC2 30w 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

This is my first high end valve. It's a beast! Very loud, very clear and the tremolo and reverb are incredible! The gain is classic crunch tone. Heavy little amp but then again the wheel was invented a long time ago, so no complaints. Buy a mini airport trolley and you'll be OK (Vox why don't you start selling them with these?). p.s. I play slide on an SG with heavy strings. Classic ABB Fillmore tone through this amp :)

Comments about Vox Custom Classic AC30CC2 30w 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I have had this amp for about 2 months now. The only thing I did was change tubes and I also did the bright cap mod.This amp is fantastic. Do not listen to the bad reviews here. There must have been some duds when these where first manufactured, but every one I have played in my search for this amp was fantastic. You do need to put in the tubes you like but that is just to get the tone you like.These amps ooz vintage AC30. Just a fantastic amp that you won't be able to stop playing.The only negative thing I can say is that the Wharfdale speakers take quite a long time to break in. But once they are they sound fantastic.For those who say these speakers are junk, they don't know what they are talking about. Just break them in and your in tone heaven.The Wharfdales were designed and tested by an original celestion designer. They are designed as a combination greenback and G12H-30, and you can here that in them once there broken in.I would recomend this to anyone who wants to swim in vintage tube tone. And the extra features are very thoughtfully added. They do nothing but help produce the sound you want.I have a lot of tube amps from searching for the right one. I should have gone with my instinct and bought this first. I would have saved a lot of money in the long run.

Comments about Vox Custom Classic AC30CC2 30w 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I have owned this amp for several months. And have had no problems with it. It has a rich classic sort of sound to it. It can produce anything from crystal clear clean tones to moderate overdriven tones. I have to disagree with some other reviews in that in my experience, the reverb is excellent, you can practically swim through it when you crank it up. I have recorded with the amp on many occasions and consistently get excellent results. It seems very solidly manufactured. The downsides here are that it is very heavy at over 70pds. Its also very loud at 30 all tube watts. But if your serious about your sound, this will give you a good amount of versatility from clean to rock and blues tones. If you are looking for a good metal/hard rock amp, look elsewhere.

Rock machine.

Comments about Vox Custom Classic AC30CC2 30w 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I purchased my CC2 about 7 months ago and have had some time to really get to know it. I'm a huge Vox fan, but I want to emphasize a few points about the CC2 in particular. First of all, DO NOT shy away from this amp because it's made in China. In my experience the negative stigma is completely baseless-this amp is high quality and dependable. Second, everyone knows Alnico Blues are great speakers, but the Wharfedales sound killer. The difference is really in whether you prefer the Greenback sound or the Blues sound. I love British AC30s, but the CC2s are so much more versatile. With an A/B switch, you have a ton of clean/dirty options with this amp that you won't have with the older British ones (the independent volume on the topboost/normal channels makes the difference). As a matter of fact, I was recently in a studio that had a late 90s British top boost and the engineer was a little dismissive of my CC2. Ultimately, we ended up using the CC2 for most of my tracking over the British-I'm not saying it's better, but it's just as good and certainly more versatile.

A classic made BETTER!

By S. Stevens

from NYC

Comments about Vox Custom Classic AC30CC2 30w 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I've own a few vintage AC30's and bought a new CC2 recently. Kudos to VOX! They made a true classic BETTER! This amp is a TONE MACHINE! It is capable of the most prestine, glistening highs and the bassiest lows of any combo I've owned. Don't let the 30 watts fool you; these are class A watts. It's loud! Louder than my Marshall 50 watt head and cab! I use a modeler/processor with it and get nothing but kudos from othere guitarists whenever I play live. This is the best money you will EVER spend! I know. I'm a working pro who has played with Grammy winners.

Comments about Vox Custom Classic AC30CC2 30w 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I'm surprised to see so many poor reviews for the AC30 Custom Classic. I had used a JMI era Vox as well as a 70's ere AC30, and found both to be very inconsistent. My Custom Classic however has been a beautiful sounding and performing amp from the get go. I play 50+ shows a year and countless practices with the AC, and it's always 100% perfect. Apart from needing a preamp tube replaced after about 1000 hours, it's been nothing short of perfect. I play in an original indie/modern rock band -the AC has no shortage of guts. It's not a high gain amp, so I use a Virtual Sound Jekyl and Hyde for drive/distortion. I also play (John) in a Beatles Tribute, and love the fact that it can be pretty and jangly, warm and full, or crunch all at once.I have a friend who has had one short out on him... but I guess I got lucky. I'll never buy anything else.

Greatest amp ever

By VIA records

from Guayaquil - Ecuador

See all my reviews

Comments about Vox Custom Classic AC30CC2 30w 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

This is the greatest amp ever! I have owned lots of amps over the years in what I believed a never ending quest for perfect tone... until I decided to try a vox. Wow! I know it is made in china but even so, the price is really low for an amp this quallity.I gave it 5 on features because you dont need more on an amp: built in digital preamps and fx only makes things worst when looking for tone, and you dont need them.I play METAL, yes, metal with this amp, just plug my guitar through a mt2, and the sound is amazing, takes away the mt2 infamous nasal/bee sound.I own a studio and currently have this as my main amp, its good for any style, I play also jazz, blues and rock. Perfect match for my Gibson Les Paul Standard Faded.Quality: 5 although I have had it for 3 month only.Value: it is a classic Vox reissue, no further explanation needed.

LOVE my ac30

By QueenAnner

from Pikeville, KY

Comments about Vox Custom Classic AC30CC2 30w 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

OK...I've read some of the other reviews from the guys who don't like the ac30. I have to say, it's a GREAT amp! Understand from the get-go, this is an adult's amp, and if you're looking for an ultra-high-gain amp, this is not the one for you. However, if you intend to use this amp like a tube amp should be used, you won't be disappointed. Turn the channel volume to 10, set your lead volume level with the master volume, then set your level of gain with your volume knob on your guitar, and you are good to go. Wonderful crunch, incredible cleans...what more could you ask for?
