The Vox AC30CC2X is an amazing amp for all styles of music. It?s incredibly versatile and the whole spectrum of sounds you can get out of this thing is phenomenal. You can get sounds from classic rock to modern alternative, all with a great warm tube vibe. The clean channel has a really nice ring to it. It?s very smooth and takes modulation-based effects well. The top boost channel is where this amp really shines. The cleans sparkle and shimmer, like the original AC30s, and as you turn up the volume you start to get that gorgeous tube breakup that gives your sound a little bit of grit. If you turn up the volume higher, you get a great vintage Brit crunch sound. The top boost channel takes all my effects great. The AC30CC2X has a channel blend switch that lets you mix the clean and top boost channels, which has given me some really interesting sounds, and it takes away the hassle of having to patch channels together the old fashioned way. This amp also has a built in tremolo and reverb circuits (both footswitchable) - the tremolo is weak and relatively useless, but the reverb sounds really good if you take the time to tweak it and tailor it to your playing style. The back panel has a really cool feature that allows you to select whether you want to run the tubes hot or warm for a vintage or more modern sound. I was a little hesitant to buy this amp at first because Vox started manufacturing these in China, but let me assure you that this amp sounds incredible, looks beautiful, and is really well built. I?ve had no quality issues so far, and I?ve owned this amp for about a year. I switched out the stock tubes but that was a personal preference thing. And the Celestion Blue speakers are totally worth the extra money - they have the same bite and sparkle as the originals. Be wary that it takes some time to get to know this amp - you really have to experiment to get the most out of this thing. Still I?d say you couldn?t go wrong with the AC30CC2X. It has the perfect sound for almost every application with a true vintage vibe.

I bought one hoping to replace my 1964 Vox AC-50. After getting it home and being skeptical about it's sound, I really examined it and realised that it's pretty cheaply made. The more I played it, the more I realised it sounded like an overpriced Chinese amp. The Celestians aren't the great British or American one's either. These Celestians are also made in China like the rest of the amp. Bummer...I returned this Vox shortly after and bought an American made Fender Pro Tube "Twin-Amp" which has an amazing tone and solid workmanship.

Review

By AC-30 Love

from Chicago

Unfortunately these newer Vox AC-30's just don't match the last one's which were still being hand built in England up until 2002. This is still a very good amp, but if you want the AC-30 sound so many guitarists talk about, you have to the get the original Class A's or the reissues from 90's and early 2000's. Yes, you may pay a little more than this one, but for a few hundred more, it is well worth it!

amazing

By unashamed116

from Fort Worth, TX

I have had many different amps including a mesa triple rectifier, a laney vh100r, a couple fenders, and i used a vht pitbull 100cl for a little while, and the AC30 is the best amp I have ever had! The tone of the amp is killer, the sustain that comes from this amp is amazing, and the crunch will melt your face off. I have owned one for 3 years and will never get rid of it. I know run the AC30 and a fender blues jr in stereo now and they are killer together.

Vox Rox

By Wisdumb

from Venice, cA

See all my reviews

I considered the Fender Deluxe Reverb to compliment my clean tone 59 Bassman but chose the Vox for it's versatility. The blend switch is God sent manna from heaven. The Celestions are crisp and bright while keeping their warmth as well. It's spendy at twice the price of the Fender, but the sound combined with the variety of features made my choice easy. I still like the Deluxe a lot but wanted some diversity for my rig. No quality issues for me with this non-English manufactured time piece -- you can hear history with every chord or lick you play.

I have never played anything better than this amp.

By RKent08

from Atlanta, Ga

I own this amplifier and I have to say that I have never played anything that I have been more satisfied with. The tone of this amplifier is amazing and while playing it you cannot help but feel as though you are caught inside this amplifier. I play a 99' Fender Stratocaster through a Jekyll and Hyde Distortion/Overdrive pedal,Small Clone Chorus, and a Line 6 Delay pedal. I have never been more satisfied.

Yes it's worth it...

By Anthony-B7cAj

from So Cal

I got this amp from MF 7/05 and have been playing with it a lot. The tone is awesome. I play a Ric 330 through it and this is the only amp that has finally got me the killer tone and warm overdrive I've been searching for. Great vintage sound. My other amps: Fender, Carvin, Ampeg, cant touch it. Not alot of bells and whistles, super simple design, probably why it sounds so great.

poor assembly

By WolfgangAmadeusMozart

from Atlanta, Ga

Don't get me wrong Vox ac's are great and they sound beautiful but many people seem to have serious reliability problems with these amps. They sound great but need redesigned in my opinion.By the way if you want a true 60s Vox sound jmi makes far better sounding versions, and jmi's is all about recreating true vintage amps and their built in the uk so seem more reliable to me as well. If you don't know who JMI is google JMI amplifications.

classic rock precision

By Bluesman-_AhY3

from Michigan

I actually found one of the last UK AC30 TB models with the blue speakers. I also have a Fender Super Reverb, Bassman and Marshall 1987/1960 stack. The AC30 TB rocks. I can mix the channels and the trem is amazing. I, now, know why so many pros have used these. If the CC2 sounds anything like my TB, you need to buy one.

Sweetness in a box

By ALPAVAN

from Mt. Vernon, N.Y.

I bought this amp about 7 months ago and absolutely love it. Even without all the bells and whistles that other amps in this price range come with, it provides tones a plenty. If your into playing the blues this is the amp for you. I have not used it in a band setting but would imagine that it would hold it's own in a small to medium size venue. I play a 57 Strat Reissue and am still looking for my sweetspot but enough fine tuning you'll find a bunch of really nice tones from real clean and dry to a real spacial open sound with some reverb. Add a distortion box and it will get as raunchy as you like. I'm not sorry I paid what I did for this.

Umph!

By Camjamalm

from PA

Lots of mixed reviews, but the one common denominator that most everyone seems to agree upon is that this amp has AWESOME tone. From clasic Beatles, to surf, to country and to rock, this amp does it all very well. And it is soooo freakin' loud! But you can't switch on the fly. Gotta dial it in. I brought home 3 of them before I got one that actually worked right, but now that I've got a 'good' one, you will have to pry from my dead hands. Better than my Ampeg, Fender Twin and Marshall AVT.

this vox rox

By johnnyplaysgeetar

from Ohio

After searching for over 2 years for an amp. I found exactly what I had been searching for. I had ignored vox the whole two years due to the "the beatles played vox pfft." then I plugged into one and it was exactly what I wanted. I tried the cc2 and the cc2x and the cc2x just had it. I heard all about the reliability issues but 8 months later playing It every show (about 4 a week, it hasn't let me down yet. I loved it so much I bought a second. Bottom line it comes with a warranty so if it blows you get it taken care of. I've had two orange ad30's blow on me, and I'd never part with my ac30's now they are my most prized amps.

Great sound, Cheap construction.

By Jesse J

from San Antonio, Tx

See all my reviews

This amp sounds really nice. Great cleans and nice crunchy sound on the dirty side. The Reverb is weak, tremolo is nice. Just like they say, you don't have to get really loud to get a good tone with this amp. You can make this amp loud and powerful. I do see how the construction is cheap though. My grill cloth started comming off too like someone else mentioned. The gold line that goes across the grill above the speakers became unglued after 4 day of owning it. :( This made the grill cloth droop. The Texas heat may have had something to do with it, but for a $1599.00 amp they can do better than this. It happened in my house and the temp is like 81 degrees max during the day. That is when I noticed the glue became really soft and the gold line would come out more. Great sound, everyone should try one, just be prepared.

Great TOne

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I do not own this amp, but I use this amp on a regular basis at my chruch. Let me say, it can crank above an entire band that is being run through a large PA system. Unfortunately, ours has been in the shop many a time. Its a tiny bit fragil. The last time we had it in the shop we had EL84's put in it, and wow, it sounds even better now. It has a great clean channel. The EQ settings and channels are a bit confusing, but with practice you can better undrstand it. Overall it is an amazing amp, if you have one, put EL84's in it and run a tubescreamer, holy crap.

Almost perfect

By FTP767

from Temecula, California

See all my reviews

It takes a stretch to find anything negative to say about this amp. But here it is, the negative, the input has a blend with the "brillient" and "top boost". The top boost only has the tone cut and gain control, it would have been nice to have the blend switch accessible via the foot pedal, and perhaps a line out would also be nice to have, also the reverb is a little weak, but, who uses reverb. So if that is all I can complain about, the amp is wonderful. Vox came through with the amp better than the AC-15TBX and with more power. The craftsmanship is superb from the design to the finished product. The Whardale speakers are a better value than the Celestion Blues. So if I replace this amp or get another, it will be the WHarfdale's.

Incredible Amp

By wolfdawg128

from Middletown, OH

See all my reviews

I'd been eyeing this amp for quite some time, among other including marshall, genz benz, and mesa. As my musical tastes changed, so did the narrowing down of my amp choice... I went from wanting a wall of authoritative, raging distortion with enough sustain to keep a note going for an hour to something that could be rowdy or beautiful depending on my pick attack. and thats exactly what this amp can do. The sweet clean from this amp and the raw british crunch is unbeatable in my opinion. The celestion blues are worth it you guys. As everyone has said, they're so much more 3D. Combine with a tubescreamer and some good cables, its the most versatile setup I've ever had. Do yourself and your guitar a favor and buy this thing...now.

AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOUND

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Ok i own this and it has not failed me yet pretty much it is the same as the ac30 with the vox speakers but better.i have owned both, and the difference is the cheaper one has good tone and sounds really good but if you want a more of a clearer sound something you want to be able to hear your tone even more i would recommend you getting this vox hereso if you have that little bit more money (because this thing is pricey but worth it) to spend i would recommend this one over the other ac30

GREAT amp!

By VoxRoxMan

from Indiana

i tried this amp out after hearing about it. I was speechless afterwards. i tried this one, the cc2, and the ac15. all great sounding, but I liked the sound of the alnico's better. I was looking for a good amp and I was down to a orange ad30, or this. I ended up buying this because it had more features. they sound close to the same. both great amps, The orange is a little pricier, but I absolutely love this amp and I'm glad with my decision. All I can say is if you can afford this amp defiantly buy it as you won't be sorry. Oh I gave it 4.5 for value because it is high and they raised the price on them considerable since two years ago when I first tried them out.

ehhh

By PTPLZ

from Oklahoma City

See all my reviews

Ok...as far as the tone, awesome. Can't beat a vox. The custom classic series' boost channel is a little meatier as well, which is pretty cool. This series is made a little cheaper though...which could be expected I guess, because of the cheaper price...common sense. Overall I would say it's still a good value, and should last awhile, although I was talking to a guitar tech and he said they had one in the store and they watched the grill cloth fall apart right in front of their eyes. I haven't had mine very long, but it's holding up fine. Awesome tone, worth the money if you can find it used. And by the way, go with the blue speakers if you can...they sound awesome. The cheaper ones still sound pretty good though. Keep in mind I am VERY picky about my amps...overall this is a great amp. You will probably be pleased.

Awesome AC30!

By PastorDan

from Bear, DE

I have owned several AC30's since the 90's. have also owned the Valvetronix (never again). Currently I own two of these particular amps and I love them. I love the new options that bring some modernity to a classic sound. One amp has the Celestion Blues and the other has the Vox standard speakers. I have them set up stereo with all of my effects in stereo. Needless to say, these amps sing. Warm and chimey depending on the situation. I use Les Pauls, Fender Strat, Guild Starfire through these and they all have a great unique sound. Definitely recommended for sure!
