Last year I was at an amp show in Van Nuys, CA with a friend. At least 50+ manufacturers were there. When we left, there were two amps I was astonished by and one of them was the VOX Heritage 30H2. (And this coming from someone that did not like VOX amps previously) I come from a Marshall/Mesa Boogie/Boutique sound reference. Since then, my friend has bought a 15H1 for his studio and I have an order in for a Mahogany AC30H2.The video on the VOX website, although a very good, does not due this amp justice. You need to here this amp in person. This amp is LOUD! (Thus consider buying a THD Hot Plate, unless ceiling plaster falling on your head is your idea of a good time) The Class A amp section, dialed between Channel 1 and Channel 2 pretty much gives you the ability to dial in every VOX tone, plus some (in my opinion) are not what you would hear out of a VOX amp(which I like). You can dial in a raw, boutique, gain-powered tone that can be effected as you see fit. This is extremely helpful in studio conditions. The clean is almost pristine and one of the best I have ever heard. One of the tones you can dial in almost has an effected chorus type tonality. Thus, no effects are being used, just the amp doing its thing. Again in a recording situation, this is very helpful.In my opinion, the mahogany cab unit has a little more bottom end (I assume, due to the wood). I play though my own handmade guitars, but also use a Les Paul and a modified Strat. It is seems endless to find all the various tonalities especially if you are accustom to a few driven and clean ?types? of sound. If I have one criticism and it is a pain, it is channel switching. Obviously, if you are an experienced guitar player and have a knowledge of equipment, then there are ways to overcome this problem without having to physically go over and pull the plug from one port and insert into another. Again this problem would only exist if playing live. In a studio not a problem and if you are using the AC30H2 for a specific tone live, well then again not a problem. The amp was never designed to be a multi-channel switcher so I guess that point is mute. If you have a guitar tech? let him worry about it? try this amp.
