The VOX AC30C2 tube combo ampâa worldwide favoriteâis now available in a limited Vintage Red edition!
From their earliest origins to the present day, VOX has sent numerous custom-color and limited-color amplifiers out into the world. Ranging from standard colors such as grey, blue, green, and purple to original colors such as two-tone and tan, this range of variation goes far beyond that of other amp brands. Each of these models has represented a further enhancement of the superb VOX design and unique look, and has captured the interest of guitarists in every generation.
Now, this limited-edition Vintage Red AC30C2 follows in the footsteps of the highly desirable AC15C1 Vintage Red model. With a character that differs from the limited red on VOX amps of recent years, this color projects a weightier and deeper feeling. It's an excellent match for the AC30C2, and will project a powerful presence in any environment: on stage, in the studio, or at home.
The VOX AC30C2 amp makes use of 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes and use 4 x EL84 tubes to deliver 30W of power. It uses 2 - 12" Celestion G12M Greenback speakers, 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, the 30W guitar amp's 2nd 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 two 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 is all your own.
Both channels on this VOX tube amplifier 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 AC30C2 amplifier can deliver everything from a clean VOX "chimey" sound to a powerful overdriven tone.
Sound in Motion
Sweeten the sound of your Custom VOX amplifier using its 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 VOX Custom guitar amps, adding spaciousness to the sound. The AC30C2 also includes an additional tone control in the Reverb section. The VOX Custom AC30C2 tube amp and all VOX Custom 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 VOX Custom 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.

I have the special red edition. as far as features, it doesn't have the EF86 preamp tube in Channel one, and it doesn't have the half power switch or various tone variant switches that some of the AC30 reissues have had. It doesn't have a channel switching footswitch, but this can easily be worked around with an ABY switch (like from Morley). The features it does have are well implemented, however.I've owned a number of the reissues over the past five years or so, and this is my favorite. It seems more reliable with the diode rectifier, and still sounds great. For clean and mild breakup, it sounds just beautiful, and at higher gain it's an excitingly wild rock and roll machine. It has more character than a lot of amps, though it doesn't sound like a modern amp (e.g. Mesa). The hand-wired ones seem to have a fuller sound, and are less noisy. Still, this amp makes me happy, and gets me playing for long periods of time. My other amps are Mesa Roadster combo and Bogner Duende.
