There's nothing quite like a Vox guitar amplifier. Completely synonymous with the British invasion, the Vox tone represents the sound of rock and roll. Many companies would be content to rest on their laurels, knowing they changed the landscape of popular music forever, but not Vox. They continue to push their designs forward, producing some of the most sought after gear in the world today. Of course, the most iconic of all the Vox amplifiers is the AC30. This storied amp was a mainstay in the early days of the British Invasion, with artists such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, and The Yardbirds using it when they hit the American shores. It wasn't long before other artists listened up and followed suit. Brian May, Pete Townshend, Paul Weller, The Edge, Tom Petty, and more started using Vox guitar amps soon after, and the rest, as they say, is history.
With such a rich history and a diverse line up of amps available, you'll have no trouble finding the ideal one for you. It all comes down to finding the one that best suits your needs. For example, do you really want to rock out, but don't want to wake up the neighbors? Try one of the Vox Amplug Headphone Amps. These amps simulate all sorts of tones, from classic rock to metal, even simulating the sounds of the AC30. Simply plug these amps into your guitar, pick up a pair of headphones and you're ready to go. Best of all, these amps are so portable that they can actually fit in your back pocket. Convenient and powerful, there's no better option for practicing on-the-go.
That said, if you want that classic Vox look and sound to really rattle the walls, you're going to want to have a look at the Custom AC30C2X 30W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp. This amp is a stunning tribute to the Vox that started it all. With 2 channels (Normal and Top Boost), this amp provides an incredible amount of tone shaping control, letting you sound like the legends, or develop a sound that is all your own. And when you find the sound that is perfect for you, you can rest assured that this guitar amp is going to get loud.
Today, the Vox tradition continues with a diverse cross section of artists swearing by this gear. There's a simple reason for this, too - they're absolutely unmistakeable. All you need to do is flick the switch and watch yours roar to life; then you'll understand why nothing beats a Vox.
