OVERVIEW

Celebrate 60 years of VOX tone with this limited-edition, hand-wired AC30.

To commemorate the 60th anniversary of VOX Amplification, the company is unveiling a special edition of the legendary AC30. Engineered and built from the ground-up entirely in the United Kingdom, these amplifiers are completely hand-wired using only the finest available components. By 1964 the British Invasion was well underway in America. Armed with catchy tunes and VOX amplifiers, the bands of this era changed popular music forever. No amplifier was more important to this new “sound of the longhairs” than the VOX AC30 Top Boost. Years later, these now rare amplifiers would serve as the backbone for countless seminal rock records and are still celebrated by tone connoisseurs as one of the finest guitar amplifiers ever produced. The 60th Anniversary AC30 is VOX’s tribute this truly legendary amplifier. Initially developed in 1959 for players who needed more power, the AC30 quickly became the go-to amplifier for professional players in the UK. When met with the demand for more control of the tone of these amps, VOX developed the optional Top Boost circuit, a clever modification that resulted in the signature sound that has become synonymous with the AC30. The 60th Anniversary AC30 is built in the tradition of 1964 AC30/6 and features a factory integrated Top Boost circuit on the Brilliant Channel. This six-input amplifier also includes the classic Normal and Vib-Trem channels to provide a full palette of vintage VOX tone.

FEATURES
  • Hand-wired circuitry
  • Limited-edition run
  • Painstakingly designed and hand-crafted in the United Kingdom

Comments about Vox Limited Edition 60th Anniversary AC30HW60 30W Hand-Wired Tube Guitar Amp:

The specs are lacking a description of the controls ! I think this is the non-master volume original version from Korg/Vox 1996 . Absolutely true to the original 64-66 Ac30's !

Comments about Vox Limited Edition 60th Anniversary AC30HW60 30W Hand-Wired Tube Guitar Amp:

I received my first AC30HW60 some months ago and play it everyday. I enjoy the amp so much I purchased a second one and switch them out for even wear. These babies are the real deal and quality is found throughout. I did however improve the stock tube compliment with a NOS set and the tone blossomed into the sound all boutique amp builders try to copy. A bit of a hum doesn't bother me but high end NOS tubes make the amp dead quiet. This Vox is very pleasing to the eye but inside lies a beast dying to be heard.

        Comments about Vox Limited Edition 60th Anniversary AC30HW60 30W Hand-Wired Tube Guitar Amp:

        This amp has the sound. You know the sound, that sound so many boutique amp makers try to replicate but don't quite capture. Vox created a time warp by crafting an amp with a tone for the ages. I have always loved those unmistakable mids of the AC30 and the 60th anniversary delivers in spades. Even powered off, I would place it in the living room as a beautiful piece of furniture lol. I didn't expect such fine appointments and attention to detail but it's best feature is the voice that harkens back to yesteryear. The real deal, often copied but never accurately, until now. The tone and heritage of this amp makes the price a great value and is certain to outlast my mother-in-law. Love it, simply love it.
