Features

Features

An Evolution in Tone

The VOX AC30 Custom Series 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 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 Custom Series can deliver everything from a clean VOX "chimey" sound to a powerful overdriven tone.

Sound in Motion

You can sweeten the sound of the AC30 Custom Series using the VOX 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, adding spaciousness to the sound. The AC30C2X also includes an additional tone control in the Reverb section. All AC30 Custom amps can use the VOX VFS2A footswitch, allowing you to turn the Reverb and Tremolo effects on and off as you continue to play. The AC30C2X also provides an effects loop for incorporating your favourite effects into your sound. True "Bypass" switching takes the entire effect loop out of the circuit.

Power Sharing

The AC30 Custom Series makes use of 3 x 12AX7 preamp valves. A quartet of EL84 valves in the power stage drives 30 watts of power through a two 12" Celestion Speaker. This AC30C2X model uses the Alnico Blue Speakers from Celestion that were used in most of the original VOX amps in the 1960s. These speakers excel in enhancing the traditional VOX "chimey" glass-like tone. All models in the Custom Series offer a switchable 8/16 ohm 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, a 2nd output jack – the extension speaker jack - allows you to run an extra 16 ohm cabinet along with the internal speakers for a fuller sound.
