Based on the classic AC30 design, with numerous up-to-date enhancements and Celestion Greenback speakers.

Power Sharing
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 Custom 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 Customer 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.

  • The perfect amp!

    As reviewed by Ricardo Siguenza on 7/8/2013

    I don't even know where to start but I'll try.. this amp is just perfect! I purchased it today, and was privileged enough to play it for the first time today at church! But first let me give you some info. on how I came to purchase this amp. Originally, I was gonna go with a Fender Blues Junior NOS and my second choice was a Vox AC15C1, but at my local Guitar Center, they had no AC15s in stock and only one NOS Blues Junior but the reverb was broken. However, I ran across this amp and saw that it was on a nice sale of 800$ and I had a coupon to take off an additional 75 dollars, so I figured I'd give her a try. All I can say is that this amp sounds heavenly and just sings with my Strat! It has a very sparkling and pristine clean sound that I just loved. I am a HUGE clean player and this amp has a NICE amount of clean headroom available, but can also give you some beautiful over driven tones if needed! I play a lot of John Mayer and Neo Soul/R&B type of music on my own time, and this amp offers me a beautiful clean tone to achieve what I'm looking for. However, at church I play a variety of different types of music from worship, to rock, to shout/gospel, to blues. This amp can deliver me all of those tones that I need! Pictures and reviews don't do this amp justice. In person, it is just absolutely GORGEOUS and sounds even BETTER! I recommend EVERYONE to at least give it a thought if you have the money. PLEASE give it a try out.. you WON'T be disappointed. This amp will be my main and possibly only amp until it dies out, which I don't think will be ANYTIME soon or in my lifetime for that matter! haha

  • Well worth the coin!

    As reviewed by joe smith on 4/1/2011

    When i went in to Guitar Center to buy an amp... and I was pretty sure my Guitar Center wouldn't have the amp i wanted so i went there with a mental list of amps that i've wanted for some time now. My previous amp was a Marshall MG series 100 DFX- which i do not recommend. i do not recommend. so the main reason i bought the ac30c2 today is because it's a great sounding tube amplifier. it hits that sweet spot that you want a good amp to hit you in. you know immediately when you hear it. you can't go wrong with el84's either. at a grand, it's a bit pricey though. this is the most i'll ever spend (and intend to spend) on an amp by far. the important thing is that i feel the ac30c2 is versatile enough to support my musical imagination. the clean channel is crystal clear and can go from thick to jangly with minimal adjustments. the c2 is also like $500 cheaper than the c2x...but the greenbacks seem to do the job fine to me. when i test ran this amp, i played a gibson black beauty custom shop and a fender deluxe telecaster. the amp is pretty transparent when it comes to highlighting attributes of each guitar. not to mention, it's loud as fuck. i blasted my room mate away today when i cranked it up all the way to capacity. no doubt a drummer could prob hear you very well when jamming. but usually i play at a reasonable level. when it comes to the top boost channel, that's exactly what you get. the crunch (to me) sounds very fat and as overdriven as you want it. i would recommend this amplifier mostly to players who are into southern rock. southern rock tones sound the best on this amp in my opinion. however, i think this amp can do just about anything so you have to test drive it.

  • Amazing tone, look no further.

    As reviewed by michael gattus on 8/14/2013

    This amp is downright amazing, not even considering the very fair price on it. The clean tone on it is unbelievable, I actually plug my Taylor 816ce acoustic guitar into it use my effects pedals without having to keep an acoustic amp around. It sounds perfect, not much of a difference from the Fishman amp I was previously using. With the AC30 you get the ridiculously clean tone you've been looking for with the ability to get some good overdrive on the top boost's kind of like playing with a Fender twin reverb, you aren't going to get super heavy tone out it plugged in directly, but that's why they make effect pedals. You also get an effect loop on it to keep true bypass when you want nothing but a clean tone. I've had great lucky with a Fulltone OCD for heavy stuff and a TS-8 & TS-9 for cleaner overdrive. I keep a Xotic EP Booster at the front of my chain as well, stepping on that with an overdrive turns this amp into a Jekyll and Hyde type of situation, no problem matching sound from killswitch engage to avenged sevenfold down to Beatles or zeppelin tone. I personally feel that no amp can be everything to everyone as far as the overdrive side goes, so I rate them by the clean side and the amount of headroom they have...holy hell, I haven't been able to turn this guy over 6 without worrying about someone calling the cops or me ending up with hearing damage. It's the perfect canvas to play any style of music you love, just pick out your effects and tailor your perfect sound!
