Vox AC30 Custom with Celestion Blue Speakers

It's an AC30 - need we say more? The latest version - the AC30C2 - has undergone a few minor adjustments, just as any lasting technology should in order to stay current.

This special version (AC30C2X) comes equipped with Celestion Blue 12" speakers - the cream of the crop and the ammunition of choice for plenty of AC30 wielding guitarists - these speakers break up easily and give a rich smooth overdrive with clarity and sparkle. 

Here's what Vox say about the AC30 C2X

Never out of style, today's in-demand tube-driven classics

The VOX AC30 combo amp has been an icon for decades, known as the sound that powered the 1960s' "British Invasion." Based on the classic AC30 design, the all-new Custom Series AC30C2 and AC30C2X offer numerous up-todate enhancements, delivering the most versatile AC30 design in VOX history.

An Evolution in Tone

VOX Custom Series amps offer 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 your Custom Series amplifier 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 on all Custom Series amps, adding spaciousness to the sound. The AC30C2 and AC30C2X also include an additional tone control in the Reverb section. All Custom Series amps can use the VOX VFS2 footswitch, allowing you to turn the Reverb and Tremolo effects on and off as you continue to play. The AC30C2 and AC30C2X also provide 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

All Custom Series combo amps make use of 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes. The AC30C2 and the AC30C2X use 4 x EL84 tubes to deliver 30 watts of power. The AC30C2 uses two 12" Celestion G12M Greenback speakers. The AC30C2X uses two 12" Celestion Alnico Blues. A pair of EL84 tubes in the AC15C1 drives 15 watts of power through a single 12" Celestion G12M Greenback. 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.
