The AC30C2-TV-BC 30W Limited Edition Combo from VOX is a recreation of VOX's two-tone amplifiers that were trendy in the 1960s, thanks to their use at the time by popular English rock bands. Every detail has been meticulously replicated, starting with the blue-and-cream coloring with thick gold piping laid in the joints of the two-tone covering, and the retro TV-front design of the cabinet. Featuring elegant looks and the classic VOX chime, the AC30C2-TV-BC exemplifies VOX at the top of their game.
The AC30C2-TV-BC offers two channels: Normal and Top Boost. Each channel is equipped with its own Volume control, and the Top Boost channel offers interactive Treble and Bass tone controls. This powerful channel pairing provides an abundance of tone-crafting control, letting you dial in a classic tone that is all your own. Both channels rely on the Tone Cut and Volume controls in the Master section. The Tone Cut control functions 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 volume controls of each channel to dial in the desired amount of gain. By balancing the individual channel and Master volumes, the AC30C2-TV-BC can deliver the coveted clean VOX "chimey" sound or a powerful overdriven tone, as well as everything in between.
You can sweeten the sound of the AC30C2-TV-BC by using the VOX Classic Tremolo effect. Both the speed and the depth are adjustable, allowing you to craft the sound you want. A warm spring reverb is also included, adding spaciousness to the sound. An additional tone control is included in the Reverb section for further fine-tuning. Using the Reverb and Tremolo together allows you to create a wider range of effects. These onboard effects give the Custom Series their deep personality, and will add new dimensions of sound to your own playing. Furthermore, the AC30C2-TV-BC provides an effects loop for incorporating your favorite effects into your sound. True bypass switching takes the entire effects loop out of the circuit.
The AC30C2-TV-BC uses three 12AX7 preamp tubes and four EL84 power tubes to deliver its 30 watts of power. A switchable 8-/16-Ohm jack enables you to power an external speaker cabinet when you need to speak with a little more authority; using this jack will mute the internal speakers. The extension speaker jack allows you to run an additional 16-Ohm cabinet along with the internal speakers for a fuller sound.
