Designed to impart that classic VOX tube tone upon your electric guitar, the AC30HWH is a 30W RMS amplifier head boasting two independent channels and a full complement of tubes—three preamp tubes, four power-amp tubes, and one rectifier tube. Each channel provides both high and low input jacks. This gives you a total of four ways of plugging into the amp. Also, every element of the turret board has been hand-wired to ensure the most efficient signal path.
A Tone Cut knob controls the high-frequency content of the power-amp stage; however, for further fine-tuning of the EQ, plug into the Top Boost channel, which offers controls for Bass, Treble, and a Hot/Cool switch—a handy feature that partially bypasses the tone controls to provide more gain and a purer signal path. As this Hot/Cool switch can be toggled via independent footswitch, this feature can be utilized to give you some more juice for lead parts and soloing.
Turn your attention to the back of the amplifier and you'll see two external speaker output jacks which are wired for 16 Ohms, though, depending on the speaker configuration you're using, they can be switched for 8 Ohms as well. You'll also notice a footswitch input which allows you to control various features of the amp with the tap of your toes. The footswitch, a power cable, a speaker cable, and a dust cover are included with your purchase.
