Take It From The Top

Presented in excellent condition, this Vox AC30 Hand-Wired will transport you to the golden age of Vox tone. A must have for any studio or live performance, at its heart the AC30 Hand-Wired sports a painstakingly handwired turret board assembly, containing three ECC83/12AX7 preamp tubes, four EL84 power tubes, and a GZ34 rectifier tube. These are all matched with Ruby Tubes, which provide impeccable tone and extended dynamic range. While a pair of 12" Celestion Alnico Blue speakers add another vintage touch, the AC30HW2X's OP mode switch, which cuts the output power level in half, is a brilliantly modern feature that lets you get the classic tone you want at a lower level.
