Vox Custom Series Amps

0.0000avoxac30VOX Amplification has updated its classic AC30 and AC15 guitar amplifiers to create the new Custom Series. Models in the new series include the AC30C2X, AC30C2 and AC15C1. The VOX AC30 combo amp has long been an icon, known as the sound that powered the 1960’s “British Invasion.” First introduced in 1958, the smaller AC15 combo has been the amp of choice for countless guitar players.

True to their past, the Custom Series amps rely on 3 x 12AX7 dual triode vacuum tubes in the pre-amp stage, and 4 x EL84 pentode tubes in the power stage of the 30-Watt AC30C2 and AC30C2X. The 15-Watt AC15C1 uses 2 x EL84 tubes.

All Custom Series models 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 as well. This powerful channel pairing provides an abundance of tone-crafting control. Both channels utilize 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 the coveted clean VOX “chimey” sound, a powerful overdriven tone, and everything in between.

The Custom Series utilizes a solid state rectifier that makes the amp louder, tighter, and more responsive to pick attack while retaining the B-plus voltage, chime, tone and output stage compression of a vintage VOX AC30.

All Custom Series amplifiers provide the VOX Classic Tremolo effect, with adjustable controls for both the speed and depth. A warm Spring Re...
