Vox AC30C2X question
I was checking out this amp the other day while continuing my search for the sound i am looking for. Ive long been a huge fan of this amp and seem to always come back to it when i hit dead ends lol.

This new line has 2 inputs for each channel along with the same features most of you are aware of.

My question is this: Is it possible to switch between channels with a footswitch? Like changing from clean to dirty as with most amps? The only footswitch ive ever used with these amps is to engage the reverb or the tremolo.

The more i play it the more i am convinced that i should get one of these but being able to switch between clean and distortion is an important factor in that decision. Any takers?

Nope, no channel switching. When I had my C2 a couple years back, I jumped the bright and normal channels like a Plexi and threw a tubescreamer in front as my "2nd channel" per say.

EDIT: Also, when it comes to amps like that, the volume knob on your guitar is your best friend.

I figured, the channel jumping may do the trick w my green rhino. I don't think my search is over but that amp is pretty much at the top of my list atm.

Could you use an ABY switch with both inputs?

Care to explain?

Get an A/B/Y, plug your guitar into the input, and A and B outputs to the amp's inputs. Then you can use the ABY box to select which channel you're using, or use both at once with Y.

Yep, I use a Morley ABY to switch between channels on my AC30C2.
