Vox AC15 to Vox AC30..Worth the upgrade?

Hey guys, recently got my hands on a guitar I'm very much happy with and see no upgrade in the near future. I play a classic player jaguar (and an epiphone dot, should the mood take me) into a Vox AC15. I mostly play small venues at the moment, but was wondering if you felt a distinct improvement in tone between the two amps? The 15 is perfectly suitable in terms of volume in my current situation. Is it worth the upgrade?

Depends. They're different amplifiers with about the same voicing, really. An AC30 isn't just an AC15 but louder.

I'd get the AC30 in the first place (have owned an AC15 in the past), but if you're happy with the AC15 and is suitable in terms of volume as you say, I'd probably save the money.

I agree. The AC30 is going to give you more headroom but plenty of people like the sound of an AC15, if you're looking for something to buy maybe look at an exention cab for the AC15?

If you're not happy with the sound from the AC15, then try an AC30 out if you can.
