Haha. Valvetronix seems popular.

Nice thread!
Does this also include those 60's VOX guitars? I love some of those so much...
This one time, I played this 1973 Rickenbacker 481 through a 60's VOX AC30 (JMI?) and it sounded like heaven! Erm, I'm assuming heaven has nice cleans...

Either way, Vox FTW!

^ For sure! I've seen some of those Vox 12 strings, they look amazing!

Rickenbacker and an AC30 is probably the nicest clean tone I've ever heard. I heard a Gretsch through one once too, that was almost as good.

The guitars with the hexagonal shape are pretty cool, aren't they called Phantoms or something?
And I'll also promote the DA-5 while I'm at it. Great portable amp with some very usable settings and effects.

One of these days, I'm gonna get an AC30, probably a 2x12, probably a real old one if I could afford it!

Oh yeah, has anyone tried out those newish Heritage AC15s?

I really want to try one of those, actually. Looks very interesting with the Alnico speaker, blonde tolex, EF86 and Top Boost channel...

I absolutely love my AD50VT, can't believe I only paid 200 for such an amp. It's incredibly versatile and every model sounds amazing, especially the Boutique Clean which is the one I use as my main sound.

When I used it in our leavers' concert at school a couple of years ago everyone else was begging me to let them plug into my amp instead of their awful selection of MGs and Peavey Bandits. And at the end all the acts played Don't Stop Me Now together - we managed to absolutely nail Brian May's tone with the AC30TB model!

But I still really wish I could afford an AC30.

Former owner of a Vox AD30VT, current owner of this...

http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/...pg?t=1193334831

Vox AC30CC1! Pawn shop find that cost me less than a new AD50VT.

It may not have the signature Celestion Blues, but I can tell you it sounds damn sweet thru the Tone Tubby cab it's sitting on with it's alnico 10's.

Also have a V847 and a V847a, 'cause I'm a wah'n fool. Actually I handed the original down to my son when I got the new one...

I have a Vox V848 wah and a Valvetronix Ad30vt.

Both of which are great especially the valvetronix, might save and get an AC30 for my next amp too.

Edit: Only pic I could get of the amp and wah together.

My first amp was the DA15, the DA5's larger brother (same thing, but with an 8" speaker). It served me very well during my first forays into guitars and effects. I'm giving it to a buddy who is buying his first guitar this weekend, because I don't have the space in my apartment, and I wanted to see the amp go to a good home (sort of like giving away a cherished puppy).

While shopping for an upgrade, I had my heart set on a Vox AC30cc. I love the Vox chime & crunch. But I wound up purchasing a Mesa Express instead, though, because the clean channel on the Express does a really nice AC30 imitation.
