a couple questions

1) how are these amps? (not vague at all)

2) would it be loud enough to gig?

3) does anyone know the cheapest price I could get one at?

They are really good amps. Easily loud enough to gig with. You could probably get one new for $1000 used for $800.

1.they are very good at giving you a british sound.
2.yes profesional musicians use them live.
3.a new costs about $2000 used versions can be found for less, you can pick up a custom classic for about $1200 new and less used, the early ones which are considered to be the best can be found for about $4000 to about $25000.

I wasn't trying to name every band that used an AC30, I was just re-iterating to the TS that he can get a Beatles sound from the AC30.

would it be hard to nail a perfect Beatles tone if I got the amp, I mean with the settings and tone controls?

It should take a bit of tweaking, but as long as you have a good ear you'll be fine.

A good Richenbacher guitar and a AC30 Treble amp (I think they used the treble models) should get you an almost perfect Beatles tone, though you would have to mimic John and Georges pick attack...

they used treble models? I've looked up a lot about their gear and I didn't know that.

vox amps recreate that british invasion sound. the ac30 has that great tube sound, with a crisp tone. with a rickenbacker 325 or gretsch country gentleman, you'll have that awesome beatle sound. i've seen them go from $500 to at $2000
