Long story short I am set on an AC30C2 after trying it out at Long & McQuade (Canadian GC). It's $980 new and I'm quite close to being able to afford it.

My amp right now is a Vox AD50VT (which I'm going to sell), and I only really use the AC30TB model. I have a Gretsch 5120, a Highway One Fender Strat, and a 1973 Jedson Les Paul copy (made in Japan) with DiMarzio 36th anniversary pickups.

For pedals I mainly use an MJM Brit Bender (2 knob version tonebender), a Boss Blues Driver, and an early 90's Vox V847 wah.

I mainly play blues and rock, and am a huge fan of Led Zeppelin, Cream, Rory Gallagher/Taste, Oasis, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Yardbirds, Wolfmother, etc...

Any opinions about the AC30C2? Any advice? Any other amp suggestions?

Thanks!

Dude that's a terrible choice for the genres you listed. Get a 6505+ instead.


Just kidding. That's the perfect amp for that kind of music (although you may need a good fuzz pedal for some of it.)

I've got one, and it is absolutely perfect for everything you mentioned. Well, you need a fuzz or something for Wolfmother, but with those pedals you have you'll be able to get pretty close to all of those bands you listed.

Basically, GET IT. NOW.

Will be awesome. I assume that you're a Rory Gallagher fan? Rory used an AC30 in his Taste days and sometimes at other times as well. You'll love it.
