Hey UG

Im very confused at the moment. I found Vox amps, named ac30 and ac50 WITH tubes.. and I found them without tubes.. or just tubes pre amp. Could somebody please explain this to me?

Depends on what you were looking at. AC30s and 50s were at one point made without tubes, but that was quite a while ago. If you were looking at new models, you were probably seeing the valve reactor series. Vox has a bad habit of using the same model name for very different products, so just keep that in mind when you're looking at their amps.

Paying attention to suffixes like "VR" and "CC" is key. Those are the real model designators.
