Hey guys, like I'm planning to do, I"m planning to get myself a vox ac30 combo and I can't wait to do so.

I have myself a crybaby from hell; it's pretty nice. Although it's great and all, I don't think it would be as full sounding as a vox 847 or an 848 would sound on a vox ac30.

Now my question here is, should I sell the crybaby and get the vox? Which one? Is there a big difference between the 847 and 848?


Cheers.

I've a Vox V847 and a 60 watt Valvetronix, I think it's a AD60VT, and it sounds

BEAUTIFUL.

I tried out a Crybaby, don't like it as much as the 847. I highly recommend doubling up on the Voxes.
Can't stop the signal.

I'm still waiting on someone to explain if the 847 and 848 compare.

i have an 847 and an AC30 and it sounds great.

Do the true-bypass mod on the wah pedal though. It costs about $15 but sounds 100 times better....... IMO the true-bypassed 847 is the perfect wah (......for me at least)

sell it.. definitely get the vox..

Jus curious, how does the Vox AC30 sound for trying to get modern or hard rock distorition sound? I've heard it has great cleans but what about then playing a crunchy riff.
#16
Hey, does anyone know if it would be possible to mod the 847 to take a 9v power supply instead of just batteries? I want to buy one, but I hate using batteries all the time..

I've been wondering the same thing.

I'm guessing an OD pedal will get it to work?

I have a Vox 848 with my ad30vt it sounds great, through your ac30 someone will cream their pants.

V848 and V847 are both good, I found the V848 to be a bit more trebely.

DANG man, it's sort of unreal on how so many people like the ac30 .


I seriously have to get it....NAO!


, I think I can trade in my crybaby from hell for a 847 at the shop hopefully.

Btw, I don't thin the ac30 would sound that great doing anything but cleans. Seeing as how everyone that uses them a/b/ys them with a differnet amp for distortion.

It can get a pretty nice tight hard rock distortion with some humbuckers and an OD pedal. Try it out so you can see first hand.

Was in Guitar Center today, they had the new Vox catalog out. I saw that 847. Says it also has a "buffered input" to save tone... ? No talk of true bypass, though.

Anyway, the thing that caught my eye is a new AC15 reissue that will be hand-wired in a solid wood cabinet. Looks gorgeous! Can't even imagine what they'll be asking for it.

I do it without an OD. Works fine. An OD would help and make cleans easier, but it's feasible.
