I hate you for making this thread. I was going to do this.

EDIT: Getting an AC30 for Christmas!

And what's with the price rise on MF?

I was wondering about that too, but it seems Guitar Center is still selling them for $999, everywhere else, Sweetwater, MF, etc. they're $1199. Weird...

On a side note, those Vox Amplugs seem to be selling for a $40 instead of $70 :P

if anyone is interested in buying the 2x12 extension cabinet on the bottom, let me know.

depends on the store and the condition. I would say anywhere from 10-30%. A place like guitar center will probably charge more because it's already "broken in" or they'll lie and say somebody famous came in and played as if that has anything to do with the amp

Depends how smooth a talker you are but I got my AC30 for around $920 but then with tax, it brought it right back to about $1000.

I'm sure you could knock of at least 10 percent off.

^yea. take psychology and learn negotiation skills.

i didn't think there would be so many Vox AC owners here...

i have eternal gratitude to vox, with its cheaper line of AD's being my first amp. ive owned my AD15 for (i think) 2 years now and i still use it at home.

i also have a v847a. a real nice wah, although if i may be allowed one gripe, when bypassed, i lose a bit of brilliance from my tone. but overall, its not that much, and i still love to use it every chance i can get.

ac30? ive always dream of owning one...

i agree, but the bypass really isn't much to worry about, for me anyway. and basically everytime i have a solo opportunity when i'm jamming, i kick in the v847a

A strat through a twin!

Check out Sunday Bloody Sunday by U2. A fine example of the strat through the AC30(methinks, sounds like a strat to me).

tweed champ??? gosh. go for a big tweed!
a tweed twin and a weber attenuator. see if Ted makes a deal with you.

cranked tweed twin = marshallish overdrive
cranked tweed twin - little volume on ur guitar knob = orgasmic cleans

thus:
cranked tweed twin = the win.

Quit 'yo hatin'.

Vox AC30TB = Vox (aka amazing) overdrive
Vox AC30 clean = Vox (aka amazing) cleans
Vox AC30TB + Treble Booster = Brian May (aka totally amazing) overdrive

thus:
Vox AC30 = Better than Tweed Twin

Lolz.

As for my gear list?

1) That AC30, if I can get it
2) Custom Tubescreamer build + Treble Booster
3) Ibanez RG550MXXDY. Oh yeah. Desert yellow, and with DiMarzio PAFs. My idea of a Hot guitar.

I have a AD50VT. I love it, it makes my crappy strat copy sound so great! And my next effect will be a V847
#74
I had a lovely little AD15VT for about two years...tonefull little bastard it was! Shame my style and ear demanded tube, 'cause that was one portable little box of suprisingly good tone.

I promise myself, I WILL get an AC15 someday! You'll see! You'll ALL SEE!

Any reason why you want an AC15 rather than an AC30 though?

AC15 was a little dissapointing to me. The overdrive wasn't as thick or aurally pleasant. Go for an AC30 1x12 is cost is an issue

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.


I got mine for christmas at about £150 i think, maybe just over 200, they were selling it on some clearance thing I think so it was probably around £150. I was well chuffed when I got it, sat there for ages playing with random settings.
When I get back home that's the first thing I'll do... after trying to fix it... o_O
