No.

You can get an a/b/y box to change channels on it if you want, though.

I don't bother with them. I use an OD pedal and my guitar's volume control to go from clean to dirty.

Here's an example of one, though: http://www.zzounds.com/item--MLYABY

Someone who uses one might have a better/cheaper suggestion.

edit: it's pretty self explanitory, I think. You'd plug your guitar into the in/out, and one channel of the amp into "a," the other into "b," and choose between a, b, or both with the switch.

You'll get one of those with your AC30 to switch the reverb and tremolo on and off.

I had thought about that idea of using the a/b/y switch but the only problem i find is that if you're switching from clean to overdrive wouldn't you have a massive volume boost?

ooo,ok, I think I will just buy an od pedal, or suffer with having to move the things manually...

Well, there'd certainly be some. There's only one master volume. But you run into the same issue using your guitar's volume control. I'd use the normal channel for cleans and the top boost for gain. The TB side is naturally a little gainier. I'd think you'd still be doing some controlling with the guitar.

Like I said, I set up the amp the way I like it best (with the channels blended), then use the guitar and an OD to go from clean to dirty.

Honestly though it probably won't cause you any problems not being able to go straight from clean to overdrive, you get used to using the volume control on the guitar pretty fast

even if you have an A/B box it still won't make a big difference with that amp. Your better off using an OD pedal with guitar volume as mentioned
