Ive heard some great things about that amp, but the other day i went to GC to play it, and it didnt really seem "creamy" to me.

Maybe i just didnt turn it up enough. But shouldnt you be able to get a creamy tone outta that sucker?


Thanks

You have to spend some time with it, it's very tweakable. The controls seem simple enough on the surface, but they're all interactive. And yeah, it sounds better above guitar shop levels.

It's a terrific amp.

Alright, it must of been the one at my GC.

But what do you mean by interactive?

There's no mid control, but there's plenty of mids. You adjust them by adjusting the treble and bass. There's a tone cut, which behaves in the opposite way that a single tone knob would work. There's switches for blending the channels, the voicing on the reverb, 22W or 33W. There's a lot to dial in just to get started.

Hmm, I quite interested in this amp.

Another question, how does it sound with a Les Paul, and a semi-hollow?

I'm a single coil guy, but I have an Epi Casino that sounds super sweet thru the thing.

I'm gonna be up at GC this week a lot to spend time with this amp to see what its like.

Thanks man.

The Vox overdrive isn't very 'creamy' imo, it's a little harsher (hard to describe) so for a little cream a tubescreamer or something in that line would probably do wonders.

All the AC30CC's have it. It's the output bias on the back. Warm is 22W, hot is 33W.
