What our customers say about these valves:
“I have just installed the new valves in my amp and I swear I thought there was something wrong with it at first while it was heating up, because it was so quiet it felt unreal, but, as soon as I hit the first chord it truly started singing. It was definitely in need of a new set of valves and I am glad I shopped with you. I am 100% going to recommend you to all my friends! The amp now roars like never before and I sincerely hope it’s not going to upset the neighbours! A.A.
The Vox AC30 C2 amp first became available in early 2010. This is a 30-watt class A all-tube amp. It uses 3 x ECC83(12AX7) tubes and 4 x EL84 matched power tubes.
A slight variation on this model is that the valve rectifier was replaced with a solid-state version. Purists will not like this because it’s not original. But, on the plus side, the sound is now solid and it avoids the headaches of having a valve rectifier fail. The Vox AC30 C2 has that classic Vox AC30 sound and chime.
The speakers have been improved with the use of Celestion Greenbacks (25 watts a side) whilst the AC30C2X uses the Celestion Alnico Blue speakers. This is a two-channel amp and it’s really loud. It has that beautiful British sound that guitarists love. Finally, it’s worth mentioning the lovely spring reverb and, of course, the classic Vox tremolo.
