The VOX AC30VR Valve Reactor combo amp uses an "old-school" split-panel design, the AC30VR offers 2 distinct channels-Normal and Overdrive-with the Overdrive channel adding a separate Gain knob. In addition, the VOX amp's overdrive Style button delivers 2 distinctive flavors.
Equipped with 2 custom-designed 12" Celestion speakers, the VOX AC30VR combo delivers a roaring 30W of power. The Normal channel offers both Bass and Treble tone controls, along with a single Volume knob. A Gain knob has been added to the Overdrive channel, as well as a Middle control for more defined tone shaping. In the Master section, the AC30VR features a unique Tone Cut circuit knob for dampening the high-end frequencies. Master Reverb and Master Volume controls are also provided.
The VOX AC30VR amplifier's back panel is equipped with an external speaker jack for use with an 8 Ohm extension cabinet. Using an extension cabinet will mute the internal speaker. Also provided is a jack for the optional VOX VFS2A dual footswitch (not included), which offers hands-free channel-switching and reverb on/off action.
What really kicks the 2 x 12" AC30VR over the top is its 2-channel design - featuring normal and overdrive. That means this amp is made to handle your need for old school flavor and modern edge - and you can easily switch between the two vibes using an optional footswitch. Although you could just switch on the amp, pick a channel, and be guaranteed great tone - the AC30VR also features a ton of knobs for you to dial in your classic-yet-custom sound. Use the normal channel's bass and treble tone controls to balance your high and low ends. The overdrive channel adds a gain knob and a middle control for more defined tonal shaping. Finally, in the master section, you can get your hands on the unique tone cut circuit knob that dampens the high-end frequencies for a smoother, rounder top end. Reverb and master volume controls complete the package.
Playing a big gig and want to feel the power? You can use the external speaker jack along with an 8-ohm extension cabinet. When you use the jack, the internal speakers mute. Whatever you do, you won't believe how much real-deal Vox tone you have pumping through the room, and at such a real-world price. The AC30VR is the AC30 for the rest of us - you can't go wrong here.
