When considering the history of guitar amps it is easy to forget that for such a vital part of the chain it is still in its infancy as a product with many of the amps that we know, love and hold as ‘legendary’ are less than 60 years old, making the birth of them a living memory for many players. One amp in particular has been there pretty solidly through all this time, and although it’s parent company has changed hands many times it has always been associated with an industry standard among live and studio musicians. Today we are looking at the Vox AC30 guitar amplifier.
Vox, as a brand of guitar amps, hardly needs an introduction. The Vox AC30 is as legendary as guitar amps come and are used by countless big name bands. However, Vox has a bit of a reputation as being a ‘one trick pony’ (even if they do it really rather well). We are really looking forward to getting our hands on Vox’s new line of amp heads later this month, which promises to expand their range and reputation. The new line of amps comprises of 3 50 Watt heads, each having a distinct voicing. The ‘Clean’, ‘Rock’ and classic Vox sounding ‘AC’ models will help mark the company’s 60th anniversary by using Vox’s trademark sophisticated appearance but with a hint of modern technology with the introduction of the Nutube preamp.
The new wave of the brilliant headphone guitar amp from Vox has been announced!
