Vox AC30C2X 2x12 Combo Amp USED
This amplifier is used but in excellent condition. It may show very slight cosmetic wear from normal use, please see photos for appearance. It has been tested and everything is functioning properly.
"The AC-30C2X is a true two channel amp. Each channel has two inputs. The first channel incorporates the preamp circuitry from the original AC-30 "Normal" amp while the second channel featured the Vox AC-30 "Top Boost" circuit. Three ECC83 tubes power the preamp.
Line out and effects loop jacks were mounted in the upper rear panel.
The AC30C2X also has tremolo and a spring based reverb.
The GZ34 rectifier tube was dropped from the AC30C2 amp in favor of diode rectification. This was the first time since the early 1990's that the AC-30 did not have a GZ-34 tube rectifier.
The change away from tube rectification in the AC30C2X offended some Vox purists. Many feel that the audio compression from tube rectifier induced voltage sag is a central ingredient in AC-30 tone. However, the diminishing quality of GZ-34 rectifier tubes in recent years has become a real problem. The first tube to fail in an AC-30 amp is typically the GZ-34 rectifier tube. When it fails, it will blow the main fuse and shut the amp down. Eliminatiing the rectfier tube makes the amp more dependable.
The AC30C2X cabinet is constructed of MDF (medium density fiber board or particle board). The AC30CC2X, along with its predecessor, the AC-30TBX , had 13 ply baltic birch plywood enclosures. Surprisingly, the AC30C2X amp is only two pounds heavier than the AC30CC2X.
North Coast Music offers an upgraded 13 ply baltic birch cabinet as an optional extra cost upgrade for the AC30C2X. This cabinet is not sold separately, it is only offered in conjunction with an Ac30C2 purchase at North Coast Music.
Tube replacement no longers requires that the amp chassis be removed from the cabinet. Removing the upper rear back panel exposes three ECC83 and four EL-84 tubes for easy exchange (see photo at left).
Two Vox/Celestion Alnico Blue speakers are mounted in the open backed enclosure. Jacks for extension speakers, along with an impedance selector switch can be found on the upper back panel." - VOX Showroom
