Vox AC30S1 30-watt 1x12" Tube Combo
Delivers a Full-fledged AC30 Experience
What can you do with 30 watts of jangly British tone? Plug into the Vox AC30S1 and you'll find out. This stripped-down 1-channel guitar combo amplifier is inspired by the AC30's legendary Top Boost circuit — the sound behind some of rock's most famous riffs. The AC30S1 is loaded with top-notch components, including two 12AX7 preamp tubes, four EL84 power amp tubes, and a custom-voiced Celestion speaker. Drench your playing in studio-quality digital reverb, and integrate your pedals and external effects with a built-in effects loop. You also get an external speaker output. Whether you're craving Edge-esque chime or smooth Brian May-ish overdrive, the AC30S1 delivers a full-fledged AC30 experience.
Top-shelf components for top-shelf sound
The AC30S1 may be a stripped-down 1-channel amp, but don't let that fool you. It's got all the good stuff. A pair of 12AX7s in its preamp and four EL84s in its power section deliver the sublime all-tube tone you'd expect from a classic Vox. Its touch-sensitive Top Boost-inspired circuit delivers a wide array of tones, ranging from chimey cleans to smooth overdrive. Beyond that, it contains a 12" Celestion-made speaker that was voiced specially for the AC30S1. The guitarists here at Guitar World are impressed by the quality of the AC30S1 — you get a lot of bang for your buck!
Loaded with essential features
The Vox AC30S1 doesn't skimp on features. Its onboard digital reverb is truly studio quality — whether you use it subtly or liberally, it sounds great without washing out your playing. This guitar combo amplifier was tailor-made for your stompboxes and other external effects — its built-in effects loop makes integrating it with the rest of your rig a piece of cake. You also get an external speaker output for pairing with other speaker cabinets.
Based on the revered Top Boost channel
Vintage AC30s with Top Boost circuitry are among the most sought-after amps ever made, and the AC30S1 mirrors that classic sound perfectly. Renowned for their trademark "chime," these amps have backed such high-profile players as The Edge, Brian May, Tom Petty, John Scofield, and Dave Grohl. That's why the Vox AC30S1 will never go out of style — countless top-tier players still depend on its design for their signature tones.
