    Nice! One of the three big guitar sounds after Marshall and Fender.

    Yep, I am chasing a few classic tones with this amp. I would think the majority of the mid-late 60's and early 70's guitar tones we hear coming out of Abby Road, Trident Studios and every other studio in te UK are VOX amps. Guitar players, for the most part, used what was in-house at the studio back then. In England, that was VOX or Selmar. There are pictures of Blackmore, Page, Iommi, and almost every guitarist of that era in the studio playing a VOX. I do not see this becoming my main rig, but I appreciate having it as an option to color my tone uniquely when needed.

    Here is Tony during the Master of Reality​ sessions

    does your ac30 have greenbacks?
    To be honest, I know they are VOX, but I am not sure which model. I played it, and it screamed, so I took it home. ​

    I found it for $625 with a road case. I offered $575, and he took it. Sold my Randell orange stripe to my singer for $200 to make room = $375 net cost.

    started a topic NAD - Never thought I would own one

    NAD - Never thought I would own one

    When I got the Liverpool to get some of the Page Super Beatle tones I started digging the VOX vibe. This weekend, I had an AC30 side by side with my JCM2000 in the studio, together they delivered me the best guitar tone of my life. Crunching rhythms came out of the Marshall, and when I switched to leads, the VOX would become more prominent with that violin-like May tone. No amp switching or pedal popping just both of them singing at the same time.

    I went out and bought an AC30 today. And it came with a road case.
