    Ha! That is what I was pushing the VOX in the studio with, which prompted me to buy this one. Yes, the Wampler and the VOX will have a very close relationship.

    I was just downstairs for an hour banging on that amp with my Tele. I am more than happy with the tone. This amp is so damn flexible and has such a range of tones. The overdrive and saturation are amazing.

    If a great deal on some speakers falls in my lap I would consider changing them but based on what I am getting right now I am in no rush to make any changes.

    an ac30 with a pair of alnico blues is a beast

    What?

    I think you need to look at that again

    two 8 ohm speakers in parallel are 4 ohms
    ​​​​​​2in series is 16 ohms

    I have two 16 ohm speakers in parallel at 8 ohms

    Use a meter if you dont believe me

    Running a 4 ohm load into a tube amp expecting an 8 ohm load
    Will damage the transformer

    I just plugged my Rangemaster clone into the AC30, and dialing in Dr. May was easy, but when I dialed it in for a little Tony and played Sweet Leaf and After Forever, it sounded spot on. I had the biggest smile on my face. And by the way, this amp is really ****ing loud, 30 watts? Sounds louder than my 100w heads.

    Nice score; especially for the money, the CC amps are generally pretty good. Regarding impedance, if I remember right, the stock speakers are 8 ohms each wired in series for a total of 16 ohms, so if you wanted to put in your Blackbacks, you'd have to wire them up in parallel.

    Tone mountain range looks fairly all right too .

    I put on the Ernie Ball casters this morning. I went to change the speakers, and the first problem was you had to remove the head to change the speakers. The second more significant issue is my Celestion Blackback G12Hs are 16 ohms, and the stock speakers are 8 ohms. I am fine with the sound of the stock speakers; if I didn't like the sound of the amp, I would not have bought it.

    Here is a new family picture of my basement jam room. I know Dave's back hurts just looking at the picture, but even he would have to admit he would love to spend a couple of hours down there jamming.

    Anyone who doesn't give this a like doesn't belong on the forum.

    The only time the VOX and the Marshall 2x12 are leaving the house is for the studio. I have a walkout basement and can pull the car right over to the door. When I get to the studio, there is a street-level load for Studio A 10 feet from the car. Hence the new wheels.
