An Icon Reborn: Vox Launches the AC30S1 Guitar Amplifier

By July 17, 2018Amps, Guitar, News

Vox has debuted the AC30S1 guitar amp, which is based on the chimey Top Boost channel of the inimitable AC30. It presents the new amp in a simplified format, dispensing with multiple inputs, tone cut and tremolo circuit.

A fresh take on a classic: Vox’s AC30S1 harnesses the power of the original AC30, but in a simplified format. Is it destined to become a classic in its own right?

While some the original controls have been deleted, the core components of the iconic amp have been retained. A single input, volume controls, treble and bass EQ, digital spring reverb emulation and an effects loop are all present.

Most importantly, the valve-driven character is maintained through its two 12 AX7 preamp tubes and two EL84 power amp tubes.

One major difference, however, is the fact the AC30S1 is a single 12-inch speaker combo. There is an external speaker output for those who crave it, but some players might appreciate not having to lug the backbreaking two 12-inch AC30 to and from gigs.
