About This Listing

The Vox AC30HW series was introduced in 2003, hand-made and wired in the UK. By 2004, the limited run of this amplifier was sold out. When I bought this amp, I tried it against a 1960s Fender Twin and Bassman, but the AC30HW completely blew them out of the water.

With the Master Volume control allowing the amp to be overdriven at the preamp level without excessive output levels, the AC30HW can really growl when you're playing directly in. However, it appears to have near-infinite headroom for clean tones too. Admittedly I'm a bit of a pedal-head, so I used this headroom by using the AC30HW as a clean platform on which to build my sound with effects pedals.

  • Totally hand-built chassis with tag terminal board construction
  • Custom hand-wound transformers
  • 30 Watts RMS (before distortion)
  • Two inputs (Hi and Low)
  • Volume control plus highly interactive Treble and Bass controls
  • Signature VOX Tone Cut control (attenuates high frequencies in the power amp section)
  • Tube-driven accutronics long tank spring Reverb with Level and Tone controls
  • Tube-driven Tremolo circuit with variable Speed and Depth controls
  • Master Volume control that retains tone when attenuated
  • Foot Switch for controlling Reverb and Tremolo
  • I've added casters for easier manoeuvrability - I would recommend keeping them in as this is a heavy amp!

There's a little bit of wear to the tolex, but this amp is overall in excellent condition. All the components are original (which is impressive seeing as this is only the 25th one they made!).

I'm really sad to see this go, but I'm simply having to cut down on my gear for space.

Any questions - please do not hesitate to ask!
