Teahead Posted January 22, 2004 Share Posted January 22, 2004 Well I got my new AC30tbx this afternoon and spent most of the day, in between posts, playing around. Then tonight I hauled it down to band practice for the acid test. I went early to give myself the chance to get familiar with the new sound. I was blown away! It was hard to find a bad tone anywhere, save for the extreme settings on the brilliant channel, it was all good. The distortion that occurs is so smooth, it honks through with a mid heavy bark that just loves to be kicked up the arse with my Z Vex Super Duper. It can be a little treble heavy so it drives the Vox similar to how a Rangemaster unit would. I could go from a whisper to overdriven simply by digging in with my picking hand. I tried a little a/b box to blend the channels and there really is a wealth of tones to be had. The volumes are very interactive and the tones can be extremely sensitive with brilliant and normal selected together. All this, and the beautiful vibrato/tremolo channel! I thought I may be sad to see my Deville cross the stage but the Vox more than fills the vacancy. It feels like my first taste of a first class amp, and I think I've found a keeper. Tea.
