And so we reach number one, and could it really have been anything else? With a staggering 16% of the vote, the number one spot belonged to none other than Vox's iconic AC30.
A bastion of British tone that defined a generation in sound, the AC30 sits apart from any other valve combo. Since the UK-made reissues of the 1990s, Vox been continually evolving its solution to affordable-yet-authentic new versions of its number one son.
The AC30 C2 mixes versatile tonal performance with modern build standards at a very attractive price point. Die-hard Vox fans will bemoan the master volumes and absence of a valve rectifier, but Vox's Heritage Collection is there for those folks. This new Custom is more about achieving classic Vox flavour but with a nod to modern usability.
It offers plenty of headroom for bigger gigs, covers some classic AC30 ground, but with a hotter, slightly more contemporary feel to the overdrive, giving it wider appeal than a vintage-correct reissue.
You might think that Vox is a bit old-school for you, but we'd urge you to give it a try and see just what 50+ years of heritage could do for your sound and playing.45 Stars
