February 9,1964, The Ed Sullivan Show, Sunday night......... The night that changed my life forever.
The Beatles made an indelible impression on me back then and I have been chasing the dream and vibe ever since. I spent many years playing music professionally but honestly never had the opportunity to own a Vox amp until now.

Now in my semi retirement I thought it was high time to treat myself to the classic British Chime and Vibe of a Vox , but just couldn't pony up the Grand for the all tube AC-30 and honestly didn't want to replace tubes for the rest of my life. Enter the Vox AC30VR, the "VR" standing for Valve Reactor which is the Vox Valvetronix tube circuit refined. Basically a tube is inserted in the power section (not the preamp) and then a solid state power amp takes it from there, just making THAT tone louder. It is a very good idea and it is executed very well. I ask myself, how much "Chime" and "British Vibe" can I really get for a little more than 500 bucks and will this amp produce anything resembling good TONE?

The amp arrived in a rather large sized reenforced cardboard box that says VOX all over it. (what?? You were expecting Fender?) Upon removal from the rather large Vox box , I was immediately struck by the sparkling good looks of this amp. Special Vox basket weave Tolex, classic Vox grill cloth , gold-tone horizontal trim strip, classic white piping all around the edges and the shiny new gold Vox logo on the top left. No doubt about it, this baby is the real thing, albeit the hybrid version. The only thing missing is the very thin gold striping on the sides of the Tolex and the only thing added is the very small "VR" logo in the bottom right hand corner.

Purchased it without ever playing it so I knew I was taking a bit of a risk but all info online (demo's and reviews) were positive. Always played Fender amps so I thought I'd branch out and buy a VOX. Plugged in and I was immediately disappointed with the tone out of the box. No matter how I adjusted settings it simply was ultra trebly, harsh, and thin. ( I play a strat from the 80's). The treb/mid/bass knobs didn't make much difference from one extreme to the other. seemed weird to me. I should say that I was hoping for the warm, clean, fuzzy blues tone. Worked on tone and tried to learn to like it over next few days but amp seemed to have little range or adjustability. Also the reverb was only even slightly noticeable when turned to 10 ( usually i have it at 4 on princeton chorus) and I emphasize at ten it was barely noticeable. I was aware it was "digital" reverb not a true spring chamber but I thought it would sound good. The lack of any real reverb I believe is why it consistently sounded so punchy and harsh. Perhaps that type of tone is the classic VOX sound but it definitely isn't for me. Also, the amp is clearly made of cheap particle board and covered in shiny, cheap black plastic. Looks like a quality amp from 20 feet away but up close looks like a toy. I expected better for amp over 500 bucks. Thank you to amazon for allowing me to return it. Bought Blues Deville like I should have in the first place. Lastly, I realize tone is subjective and dependent on guitar .. and even fingers. This is just my 2 cents. My bottom line: do not buy this amp if you are looking for a sweet blues or bluesy rock tone. Beware of "digital" reverb.

I wanted this amp to go with the Rickenbacker 12 string I recently got. Did much online research and shopping. Amazon's price was the lowest by far on "New" but I saved even more by selecting a "used" item.... which was actually a display item in a music store in Texas. I got free shipping and somehow it was here in TWO DAYS, brand new, wrapped up, not a scratch or dust or anything on it, owners manual, cord etc. I got this $800 + (suggested retail)amplifier for half price! Awesome amplifier. Lovin Amazon.com !
