The AC30 is the original British sound of the 60's Vox amplifiers. Classis guitar versions is something else.
does it work with my ukulele? Dec 8, 2013
James The Vox AC30 will work with any instrument that has a standard jack. If your ukulele has a pick up built in then your good to go. This unit is designed to emulate a crunchy guitar amp so if you are OK with that sound then this will work.
Well, it doesn't have its own speaker so it can't work by itself. But if you have a portable computer speaker that is self-powered, you should be able to connect that to the amPlug and hear what you're playing. But since there's no speaker, you either need a speaker or a pair of headphones for it to work :)
can it pug in the back of my korg pa3x keyboard nad work with my wireless headphones and wich one should i get? ,thx Jun 26, 2014
No, it's only made for a guitar because of the controls on it. Also as far as I know it has no wireless capability. Vox probably makes one not sure the product name. Sorry, hope this helps you.
Yes, it is stereo. I tested it by putting a stereo signal into the amPlug's aux input and varying the left and right channel signal levels; output to the headphones matched the inputs stereo signal. Keep in mind that while the output is stereo, the built-in 1/4" plug is mono, so output from a guitar would be a mono signal into both left and right channels.
The jack is an 1/8 inch plug so any standard headphones will work.
How does this unit compare with the much less expensive Joyo. They look almost identical. Dec 11, 2013
There are a lot of headphone amps out there and many of them have similar styling, where the unit plugs directly into the guitar without a cable in between. If you want to know how they compare, I would compare the reviews. I haven't tried the Joyo but I will say that the reviews don't look very good. I've been pretty happy with my Vox though. So I would guess that having similarly-styled housings are where the similarities end.
Absolutely, it does! The thing about the ac30 amplug it that it responds extremely well to picking dynamics. So if you are a light picker your sound will come out very soft and clean, especially if you keep the gain at around 4 and the tone around 4 or 5. Also when you really attack the strings as in the style of Hendrix it gives you a truly nice and natural overdrive tone. I like mine alot and practice with it daily.
