Up for sale, a Vox AC30 Hand-Wired edition model AC30HW2 in exceptional condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original slip cover and footswitch. In Vox's history, there may never have been a series of amps boasting such a lofty and pure sound as Vox's new Hand-Wired Series amps, which includes the AC30HW2 30 watt combo. The Vox Hand-Wired Series relies on the painstaking technique of turret board hand-wiring, a method requiring a high level of skill and craftsmanship. The result is wiring that's beautiful in its artistry and ensures an efficient signal path with minimal loss and no restriction in amplitude. In the AC30HW2, tubes, transformers, speakers, chassis, and custom parts all join together in an ideal state to deliver the richest and most powerful sonic experience - the ultimate Vox amp. Not bound by tradition, the Vox Hand-Wired Series also provides a variety of new functions that keep pace with the needs of today's artists. The result of the exacting craftsmanship of this AC30 is an amp that responds to the subtle nuances of the guitarist's touch. The natural character of the vacuum tubes are passed with perfect transparency to the upgraded 12" Celestion Blue alnico magnet speaker pair (essentially making this amp an AC30HW2X) noted for their sweet alnico chime and sizzle, warm body, and distinctive growl.

The AC30HW2 is a true all-tube amplifier, employing vacuum tubes in the preamp, power amp, and rectifier. The preamp uses three classic ECC83/12AX7 tubes, while the power stage uses a quartet of EL84s, along with a GZ34 rectifier tube. Combined, these three elements provide the vibrant, organic, and unmistakable tone that is the heart of the classic Vox sound.

The Vox Hand-Wired AC30HW2 amp preserves the traditional Vox two-channel design, providing a Top Boost channel and a Normal channel. True to form, the Top Boost channel delivers the legendary AC30 sound with a fully interactive tone stack. Vox has also added a new and unique Hot/Cool switch. The Cool setting produces the orthodox Top Boost sound, while the Hot setting bypasses the tone circuitry altogether to create a more pure sound to achieve richer gain. The controls for the Normal channel consist simply of a Volume knob, giving you a cleaner and more natural tube sound. In addition, this channel offers a Bright switch that adds emphasis to the upper harmonics of the tone when engaged.

Additional features include a Master Volume and an Output Power (OP) mode switch which lets you change the power amp's output level, delivering more detailed control over the gain/volume relationship, in turn providing more control over your sound. A MV/Bypass switch is also included, which completely bypasses the Master Volume section. This means that the legendary sound that has fascinated guitarists for more than 50 years can be faithfully reproduced, giving you a direct and pure high-gain tone.
