A distinctive Vox amp
Using 2 EL34 tubes in its power section, the AC50CP2 Classic Plus combo offers two independent, foot-switchable channels: Channel 1 offers the indelible chiming sounds of the legendary Vox AC30 amplifier and beyond, and Channel 2 offers a lead channel boasting Vox’s highest gain to date, from warm classic rock tones to those suitable for hard rock players seeking more aggressive tones. Channel 1 features the interactive, passive EQ of classic Vox Top Boost amps, along with Vox’s famous Tone Cut control which musically rolls off high end frequencies as the volume is increased.
This Vox rocks!
Channel 2 adds increased versatility with a specially-voiced EQ tailored to deliver tones ranging from classic rock and blues to high gain classic metal. Tone shaping controls added to Channel 2 include a Bright switch for boosting high-mid and upper frequencies at lower gain levels and a Fat switch which refocuses the guitar’s midrange response for a smoother, creamier gain perfectly suited for lead playing. An independent Presence Control combines the active power amp circuitry with the passive preamp circuitry for added bite and clarity even at the highest gain levels. The Presence control also acts as a high frequency filter when used at lower settings for sweeter, less aggressive preamp tone.
Switchable reverb, series FX loop, and more
This amp offers a high-quality footswitchable spring reverb with level control for each channel, as well as a versatile series effects loop with selectable level control (approx. +4 dBV and -10 dBV) and true bypass switching. For further connectivity, when the effects loop is switched off, the effects send remains active and may be used to output signal to another device such as a tuner or additional amplifier.
Direct sound options
The AC50CP2 includes a balanced XLR and unbalanced 1/4″ DI outputs with a switchable speaker-emulating low pass filter. This means you can record the amp direct, or run it straight into a PA system for maximum flexibility. The DI output was designed to provide consistent output level that is independent of the amp’s master volume control – perfect for recording cranked amp tone during late-night sessions.
