Vox AC-30HW2V64 Hand Wired Amp with 1964 Style Cabinet by North Coast Music




"The new HandWired VOX is in a different league. There’s palpably more headroom, touch sensitivity and dynamics: all of the things that classic minded ‘feel’ players get misty eyed about. Like kids watching fireworks, there are uncontrollable oohs and ahhs from the amp buffs as you open the rear panel. Beautiful livery on the outside, and meticulous hand-wiring on the inside.

....these are the best sounding post-sixties AC15s and AC30s amps yet."

Guitarist Magazine, December 2010 (UK guitar publication)

The AC30HW2 features point to point hand wired construction throughout. There are no copper circuit traces interconnecting electrical components. Please view the chassis picture at left to view the meticulous and tidy construction techniques used in manufacturing this amplifier.

The chassis for the AC30HW2V64 features two channels. Channel one is the "Normal" channel, and has two inputs and a "Bright" switch. Channel two is the "Top Boost" channel and has dual inputs, volume, treble, and bass controls, and a "Hot/Cool" switch. Using the "Hot" position on this switch increases the gain of the amp. This gain boost may also be remotely actuated using the single button VFS-1 foot switch, an included accessory with the amplifier.

This amp does not have tremolo or reverb.

North Coast Music replaced the original 3/4" nine ply factory cabinet with a custom hand-crafted enclosure constructed completely from 3/4" thick, 13 ply cross laminated baltic birch plywood. This was the same premium quality plywood that was used to construct all AC-30s cabinets built from 1960 through 1968. The Vox AC-30 cabinet by North Coast also features half lap lock joints and a bolted baffle. It is covered in black basket weave vinyl and genuine brown Vox diamond grill cloth.

This cabinet will not be sold as a separate item, it will only be offered as a part of a package with an AC30HW2 amp.
