Using an "old-school" split-panel design, the AC30VR offers two distinct channels—Normal and Overdrive—with the Overdrive channel adding a separate Gain knob. In addition, the overdrive Style button delivers two distinctive flavors.
Equipped with two custom-designed 12" Celestion speakers, the AC30VR delivers a roaring 30 watts of power. The Normal channel offers both Bass and Treble tone controls, along with a single Volume knob. A Gain knob has been added to the Overdrive channel, as well as a Middle control for more defined tone shaping. In the Master section, the AC30VR features a unique Tone Cut circuit knob for dampening the high-end frequencies. Master Reverb and Master Volume controls are also provided.
The AC30VR's back panel features an external speaker jack for use with an 8 Ohm extension cabinet. Using an extension cabinet will mute the internal speaker. Also provided is a jack for the optional Vox VFS2 dual footswitch (not included), which offers hands-free channel-switching and reverb on/off action.
