Join us for an episode dedicated to the iconic sound of the VOX AC30 - the epitome of the British invasion!
The VOX AC30 has been the amplifier of choice for legendary artists and bands like Hank Marvin, The Beatles, Blackmore, U2, Gallagher, and Queen. In this episode, we delve deep into what makes the VOX AC30 so special and explore how it sets itself apart from classic Marshall and Fender amps. We'll also compare it to our BluGuitar AMP1, bringing you a side-by-side comparison of these legendary tones.
As a special guest, we are thrilled to have Uwe Jolly joining us, bringing his very own VOX AC30. Uwe has previously graced our show in episode 114, where we explored the world of Telecasters. His expertise and experience with the VOX AC30 will provide valuable insights and a firsthand demonstration of the amp's magic.
Don't miss out on this episode as we uncover the secrets behind the sound that shaped rock 'n' roll history. Tune in to experience the timeless beauty of the VOX AC30 and discover how it compares to our innovative BluGuitar AMP1. Get ready to be inspired and take your guitar playing to new heights!
