In the early 1960s, everything in the music world was changing. Many guitarists were asking for more treble and bass response from their VOX® AC-30* amplifiers. The VOX®* engineers heard the call and added an active tone control circuit with separate bass and treble controls called “brilliance unit” at the time. Today it is known as Top Boost circuitry.
This model is an amp simulator based on the sound characteristics of the legendary 1964 VOX®* AC-30 Top Boost* combo (BRILLIANT channel). The right output features a fine-tuned cab simulator, based on the sound characteristics of the original VOX AC30* cabinet with two 12-inch CelestionTM Silver Bell* speakers. We added a MASTER control for greater convenience and tonal flexibility.
