VOX Amps AC30S1

VOX Amps is here in Nash with a sweet, stripped-down version of the legendary AC30. Called the AC30S1, the all-tube amp (two 12AX7s for the preamp and four EL84s for the power amp) has a single-channel design based on the top boost channel of the AC30, onboard digital reverb to simulate a classic spring reverb, effects send/return, and is outfitted with a single Celestion 12" driver.

An overachieving overdrive that gets way bigger than its name suggests.

Sweet balanced crunch tones. Dynamic. Sparkling, full, and clean at attenuated guitar volume. High-quality build.

Pretty expensive.

$249

Overdrive pedals don’t often set my world alight—even great ones. But I’ve spent a month with the England-built Great Eastern FX Small Speaker Overdrive, and it remains attached to the other end of my coil-y cable. Ostensibly, the Small Speaker is meant to be a variation on the tweed-Fender-Champ-in-a-box theme. However, both the pedal’s name and the Champ associations fail to do justice to how large and alive it sounds and feels tethered to a bigger amp.
