  • Is there a smaller AC30 sounding amp?

    Looking for an AC30, but not as big and heavy as the Vox... needs to be 30 watts (already have the AC15).

    Is there something out there with the headroom of  the AC30, but a bit smaller?

    Dr. Z is the first thing that comes to mind.

      You can get Dr Z's as a 1x12 combo instead of a 2x12, so you'd have some weight savings there. 


      Finding a 1x12 vs. a 2x12 cab might be your only real weight-saving option. Generally speaking, smaller amp is smaller. Maybe find a head and some little cheap/light cab to plug it into?

    But it will sound waaay different.
    Fender 65 Deluxe Reverb may come close too.
    Trying to think of anything else without saying Two-Rock Studio Pro 35.
    It doesn't get any better than this

        Yea, I have never seen a 1x12 AC30 in the flesh... but its a little smaller 60 pounds vs 75 for the 2x12

         

        The AC30 head is crazy expensive, at $1200 seems a bit out of my range.

      I had an AC30 head (chinese made) a while back and OH. MY. GOD was that thing heavy. Don't go head and combo route if you're looking for portability.

        Yea, I was looking at the AC30 CC head and an Avatar cab (with blues). Figured I could use the Vox head at some gigs with a house cab... yea lugging the head and cab is a pain.

        The only other light option is the Mesa Transatlantic TA15... its only 12 pounds, and has 25 watts.

         

        If I could find a 50 pound (30 watt) combo, that would be ideal...

      akapuli, clearly you didn't read the OP's bump/new request two posts above my response.

      S'alright though. No ones perfect.

        why don't you just use the ac15? in your opening post you say you already have one. why do you need 30 watts? for clean headroom?
