    so my framus is meant to be based on an AC30 (on paper the specs look similiar) and ive heard some AC30ish characteristices in the tone and whilst i have played AC30s...never got a chance to directly compare the two...until now...

    Clean Channel VS Normal Channel


    Top Boost Channel VS Lead Channel


    defntiely some similiar characteristics in the cleans, the framus being smoother/warmer/bassier and the vox being brighter/glassier
    gain channels are diffrent with the framus having a stupid amout of gain that completely bypasses crunch too quick.

    heres what the framus lead can sound like...

    To me, they are most alike on the clean setting. On the dirty side, I think the AC30 sounds much fuller and warmer. The framus sounding thinner, more compressed and a little buzzy. I don't even think it was close on the dirt side.

    on first listen to that clip i can defnitely agree from what you said, but have a listen again. the framus eq really affects the gain (the first knob is gain, then followed by bass and you can hear it beef up for the split second i had it on)

    but yeah there is a big difference in gain/between the two (the framus having more preamp high gain that get stupid fizzy above 12)...i basically only use that channel for leads (it is labelled a lead channel haha(
    ...and use a different single channel amp (one without an fx loop) for pure balls out crunch rhythm.
