Hi & Lo Inputs - VOX AC15/30

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs' started by Gretsch&Vox, Feb 3, 2012.

Do you discriminate between Hi & Low Inputs?

  1. No; it doesn't matter, I can't tell the difference in sound.

  2. Yes; it does matter and I use Hi or Low inputs to achieve a specific sound.

    My p-90s like the low input. Sounds more growly, less sizzle, but very warm and lots of mid.

    I put everything through the low input. I just like to be able to get it to stay cleaner at higher volumes..........

    Thanks for your contributions.

    My ears hear better clarity and bell-tone through the "Lo" input. I first noticed this on my old AC30TBX and currently with my AC15HW1(X). Even with low-output filtertrons and low-gain JJ ECC803S, this channel is the best way to get the sweetest clean sounds.

    I have an ac15 and 30, both UK tbx versions.
    I use the HI when using the ac15 and mostly use the LO when using the ac30, occasionally I'll use the HI in bigger venues.

    It's funny...when I first got my ac15 H2, I used the high on the ef86 channel for thick grind, and the low on the tb channel for clean chime.

    Now I use the lo on ef86 for thick clean and the high on tb for krraang grind.

    I have been using the low input to get more clean headroom on the HW2X with Ric hi-gains and usually the high input with Ric toaster pickups.

    I have used both inputs with a strat and like both, depending on what sound I want.
