    What makes you think it's an AC30 at all? Just the AC in the title? Why would that indicate the guitar amp used? It's a good sound but I don't know that it sounds like an AC30...

    BTW - "Dark sounding" and "like a Vox" are not normally phrases we hear in the same sentence, hehe.

    I agree that it doesn't sound very AC30-ish to me at all. For a Vox to get that compressed you'd hear their power tubes adding the characteristic Vox chime. To my ears, it's not there.

    I'd guess a POD doing a Fender blackface, or a guitar plugged direct, overdriving a tube mic preamp/compressor or something along those lines.

    Hm maybe you're rigth , I just think it has some AC30ish to it
    The new cc models voicing, but obviusly Im not at all sure about it

    Its not harsh or compressed enought to be a Twin i think
    Some fender amp , a bassman on steroids or something like that maybe

    It doesnt sound like a pod to me , It does the mids too well and big

    i think it's a patch from spectrasonics trilogy ROMpler.
    basically, it's samples from a bass guitar played up high on the fretboard and processed. i use trilogy all the time, but usually restrict it to bass registers.
    clever programming, no?
