I sent back the Vox AC30CC head that I got from Musician's Friend. I wanted to but, I just couldn't like it. I thought they sounded pretty good when I first heard them in a store but, was a different story when I heard it in my house. The one I got from Musician's friend just didn't sound very good IMO! It appeared to be working fine - I just couldn't find any sounds in it that I thought were great - it was just so-so. Thank god for Musician's friend return policy. I a/b'd it with a Reverend Hellhound - both through a THD 212 cab - & clean or with overdrive pedals I thought the Hellhound sounded better all around for about half the price. Also, the Hellhound was alot quieter. The AC30CC hummed quite a bit. Maybe I just got a dud - I don't know but, I'm not going to chance it again. Let me say that the one I had was brand spanking new - the box had obviously never been opened. I kept it about a week, played it soft, very loud, moderate, etc. & just wasn't that impressed.
