Don Butler also makes a perfect rear panel Top Boost for your vintage Vox AC-30. Highly recommended! His knowledge of Vox amps is deep and he is a great amp tech. Great band too!
Oh yeah, we were discussing that in an amp tech thread. Cool. I'm sure the PP unit is great. Is your AC-30 a normal, bass or treble model? How do you like the TB sound?Thanks. I was able to get a rear panel Top Boost for my '63 AC30 from Mohave /Plexi Palace in less than a week. I would have have liked to try the toneman Top Boost but the wait was prohibitive. When I inquired back in November, the wait for the Top Boost was longer than the Rangemaster..... I'm a career player and need to put my AC30 to work.
Thanks for the phone number. I left a message.

Definitely sounds like there is an issue. If you are jumpering channels, i.e. brilliant and normal, then the phasey sounds are normal because the 2 channels are out of phase after the TB unit is installed.The jury is still out on the added top boost for my 1963 AC30 head. As it is currently installed, I'm not digging it and prefer the sound of the non TB amp on the bright channel. I'm not sure but I believe mine is a treble model. I'm fortunate to have Komet Amplification right down the street so Hogy is checking it out. He has a '64 TB head that a great one to compare to. Mine is very harsh, has a strange almost notch-filtered effect to it, and almost phasey sounding. If he can't get it to sound better I'm going back to stock.
Thanks T for the update on Don Butler. Tell him I'm pumped about the pedal and can't wait to put it to work.
I know you wrote your inquiry in "2008" BUT this is just for those who may read it and not know about Don Butler. I will stand behind Don as a super honest, credible man who knows his stuff! He has worked on some of the biggest names in the business. He started out many moons ago working at Cerwin Vega in North Hollywood I beiieve. He has worked on all but one of my newer amps and did awesome work. I would not hesitate to send your amp or guitar repair needs to him. He works from home so he is available BUT that said, he can get busy and does gig as an active musician. Super people Don is and a wonderful wife too bootHas anyone spoken with or heard from Toneman Don Butler. I bought a rangemaster clone from him two months ago and haven't heard anything since. I've e-mailed but no replies. Is he OK? Anyone know?
