    What do you get when an AC-30 and a JTM45 have kids??

    The Baker is on the bridge pickup in SC mode. I have the volume on the gtr. at about 8 the whole time. I do not touch it during the demo.

    The BOR is just past the middle on the gain. It gets crazy!

    I am really digging this setup for rhythm/Vintage/jangly tones that get out of control.

    Oh, settings on the Vox are:
    Power- On
    Volume-Up just a little

    Fantastic tone!!! I don't think ZVex actually thinks the BoR sounds good with an AC30. That clip will prove that theory wrong. The BoR is still my favorite dirt box.

    Ya, this amp and pedal combo are absolutely beautiful. SUPER sensitive. It makes you just want to play sweet sounding, big beefy chords. TON of fun.

    I dragged home my Orange AD50 Handwired CS unit and you can hear it kick in at the end of this clip. That is a whole other story. For a 2 amp rig, this is just fantastic.

    My BoR sounds great with my 63 AC-30. It's a consistantly great sounding pedal.

    Of the many dirt pedals that I have owned, this is in my top 3 for sure. WAY transparent. As picky as I am, I am hearing a cranked Vox at pub volumes.

    Really happy with this setup.
