    Hi,

    I'm looking for either a used Vox AC30CCH or a used Vox AC30HWH. I'm only looking for an Amp Head because I'm going to be running into a Motherload Elemental at home.
    Is there a massive difference between the two, apart from price? Also, is the Mercury Magnetics upgrade to the Vox AC30CC worth the money? Any thoughts appreciated.

    I think you're using the right word here. "Massive" is a good way to describe the difference in tone between those two models. :D

    If money is of no concern, go straight for the HWH, don't even think about it.

    Why is it that the hand-wired one sounds better, are they even the same circuit?

    They are different circuits, different construction methods and different components. All these factors heavily favour the handwired IMO.

    The HWs are very close in design to the originals whereas the CCs were not, which gives the new series a more desirable vintage sound.
