.... where in a blind taste test, you'd be hard pressed to tell any difference?
The Vox TBX or CC. A stock TBX came in second place in a blind test against a slew of vintage ones, with the listeners being the owners of all the vintage amps! I like the CC even more than the TBXs. Guys bitched about the transformers used in the TBX, so vox spent a ton of money cloning the best vintage ones they could find. The CC is my fave AC 30 ever built..... where in a blind taste test, you'd be hard pressed to tell any difference?
Alright Tag, I have to ask this. I am not trying to stir up a fight, this is an honest questionVox is a tough one like Dumble, as I have never heard any other clone NAIL the Vox tone. Just Vox!

Other than legal ownership of the name "Vox", what separates a current production AC30 from the various clones? Is there some technology, manufacturing process, or source material that the owners of the Vox name have that others don't? What is Vox doing that the cloners aren't doing (or can't do)?
Yep. I feel differently. The AC30 CC NAILS vintage Vox tones. If you prefer different transformers, then you prefer that to a trure vintage Vox sound. Nothing wrong with that, but its not vintage Vox anymore. I have A/bd them with a HWRI as well. The CC nails the vintage Vox tones EASILY, at all volumes, and does MORE as well. Vox hit the nail on the head.IMO the stock AC30CC o/p transformer is crap.Get it on a gig and crank it.It just doesn't hold up all that well IMO.Change it to a MM Woden or Radio Spare and step back.It makes the amp sound like the real deal.Of course you may feel differently but I feel if you were to play mine side by side with your stock AC30 you would hear a big difference.
