In this video which is fairly recent, Keith shows a 1964 top boost AC30 and 1959 Tweed. If he was using a Vox at the Grammys, I would assume this would be the one.I saw that, too, and was surprised by what looked like a handwired AC30.
I'm not a Keith Urban fan, but enjoyed that article. He seems like a cool dude.http://www.guitarplayer.com/article/keith-urbans-traditional-tone-obsession/153353
59 High Power Twin and a Dumble Overdrive Special
He uses an Axe FX II for all delays and reverb now
Are you using the Fractal Audio Systems Axe-FX II for the ambient effects?
We use it for delays and specific ping-pong delays. There are songs I write, like Sweet Thing or When Summer Comes Around, that have specific timed delay hooks that are part of the riff, and without them the song doesnt work.

For sure, I agree. I'm not trying to sound like him at all.The thing is, regardless of what he's using... Marshall, 65Amps, Badcat/Matchless, Dumble, WHATEVER..... he always sounds the same. HE may be able to appreciate the difference as he uses the gear, but what comes out of the PA sounds the same, regardless... he's a player who KNOWS HOW TO USE HIS GEAR, regardless of what that gear is. David Grissom is the same way. MOST of the players we "ooh and ahh" over on this forum are the same way.
Get YOUR tone, no matter what you're playing through.
ALSO- FWIW, on this very forum, someone in the know (from Nashville) reported that on records, Keith uses all kinds of vintage stuff, his stuff, Dan Huff's stuff, whatever they feel like. So what you are hearing on the records is not what you are hearing live. (and, live, Keith uses a good bit more gain than he does in the studio)
