"Matt Bellamy's favorite recording amps are the vintage Vox AC30s from 1964 and 1970. The '64 in particular because of the extreme spike of its Top Boost. Instead of using the old 'fragile and too high maintenance' vintage AC30s on tour, Bellamy switches them out for newer AC30s. Bellamy uses the AC30 for his core sound and then mixes in his other amps to mix things up around it.more

Basically what I'm running is this: MJ Mirage Guitar through: -ErnieBall Volume pedal -Digitech Wammy pedal -Morley Bad Horsie 2 Wah pedal Through: -GCX switcher system with these pedals in the loops: -Keeley compressor -Boss Autowah -Boss OC-2 octave -MXR EVH phaser -Fuzz pedal(used for one song I think it's a Zvex or a clone of one) (Also the preamps of both Splawns are in their own loop) Then one of loops feed off into: -Rocktron Replifex thru -Line 6 (green) rackmount delay -stereo out of delay into: -2 Vox AC30 custom classics set up clean and into the top boost channels…"more
"I use the AC30 custom classic" Freddie says at 0:15. "There's just a certain heritage to the way they look and sound. It's just one of the best," says Freddie Cowan, at around 0:40 in this video, in which he talks about The Vaccines relationship with Vox amplifiers and how both guitar players in the band use Vox amps.more
Except for a limited run of AC30HWs, the Vox AC30CCH 30W Custom Classic Head hasn't been around since the days of the Fab Four. 2 blendable channels feature fully variable tremolo with footswitchability, a custom EQ switch on the Top Boost channel, and Brilliant switch on the Normal channel. Spring reverb with dwell switch, footswitchability, and tone control; plus an effects loop with full bypass and level control give you precision command over a broad range of sounds. Boutique features include switchable cathode bias for lower power and longer tube life plus switchable smoothing filter values for looser or tighter feel. Baltic birch cab, vintage-style transformers, tone cut control, and included dual footswitch. The first full-production AC30 head since 1967.
This one is the older custom classic model. One of the best amps I have ever had. I actually had two (one for backup). These were pretty cheap second hand but now as the became pretty rare, the prices has started to climb.... Great Vox tone, unmistakable British crunch, pedal-friendly platform.
