Super clean 50th anniversary AC30, only 500 of these were made in 2007. Minimal play time, never gigged.
To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of VOX guitar amplifiers in 2007, Vox first introduced the AC15H1TV, and later the same year, the AC30H2. As the ultimate collectible AC-30, Vox issued the AC30H2 in a mahogany enclosure. The amp used a EF86 preamp tube, the same valve used in Vox amps manufactured in the late 50s and early 60s. This tube had nearly become extinct until Electro Harmonix reissued it. This is one of the finest VOX amplifiers in the 50 year history of Vox.

Channel 1: EF86, It features two inputs wired in the traditional way that gives them a 6dB gain difference between them. A two-position BASS SHIFT switch is included, with position 1 voiced to the original vintage-correct bass response and position 2 voiced to tighten the bass response and reduce any muddiness during high volume use. The three-position BRILLIANCE SWITCH provides flat response when in the OFF position. Position 1 is a new position voiced like the early AC30 “Treble” amps, while position 2 is the original brilliance circuit, which acts as a dramatic bass cut. The EF86 Mode switch re-configures the EF86 valve from Pentode mode to Triode mode. Triode mode will give a lower gain tone with higher headroom. Pentode mode is the famed original mode and has a very sweet high gain tone with not very much headroom.
Channel 2: Like Channel 1, this channel includes two inputs wired with a 6 dB gain difference between them. The Treble and Bass controls are from the 1963 Top Boost circuit and are extremely interactive. Very minor adjustments of these controls can yield dramatic changes in tone color.
