Have been looking into getting my hands on a second hand AC30, and keep reading different things on the models/speakers available.
Im looking at the newer models with the master volume as opposed to any older/vintage amps. A lot lot of people saying that the Chinese Alnico Blue speakers are not great,but others saying they are fine/can’t tell much difference? Other people advising to go for the Greenback option, but in general all are saying to stay away from the wharfdale’s.
Anyone on here care to weigh in?
Also, one of the reasons I’m looking for one is to downsize slightly for some upcoming gigs where I need to travel a bit lighter if possible, so I had also looked into AC15’s. I’m a bit worried about lack of headroom with the 15’s though - is this misplaced? Will the 15 be get more than loud enough for small/medium gigs, stay clean enough and take pedals? I’ve got a small 15 watt amp for bedroom playing which gets kind of farty with the volume cranked for gig levels (although I’m guessing this is a lot to do with the small, 10” speaker as much as anything else).
