Gibson praises Vox AC30
According to the company, the guitar amp has been used by many legendary artists over the years, including Pete Townshend of The Who, Brian May of Queen and the Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl.
However, it said that as the genre grew in popularity, bands such as The Shadows started to demand more powerful guitar amplifiers and asked Vox to build such a device.
This marked the birth of the AC30, a model described by Gibson as a more "versatile and rocking" alternative to its predecessors.
Other famous AC30 users include The Edge of U2, Justin Hayward from the Moody Blues, Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones and late Irish guitarist Rory Gallagher.Posted on 14 Sep 2009 14:00 to category : Instruments News
