Hi TB'ers. My son got me one for xmas but he got me the AC30 one by mistake. But before swapping it for the bass model I figured lets check it out. The AC30 sounds damn good with all my basses (they are all passive). The gain offers a very nice overdrive growl & the tone control has good versatility, rolled off w/the G&L (w/chromes) & Fender P w/rounds. Add some brightness w/the Ibanez Artcore w/rounds. And all the effects sound good too (there's 3 versions of each chorus, delay, verb & 2 tremolo's). I'm using Sennheiser 280's for my phones. I could see using this to record with, as long as the phones jack is adequate for use w/a mixer/interface. Still would like to get a bass version though, as it's got neat features too. My boy did good!
