Ok so a few months ago I got a Mesa Boogie Transtlantic TA-15. It does many things but its tone options include a cloned AC30 normal channel & top boost. To my ears, and others who own AC30, the TA-15 Vox tones sound very very similar and equally as good as a re-issue Vox AC30. It has all the jangle/chime of AC30 if you run it thru Celestion alnico speaker, or a Celestion Creamback. But TA-15 also has 5w, 15w and 25w options plus you can switch between normal and top boost channels. It also has master volume dial, has more gain on tap than an AC30 and only weighs 12 pounds. I've played/gigged AC30's and found them very limiting by not being able to switch between normal and top boost on the fly. In music I play I do a lot of switching between clean and overdrive/distortion tones mid song. I understand you can insert a jumper between the 2 jacks on AC30 but that just blends normal and top boost. I've never tried it but suspect that wouldn't provide anywhere near the gain boost I'd require. A better option is to use something like this as a channel switcher.... <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> But that's extra cost, extra set up, more cabling, more to go wrong etc. How have people who own AC15 / AC30 dealt with this issue ..... or do you all just play clean and don't switch from clean to overdrive on the fly. Overdrive/distortion pedals can be used obviously but I try to avoid those when an amp has better quality overdrive/distortion. TA-15 has solved these issues but I'm wondering what you Vox owners do. Also, while the Vox AC normal channel has many great uses I'm struggling to find a wide variety of uses for the top boost overdrive voice. I find the normal channel best for clean tones so I use that mostly. Yes, Queen, Ritchie Blackmore, U2 and sometimes Tom Petty (Mike Campbell) used top boost overdrive. But I don't play Queen, U2 or Deep Purple songs. So what other rock bands mostly used AC30 top boost overdrive ??
