Look nice.

Word of warning on Voxs in general - you put them on 2, and they're already stupidly loud for most venues.

Are you sure?... I supposed it was like that too, even if I've read many opinions saying "you need blue alnicos to reach edge's sound".

What do you mean for blue and silver? Rola-Celestion G12, Blue "Vox", Greenbacks, Celestion blue alnico... There's a bunch of different speakers mounted on ac30 over the years!!

Anyway all kind of blue speakers have a brilliant clear sound even at high volume while the silvers are more throaty and easy to crunch. So I think edge uses the blue for the main sound and the silver for all those stereo delays, modulations or shimmering sound tricks.

For a TB, what are some good settings to get Boy/October/War era tones? I don't mean the driven tones, but the cleaner tones. Just a-wondering.

Is changing the tubes quite difficult in an AC30?
