That's a fantastic score though. $100? Wow. Off the back of a truck, or was the seller dopesick?

Those are great amps at higher prices than what you paid. Shit.

I'd not realised how cheap these have been. Kind of an ideal all-rounder amp.
At 3x what you paid being more usual pre owned ;) I'm certainly thinking of replacing my 'shitty ss amp collection' with a 410 deville, or i guess 212. Lots of headroom, bass, usable drive. Good for bass recording too so might even exchange that.
Hear the deluxe version has more 'single speaker' sound vs deville, i. E. More mids and concise vs deeper bass and spacial sound. I def prefer more than one speaker for recording but its pretty much same amp otherwise.

yeah it's the same amp. I prefer recording with smaller amps. I've had more success with peavey classic 30's and pro jr's than with ac30's especially dialing in my sound.

I had a Hot Rod Deluxe many years ago when I bought my first true tube amp in my first stint on guitar, after many years as a bass player. My beef with the HRD was that it went into crunch territory way too fast. I recall by the time I got to 2 or 3 on the volume knob the amp was at max, both in terms of volume and distortion. I was playing with a mega-loud drummer at the time and needed more headroom so I got a DeLuxe Deville. It had the opposite problem, as it was extremely loud and would only break up at a volume that would kill people. In the end I scored a Deluxe Reverb that seems to fit the sweet spot between volume and breakup.

Everyone has their own goal when it comes to Sound but that sounds off.. Are you comparing USA to USA? Or USA to China? Or? Which AC30? What Speakers?
