To add to this, IK Multimedia is doing a sale on Brian May tone emulations and that includes an AC30 and the little Deacy.Isn't Brian May's tone at least on some of the recordings attributed to "the Deacy" amp, a solid state amp built back in the day by John Deacon? It's been a while, but I think I read for practicality purposes he uses Vox amps live, but has had replica Deacy amps built for recording purposes. Still has the original, reverse engineered...in a vault, triple locked, inside another vault, hounds of hell standing guard.
Greatest being totally subjective and not necessarily relevant outside of serving the song/project at hand, +1 for Brian May's tone on many of the Queen recordings.
I think Brian used a few stacks of the AC 30s for live work, I dont know about his studio set up...To add to this, IK Multimedia is doing a sale on Brian May tone emulations and that includes an AC30 and the little Deacy.
If nobody plays live and is only recording, I’d snatch that right up. $30 for two different amps emulating amazing tones? If I didn’t buy that Vox recently I’d get it.
I can’t speak on Amplitube’s Vox emulation yet until I test out mine vs theirs, but their Fender emulations (and there are tons of options) are insanely good.
Oh, and those emulations were personally approved by May.
