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.
That is lovely xxx aesthetic perfection. Bet it sounds sweetHere’s the amp—MUCH chonkier than I thought it’d be. I thought it’d be like half the size that it is. Should have looked at the dimensions.View attachment 125519
I think Vox amps have a slightly smoother tone than the Marshalls, Hiwatts sound chunkierHere’s the amp—MUCH chonkier than I thought it’d be. I thought it’d be like half the size that it is. Should have looked at the dimensions.View attachment 125519
