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.
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?
You're implying things but this is just an area where there really isn't any objectivity. If he likes the aforementioned amps and doesn't like AC30s as much, there's literally no way you can say he's wrong.
...is there even such thing as a made in USA AC30?
The point being, objectively that if you compare a big multiple speaker amp as AC30 vs. The peavey and pro jr as small single speaker....
Well they are totally different amps.
So objectively its not a direct comparison.
And admittedly i possibly come to the opposite conclusion as i had a single speaker ac30! But i also have a single speaker yamaha now for more direct comparison.
Admittedly ac30s take a lot more of the mic positioning. Almost every live sound engineer would have to stick it at the edge of the speaker. And i put a mic behind it usually to add depth.
They yamaha needs less dialing in but i find i NEED either a second mic near the edge or one behind, for rhythm sounds.
The effect of two is basically that you can point it at the cone and the off axis sound will come through in a kind of natural way.
So if you got whatever 5-10 ac30 vox variant, and then tried a Fender Bassman head, a huge amp... Maybe it would be the opposite. Just very different tones at the preamp really, and different speaker types.
