Good afternoon! I’m a bit late with this week’s #CoffeeAndKlon. There’s a couple of reasons why. And one of them does involve the Klon.

Shane over at In The Blues has finally (his words!) gotten his hands on a Vox AV30 hybrid amp to demo.
The Vox AV30 is an affordable two channel hybrid amp. It features a real valve preamp section and a solid state power amp section to keep the cost right down. There’s built-in modulation, delay and reverb settings – very handy if this is your first amp or your spare practice-at-home amp.
