The MC30 is the most versatile Gladius which joins 4 completely different amps in one unit.
Channel 1 is an AC30 with top boost that sounds very authentically! From Brian May up to Rory Gallagher this channel has the bell-like highs and the extremely fat and lively overdrive characteristics.
Channel 2 is the high input of the JTM 68 (for the description, see JTM68). Through the Stand-by switch (Presence/Boost switch) both channels can be played with and without negative feedback triggered by a foot pedal! The difference in sounds is extreme – from this perspective, the MC 30 is actually equipped with 4 totally different sounds!
Without feedback it has much more gain and sounds Vintage-fat. With feedback the tone is completely stable and dry and has considerably less gain – the undifferentiated sound of the Vintage amps is gone and the lows turn out to be crisp and lean. With the Rhythm-Lead function as well as with the two pre-amps you get 4 completely different amp sounds from one housing, which can be switched with a foot pedal and an AB-Box!
