1964 Vox AC50 MK1 Small Box
This particular version of the AC50 was only made for a few months – the crossover between the classic Diamond Input, Copper Panel, to the big box 2 channel AC50. The cap codes, serial number and modelling all date this to mid 1964.
Although we cannot prove this, the previous owner stated he purchased this from a charity who had been donated a tonne of Brian Jones’ Vox amplifiers back in the late 60s. As stated, we cannot prove this. We’ve tried to find as much information as possible to support this supposed owner but have had no luck. It would be extremely cool if it was the truth!
Serial Number: 1506
Valve Brands: 3x Mullard, 2x Electro Harmonix & 1x Unbranded & 1x Sovtek

Overall ‘excellent’ condition. There have been two extra jack sockets drilled to the back of the amplifier, and the original hole has been left open, as you can see. The original power cable has been changed for a newer IEC. The voltage selector has also been removed, meaning this is currently wired for UK voltage.
Please have a close look at the high resolution photographs below, as these form part of our description.
Internally and externally original, including transformers, except for minor service component changes i.e. caps, resistors, etc, the replaced choke, and the rewind on the D8869 transformer.
At The Music Locker we will do all we can for you to get the instrument you want. You’re more than welcome to come and have a play on this, coupled with one of our vintage guitars!
