Description

1965 Vox AC30 Tube Amp w/ Factory Top Boost

Vox are one of the most iconic brands in the music industry, built to the highest quality and becoming extremely collectable in the modern market.

This 1965 Vox AC30 is complete with the legendary factory “Top Boost” circuitry and a pair of original silver bulldog speakers! This unit sounds nothing short of spectacular, with the incredibly dynamic, touch sensitive responsiveness, smooth tube saturation and glassy clarity that has made this amp one of the most sought after of all time.

The list of AC30 enthusiasts is endless, with a story that began with the Shadows and quickly grew to include players such as the Beatles, U2, Queen and countless others.  This amp delivers both the detailed cleans and midrange rich tube overdrive that are the hallmarks of the AC30 tone, not to mention providing fantastic vibrato and tremolo on the third pair of inputs!

Service History

 

We pride ourselves on the inspection, authentication, and service of each amplifier to UK standards and regulations.

 

Please note that it is the philosophy of The Music Locker to keep all amplifiers as original as possible, only changing original components when absolutely necessary. This includes valves, capacitors, transformers, potentiometers, etc. This gives the buyer the option of tailoring to their exact needs, and may mean that the amplifier is not operating at optimum performance levels. Therefore, your personal preference may differ, depending on your circumstances (i.e. collector or musician), and you may decide to service the amplifier in more depth upon receiving. The Music Locker cannot accept responsibility for any costs of refurbishment to a standard different to the one advertised.

 

Cosmetic Inspection

 

We struggle to find anything worth mentioning other than the obvious scuffs & wear to the amps covering, this amp is 50+ years old & has the stories to go with it.

Please have a close look at the high resolution photographs below, as these form part of our description.

 

Originality

In our opinion, the important parts of this amplifier are original, with a few internal components changed.
