Vintage 1964 Vox AC30 Treble Copper Woden Valve Amplifier Combo

Vintage 1964 Vox AC30 Treble Copper Woden Valve Amplifier Combo

This is the AC30 of legends. Introduced in the spring of 1964, this ‘Treble’ version has been the backline of many legendary albums and performances. The brown-backed grill cloth, charcoal covering, brass vents, radiused back edge, amongst many other indicators, show this to be the Spring ’64 model. This particular amplifier was purchased from the original owner in Sheffield, UK. He’d owned it since new, and had used it for many gigs throughout his gigging days. It had been sat in the corner of his room since the 1980s, after the Woden transformer blew. When we purchased it, we had the original transformer rewound, and a gifted tech give it a twice over. It is now back to its full potential, and absolutely sings! This is, therefore, an uncirculated 1964 Vox AC30, with the original ‘egg’ pedal.

The majority of the WIMA components are still there, along with the original matched set of Woden transformers, and 1777 cones. There are only a small amount of changes on this, including the three handles (no Vox markings), fuse holder, mains lead (modern replacement), jack input for an external speaker cabinet, chassis mounted smoothing capacitor, GZ34 (now JJ), and the output valves. Of the 4x ECC83s and 1x ECC82 all, apart from one JJ, are the original Mullards! It is relatively untouched on the circuit board, with only a small amount of components changed over the years. Cosmetically, it is in good condition, as pictured. There are a few light scuffs to the tolex, most notably underneath where the tolex has come off completely, and the grill cloth is slightly sagging. The rarity of this amplifier makes this a real collectors amplifier!

It is the philosophy of The Music Locker to keep all items as original as possible, only changing original components when absolutely necessary. This includes valves, capacitors, transformers, potentiometers, frets, etc. This gives the buyer the option of tailoring to their exact needs, and may mean that the item is not operating at optimum performance levels.
