Here is a vintage 1965 VOX AC30 Super Twin Reverb Top Boost (AC-30/6 S/T) electric guitar amplifier. Perhaps the most desirable 1960’s amplifier ever made, the AC30 has been showcased on some of the most famous recordings of all time, and has become synonymous with the tone of classic British rock. This particular Super Twin Reverb AC30/6 is in very excellent 100% all originalcondition, and sounds absolutely spectacular. This matching head and cab piggyback combo includes the original chrome trolley/stand, which is also in correspondingly excellent shape. Perhaps the rarest mid-’60s AC30 model, this is the definitely the most deluxe version, with a separate cabinet, an amp head featuring both factory Top Boost and Reverb, and a nicely configured chrome trolley stand, which attractively accommodates both. Both VOX enthusiasts and tone fanatics will rejoice, as this is an incredible sounding exotic example. Do not miss this opportunity to buy one of the best amps Jennings Musical Industries Ltd. had to offer, as this represents the undeniable pinnacle of quintessential British tone.

This Vox AC30/6, Super Reverb Twin features: a rough black tolex, a grey control panel, black diamond grill cloth, silver Celestion (Bulldog) speakers, a transitional combination of both Aldion and Woden transformers, an impressive collection of entirely original Mullard vacuum tubes, an original tag board strip with solely original Mustard and WIMA capacitors, a VOX “Egg” footswitch, and original hardware.
This amp is in surprisingly well-preserved original condition. All of the transformers, all pots, and all capacitors on the Westrex chassis are original and perfectly functional. The amp sounds incredible, and proudly performs amongst the best I have ever heard. With shimmering, chiming, pleasant tone, for which the AC/30 has become famous, it cuts in a very attractive and musical manner. Very loud, efficient, and boasting incredibly sweet headroom with tremendous overdrive, it is the only amp with amazing rhythm and lead tone, both of which sound great at all volumes. The Top Boost is widely acknowledged for creating an incredible dynamic, and really enhances the AC/30 all around. VOX isn’t particularly well known for their amp’s on-board effects, however, both the Vibrato and Tremolo sound fantastic. The reverb is a little stiff at the moment, and lacks the depth of a Hammond spring reverb. We’re not sure if this can be adjusted beyond it current state, however, we will attempt to work it out prior to a sale.
