This particular Super Twin Reverb AC30/6 is in very excellent original condition and sounds absolutely spectacular. This matching head and cab piggyback set is the non-trolley variety, which was the more compact and attractive option. Perhaps the rarest mid-’60s AC30 model, this is the definitely the most deluxe version, with a separate cabinet and an amp head featuring factory Top Boost. Both VOX enthusiasts and tone fanatics will rejoice, as this is an incredible sounding exotic example.

This Vox AC30/6, Top Boost 30 Twin features: a rough black tolex, a grey control panel, black diamond grill cloth, silver Celestion (Bulldog) speakers, Parmeko transformers, non-original quartet of EL84 vacuum tubes, an original tag board strip with mostly original Mustard and WIMA capacitors and original hardware due to a couple changed caps only.
This amp is in surprisingly well-preserved original condition. It has been professionally modified with the ability to better arrange the speaker cable and footswitch. Aside from a pair of newer caps, all of the transformers, pots, and remaining 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.
