***RIDICULOUSLY LOW PRICE FOR URGENT SALE*** Similar Spec Vox Selling for £1600 + Call or text 077384 33629 with sensible offers or questions Late 1970’s Original Vox AC30 Tube Amp w/ Factory Top Boost and Original JMI vibrato/tremolo foot switch controller. Hello there, I hope you are well and happy Christmas! You're looking at my late 1970’s (est. 1976-1978) Vox AC30 which is complete with the legendary factory "Top Boost" circuitry and a pair of rare sought after Vox Blue speakers! (see complete information below) The amp sounds utterly amazing, with that iconic AC30 classic tube saturation and crunch. I am a professional session guitarist and have used my AC30 for mainly studio recording sessions. Because of the amazing tone of the vintage amp, many producers and engineers I’ve worked with have been like a kid in a sweet shop when working with the amp due to it’s great sound. She has featured on many albums and singles in her time! Speakers Ultra rare Classic Vox blue speakers / Celestian T530 circa (1964/5 put the date) I don’t need to tell you that these are very sought after by AC30 tone aficionados. The speakers on their own are selling for £900 on ebay ! Speaker spec: G12 Type 8 ohm Both Cones: 34/H1777 17KH on the edge. Circa. 1964/5 Product Info Watts: 30 watts Valves: (5) x ECC83 , (4) x EL84, (1) x ECC82, (1) x GZ34 Transformers: Original Woden Voltage Selector: 115v - 245v Selector Footswitch: Original 'Egg' Footswitch Cosmetic Condition The grill cloth has no rips unlike many other vintage AC30’s for sale it hasn’t been replaced with a new cover and is 100% original. I struggle to find anything worth mentioning other than the obvious scuffs & wear to the amps covering. This vintage amp is 40+ years old. Professional Re-valve and Full Service Professionally re-valved and serviced by Steve Parry Musical Electronic Repairs B'ham. No shoddy home mods here! Goes without saying because I have just paid for the amp to be re-valved and serviced you can be assured it has been fully tested, inspected and is in fantastic sound condition. She is sounding even better than the day she left the Vox factory thanks to the sought after Vox Blue speakers, revalve and unique gain mod. Highly Desirable Gain Mod The stock lowest tremolo speed on the vintage AC30 has been a subject of love it or hate it for many Vox amp fans. 1 of the features of this amp you are looking at that made me snap her up when I brought her is the utterly brilliant tremolo speed mod she has. A skilled amp technician has converted the tremolo speed pot into a master volume. Benefit to you? The amp can distort without the face melting volume. Dating This Vox Dating VOX products is known to be very difficult as VOX did not observe standard dating procedures. The serial numbers don’t even give a concrete date in many cirumstances. Dating is therefore done by various amp features such as coverings, control knobs etc… Amongst other things from the chassis and grill colour, metal main switch and Vox Limited name on the back plate, this AC30 has been dated around 1977. Summary This is a rare collectible exceptional condition 1970’s AC30. This AC30 will increase in value year on year, so you can enjoy it as an investment you can also have hours of playing fun on. I will be extremely sad to say goodbye to my fantastic vintage Vox AC30 friend, but I’m sure you will give her a lovely home and enjoy her for many years to come as much as I have.
