condition: good
make / manufacturer: JMI Vox
model name / number: Vox AC 30 TB
This is a 1965 Grey panel JMI Vox AC30 head with the factory add on Top Boost.
I've owned this amp for a very long time and now it's time to pass it on to someone who can love it and use it like I have.
I recorded and gigged with this amp and it never let me down.
About 30 years ago I installed a fan to keep the transformers from self-destruction.
The transformers and most of the other parts are all original.
The only thing I ever replaced were the tubes as needed and 1 volume pot - that's it.
Many Vox lovers says that the 1965 grey panel was the best sounding AC 30 of all-time.
I tend to agree as I have owned several AC 30s over the years, including a 1991 reissue which sounded pretty good but not as sweet and punchy as this one.
This thing smoked my 50 watt 800 Marshall amps. It's the loudest 30 watt amp you'll ever hear.
Please take a look at the pictures and if you have any questions feel free to call me.
There aren't many of these originals left (in head form) that have the original transformers and sound this good.
Please don't waste my time if you are not serious about buying this amp.
I will not ship this amp, that's why it's not on Reverb or Ebay and if I did have it on Reverb or Ebay I would have to ask more for it because of the outrageous fees.
I prefer to have the buyer come play through it and pay me cash for it.
No checks, no bank transfers, cash that's it!
