2003 Vox AC30/6 TBX Tube Guitar Amp 2x12 AC30 Top Boost, Korg Era UK-Made w/ Celestion Blues

$2,999.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2003 Vox AC30/6 TBX tube amplifier in excellent condition and in perfect working order, complete with a Vox-embroidered slip cover and "egg" footswitch. One of the most gigworthy and faithfully designed AC30 reissues ever produced, this amp is a genuine UK-made product, made during the "Korg era," when both Vox and Marshall had the same UK ownership. A six input, three channel design just like the iconic AC30s made by JMI in the early '60s, this Top Boost equipped model features a pair of Celestion Blue alnico speakers. Perfect for replicating the touch-sensitive, glassy cleans and overdriven sizzle and roar of the quad of EL84 power tubes, these speakers have ideal wattage handling and power for a dynamic, rich response.

The amp boasts individual Volume controls for each of the three channels, as well as Vox's signature "Tone Cut" treble roll off knob, with Treble and Bass controls that comprise the Top Boost portion of the circuit. Round things out with Vox's distinct footswitchable tremolo/vibrato effect and you have an amp that truly has a feel, response, and layout consistent with Vox's golden-era AC30 design. The circuit itself is very clean and original, and all of the Dagnall transformers are intact. Tubes include a quartet of JJ EL84s and matching GZ34 rectifier, along with all matching JJ tubes in the preamp as well.

The amp retains its original black basketweave tolex with gold piping and brown lattice grillcloth. There are some scuffs and typical small tears in the tolex particularly along the bottom front edge of the cabinet, while the grillcloth is notably clean. The amp retains all of its two-pin plastic corners as well as the original trio of handles, Vox logo, and black chicken head knobs on the immaculate faceplate. The original back plate noting the amp's UK construction is also present.

The amp comes complete with a Vox-branded slip cover and grey hammerite "egg" footswitch to engage the Tremolo/Vibrato.
