Vintage 1965 Vox AC30 2×12 Bass Amplifier Combo One Owner Hessy w/ HP & Cover. This is a truly stunning original 1965 Vox AC30 with a complete history. Bynoe - who had recently passed away. He lived local to Frank's, in Huyton. The first date on this is early 1965, and it was actually from a bank not far from my house in Nottingham City Centre.Bynoe used this throughout his career and looked after it extremely well as you can see, including the original pedal, cover, castors, and even the'Thirty Twin' badge to the bottom right. The middle handle was removed by him for whatever reason, but kept in the back of the amplifier throughout.
You can see it comes with the amplifier. What I find rather strange about this amplifier is the top back panel... There is a Hessy's sticker to the panel, but this is an earlier panel, including the serial number. I was assured this was like it from brand new, and I truly believe that (most notably the sticker on it). The amplifier is a'bass' version which is much rarer than any other, and in my opinion much nicer sounding.
The Celestion G12 silver alnico's have the original 1777 cones in both, with no rubbing. There have been a few light replacements to the circuitboard from years of using, but nothing significant at all. All three original transformers work great, alongside a set of Mazda EL84 valves, Mullard GZ34 rectifier, Mazda ECC82, and a nice set of Brimar ECC83s. This has recently been serviced by a UK leading amplifier tech and it plays great!
