NAMM 2007 Highlights: Vox Amps

2007 is, of course, the 50th anniversary of Vox Amplification, something we´ll be loudly celebrating in Guitarist and as well as the Limited Edition AC15H1TVL that we´ll be featuring in our next issue, a standard version is available. It´ll still feature a hand-wired construction but will offer a cream vinyl covering to the cabinet rather than the natural wood version of the limited edition amp.

Also launched is the new range of Classic Plus amps, 50- and 100-watt heads as well as a 50-watt 2x12 combo. Powered by an EL34-based tube complement that also includes a brace of ECC83s, each amp offers an ultra-cool vintage styling and plenty of classic Vox grunt through two independent channels. The heads, plus the associated 412 cabinet, will be available imminently, with the combo coming our way in April.
