The look and sound of a Vox is absolutely unmistakable. Uniquely tied to the sound of the British Invasion, Vox amplifiers helped to usher in the sounds that would shape the world of popular music for decades to come. Still sought after today, owning a Vox is like owning your own special piece of history. Vox released its first guitar amplifier in 1958 to much success, but it was one year later, with the release of the iconic Vox AC30 that the company's place in history was solidified. These amps were on stage with the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, the Yardbirds, and countless other bands that revolutionized the sound of rock and roll forever. Other artists such as Brian May of Queen, Paul Weller of the Jam, Pete Townshend of the Who, Tom Petty, The Edge of U2 and more, adopted Vox amplifiers throughout the years as their legend continued to grow. Even today, a diverse group of musicians almost exclusively plug into these amazing amplifiers. Brian Fallon of Gaslight Anthem, Johnny Greenwood of Radiohead, Albert Hammond Jr. of the Strokes, Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria, Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, and Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World all swear by Vox amplifiers, and that's only scratching the surface.
Today, Vox make a large assortment of amplifiers that are perfect for nearly any situation. Are you a budget-conscious beginner who still wants that iconic Vox tone?
