Historical piece. 1960 VOX AC-10 "Throwback" FAWN in nice condition.
This amp is very early version of AC-10 with FAWN vinyl covering making it much rarer than other AC-10s. First watch, this AC-10 looks like normal AC-10s but is not like other at all.
The circuit and control is completely from 50's Jennings G1/10. The Jennings G1/10 amplifier was produced in mid 1950's for organs and is former model of Vox AC-10. 50's left over electro parts were used to this "Throwback" AC-10 somehow in early 1960. built with an early 60's vox style split front with FAWN vinyl covering but slightly smaller size cabinet.
You could find same model in picture in Jim Elyea's "Vox Amplifiers JMI Years" Book, and was only one I could find another.
One volume and one tone controls on black control panel. Vibrato knob is on the masonite board back panel.
All Original except tubes and speaker. Original parts in great condition includes Fawn vinyl covering, vox logo, black plastic handle, brown diamond grill net, brass vents, black control panel with silk screen printed "JENNINGS MUSICAL INDUSTRIES, Ltd. DARTFORD KENT", Swedish style voltage selector, 50's white knobs, back serial plate from 1960, Radiospares main transformer, capacitors, and wooden foot switch for vibrato.
Unfortunately the original Richard Allan Plessey 10" speaker is not included. Speaker has been changed to Weber Blue AlNiCo 10" great reissue model.
Tubes layout is 2x EL84 power tubes, 2x EF86 pre tubes, ECC82 pre tubes for phase inverter, GZ34 rectifier tube (possibly only this model using GZ34 for 10W amp). 240V uses.
This is almost impossible to find this "Throwback AC-10" even in this fabulous and beautiful condition. Sounds very sweet and smooth, very best british tone. Great gear for collectors and players both.
