"The first track you hear is a ’66 Telecaster into a mid-’60s Vox Berkeley, which is a solid-state Vox with reverb. It’s a weird-sounding amp, but of course it can’t be all bad because the Beatles used it. The sound of that amp, that guitar, and the weird reverb was really dark and strange."more
I've always loved the trapezoidal looks of the American made Vox amps. Yes, the Beatles only used them on the final U.S. tour in '66, but they used solid state gear to record in the mid 60's and it sounded great. This amp is old (or vintage) paired with it's cab it looks fantastic. All the detail you'd ever need is on the Vox Showroom site. It plays fine (and foot-switch works and they are hard to find), but has a bit of a hum and needs tweaking (which I'm told can be done). It is loud and bright.
