Even today, a diverse group of musicians almost exclusively plug into these amazing amplifiers.
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.
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.
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.
Marshall amps had such precedent-setting wattage and tone that their history can hardly be separated from the history of rock itself.
We recently wrote an article detailing that rich history (which you can read here), but for those simply looking to figure out how old their Marshall amp is, we offer this shortcut.
Boasting both a Normal and Top Boost channel, the AC15 Custom is an all-tube, EL84 driven workhorse that delivers 15 watts of authentic British tone into your choice of a genuine Celestion Greenback or Alnico Blue speaker.
The AC15 Custom also offers footswitchable spring reverb and classic VOX tremolo to enhance the already impressive sound.
The first Marshall amps were made in England starting in 1962.
