Here's a faithful re-creation of the legendary and highly collectible Blackface Super Reverb from the 1960s. Designed to sound as close to the original as possible, the ˜65 Reissues are assembled in Corona, California and feature Jensen speakers (One C12K for the Deluxe and two C12Ks for the Twin, four P10Rs for the Super and one C10R for the Princeton), Schumacher transformers, traditional tremolo and tube-driven reverb to create that classic, "Blackface" sound so many players desire.Amplifiers currently produced in China, Vietnam, and Indonesia. Vox Amplification is distributed in England and through the U. Tom Jennings was born on February 28, 1917 in Hackney England. The Vox Amplifier company was started by Tom Jennings and Dick Denney.The result of their work was introduced to the world in January of 1958.This amplifier, dubbed the AC1/15, marked the very first appearance of the VOX name on a guitar amplifier and thus began an institution that has thrived for nearly 60 years.Tonal Characteristics: Bright, scooped midrange that is known as the "Blackface" sound, pronounced "Wine Glass" highs from the Jensen speakers and a slightly more polite power amp for crystal cleans that can also be cranked for great overdriven tones.Who's it for: Players that love the original versions but are priced out of owning vintage amps, blues players, country players, rock players, guitarists trying to get classic "Blackface" sounds (a la Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer), American-made amp enthusiasts, traditionalists, avid Fender collectors.Later shortened to the AC15, this amplifier quickly became the choice of London’s top guitarists, including Vic Flick who used an AC15 on his iconic recording of the “James Bond Theme”.With Rock ‘n’ Roll on the rise in the spring of 1960, Dick Denney and the VOX crew quickly recognized that London’s up and coming bands were craving more power from their amplifiers.This is where he was inspired to go into music and did so after the war was over.In 1944, he formed his own business trading accordians and other musical instruments.
