About
Finally, a group dedicated to some of the greatest amps in the world! All AC30 or AC15 owners, as well as owners of any other Vox amp/organ/wah are welcome to join!

Founded in the 1950's, the Jennigs Organ Company had a first success with the - especially for the time - innovational ac15 (AC meaning Amplifier Combo). After being renamed to "VOX" and the release of the famous ac30 amplifier, the company was the best selling amplifier manufacturer in the world and lead the British Invasion. The ac30 was and still is one of the greatest amplifiers in the world and is/was used by greats such as:

- The Edge (U2)
- Brian May (Queen)
- The Beatles (George Harrison had an ac30, Lennon an ac15)
- Eric Clapton
- Jeff Beck
- The Velvet Underground
- Jimmy Page
- The Kinks ("You Really Got Me" was an early example of the ac30's legendary tone)
- Mike Campbell (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers)
- Peter Buck (R.E.M.)

So, thank you Mr. Thomas Jennings and Mr. Dick Denney!
