Up for Sale is a
1968 Vox Nova Combo Amp!
1x8 "Gold" Oxford Speaker! Made In USA!
This is really cool. You are looking at a 1968 Vox Nova Combo "Ampliphonic" Amplifier. This amp was originally designed for Brass, Woodwind and String Instruments. It is a AWESOME guitar amp. Although it is solid state, the tone is much like a tube amp. Very Rare amp. Perfect Recording amp. 10 Watts. In addition to a two position "Dark/Bright" switch, the only other controls were a "Volume" and "Voice" control. The circuitry for Voice control was derived from the Vox "Tone X" control found on many Vox guitar amps, a sweepable frequency parametric tone control.
The Nova has that incredible distortion that makes these amps so sought after for recording and the warm beautiful fuzzy tail to the notes these are renown for. Sounds incredibly tube like, listen to any distorted guitar sound on any Beatles record from revolver and after to get an idea of what this amp is capable of. extremely wide range of tones and very versatile. very loud for its size! this amp is not some skeleton example with missing rare grille cloth and other important parts like some that have been available recently. these are quickly being snatched up by vox and vintage amp collectors due to their incredible rarity and amazing sound. Vox only produced these for a few months and it is a secret weapon of many top rank producers all over the world for incredible rich clean and overdriven guitar tones heard on so many records of the last 30 years. this is your opportunity to own a gem of an example of one of Vox's rarest amps from their golden years. these are already skyrocketing in value and are an investment piece if not an incredibly valuable tool for studio or live work.
