Replacement Amp Head Cabinets (no electronics included) for 1960's era Thomas Vox Buckingham Amp Heads - Do you have a Beatle/Super Beatle, Royal Guardsman, Buckingham, Westminster, or a Sovereign amp head in a beat up cabinet? This is just the thing to fix those "recover my amp" blues.
These amp head cabs, manufactured by North Coast Music, will make your old Thomas amp head look just like brand new. If you add up the current parts costs to replace the vinyl, grill, beadings, nameplates, handles, corners, and vents on your old head cab, you will find that there are almost $270 in parts before you start. For not very much more, you can have a completely new head cabinet.
Constructed of 13 ply baltic birch plywood, these new amp head cabs are lightweight and far more durable than their original counterparts. The cabinetry features the same lock joints and dado construction as used by Thomas Organ when they manufactured these cabinets in the 1960s.
North Coast Music worked to get all the details right. The amp head cabs feature six plastic injection molded vents made especially for this project that are 100% authentic to the originals. The heads also feature our NCM-030 Vox horizontal nameplate and the "solid state" (our part NCM-112) script with gold plated letters on the front panel. One pin corners are used throughout. A 1/4" 20 tee nut is installed in the inside bottom of the amp head to receive the wing bolt and "head to trolley" security bracket shown below. An NCM-103 "Thomas Vox" handle with brass handle loops is also included.
Every mounting hole is predrilled, and every hardware detail has been addressed so that the exchange of the electronics from your old cab to the new cab will be fast and easy.
North Coast Music is not providing a replacement head cabinet for the Berkeley series of amps, sorry. Additionally, a Berkeley chassis will not fit into this head enclosure.
