Vox AC-100 Mk I "Thin Edge" Head Enclosure
AC-100 Bass Enclosure (or Vox T.100)

Knowing that they had no amplifiers that could compete with the power of the 80 watt Fender Showman, Vox started the development of 50 watt and 100 watt heads in 1963. The intent was to create amplifier heads that were loud yet simple and inexpensive to build. There would be just one channel and nothing more than volume, treble and bass controls. This resulted in the introduction of the Vox "AC-50 Mk I" and "AC-100 Mk I" amplifier heads.

One of the earliest adopters of the AC-100 Mk I head was Paul McCartney. McCartney took delivery of his in December 1963. His new amp head would accompany the Beatles to America in 1964 and was seen in the movie "A Hard Day's Night."

The cabinet for the AC-100 Mk I amp head was constructed of 3/8" plywood. As a result, many refer to this model as the "thin edge" AC-100 amp head.

Paul McCartney was also supplied a T.60 speaker cabinet. This early Vox T.60 speaker cabinet came equipped with a pair of 50 watt 15" speakers. In 1964, this 2x15" version of the T.60 speaker enclosure was renamed the "AC-100 Bass Enclosure" to better link the enclosure to the AC-100 amp head. A newer, lower powered version of T.60 speaker enclosure was then introduuced with 1x15" and 1x12" speaker to be used with a Vox T.60 head.

While Vox officially renamed the 2x15" 100 watt T.60 cabinet as the "AC-100 Bass Enclosure," Vox enthusiasts often refer to it as the "T.100."
