AC30HW60 60th Anniversary Hand Wired Guitar Amplifier - Made in the UK - To commemorate their 60th Anniversary, Vox produced the limited edition AC30HW60 amplifier based on the circuitry and construction of the original 1964 JMI AC-30/6 Top Boost amp. Not only would the AC30HW60 recreate the original 1964 era point-to-point, hand-wired circuitry, the AC30HW60 would be made in the UK.

Like the 1964 JMI Vox AC-30/6, the AC30HW60 had six inputs and three channels: Vib/Trem, Normal, and Brilliant with "Top Boost." The Top Boost circuit added bass and treble controls to the Brilliant channel.

Like the 1964 JMI Vox AC-30/6, the AC30HW60 featured the complex "Vibravox" circuit in the Vib/Trem channel. Vibravox was unique in that it offered either tremolo or vibrato. While tremolo pulses the volume of the amp, vibrato varies the pitch of the signal. A two position panel mounted rotary switch on the AC30HW60 selected either tremolo or vibrato and a three position panel mounted rotary switch adjusted tremolo speed. A single button "egg" foot switch remotely turned the effect on and off.

Celestion produced a UK made, 8 ohm G12 alnico speaker in "period correct" silver paint for the AC30HW60 utilizing the correct Mueller H1777 cone. You can actually read the H1777 imprint on the cone of the speaker shown below and at left.
