British Line

The AC-50 "Small Box" Super Twin.

This is the amplifier The Beatles played at their first public performance in the United States. It is a single channel amplifier and has a AC-30 sized speaker cabinet which was modified by VOX to allow the inclusion of a high frequency horn - hence the fret cloth covering the entire front of the speaker cabinet. The horn is so large that the rear of the speaker cabinet has a cut out in the back panel to allow the horn to protrude through.
