Best to my knowledge, this is an AC4 that is identical to the AC2.
 VOX change the name of the AC2 to an AC4 in Dec 61 but kept the design the same.
In mid 1962 the AC4 cabinet was redesigned.


It also makes this amp rare as it was only in production for about 6 months

 VOX AC4 history on youtube

-------------------------------------------

 I was lucky to came across this amp.
It had been stored away, probably since the 1960's with a faulty mains transformer.

It had a 5 amp round pin plug fitted to the mains lead.

Everything about the the amp was totally original.

Upon testing we found the mains transformer was fault on one of the secondary windings.


The decision we made was to have the original mains transformer sent away to be rewound to the original spec ,
 to keep the amp as all original as possible.

The amp was taken to Dave of Rosewell Amps
 

All the valves were tested and found to be in excellent condition.

Everything else was tested and found to be OK and in tolerance.

When the rewound transformer came back it was fitted and the amp was given a full check and test
All work well and sounds great, including the tremolo

The original Elac speaker had a tiny hole which has been repaired

It has had NO parts replaced other than the mains transformer windings.

As you can see by the pictures it has unfortunately had a splash of emulsion paint.

 The speaker cloth could be replaced with some vintage VOX cloth but again we have left it original.

Original cosmetic condition we have given it a light cleaning and dust out.


As you can see from the many pictures it is in good condition for it's age

There are a few minor marks here and there but nothing major 

Please look at resolution photos I have posted and make your own minds up regarding its condition.

This is an amazing sounding amp and really has the classic VOX sound of the 60's.
