Very cool And I don't even like Vox lol.
Good for them. I am waiting for the punchline. As in $$$$$
Well, if they are pricing them like Marshall prices their hand wired amps...
Right ON. Love to see the pricing, but this is great.
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear oh DEAR!!!
I can't afford one - whatever the price(!), don't gig anymore, it's too big to fit in the bedroom and far too heavy to cart upstairs.
So I guess I''ll just have to order one!
I'd absolutely love one, but a bit difficult to hang on the wall next to my pink Strat though!
The JMI AC30s hand built in Doncaster (UK!) a few years ago were very good but didn't sell too well probably because of the involvement (I believe) of Ric Harrison of Music Ground.
I wonder if JMI had legal issues with VOX? I thought it was Marcus Hardy of Music Ground?
Did one of their politicians threaten them via Twitter?
Prices with the £...
Trump made UK industries great again with a £/$ almost 40% down from its top !
So American people would love Voxy for their price in usd very soon.
AC15 : $3,000 USD
AC30: $4,000 USD
I'm not surprised.
Hmm. So AC4 maybe $1000?
I don't think so; I am guessing at least $2,000 USD. British labor is more expensive than Chinese and Vietnamese labor.
But you can have this AC4 hand wired beauty, and retrofit a Celestion Blue, for <$1,000 USD.
I was able to (quickly) sell the stock Greenback for about $95 USD.
Good to see them being made here in the U.K. They'll get cheaper too as the £ falls further. We import a lot more than we export which isn't good of course. This country used to make a lot of great things. Now we make sandwiches and go to 'meetings' instead of going to work
Tell my boss that....
Of course, they'll cost a bajillion dollars...
Those prices are insane and a complete rip off. Randy Fay built me two amps, hand wired, premium parts, pine head cab, plus decent tubes, AC 15 front end, AC 30 or 15 back end, for less than $900 CAN/$675 USD.
Oh, he made a profit.
Ric Harrison used to own Music Ground (and may still do for all I know) and was prosecuted not so long ago for dubious stolen guitar activities at Music Ground as I understand things and I just assumed he was involved in JMI. That's why I said
..."probably because of the involvement (I believe) of Ric Harrison....."
Although I know/met Ric and I actually went to school with his brother Phil (who was in my brother's year) my knowledge of all his activities with Music Ground is far from complete!
Sadly this is fair comment I'm afraid.
It's lovely to see this these being UK built from an employment and a heritage point of view. I don't think they'll be any better for the geography though and if they're twice the price of the existing hand wired models, there no attraction to buy for me. Sadly
