United Kingdom Vox advertisement for all instruments: guitar, bass, keyboards and ampifiers. This was placed at a time when demand for Vox instruments (due to association with the British beat-boom bands: Beatles, Stones etc) was at an all-time high, yet the small Dartford factory was unable (and in some cases unequipped) to deal with the demand. It features British-built Continental organ, amplifiers (AC30 and AC100) and solid-body Phantom VI guitar, and one Italian-built instrument, the semi-acoustic Cougar bass - in this case produced by Crucianelli. As the 1960s proceeded more and more Vox guitars would be built in Italy, though mostly by Eko, and for export to the United States. Organs and amplifiers for the US were then built by Thomas Organ, Sepulveda, California.
It stands to reason... groups olike the Beatles, the Animals and dozens of others wouldn't chose Vox unless it was the most responsive and most reliable equipment available. Vox guitars, amplifiers and microphones are QUALITY BUILT
