Vox advertisement (1965) VOX: Sound of the Longhairs (Beatles)

When Beatles manager Brian Epstein made a deal with Vox to use their amplifiers exclusively, neither he nor Vox knew how big the band would become, and what an impact they would have on the music scene of the 1960s. But bothe Vox and the Beatles became absolutely massive. The Beatles used numerous Vox amplifiers; the AC 30, AC 50 and the AC 100 (pictured beneath the main image). Vox equipment was also used by numerous mid 60s British bands

Let your hair down, and go with the sound of VOX

This picture was probably taken in late 1963 - maybe the shortest haircuts at any point in their careers.....
