The Edge's almost-original Vox AC30/6 from 1964, housed in a '70s cabinet on stage.

The Vox AC30 is a guitar amplifier manufactured by Vox.

It was introduced in 1958 to meet the growing demand for louder amplifiers.

However, the EL34-powered AC30 was short lived, and a new AC30 version appeared in late 1959.

This second generation AC30/4 had two channels with two inputs, hence the "4" in the model name, and a single tone control, and was powered by a quartet of EL84 (6BQ5) power tubes, making it truly a doubling of the AC15 power amp circuit.

The AC30/4 also carried over the AC15's preamplifier circuit, which included the EF86 pentode in its "Normal" channel.
