Vox at the British Musical Instrument Industries Trade Fair, 1966
22nd - 26th August
The key thing for Vox in the 1966 show was the new solid state line: the "Beatle" (later renamed Supreme), Defiant, Conqueror, Supreme (later renamed the Virtuoso), and Traveller for guitar; and the Super Foundation Bass, Foundation Bass and Dynamic Bass for bass. The Conqueror, in an early stage of development, is pictured in the article from "Beat Instrumental" magazine, below. For more on the pre-production solid state amps, see this page on the Vox Supreme website.
