COVERS FOR VOX SOLID STATE AMPS
Conquerors, Defiants, Supremes; Dynamic, Foundation and Super Foundation Bass
With the advent of the solid state amps in 1967, a new style logo made its appearance: no more than a slight change - an ovoid container in white surrounding "VOX" - but a change nonetheless.
On the left, the old style logo. The new logo is also to be found on AC30 and AC50 covers produced after 1967, as well as those covers for PA equipment issued as part of the solid state range. The presence of the white ovoid container helps sort out "early" covers from "late" ones (which are sometimes paired up by later owners with earlier amps that had lost their originals).
An overview of Vox covers in the period 1964-1967 can be found on this page of the Vox AC100 website.
A "new old stock" Conqueror cover. Inside the chalked numbers: 67734. Last image - Supreme, Conqueror, and AC50 covers assembled.
An early Conqueror rig in covers - the one for the cab the original, the one for the amp the new one. The cab's cover fits over the side stands.
Defiant serial no. 1102. Covers again fit over the side stands. On the amp we have a cover from a UL715 or UL730.
Unlike the covers made for the American Super Beatle (last two images), covers for the British Supreme fit over the trolley. The cover for the amp shown above needs a little restitching, but is otherwise fine.
Supreme serial number 2231.
Dynamic Bass no. 1135.
A great Foundation Bass set up, all covers present, along with the cab's hang tag. Probably a Vox Sound Limited (VSL) amp, produced 1970-1972.

Quick snaps of a loose Gyrotone 1 cover, no gyrotone to go with it at the moment. It is 18" tall and measures (round the hem) 21" x 25 1/2". There are openings for handles low down on both sides..
