VOX TRAVELLER AMPLIFIERS

Jennings Musical Industries (JMI) 1967-1968

Click for a larger image. On the left, the Traveller - "for the travelling man...". On the right, a prototype Virtuoso - note the position of the footswitch socket, and the lamps on top of the panel.

Pricelist from April 1967. The Traveller cost the princely sum of £61 and 19 shillings.

  • Serial numbers are first given in the form xxxx; then ST--xxxx, and for the last runs of amps, xxxx.
  • Logos are either "VOX" or "VOX. Solid State".
  • Lettering is in silver first, then gold.
  • Note that because relatively few Travellers were made, changes apparently come in more quickly - so by 1042 (below) we already have "Solid State" in the logo.

Serial number 1019 - currently in the USA

One of the earliest, if not the earliest, surviving Traveller. Thanks to Mark for the pictures.

A great Traveller. The mains transformer has been replaced, and the speaker is now a Celestion blue rather than a 7442, but condition is superb. Thanks to Phil for the pictures.

Two sets of pics (two sales on ebay some time ago) - the first showing the new sockets and control for the fuzz and vibrato on the back panel in a rough and ready state; in the second set, everything nicely worked in.

A great little Traveller. Probably the first of a a short run of Vox Sound Equipment Ltd amps. Note that the logo is now "VOX" again, not "VOX, Solid State".
