Vocals into the Selmer 300, 2 outputs routed, 1 to each guitar Vox AC30, doubling as a PAAlso notice the strange Bass amp between Jimmy Bowden's and Bob Barber's Vox AC30's. "Our manager bought it for us, it was a 30 Watt valve amp with 2 x 12" speakers; one in the front and one in the back. At least that's how it seemed to work best. Not side to side as suggested. We never knew the Brand. I was sure happy to get my AC 30 soon after."
