I only bought the amp because it reminded me of my
college days. I did electronics at college, and our lab technician called Gordon
Spurr was a valve amp fanatic who came from Liverpool and knew The Beatles.
He had one of these AC12's complete with the original ribbon mike. He would always tell us that it was the very amp that the students union bought for The Quarrymen. He had been given it to repair in the early sixties and it was never collected. He also had an identical Selmer version, apparently Selmer took over RSA and re-badged the AC12 series and continued making them?
It was a great story, I have no idea if it was true, but he was a great guy.
