Vintage VOX Escort 30
The Vox Escort 30 amp featured a 30 watt solid state amplifier and a 12" Vox heavy duty speaker made by Fane. The amp had three channels, Fuzz, Normal and Brilliant. Each channel had a single input and a separate volume control.
Bass, Middle and Treble controls were included in the Brilliant channel. A Fuzz Level control was also included.
The amp also included a remote foot switch for the fuzz tone.
The back panel of the Escort 30 Lead was made of 1/4" thick masonite, painted black. The model name and voltage requirements were silk screened on the back panel.
The components that make up the power supply for the Escort 30 Lead (mains transformer, diode bridge, and filter capacitor) were screwed directly to the wood on the inside left side of the amplifier. This sort of construction would be unlikely to pass US electrical safety codes.
The Escort 30 amp remained in the Vox product line even after Rose Morris purchased Vox from Dallas Industries in 1979. As Rose Morris had not yet developed manufacturing facilities of their own, Dallas Industries continued to produce the Escort 30 under contract for Rose Morris in their Shoeburyness facilities.
