1963 Vega Model a63
The Vega Company was founded in 1881 in Boston Massachusetts by Julius Nelson, his brother Carl, and a group of associates that included John Pahn and John Swenson. Over their history, Vega produced many different musical instruments including horns, guitars, banjos, mandolins as well as tube amplifiers.
The Vega Model a63 shows the masterful craftsmanship you would expect from a company that was manufacturing amps since the 1930's. The a63 is based on the Valco Supro Supreme Model 1600 design. Valco contracted with several companies during the 1960's and based on our research and measurement cross referencing, we believe that Vega was indeed one of the several companies Valco worked with. This amp design and others based on the same design are used in top musical studios around the world for recording stringed instruments. The smooth and silky tube sound and favorable clean high headroom and tube overdriven sounds make it a desirable amp for all genres.
