Jimmy Page used the VOX AC30/6 Combo Amplifier in the studio with the Yardbirds.

From a July 1977 Steve Rosen Interview
(I used VOX) AC-30 (amps). They've held up consistently well. .....You could get these one's with special treble boosters on the back which is what I had.

Page has also said that he has used the AC30 amps during Led Zeppelin, although it is unknown when. In a July 1986 Guitar World interview, engineer Eddie Kramer said that he believed that Page used a VOX AC30 amp for the Houses Of The Holy sessions at Stargroves in May 1972.

He also brought out (2) AC30/6 Combo Amplifiers for both the 1995 and 1998 Page/Plant tours and in the studio for the tremolo section of When The World Was Young from Walking Into Clarksdale.
