The VOX U.S. Thomas Organ V1141 'Super Beatle' Amplifier was used during the Coverdale-Page EMI CD recording sessions in Vancouver, June 1991. The owner learned Jimmy Page was in Vancouver and that he wanted a high powered VOX amplifier for the Coverdale Page sessions at the legendary Little Mountain Sound Studios. The owner being a musician, studio owner, and huge Led Zeppelin/Jimmy Page fan himself, contacted Jimmy's technician (JS), at Little Mountain and offered the amp to Jimmy over the weekend. The following Monday, Jimmy's tech called and said that Jimmy absolutely loved the amp, and was interested in buying or renting it for the session. The owner said he wanted to keep the amp but offered to lend it to Jimmy for the duration of the recording. After three months, Jimmy's tech called and said they were finished with the amp, and that he could come down to pick it up. The Tech said the amp had been used extensively on the record, on about half the songs.

Manufactured under license from JMI (VOX) England, by Thomas Organ Co. in California ca. 1966.
