PAUL MCCARTNEY STILL USES THE ELPICO A55 AMP HE BOUGHT WHEN HE WAS 14

Paul  McCartney still used a particular amplifier which he bought when he was 14 years old.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The ‘Little Green Amp’ is an Elpico A55, and was regularly sighted onstage with The Beatles in their earlier days. However, it was not a guitar amplifier by design – as McCartney pointed out in the featurette, noting that the amplifier had inputs for “anything but guitars really”.
 
 
 
 
 

Despite this, McCartney noted the amplifier’s fuzzy sounding qualities and considered the amplifier a “dear little thing from many years ago.”
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
The Elpico A55 is also recognised for its use on the Kinks’ You Really Got Me. The iconic distorted guitar sound was achieved through the mutilation of the A55’s speaker cone, although by whom is a hotly disputed topic. Members and brothers Dave Davies and Ray Davies both claim to have been behind the sound.
