Thought I'd add info about some of the amps Keith(and the others) used during late 1966 - early 69. My favourite era of the band!
PART ONE: Between the Buttons
During the early moths of 1967 The Rolling Stones as well as The Beatles and The Hollies, were given a whole new backline of the latest all solid state Vox amplifiers.
For a few years Vox had been experimenting with the use of solid state technology which allowed for the use of a variety of on board effects in the amps such as tremolo, fuzz/distortion, top boost and the new 3-position MRB(mid range boost) which had a set range of tones similar to their ground breaking wah wah pedal.
They had previously issued The Beatles, The Hollies and The Troggs with Vox's UL- 7 Series amplifiers which were a combination of both valve and solid state technology.
I am unaware of when Vox issued these amps to the stones, or if the band actually bought them, but the band can be seen using them during their UK tour in Autumn 1966 and during the Olympic Studio sessions for Between the Buttons.
It looks like Keith used the UL-760 live and in the studio, but there is the possibility that he would have used the smaller UL-730 for studio work during the Between the Buttons sessions, but this is just speculation on my part.
These amps appear to have been retired following some tv appearances in January - February 1967 and the introduction of the latest all solid state amps courtesy of Vox.
