Not a Beatles nut, but do dig them, and IIRC Vox amps were the mainstays.

What model I couldn't tell ya.

There is a great book called Beatles Gear.  It is exhaustively researched, and could probably tell you exactly what was going on there.  Unfortunately, I loaned my copy to someone, or I would go look right now.  I'll let you know if I ever get it back.
