My reference towards Vox quality come from hearing my father rant about
what POS's they were when he had the service contract with Chuck Levin's
Washington Music Center, Giant Music etc.

Still when it comes down to overall amp selection the Beatles went for Loud and Clear using various guitars and attack to alter the tones.

Their speakers were overwhelmingly AlNiCos to get that sparkle and chime, but
the Rickenbackers also helped create that sound.

They also worked those semi hollow guitars from clean to right on the edge of feedback scream.

Reading how Paul once hacked used piano strings to use on the original Hofner used by Sutcliffe . It really shows the depth of their humble roots.

Brian Ray mentioned Paul really doesn't care that much about gear, he just expects it to work.
