Like title states, I'm looking for tags like the ones in picture attached, not whole boards, just the metal. It is possible to score it someware?

I've never seen them mate, but have you ever tried eyelets? I bought some lengths of walnut from eBay and a load of eyelets and it's my favourite method by far. The problem with those tags is that you have to bend the leads to get them in the tags which makes it awkward and it can end up looking untidy, but with eyelets you can just bend them 90 degrees and drop it straight in. It's makes things much easier and better looking I think.

Yeah, eyelets are cool, but no-no for VOX AC30 :)

That would be totally cool if you could find some of those, I love that style of tagboard. Never seen anything like it for sale though, other than ground lugs that would need to be seriously modded to work on a board like eyelets.

AFAIK it is UK based company who's making these. Anyone know the name of them? Perhaps I could contact them and ask for some...

No but they seem to be a good source who could possibly get them

I don't know if you can get the terminals alone but you'd probably want to look for something like this.

Check Mouser for the Keystone F-1M. They're... uhh... half of what you want. They also have the F-5M... EOL, though.

I looked. I don't believe Keystone makes the full tags.

I've always thought that those style of tagboards look really cool in guitar amps, especially for Vox AC 30s, Eyelet boards look cool too, Fender used to use them in their Valve Amps (do they still use them?) such as the Bassman and the Twin Reverb, I soooooo need to get back into amp building..... :thumbsup
