He took all the tubes out and ran his amps in solid state mode.

I believe they are EL34s in his Marshall's and I say this just based on his raw tone.

I'm guessing 240V 50z, which is our voltage in Australia.

From wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_Young

Angus and Malcolm Young both use Marshall amplifiers. The amps stacked behind Malcolm onstage are two original Marshall 100 watt heads, one 1966 JTM45/100 and one late Superbass from the late 1960s or early 1970s. Each head powers two 4 12 cabinets. Malcolm also uses custom-made Wizard amps on tour. Malcolm's main amp, since recording Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap in 1976, is a slightly modified Marshall Superbass from the late 1960s or the early 1970s. On Ballbreaker, he used a Marshall JTM45/100 with KT66s and a high B+ voltage (625 volts). In a recent interview with Marshall Law, Malcolm mentions his two favourite amps: a Superbass and old Super amp (JTM45/100).
On AC/DC's latest album, Black Ice, Malcolm stated that he used AmpliTube software on the tracks "Big Jack" and "Anything Goes".



Angus Young mainly uses the Marshall model 1959 100 watt Super Lead Plexi (reissued as the SLPX with the X denoting added, but bypassable features.) heads and model 1960 AX and BX 4x12 cabinets with Celestion G12M "Greenbacks".[10]
Angus tells Celestion speakers that:
“From High Voltage to Black Ice, it's been Celestion guitar speakers all the way.”
[10]
Angus Young has used JMP 50 and JTM 45 heads in the studio. He used JMP 50 most notably on Back In Black. Ballbreaker was almost all recorded with JTM 45's. Angus does have a black flag JMP50 and there is an isolation box under the stage during live performances with either a JTM 45 or JMP 50 running through them mixed with the onstage amplifiers to get the mix through the PA.
