Whose sound best epitomizes the Vox "chime"

Pretty new to the board and see the "Vox chime" referred to more than the Marshall sound (not sure what word is used for Marshall in the place of chime).

Since you all seem to have a sound in mind, I'm wondering whose it is. Brian May? Old Clapton? Is there a youtube video or other link to the perfect example of "Vox chime."

Or will the answer be similar to US Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart's 1964 declaration when trying to define "hard-core" pornography, or what is obscene, by saying, "I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced . . . ut I know it when I see it . . . ."?

I believe I'm correct in assuming that "Ticket to Ride" by the Beatles was recorded with AC-30's. That song, to me, has chime in spades.

in the P&W genre, most Hillsong/Hillsong United features Vox/Matchless chime, and Chris Tomlin's guitarist Daniel Carson uses AC30s

There are a couple tracks on Radiohead's new album "In Rainbows" where Johnny Greenwood and Ed O'brien have some nice vox chime w/ tele neck pickups. I've always loved the way they seem to find great tone in very accessible and practical places.
