Watkins

1959 Westminster All Valve Amp Model 10/T

It’s hard to describe the unique sound that Watkins amps have when fully refurb'd, and this one shows its colours magnificently.
The Tremolo is out of this world in terms of range and sound and comes complete with an original Watkins foot switch.
A large majority of Watkins amps exhibit component values far away from their intended design values (HUNTS in particular) and these have all been replaced with high quality items including the multi-filter capacitor.
The valve compliment consist of:
2 x ECL82 Output valves – Mullard originals
1 x ECC83 Preamp Valve – Mullard original
1 x EZ80 Rectifier Valve – Mullard original
Speaker is its original ELAC ALNICO in brilliant condition.
All in all this is one for a studio / small venue and can only increased in popularity with guitarists.
VERY COLLECTABLE CONDITION.

Marshall

JCM2000 DSL401 40W Combo

I find it sad that this is one of Marshall’s most unloved combos due IMHO to the use of the fabulous sounding EL84 quad set of valves and Marshall lovers like their EL34s, etc.

Why it is not sought after more, when it sounds awesome and conjures up the likes of the well loved Vox AC30 and others who swear by the EL84 tonal qualities.

This amp has a full set of new JJs, both output and preamp.

It has an Analogue reverb tray that does the biz.

Dual footswitch, which governs the 3-modes of output namely CLEAN, OVERDRIVE 1 and 2.

All in all a superb amp in very good fettle that gives out a beautiful sound.

Watkins

Copicat Mark 1 late 1950s

This is one of the last Mk1’s before the well-known Mk2’s came into existence with push-button selectors and Gain controls.
Many informative sites on the web state that these Mk1’s were only produced in their 100’s and from the absence of seeing them for sale tends to back-up those statements
It has had an extensive refurb from the electronics side of things, which of course unless you just want to look at it, must be done for safety’s sake. It now has the 3 cable mains with Earth.
The faceplate is “as is” which shows it has not been sitting idly around for years.
All 3 valves are superb original Mullards (ECC83) with aluminium shrouds and clamps.
The heads still produce the expected sounds and have had a clean together with an applied magnetic degauss. It has a new tape fitted to-boot!
The selector switch gives 3 variants of echo, which, by turning up the Sustain causes warp speed sound to become apparent.
Controls are On/Off/ECHO – SUSTAIN – EFFECTS OFF, 1, 2, 3. There are inputs for Microphone and Instrument.
There is an original Watkins foot switch that came with it.
The cabinet is not thought to be the original one that the unit came with, but it does have all the trappings of a Mk1(always can tell the Mk1 and very early Mk2 by the small lid internal hinges). This has had a fairly neat recovering, which with the checked look makes it very unique.
