Here's something very special - a Watkins Dominator Mark 1 V Front Amplifier Reissue in Dansette Red. Hand built in the UK by John Beer, of Amp-Fix in Devon, UK with the full approval (and signature!) of Charlie Watkins, the original builder, this is number 37 of 100 built. The amp design closely follows the original Watkins Mark 1 circuitry, with improvements for current safety standards; the redesign was done by Chris Uff of English Valve Amps.

We also have Amp number 035/100, in Retro Blue.

This amplifier is a highly detailed reproduction with its Art Deco styled birch ply cabinet and original colour schemes. Parts that were unavailable, down to the knobs and Watkins logos, have been re-manufactured to match the originals. The circuit uses two EL84 output tubes (valves), three ECC83 preamp tubes, and an EZ81 rectifier tube, and uses traditional turret board construction methods.

Comes with a cover that matches the Dansette Red finish. Includes footswitch.
