Here for sale is a truly super condition (Pre-Wem) 1963 Watkins Westminster 10w tremolo combo. Clean as a whistle, serviced and sounding great. It has a full complement of original Mullard valves & original Elac alnico speaker and a great tremolo circuit. In perfect working order & apart from a replaced handle 100% original. A really great old boy with that real retro vibe! These Westminsters are really superb recording amps.
Dating from 1963, these Westminster combos have been the preferred go-to amp in the studio, often outclassing vastly more expensive vintage Fender, Vox and Marshall amps from the same era.
Sonically it’s a beauty amp, just close your eyes and listen – the sound is unmistakably that of a quality handbuilt vintage valve amp – rich, warm, huge tones with great break-up when pushed hard. This little 10w amp has all the right components brought together in one of Charlie Watkins best amp designs.
It sounds fabulous, is a joy to play through and an absolute revelation when recording, sounding bigger and more expensive than it’s diminutive stature suggests. In short, a belter of an amp that’s not so loud that you can’t use it for great tone at home – delivering sweet creamy valve tones at living room levels.
There are two inputs and controls for Volume, Tone and Tremolo Speed & comes with original footswitch.
In excellent all-round cosmetic condition.
