British Amplifiers announced that a limited edition Golden Anniversary re-issue of the Watkins Dominator V Front guitar amplifier has been introduced.

To celebrate 50 years of the Watkins Dominator, Charlie Watkins of WEM Watkins has licensed a production of 100 of these amplifiers to be built by British Amplifiers in a “Golden Anniverary” livery. Each of these special Dominators carries Charlie Watkins name signed on both the chassis and a letter of authenticity made out to each new owner.

 

Reissue Dominators are identical to the original with the only exceptions being those required to comply with modern safety standards. Small cosmetic details have not been overlooked, even the control knobs have been re-moulded to be identical and custom made transformers cloned from originals ensure that both the look and the sound have been faithfully re-created, according to the company.

 

A Mk1 series 2 Dominator (pre-printed circuit board) type has been selected as the model for the reissue. It is a valve tube amplifier using the original classic Watkins 17 Watt “Push Pull” circuit which has been utilised by many other makers and DIY amp builders ever since it first appeared. What sets the Dominator apart from other combo amps is the V front cabinet design.

 

To compliment the 1960's vintage valve tube amp sound, Electro Acoustic Limited have also developed a hand built 15 Watt 10" speaker with an AlNiCo magnet based on the original ELAC speakers as fitted to the 60's Dominators. These can be ordered as an upgrade to the regular version which is fitted with Celestion G10 Vintage speakers.


Reissue Watkins Dominators are available as either 230 Volt or 120 Volt versions.

 

Pricing & Availability

1199 GBP (around 1850 USDollars) for export, 1399 GBP including 17.5% VAT for European sales.

 

Optional extra upgrade to 2 × 15W Alnico Electro Acoustic speakers: 100 GBP (around 155 USDollars) export, or 117.50 GBP including 17.50% VAT.

 

Available now.
