SERVICING OF A c1962 WATKINS DOMINATOR COMBO AMPLIFIER

 

 

 

"Hi people! Yet another repair/service on an amplifier before being offered for sale on EBay.

This beautiful Good 'Ole British Watkins "V-Fronted" Dominator came through the workshop fairly recently for a good check-up/service before being offered for sale on EBay. It needed almost all of the old capacitors changing (as most of them do!), but the electrolytic's were all fine. A couple of tube changes were made and all came to rights.

I love these old amps, and they always sound great (when working correctly). There's not much else to tell/say other than after it had had a good general service, which included spraying all the pots and valve bases, checking fuses etc, replacing the few tired valves (tubes), it worked great. Nice condition too! It will be interesting to see how much it fetches on EBay!

All interest in my work and site is always appreciated. 

Cheers, John."
