VAMPOWER / JOHNSON AMPLIFIERS - REPAIRS, STORIES, & INFORMATION 

 

Further Vampower information has surfaced and kindly submitted by Mark....thank you Mark

"Just seen your web site about Vampower - very interesting & brings back a lot of memories. In 1970 I was running a PCB manufacturing company called Circuit Dynamics which was based at that time in Beckenham (Clock House Area) and so located not far from Vampower in Bromley. My partner at the time had already established an electronics & transformer manufacturing company some years earlier (MWL Electronics) and he had been approached in 1970 - initially I think by SE Entertainments - to supply Vampower. Both companies then supplied electronic parts to Vamp (via Southeast Entertainments?) - namely PCB's, Silk-screened front panels and mains transformers. In 1970 Circuit Dynamics was a new PCB manufacturing start-up and I clearly remember our first production job was to manufacture the printed circuits for Dave Roffey and also reverse screen print the Vampower logos onto perspex (black & gold ink) which were later assembled onto all the amp & speaker cab fronts. I think that later on when the front panel design changed we also screen printed the black legend onto the brushed aluminium fronts. Regards, Mark."
