Rare British-made WEM Powercat valve (tube) amp for sale in fully-restored condition and excellent working order.
These were only made for a short period of time in the mid sixties and are extremely hard to find: effectively an updated Joker, marrying a Dominator combo amp with Copicat – both valve units. This one’s had a fair bit of work to bring it up to scratch – the Copicat has had a full electrical and mechanical service, and the amp’s also had a full service. The power transformer was not correct/original and was not up to the correct spec; a replacement has been fitted and the difference is incredible. This vintage amp really rocks – superb tone and stunning break up – the original Goodmans speaker sounds superb. The tremolo is lovely – plenty of depth and no thump. Originally the Copicat was hard-wired, but we’ve fitted it with a short trailing lead for versatility – you can use it with another amp, or insert pedals in between the Copicat and amp. The Copicat plugs into the Tremolo channel – a fabulous combination effect.
The amp is loaded with original yellow print Mullard valves.
It’s a lovely amp and has been much-enjoyed in the studio, but it’s now time to pass it on.
This is a UK 240v mains-powered model and will require a step-up transformer for operation in countries with 110-117v mains supplies. The UK plug will be removed prior to shipping to countries with 240v mains supplies, unless otherwise requested.
