❌SOLD❌ Watkins Dominator Mark 1 V Front Amplifier Reissue

❌SOLD❌ Watkins Dominator Mark 1 V Front Amplifier Reissue

One of only 100 built – the Watkins Dominator Mark 1 V Front Amplifier Reissue! The Watkins Dominator was bleeding edge for 1956, and its blistering 18 watts and two ten inch speakers struck fear in to the hearts of many promoters. The concept of the V-front is to widen the sonic field, rather than focus it straight ahead. Though it was rapidly pushed off stage by other much higher powered amplifiers, the Dominator was used extensively in studios during the 1960’s and was apparently the basis for the 18-watt Marshall combo design.
