With just 100 being hand made in the UK using traditional skills and methods, demand is likely to be high. Each chassis will be personally
signed by the 'Father of Amplification', Mr. Charlie Watkins.
This pretty little boutique amp will no doubt become an almost unique
piece of history in years to come and a complete joy to use over the years.
These very special re-issues are built to order.

Back in 1960 when this amplifier was launched the price was £38.50 GBPounds.
Of course the value of money has changed a lot in the last 50 years.
Taking an average low paid UK workers wage of 1960, then calculating how many
hours they would work to buy a Dominator, we can work out today's equivalent price. Using todays minimum wage (UK), then applying the same number of hours, the relative price would be around £1320 GBP. So the relative price now is not so different to what it was fifty years ago!
