Offered for sale is this rare British-made WEM Powercat valve (tube) amp 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 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.

Please see detailed photos below.
