Last issue, I focused on the most desirable and collectible U. Until Marshall came along inmost of the models produced in the U. Most guitarists in the country during this era, including those in bands that later became famous, grew up playing ELbased amps from Watkins and Selmer. When they became more famous, they graduated to Vox, Hiwatt, and Marshall.

We therefore do not intend to go too deep into the history of the Watkins Electrical Music Ltd, as we have attempted to do on the Selmer site, because this is already well covered elsewhere. At the present, we do not also want to stray off into the realms of the WEM PA systems that were so famous in the late 's and 70's. We are both guitar players, and so let's concentrate on instrument amps only for now. The PA's and speaker systems may come later.
The UK has birthed its fair share of noteworthy guitar amp manufacturers in the last century. However, despite promising starts, some of these have never made the impact that, Vox or Marshall has. Selmer was, in fact, the first-ever of its kind.
