WATKINS / WEM AMPLIFIERS

THE WEM SAPPHIRE 100 (1978 to 1979)

 

 

A solid-state 100watt amplifier fitted with twin heavy duty 12" speakers. Single channel with only two inputs, but......with a "new concept in tone forming"! As well as controls for treble, bass, and presence, three further controls were fitted which controlled "Bass-on-Bass" and "Treble-on-Treble" (??). In addition to this a master volume and a compression control were included.

The amp seems to have had a short production period between1978 and 1979, when its price was a very reasonable 250.00.
