How cool is this!

Dating from the early 1960s is this JMI Domino single-ended Class-A valve amplifier, which would probably put out 5 watts or so from its single EL-84 valve.

You will all know the significance of Tom Jennings and Dick Denney, and their JMI (Jennings Musical Instruments) company, which is most famous for the all-time classic Vox AC-4, AC-15 and AC-30 amplifiers. If you don't know much about him, spend a few minutes on Google - the men and their influence were astounding!

The most desired Vox amps are from the JMI period, which ended in the late 1960s, when JMI was wound up, and Vox amps underwent changes and were labelled 'a VOX product'. This Domino amplifier, one of their stripped-back budget amps, dates from this early period (probably 1961 or 1962).

Just one volume and one tone control! Valve rectified (Mullard EZ-80) power supply, feeding a 12AX7 pre-amp stage and a single-ended (pure Class-A) EL-84 output.

I tried this head with several speaker boxes, and it really came to life when feeding speakers with a low power rating, such as the cool 1x12" MSP Hi-Flux we sold recently. See the amp pictured with this box at the bottom of the 'more pictures' page (link below).

This is a really cool, very rare vintage British amplifier, and is perfect to get that authentic overdriven valve sound in your home studio, or simply to put on display in your collection!

The amp weighs a mere 5kg, and measures 52cm(W) x 22cm(H) x 19cm(D).
