Refurbishment of a Westminster Mk IX carried out in May 2018.
The “Before” pics show how it was when I received it and the “After” pics show how it is now, after several days of refurbishment.
The amp section sounds great after having been checked over by a valve amp specialist, Ian Woledge, who replaced a couple of noisy components.
The amp is almost entirely original, including its original Mullard valves (2 x ECL82 and 1 x ECC83). The only non-original parts are –
- Replacement wooden frame to which the grill cloth is attached.
- Replacement inner grill cloth (underneath the original patterned cloth).
- New rubber feet on the side.
- New chrome ends on the handle.
The amp now looks as sweet as it sounds – and that’s sweet!!
