The Amp-Fix Links Page


The Owners Club
A fairly recent and interesting website for owners of w-e-m equipment or those just wondering what all the fuss is about.
Run by Gordon Heley who owns what must be one of the biggest collections of w-e-m equipment on the planet.
If you register, you can upload your own w-e-m equipment pictures, and view the many pictures other members have already uploaded.  There is a club forum if you have something to say or share with like minded people.







Champ Electronics is run by my friend and rival John Chambers, who undertakes all manner of valve amp repairs and restoration, besides some enormous self build projects.  A very interesting website for all valve heads, always something new going on there.  If you are in need of a special transformer, speak to John, he'll make you one!  If you need to contact John, I would point out that he is a night owl who works through the night so no point in ringing before 2.30 pm.  Click the link to see what John is up to now.

And a very very very very rare echo unit indeed !!

c1960 Selmer-Truvoice "Echo 400" Tape Echo

Having restored the cosmetics of this echo unit, it is my intention  (sometime during my retirement years ha ha) to restore the mechanics and electronics to full working order.  I have no schematics or service information on this model, if you have or know someone who has, I would be very grateful if you would contact me, with details etc.  Also if you have any publicity, pictures or other photographs it would be great if you would share them with me.  Have you ever seen another, used one, know anyone who did use one apart from Bert Weedon, do you have or know anyone who has one ???   Please please let me know. 

I now have another of these and may consider selling it, if you might be interested in making an offer, I'm all ears : )

Contact John Beer, details on the

BINSON echo units.  If you have a Binson drum in need of repair, I can recommend you to Lars- Goran from Sweeden.  If you want a special echo unit, he can make you one.  Shadows music he is an accomplished guitarist, who also built and pilots his own light aircraft.  All in all a very clever man


Doug Hoffman's site has lots of tube amp information, spares and interesting build it yourself projects.  Well worth a visit.
