Mick Purchase’s tweaked WF-55

Mick’s first WF-55 was in a blue cabinet shown earlier in this gallery, and I persuaded Mick to sell me the cab.

“Since you acquired my blue cab for the WF-55, I’ve rebuilt it as a classic ’57 Champ complete with accurate Tweed cab and Jensen speaker. Chassis is bent up from a 250x250mm off-cut of aluminium. Great little amp and really looks the part. Improved the sparkle with a 2.2uF bypass cap on the first triode cathode, added 1k 3watt screen resistor; else all as per kit.”
