Notes It’s solid state with a wide range of tone controls. The amp dates from the late 1970s and appears in the “Sound Like WEM” leaflet dated July 1978. The drivers have a 1978 date code. The power section is very similar to the earlier ER100 and PA100 amps and the pre-amp section has a similar control set up as the GX40 and GX100 Bi-tone amps. The construction of the cab is fairly basic, made from chipboard, and doesn’t have the same strength as earlier WEM cabs made from ply.
