Yes folks it's 40 years in existence , albeit on a lesser scale than most companies , though having been making Audio / Musical Equipment of one sort or another since about 1964 , the first "Jaytronics" badged equipment was made in 1981 , many pieces of gear previously but no name applied , when I think back to what was made then , it beggars belief !
You see , in the 60's , we were all fed on a diet of " Camms Comics " as we refered to them , namely " Practical Wirteless " , " Practical Television " , " Wireless Wor;ld " and other monthly publications . As well as repairing Radios , TV's , Record Players and such like , one would ( on a Saturday ) visit all the Electronics surplus stores scattered about Greater London ( though mainly Central London ) and buy up ex Forces ( Army , Naval and Airforce ) equipment and other electronic bits and bobs . So gleaning info' from " Camms Comics " and few ( rare ) books available at that time , inspired one to experiment and build away . Mainly amps and very simple effects for guitarists , this approach carried on for a good few years and then later it dawned on me - I need a name , logo , badge call it what you will ! .
" Jaytronics " seemed so logical , so from 1981 everything made was badged " Jaytronics " . I shudder to think of the variety of equipment made , anything and everything to do with Audio / Musical applications , though never Video or Digital , even though having worked in companies that boasted Digital Electronics since late 1968 up to 1985 , it never entered my head to go that way , having been brought up in the Analogue World .
So fast forward to the present day though with some degree of hesitance noting the strange / wierd , days , weeks , months we're all going thru' , to play Gigs and Jam with other musicians just can't come quick enough , to put it simply ! .
Back to " Jaytronics " during this " Down-Time " I've been busy with some manufacturing of equipment for customers , some stock replacements and of course the repairs , modifications , servicing equipment and even splitting down a large bass combo ( made a good while back ) to an amp head and speaker cab for different purposes .
Currently in stock I have combo's and amp heads from 15 watts up to 200 watts , there is also a lovely sounding Valve Reverb unit plus a couple of 2 Ch. Valve Recording Pre's if anyone is interested !!! As always I welcome any inquiries as to custom building for clients .
Stay safe and as the government advises , don't wander off more than 500Km's - otherwise you'll be swimming !!!
