Catch up with my musings on music and everything else in the world of Valve Amplifiers

A new Hello

A new hello to everyone visiting my website , had to happen , myself being dragged into the 21st centuary technology . For a time I resisted (being of the steam driven age) but sensibility prevailed and here we are and there'll be a lot to say , having remained "Schtum" all these years .  The site may be new , but not the products . The first  "JAYTRONICS" products were built back in 1981 in London . back then , one would attempt designing and building anything and everything that was a part of  musical amplification using Valves , Transistors and I.C.'s  (Integrated Circuits) .    Todays world is much different , cost effectiveness , feasability , viability are ALL important for so called commercial success .  I'll always remember an early incident , when having moved over to Ireland in 1985  , and visiting a local music shop in Tralee , having introduced myself  to the staff  (re- my trade)  and being asked could I build and supply  " Lookalikes "  of a simple 4 ch. mixer-amplifier for LESS than the Japaneese imports trade price  --- I suppose they had to ask !! .     So here we are today 33 years later having gone through designing and building all manner of amplification , P.A. Systems , Disco Systems , Instrument Amps. of all sorts plus Peripheral equipment , et all .  I've chosen to specialise in guitar valve amps.  , which is my first love in the  electronics industry , incidentally I do still make Solid State amps on the rare occasion that necessity requires it . As we know it they tend to be cost effective , there's that lovely word again  . See you soon  . J.T.
