12-18-12: The 18 Watt site is back! If you're already a member you may have noticed some odd things happening over the past few days as we finished transferring and testing the site. The site has been completely rebuilt, to be more stable and secure than ever before. We've also rebuilt the gallery, and we'll be done soon rebuilding the Downloads section. Enjoy the 18 Watt site!

Thanks, 18watt.com

18Watt.com was created and exists for the specific purpose of discussing the Marshall 18W amplifier, as well as amplifiers based on or derived from the original Marshall 18W. So we can talk about anything from the original Marshall amp, to all kinds of variations, using parts of the original design combined with other ideas. The field is almost limitless, provided there is at least some clearly recognizable part of the original 'DNA' there - such as the preamp, PI or power amp. There's also a few other close members of the 18W's family, Watkins' Westminster and Dominator (which the 18W derived from), Marshall's 1930 10W Popular and the various Marshall 20W amps, including the 2061 that are covered here. For other kinds of amps, there are many great forums already out there on the net, which will usually be the best source of information. Please do not post questions for amps that are not 18W derived. Such posts will be deleted upon discovery. Also, it is requested that all questions related to any products from Weber VST (including kits, speakers, parts, etc) be directed to Weber's own forums.
