First, you see it. A glowing deep purple wood with a glossy finish. Your interest peaks. You get closer. Aahhh, tea stained hemp fabric covering two 12 inch speakers. You touch the case. Your heart is racing. What could be under this lid labeled Juma? You unlatch the fasteners that you've never seen in your life. You lift the lid off and there it is. Two shining chrome chassis, six tubes, three knobs, three cylinders covering transformers, all set on top of a carved out, solid aluminum block. You turn the first knob. A heavy, gliding click into 24 positions of separately set resistors for volume, trebel and bass. The tubes start to glow, yet you still hear nothing. Is it really on? Then you play. The sweetness that you feel from this work of art, is now pouring your notes across the room. You start to tweak the knobs. The beast starts growling. You are in control. Or is it taking on a life of its own? You then decide that you will never regret your decision to bring one of these masterpieces into your home.
The Juma amplifier is separated from the speaker cabinet with isolation cones. To minimize speaker vibrations to the amplifier. The speaker cabinet houses a pair of 12" Celestion Alnico Blue 'Bulldogs'. We used Alnico for its musical attributes. The speaker enclosure is sealed and damped for lower end extension.
