  • Hiwatt T20 Head

    Hiwatt T20 Head - "Carve your own sound!!"


    An excellent amp with a clean, very versatile sound. The settings (and especially the EQ) allow you to really carve your very own sound. However, it’s not a channel strip and the amp still has its own sonic identity. True to Hiwatt’s reputation, it…

    Hiwatt DR-504 Custom 50 Head - "Really great and quieter too!"


    Everybody pretty much knows the Hiwatt story. In the 60's and 70's they were sort of a Marshall alternative for players who didn't have microphone amplification and needed a loud 100 watt amp to get heard in those massive venues. Unfortunately the …

    (Originally written by Pucelle_Dabidjan/translated from Audiofanzine FR) 50-watt all-tube amp head. Two channels with footswitch control. Good finish although I don't like its rough tolex covering. (7): not a revolutionary product but it'…

  • Hiwatt Custom 100 Combo

    Hiwatt Custom 100 Combo - "Hiwatt Custom 100"


    Paid $400 for it a long, long time ago. This is a great sounding (re-tubed) amp from 1974. It has tons of head room and a great, glassy, jagged distortion in the brilliant input. I don't miss the lower sustain because the sound has so much unique c…
