and a button reverb

10 - Perfect


Setup is simple, easily obtained a good sound, there is a small button that can switch from clean to overdriven. can be obtained or his chiseled edge by turning the contour


it suits my style of metal music I get crystal clear sound in saturated fat sounds I play with an ESP LTD SC 600 stephen carpenter signature is a treat to be bold without being mushy.


Ich benutze es seit ca. 2 Jahren tauschte ich ein Marshall MG 15 DFX Grau in einem Musikgeschäft, und ich wählte den ich jemals wählen, ohne zu zögern, dass es 300 € neun der Preis / Leistungs-Verhältnis ist ausgezeichnet

Hiwatt G40/12R
40W transistor amp
input skyscraper (a headphone) output loop effect + line out to other speakers (if they still want boosted sound)
two channels (clean and overdrive) with an adjustable bass, midrange and treble in two common
+ Reverb


config could not be more simple that pleases some and not others (me in general is what I like §) so the manual or forgotten ...
its level is acceptbale plain or overdrive and the reverb. I will not lie and say it's the crazy sound (like many on this site to sell their amp ..)


if we love everything that revolves around the sound of punk rock garage (but a little blues and even pop) can find his account with a telecaster type (which is my case) quite well claps
the metal is forgotten with that (since there is no gain control) even with the heaviest of guitars ..


the strength of this amp is its weight (very light) for a 40W (good is necessarily a hp) when he delivers a big power (AC repeats easily covers a drummer)
especially me I plug a speaker of 2X15 and I obtain a really good big boost for its punk-edged rock style
I bought three years ago for 120euros secondhand (as I believe it cost over $ 200 new, but it was almost new so I had little hesitation
I do not know if I would do this purchase (as the delorean marty mcfly of no more ..) in any case I have been very useful and it looks to be strong in time
a little disappointed when even a brand as prestigious HIWATT ..
