Hiwatt SA-212
The SA 212 is a combo HIWATT 50W lamp. is a single channel with 4 inputs: two "normal" and 2 "bright" that we can route all Manir get the "natural saturation" of the amp. He does not have rverb. REPRESENTATIVES it even in the simplicity of Contents rglages. the power tubes are EL34 (JJ for me).


Trs simple because the number of pots was Reduces: bass, middle trebble, prsence, the more traditional volume pots. if the use is defined as transportation: buy arms! BTE is close to 45 pounds.


I play in a prog metal band 'and, curiously, the sound of this amp is well suited trs this style of music especially for clean sounds. sounds will not be saturated to rest if you possdez good saturation effects or pramp (reminder: no channel saturation of the amplifier!). two HP 12''guarantee. care are some SA 212 FANE quips by others ROLA CELESTION PRE-cell may influence the color of the sound. For my part it is the heavenly. I use it with a Universe (7 strings) and I must say that the bass response is incredible! there is coupled a set VHT (GP3 and 2/50/2 and two 2x12 boxes DWT) as a whole by a gr G-system and a box of SPX routing (custom)


I use it for 4 years. this amp is for me a foudre.Datant of 1977 it is retubing for now (back for Christmas, thank you SPX). collection's outdoor appearance is "vintage" is to say a little tired but good: it is always in the old pots you are doing good soups (is not it?).
ct price, a rarity it is necessary to take about 1500 Euros (without restorations follow: lamps and body fatigue for the year), against part: the key to a unique sound!

Hiwatt SA-212
Year 73, JJ Lamps, 50 watts, two inputs with 2 bright normal volume associated 2x12pouces fades HP, simple settings low, muddle, sharp, spring reverb, solid wood.


Very easy to use, the sound is very right and very evenly balanced any effect takes its proper perspective. After that happens a millimeter to settle "his" sound, once the marks made for me is the amp


rolls of all possible styles as the definition is good, when we know that sound of Gilmour (Pink Floyd) has there, coupling it with a Fender twin reverb.
I've had amps from Marshall to Mesaboogie through Fender Acoustic and so on, but they never equaled "my Hiwatt" I'm still back on. I couples in the studio with a Vox AC30 more crunchy, 1972. It is true that the twist must send the rubber and the Vox brought a dirtier side.
I have not tried the reissue handmade, but I heard it was not bad at all, there is the price 2800 euros which I think could be a barrier for small budgets, but good to know what you want .. it is a pro instrument.


I use it since 1977 recorded 4 LP (yes AC was not done before CDs) with Arsenic and Carte de Sejour and frankly it rocks on stage as the sound is full, no need to mount Volume I played with a third wha wha vox, a MXR distortion, an analog delay rack, and 80's require a chorus from untraceable at Rolling, the real sound that brings you all the guitarists at the end of the concert to ask you where it comes from;)))
Only flat weight, it weighs very heavy, it's not really the amp that leads to the repetition each time. But good sound is so huge that the roadies follow soon .... when it is used.
