Hiwatt DR504 Custom 50W Head really as good as new! cab optional.
From Townshend, Page, Gilmour and so many others, the fantastic and instantly recognizable Hiwatt tone is something you have to experience to believe! Previously extremely difficult, and rarely ever available, this amp easily dials in some of the most iconic tones. That isn’t the only reason it sounds great, it has a ton of headroom, is super easy to dial in, and has some really inspiring gain stages. Infinitely versatile, we haven’t been able to find a style of music this amp can’t do. The matching cab pictured is not included in this auction, but is available for purchase if you want the Total signature package. This amp is like new, and very desirable!
The HIWATT Custom 50 features a dual channel preamp with Low and High sensitivity input for each, 50 watts of all tube output, and individual controls for Brilliant / Normal inputs, Bass, Treble, Mid, Presence and Master Volume. Equipped with 2 x EL-34 tubes in the power stage, 4 x ECC-83 tubes in the preamp. Adjustable 4, 8 & 16 ohm output impedance.
A look inside the amplifier will reveal point- to-point hand wiring, turret tag boards (no printed circuits), and hand laced wiring harnesses. The power and output transformers are manufactured by Partridge, the original 1970′s supplier to the original design sheets. The components and wires are the modern available equivalents of the vintage components, 1-watt carbon resistors, and wound polyester capacitors being used throughout.
You get all the classic DR103 Tone but in a lower wattage example. It is an excellent option for the studio. Dual channel pre-amp with high and low sensitivity inputs and normal and bright options on each. VOlume controls for each channel and master volume control. 3 band EQ, bass, middle and treble. 2xEL34′s at power stage, and either 4xECC83 or 3xECC83 and 1 ECC81 (giving it a tighter sound) at the preamp stage.
