Might as well jump on the miniature bandwagon, everyone else has. I'll be excited in a decade or so when people come back to giant amps.

Its fucking Music Ground. I would rather cut off one of my toes than give them my business!

I like the idea of a practical Hiwatt. A lot!

My question is how a fizzy, 9-pin power tube translates into the punch of a Hiwatt?

Music Ground secured the Hiwatt name?

Didn't realize Music Ground bought Hiwatt, Mike?

Just release the Maxwatt SS series and be done with .Or Follow the bandwagon. Have some made in china combos with big Hiwatt badges on them. At least they will sell something.

I've got a little "Hiwatt" Custom 20 Tube made in asia. The 9 pin just can't come close to either of my Hiwatt Custom 50 amps ( 1 Hylite and 1 Biacrown).

That WEM repro 4x12 cab looks damn cool.
I would love to have one original sized.

Too expensive and only Hiwatt in name. For their price its nearly possible to buy original 70s DR103 or DR504 head and cab too. :hmm

I am sorry to say, but to me only real Hiwatts are from the classic Hylight era. From the new reissues, i recommend HiTone very much, they have lower watt versions too and are run by vintage Hiwatts fanatics and admirers.

I just can't see any EL84 amp getting the tone or punch of a Hiwatt. If DR had thought EL84's would have given him the sound he wanted from a Hiwatt, he'd have used them. Other than a few amps using KT88's, he stuck with the EL34 for the Hiwatt sound. I can live with that.
