This amp is in good condition but does have a few light signs of use. The worst being a few scratches and scuffs in the tolex here and there. Overall, this amp works and sounds great! Footswitch/cover not included!

Hiwatt Tube Series Amplifiers are British Engineered to provide a Classic Hiwatt Clean + Overdrive Channels at a great price – based on the success of Hiwatt’s power-switching ‘Studio/Stage’ Amplifier.

This ‘Cathode Biased’ (aka Class A) amp provides the Guitarist with a ‘touch sensitive’ feel to the amps response. Half your power, to drive the Tubes harder, to obtain pure, natural Hiwatt Overdrive with less volume. On the 3 band EQ there is a push/pull ‘full tone shift’ feature. This amp has Dual Gain controls for the Normal and Overdrive channels, Real Spring Reverb and a Footswitch for turning off and on the Reverb and switching channels. Perfect as a pedal platform.
