Hiwatt is Back
Sonic Circus is happy to announce we will be carrying the hand-wired Hiwatt line.
As a pillar of the British amp invasion in the 60s and 70s, Hiwatt stands alone with a handful of guitar amplifiers that were there at the beginning. Many Hiwatt amplifiers are considered historic in the creation of the British Sound, especially the Custom 100 Head. Whether it be in the hands of British rock icons, The Who, Pink Floyd, and Led Zeppelin, or in the current arsenal of Noel Gallagher, The Killers or The Black Keys; Hiwatt’s unique third and fifth harmonic rich sound is as effective in the studio as it is on stage for generation after generation.
The recipe is simple – uniquely designed transformers wound to original partridge specification, point to point wiring, 18mm marine quality birch ply built by hand, assembled and soak tested in our factory in the UK. Hiwatt is the only British production Custom Shop amplifier line completely built in the UK. Our Custom Shop has no imported PC boards with plug-in wiring, no woodworking from overseas and only UK manufactured Fane and Celestion speakers.
