Someone's guitar tech came to us and inquired about our Studio/Stage 2x12 Combo, one of our top selling amplifiers.
The Studio/Stage offers a switchable output of either 20W or 40W. We were happy to lend the artist a Studio Stage Combo to try out.
The tech came back to us and suggested we make 1x12 version.
That’s when the idea dawned on us - build a Studio/Stage 20/40W Combo in the Custom Bulldog 1x12 configuration. The result was the new hybrid Studio/Stage Mk III Custom Bulldog with a single 75W 12” Fane speaker. Hiwatt now offers this 1x12 Combo to the public.
We’re sure when you plug into this it will live up to its pedigree. Now the Studio/Stage is available in a smaller, lighter package that’s easy to carry to your next gig.
Please contact sales@hiwatt.co.uk for more info 🎸🎢

Seems fitting for this IG post #668 to be the Maxwatt Custom Super-Hi 50, the neighbour of the beast!
Not to be confused with Hiwatt"s previous Maxwatt line of amps that are not custom shop models. This Hi-Gain amp is heavy, brutal and tight. Designed for the world of metal music, by none other than @fortinamps
β€œFour cascading gain stage design is steeped in British heritage that delivers wide soundscape with unmatched depth and clarity & control.β€œ - Mike Fortin, Design Engineer.
4 - ECC83 gain stages with plate feed tone stack. Fully regulated and raised heaters for ultra noise floor and wide acceptable of every 12ax7 currently manufactured.
Over 50W RMS output loaded with EL34s, Point-to-Point wired. Transformers wound to original Partridge design specs. Dual Gains and Masters - footswitchable, Tube-Gain Boost - footswitchable, Series Tube Loop.
The footswitch pictuted is included with the amp.
Please contact sales@hiwatt.co.uk for more info.

Found this beauty pic of @rush for Throwback Thursday #tbt Before the Hiwatt badges were stripped off the amps and cabinets, like other pics you see of the band from back in the day.
Our Managing Director recently attended a 40th anniversary listening party for Hemispheres. @richardchycki mixed the 5.1 version of the album. Yay to Hiwatt being on it!
They also had some Hiwatt on hand for Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures. Just not too sure how much Hiwatt ended up on those two records. Take off, eh!

The last post from yesterday did not constitute a proper one for #instagram post #666. So, deleted an ancient one in order to be able to post this POWERFUL BEAST of an amp! A much more worthy candidate to conjur up evil 🀘
The most powerful all tube bass amp in the world! Dual channel pre-amp with hi/lo sensitivity inputs, cross patch Bright and Normal channels.
Eight KT88's, four ECC83's, and one ECC81, producing over 400 watts - RMS before clipping. No square waves to undermine your sound!
Please contact sales@hiwatt.co.uk for more info.

The Hiwatt UK Design Tube Series is a fantastic range of economically sound amplifiers. You can create your own mini stack or just have the head.
Of course, combos are available as well, as seen in previous posts.
Compact and loud when you need it to be, spades of tone and really sensibly priced, the T20/10 Head is the most versatile in the Tube Series MKIII product line, for its price point.
The T20 is based on a pair of EL84 power tubes, plus two 12AX7 and one 12AU7 preamp tubes.
The three band EQ has a middle control with a push/pull frequency shift feature.
There is a footswitch jack for reverb on/off and a 2 band master volume.
The optional footswitch FS201 (sold separately) is available for the switching of Channels and also Reverb On/Off.
Please contact sales@hiwatt.co.uk for more info. 🎸🎢
