first amp off the bench 2013

Postby Dr.HI-TONE » Thu Jan 10, 2013 1:34 pm

A faithful recreation of the classic 1970s DR/AP preamp mated to our 30/15 power amp.

I may have to keep this one for myself!

All HIWATTs have larger PT's than OT's, its just that the PT has an extra low power tap that supplies the "switch" circuit in the "JP" models which is why the difference is even more noticeable. The 30w. PT is larger than the 50w. Partridge style PT.

This amp does sound amazingly good...........that is why I am tempted to keep it for myself..... :D
