Hiwatt Fl112 100watt Reborn "Bulldog"

Postby fltundra » Mon May 07, 2012 12:40 am

Hello everyone,
First I would like to thank all that make this site possible and Clayton for the parts. I was asked by my buddy to see if i could bring his FL112 back to life. It has been sitting in the corner of their restaurant for the past ten years. Has a blown Fane speaker which unfortunately i didn't get a pic of, but will add when it comes back from repair. Did I miss anything? It sounds amazing even with old power tubes. Two of the pre's are original mullards and the last person installed a russian tube and I swapped it for a JAN 12ax7wa with a balanced sections in the phase inverter. The photos are before and after I replaced two sockets and recapped. I don't play guitar but my 14 year old Son does.

Count Decibel is now The Proud Owner of This Amp. Thank You, Gene. And...BTW...that "Fane" is NOT a Fane. After EXTENSIVE Research (what make/kind/brand of speaker it is had MHuss and Darin Ellingson AND Gene stumped), I Discovered that it's what I term, "A British EV". It's an ATC, which stands for "Acoustic Transducer Company".... Look it up. That's ONE HELLUVA (n) Alnico !!!
