Was owned previously by a retired chap who bought her, along with a 4x12, in 1974. He had an H H amp at the time and swapped that for the Hiwatt....brilliant ! The cabinet unfortunately is missing its serial plate and has 2 Hiwatt Fanes + 2 Selmer Zodiac speakers. I did try to persuade him to swap the other two Hiwatt Fanes back but he wanted to keep them in his Zodiac. The cabinet sounds very nice too, at some point I will mic it up and compare the drivers.

cheers, andrew
