1971 Hylight HIWATT DR 103 Serial No. 1527

According to MHuss site, the amp was built in 1971 at the New Malden shop.

I am offering this amp to my fellow brothers here on the board. It has been a tremendous amp and has been a pleasure to rock out with.

It is not a super bright HIWATT.

The tone is much fatter and darker than I think most are accustomed to when dealing with these amps.

Terry Kilgore (tubetramp) loves this amp. Every time I take it to him he tells me "yup, this thing grinds, its a good one!"

The amp does grind and it does so very very well.

The amp has had a bias pot put in by the fellas over at Plexi Palace, I felt it was a good idea because tubes today were to inconsistent to run in the amp.

The amp has had on resistor changed by Terry Kilgore(tubetramp).

It is rock solid and ready for a new home. Unfortunately I no longer play as much.

The power tube section has Tesla EL34s that smoke in this amp from good ol' tubetramp, they really sing.

In the pre section I have the Mullards that originally came with the amp:

V1: Mullard ECC83 V2: Amperex V3: Mullard ECC81 V4: Amperex

I originally bought the amp from Joel at Electric Amp. Here is the link to a bunch of photos he has of the amp on his site:

Additionally, the amp comes with a flight case built by A&S Case in Hollywood, CA.

I am located in Souther California, but will ship anywhere!

If you are interested please send me a private message to discuss the amp in further detail

I know here it will go to a good home :D

I am attaching a few pictures and also a link to the album of the amp.

Here is the entire album

I have responded to all interest parties thus far.

I'm glad someone wants to take my baby to a good home.

I also added some pictures of the flight case it comes with.

Thanks.
