Well, it came yesterday afternoon, and all I can say is the face plate is really nice. Someone has added what looks like three aditional effects loops, and very poorly. also three tube sockets maybe for onboard effects. I will make some obvious repairs and see if it makes any sound.?????? :D :D :D

Hi again; After repairing all of the bad stuff that I could see and replacinng the power cord, a fuse holder and fuses, I dug out some used tubes. This amp has 8 pre amp tube sockets three have been added. I just used the 5 that came stock. turned it on and let it warm up. No smoke! grabbed a guitar and it works. Not very well, noisey, needs caps and such but it is not too bad. I will take some pics and see if anyone can figure out what all the additional stuff that has been added is for and any suggestions how to revove. Well time to order some new tubes and caps. :jam:

Good news !!! At least the transformers are good---i didn't realize the amp has been modded that much--- but i've never seen an L150 before.
Keep us posted on your progress---- :jam:..........................gldtp99

My Hiwatt/SC120 is a love affair. There's a little hum in the v4 phase inverter I think that is slightly annoying but it's such a small thing I've been putting off attacking it. I just really love playing this thing. I used two 4x12's at our last show and it was too much. Top cab was way too bright. One old JCM800 bottom cab is just massive sounding and easily keeps up with our bassist's late 70's Ampeg SVT and 8x10. Never played a working Sound City but I'm in love with this Hiwatt clone.



Nice choice of tunes! :jam:
