Hiwatt DR-504 50w half stack-great shape. Here's the scoop- the head is made by Audio Brothers, who are widely considered to have made the best reissues, some say as good as the old Hylights. This was made early to mid 90's and is the most faithful and accurate to the old Hylights. This is the 4 holer(inputs) and I currently have 2 channels bridged for better tone shaping. This guy really cranks and has tons of headroom. I had it serviced about 1 1/2 years ago, new JJ power tubes and everything cleaned, checked and biased. It has about 10 hours on it since then, seldom used and never left my studio. Works beautifully and no issues. If you are not familiar with the Audio Brothers, Google will enlighten you-pleasantly. The cabinet I bought new from Hi-Tone amps. It alone cost over $1000. They specialize in reproducing vintage Hiwatt amps and cabinets, using only the best parts and sparing no expense. The cabinets are absolute quality through and through, Dave Reeves style. Please check them out hi-tone-amps.com. The cabinet is loaded with 75w DR-F speakers, designed by them in conjunction with Eminence Speakers. I have heavy duty casters but never put them on, they are included as is a padded flight case for the head. The case has seen better days, but does the job and is 100% functional. The whole package is first rate, no disappointments here-everything is tip-top and ready to annoy your neighbors! My price is firm @ $1850 and I've seen heads alone sell for that on feebay. Any questions please email, I'm retired so am usually around. Thanks!
