HiWatt Hi Gain 50 combo. Reluctantly I'm having to have a clear out so the HiWatt has to go.
This is an excellent 2 x 12 combo with a huge amount of headroom which means a very loud, clean sound which can be "dirtied" with the channels gain. Channel 2 has been tinkered with by Martin of Stoneham amps to sound like one of his own and now has a cracking lead channel too.
The amp is in very good, clean condition with no problems at all and has the channel switching/mute footswitch.
Dare to be different and have a go of this amp. I'm looking for £450.
Here's a link to a review of the amp. Thanks
