Hiwatt / LEAD 50R / 1980 / Black / Amp For Sale

HIWATT LEAD 50R Made In England 1x12"Tube Amp 80's code AM413

Two channel, 50watt open-back combo with reverb and one 12" 75w Fane. A two button foot switch toggles between the channels and turns the reverb on and off. It's class A/B w/2 EL34 power tubes and 5 12AX7 tubes for preamp/driver/reverb duty. This combination gives it a very British sound. The reverb is the classic Accutronics spring type which gives the amp a great, big sound without sounding like a "surf tone" reverb. The tone controls work well and produce the expected/desired changes. It is pretty versatile for the price point.This amp has a great British tone for classic 70s. The Rhythm channel is the real heart of the amp, and it the more you turn up, the better it gets! It gets that big Hiwatt sound, a real sweet, brown distortion, but cleaner, and with a bit more ring than an old Marshall, and no mush.The amp is extremely loud for a 1x12. It can eaisly compete with just about anything volume wise.This amp run through a closed-back 4x12 really gets those old Pete Townshend type rhythm tone.The two channels are pretty different in character and volume levels.
