HIWATT Custom Shop ‘Little Rig’ head
HIWATT Custom Shop "Little Rig" Head Class A, Made in England
This hand-wired amp is based on the DR103 circuit to give you the sound that has made Hiwatt famous. We have internally linked the inputs and added the ability to switch from 20W down to 0.5W to allow you to practice backstage or even in your living room.
Don’t be misled, at 20W this amp is anything but ‘Little’ sounding. Paired with a complimentary LR112 Fane 1x12" speaker cabinet (sold separately), this ‘cool looking Hiwatt stack’ makes for a premiere sounding ‘Rig’.
— Normal and Brilliant channels. Versatile and intuitive, perfect for bringing life out of dark pickups or taming shrill high end in bright pickups.
— Linked input giving control of both channels simultaneously for extra punch and full control of your EQ. Unleash the ’jumped’ channel sound Hiwatt is famous for.
— Volume for any gig! Switchable wattage allows switching from 20W down to 0.5W for bedroom playing and smaller venues.
