The new HI-GAIN SER RANGE guitar amplifier heads come in 50W and 100W versions, utilize the same clean channel circuitry of Hiwatt’s coveted Custom Range Amplifiers, and add a new contemporary overdrive circuit. The power amp section features EL34 tubes while the pre-amp features 12AX7 to dial in smooth overdrive up to all-out distortion with classic Hiwatt presence and richness.

The HI-GAIN also adds Accutronics reverb, an FX loop, and an amplifier mute so you can use the pre-amp on its own through specially designed on-board speaker emulation circuitry with balanced XLR output. The HI-GAIN features push-pull switches for normal and bright settings, dual footswitch inputs for separate control of channel/mute and reverb/FX loop, and 4 speaker outputs rated from 4 to 16 ohms supporting various configurations of Hiwatt’s Fane or Celestion loaded 4x12 or 2x12 speaker cabinets.

The HI-GAIN Series is available in a standard version without reverb, mute, FX loop, and speaker emulation for the same great Hiwatt sound on a budget. Also available is a 50W HI-GAIN combo amp with 2x12 Fane speakers, available with both standard and SER RANGE features.
