Hiwatt Hi-5 Pure Tube 5W Head

Hiwatt has proudly crafted truly hand-made amplifiers and cabinets, serving the world's best players since 1966.

As a pillar of the British amp invasion in the 60s and 70s, Hiwatt stands alone with a handful of guitar amplifiers that were there from the beginning. Many Hiwatt amplifiers are considered historic in the creation of the British Sound, especially the Custom 100 Head. Whether it be in the hands of British rock icons, The Who, Pink Floyd, and Led Zeppelin, or in the current arsenal of Oasis, The Killers or Circa Waves; Hiwatt's unique third and fifth harmonic rich sound is as effective in the studio as it is on stage, generation after generation.
