Hiwatt Hi-Gain Series Now Available In USA [ Winter NAMM 2007 ]

United States
Kaysound to distribute Hiwatt amplifiers in US Market

NAMM - Anahaim, CA, (January 18, 2007) — Kaysound Imports today announces a new agreement with legendary amplifier maker Hiwatt to distribute their products in the United States. Under this new agreement, Kaysound introduces Hiwatt’s new Hi-GAIN series in the US consisting of the HI-GAIN 50 and HI-GAIN 100 guitar heads, a HI-GAIN 50W combo amp, and 4x12 and 2x12 cabinets.

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.

Price and Availability

  • HI-GAIN 50 Head - $1399 MSRP ($1549 SER)
  • HI-GAIN 100 Head - $1499 MSRP ($1699 SER)
  • HI-GAIN 50 Combo - $1699 MSRP ($1899 SER)
