I have a 1980 Hiwatt DR504 up for your consideration. This is in the last few years of the good ones. As you can see it’s missing the back plate and a knob for the brilliant channel.
This thus sounds phenomenal!

The not so bads- I think the power transformer is a drake made in 82. It looks like a factory replacement as Hiwatt was switching over to drake about this time and it appears to be a factory install. But…. The output transformer, where the tone comes from, is original partridge. Again this thing sounds amazing.

The normal channel is perfect but the brilliant channel has no sound. My belief is that the volume potentiometer needs replaced. If I have it fixed, the price will go up considerably.

Please do some research as these things are skyrocketing in price!

Get your David Gilmore and Pete Townsend tones for days.
