HLR20/0.5 - The ‘Little Rig’ - HIWATT ‘LITTLE RIG’

This hand wired amp is based on the DR103 circuit to give you the sound that has made Hiwatt Famous.
Hiwatt has internally linked the inputs and added the ability to switch from 20 watts down to 0.5 watt to allow you to practice backstage or even in your living room.

Don’t be misled, at 20 watts this amp is anything but ‘little’ sounding . Paired with a complimentary Fane 1x12” Speaker and Cabinet, this ‘cool looking Hiwatt stack’ is now a Great Sounding ‘Rig’.
