Hey,

I go by the name ThePastRecedes on the internet. I'm very interested in DIY electronics. I've build 100+ pedals, although I only own ~7 pedals in total right now :?

I've joined to do some research and ask questions about on the Hiwatt DR504. I'm planning to build a clone for myself.

Hi everyone,

I'm joining the forum now as a new Hiwatt owner. The amp is a 1978 Hiwatt DR504 all original, even the filter caps, which will be replaced soon.

I'm a new owner of a Custom 100 DR103 from 1976.
Harry Joyce signed inside chassis.
Perfect condition and Great sound.
I bought it with a 1972 sound city cab customized to gilmour 4x12 Wem.
I love Faces (Ron Wood) sound and now I have both Ron Wood gear:
Hiwatt from small Faces to Faces
Ampeg from Faces to...Rolling stone

Best regards From France !!!

Hi All,

In Canada, and have enjoyed reading this forum for a while, so now finally joining up.
Also, recently acquired '75 DR-103 and SE4123. Extremely pleased with the pair.

Cheers,
Chris

Greetings.

It has been said that "a fool and his money are soon parted." At times I wonder if that was coined for me.

I have a small clutch of bass guitars. Most stupidly expensive, but all used live or in the studio.

As well, a Versatone bass amp and now a Hiwatt DR 106 (#288).

I've yet to turn it on because I'd like it to be done on a tech's bench with one of those Variax things. Justified caution, though my patience is wearing thin since I am having trouble scheduling with someone up here with old amp experience in the far reaches of Maine, USA.

I'm not a total newbie when it comes to tubers, having started playing in 1966 or so. BUT ....

Hoping to be able to ask many useful and stupid questions about how to best care for this beautiful old amplifier, which I hope to use in one of the studios I am involved in.

Thanks!!!

Your most Happy Faced friend
