How much is a Hiwatt OL103 worth

Just wondering. Its in great shape and Im looking to sell. Any suggestions? Thanks so much.
Mike

Re: How much is a Hiwatt OL103 worth

I don't know exactly but as they are, i think (haven't visited Hiwatt dedicated websites enough) those are PCB-built amps, unlike the trad Military PTP that makes Hiwatt reputation. And as Hiwatts are usualy inexpensive i don't think you will get too much out of the amp. I would be willing to pay 500 canadian $ but I expect you to refuse and try for more, in this case good luck, otherwise my e-mail is mad_kobold@hotmail.com

HiWatt LC50r

I have one of these amps (LC50R), but I can't find any info about it. Anyone know where I can get some?

Re: Amp Heaven

I personally know of Amp Heaven recently offering someone in Aberdeen, Scotland, £40 for a late 60's Hiwatt 4x12 cabinet (which I bought instead!), and he advertises them on the site for $750...some markup!

Confused? 1980 hiwatt with plenty of labelling in marker

I have a 100 watt FL-112 that I bought a few years ago. Serial #13578, type AP. The more I look into it, the more I'm confused. The front of the amp looks normal, but the entire back of the amp is labelled with magic marker directly on the chassis. The speaker is the strangest part. I thought the FL meant it had a Fane speaker. If mine ever did it's been replaced, but the HH Acoustics speaker in there is model 1200E. the E is written in magic marker and I guess it means experimental like how Martin Acoustics uses the 'E' suffix. It is 200 watts. Impedence is 8ohms with the 8 written in marker. The slot for the speaker's serial number has been left blank.

Any insight anyone has would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Confused? 1980 hiwatt with plenty of labelling in marker

:I have also a Hiwatt FL 112, AP type but mine had the original 'Hiwatt' 12" speaker (made by Fane). Labelling is also 'odd'- an aluminium plate which gives type, model and serial (12142). I've had this amp for 10 years or so but have never known its origins or year of manufacture...no magic marker on this baby either!

Re: Confused? 1980 hiwatt with plenty of labelling in marker

Well, the 13,000 range are supposed to be 1979 and 12,000 should be 78. If you take out the chassis there's often a little sticker on it indicating when the wiring was completed. Can't help you with the speaker...

Amp Heaven or Tone heaven, out of london

Look out for these guys as they do not do as they say and are untrustworthy dangerously close to being a total rip off!
They advertise lots of hiwatt and english gear with no intention of following up after they have your money.
tread very carefully.

Re: Amp Heaven or Tone heaven, out of london

Can you give me your specific situation. I'd be very curious - I'm looking at buying a Hiwatt 212 Combo. Thanks.

Re: Amp Heaven or Tone heaven, out of london

I live in Japan and I dealt with this company. It wasn't fun: they tried on purpose to rip me off. Deal at your own risk with these guys.

Re: HIWATT sa 212 combo

i picked up a hiwatt sa 212 combo about 3 years ago now for $600 AUS. from a local pawnbroker. i thought i was dreaming, as it was exactly what i had wanted. when i opened it up, the sticker was dated and tested 9/78 with initials i cannot remember. what makes this amp interesting is the fact that it has two vintage greenback celestions (30 watts) with orange amplification london caps which is apparently what most british companies did. you may be able to answer this quest. was it common for the sa 212 to have built in spring reverb and tremelo because mine has and says custom built in two vertical lines at the side. can you help?

Re: HIWATT sa 212 combo

: This amp you have is a great limited production HIWATT. Nobody builds amps like this quality anymore, and if they do you will pay a lot of money for it.
: Reverb and tremolo were available from the factory. I never had one, but I remember "we buy" guitars on 48th street in NY had one. I think it was a 100 watt amp. Very sweet. The initials inside your amp might be those of the late Harry Joyce, or one of his crew.
I just got another 50 watt SA-212 from 1973. Great stuff.
Your amp is a nice limited production unit. Do yourself a favor and do not modify it. Many people play around with the gain in the pre-amp. Tese amps were not made to sound dirty or have lots of grinding distortion. Good luck, and use good n.o.s. tubes for best performance!
