Even the flightcase didn’t save this one from UPS. Chassis is loose, the bolts pulled right through the sleeve, and the rivnuts broken loose, meaning the bolts just spin but are retained. Had to push them all the way thorough the sleeve, then address the oversized holes later.
New transformer in there and the reverb connector is removed and replaced with an XLR on the back presumably for an external unit.
Another view of the guts, showing the wiring for new transformer. No HT fuse in these puts the PT at risk.
Other end of the chassis.
Detail of the reverb mod. Now I’m thinking maybe a DIN rather than XLR but I put it back in flightcase and put stuff on top waiting for a rivnut tool showing up.
Bit of a mission to go and get this. Came with no valves, but been after a Hiwatt for ages. Hope it works because the inked joins and ridiculous neatness are going to make it hard to sort out without showing.
PA front, pretty boring.
Super tidy inked guts. The inked turrets with no solder on them is odd though.
Here are the pain in the nuts must have two cabs plugged in to work jack arrangement, as the amp was more powerful than most cabs could take. Overall, very similar to my Sound City 200, but neater and inked.
Also had this much less interesting Sound city slave arrive.
Electrovoice transformers again. Not very exciting.
