1972 Hiwatt 50w 212 – Partridge Transformers!

1972 Hiwatt 50w 212 – Partridge Transformers!

My Personal AMP!  Came here all the way from the USSR at the cost of $1100 shipping…it is HEAVY.  Original Partridge Transformers.  Looks mostly original inside but plenty of pics so that you can scour them.  The cab is solid!   The handle might be a replacement.  The speakers confuse me….both 1972 date codes….but the frames are a little different.  One has a more textured frame vs. the other.  One speaker has a date code.  They sound the same.  Hiwatt experts please educate me.  GREAT amp that is getting super hard to find.  OH…220v in case you didn’t notice.  Lastly, looks like the side handles are after-market.

Gurus BRIVIDO Head !

Gurus BRIVIDO Head !

BRAND NEW FROM GURUS!  This is the FIRST in the UNITED STATES! Only Phil X has one for his upcoming tour with Bon Jovi.   This amp is BRAND NEW.  I am an Authorized Dealer.   This very amp was lent to a major publication for review.   FULL WARRANTY

Here is a link to the website with all the specs/info;

“BRIVIDO” is the first of a products range that will be unified under the same concept.

“Brivido” take his name from the emotion we felt on its first hearing.. we could translate it as “Thrill” or “Shiver”, something you can feel when music or tone are able to touch your soul and expand your creativity.

We took inspiration from an idea of the 60’ era, where some crazy engineer designed tube power modules for Juke-box and live clubs. Made by few EL34 running in a very higher voltage than any others. Restoring many of these old modules, we found it a very good idea to be applied in a modern guitar amp, with some mods to increase his performances and safety as well.
But this idea let us reach some of the most important results of our career, creating something can be defined as the “holy grail” of guitar amps. It works with just the double of dynamic range of any other existing amp, and you can feel it under your fingers. It can generate unbelievable power by only 2 tubes, more than 100W RMS, moreover, it sounds totally in the same way at any volume level, offering the best guitar tones you already know, but with unexpected dynamic, touch response and so easy to play.
And this is the aim that all manufacturers has tried to achieve for many years. We made it as a three channel amp head, to let you try its incredible possibilities in every application. You wouldn’t believe the dynamic of a “Brivido” until you’ll not tried out one

Callaham LIVERPOOL

Callaham LIVERPOOL

I was very fortunate to have spent hours on the phone with Kenny Fischer.  I’m not saying we were best friends.  I am saying we spoke regularly and sent each other CDs…stuff like that.  Great man who shared his knowledge with anyone who was decent to him.   Ken often spoke of a few builders whose work he liked.  Bill Callaham was one such name mentioned.

Here we have one of the rarest amps on the planet.  Bill Callaham hand crafted this “Liverpool” back before the boutique craze invaded us with everybody who could get to Radio Shack for a soldering iron.  Bill’s amps are regarded as classic takes of Holy Grails.

Typically, these amps end up in Japan.  You can see certain dealers charging upper $6ks for these heads.  You can also see they don’t last long.

Tonally, this amp gets to the heart of what a “Wreck” does.  Turn volume of your guitar down and it cleans right up.  Phenomenal cleans that sound like THAT is what the amp was SUPPOSED to do….turn up the guitar and OVERTONES…SUSTAIN….GRIND….CRUNCH.  BUT you retain note definition…mmmm…I love it.

Amp is from a nonsmoking environment.  It is ready to go and does not appear to have any mods or damage.
