Just because you can doesn't mean you should
The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom
I just got a used mint Thrasher 50 for $500, I figured for that price it would be worth the chance. I have the diavlo and liked it so I figured for that price I'd give the Thrasher a shot. I haven't had much of a chance to play on it yet, but I think the bottom end is dialed out by a lot of people with the low frequency gain knob and don't know it. That was meant to be able to remove a little of the low end with down tuned guitars, but can be turned up to add more low end.
Really? I thought it lead to being broke and burnt out like all of the 80s bands. Then again, maybe they did get wiser after the hangover cleared up, the drugs flushed outta their system, and their sobering bank statement left them feeling like they'd been punched in the gut.
Sad that I have to explain this... it's a quote from William Blake and in this case also a fucking joke
Dibs on when you sell it! I am local to you
I guess the folks at Hiwatt were expecting a better reaction to their price point, they haven't been active since
Given they've announced specs are being finalized and will be released in April and the price is out there what else is there to say?
Let's talk about what kind of solder they use to build it. I hear it's made from the blood of a Djenticorn
That's a fair point. I just found it funny that they were like "3 grand. Peace out"
Also the wiring is hair from the tail of Chugasus.
Poor endangered animals.
Update: The amp now has two channels and an effects loop.

Sort of sounds like it has a chance at classic Hiwatt sounds rolled back a bit. One can hope anyway...$3500 is rough for a one-trick pony
I like how this seems to have a bit more saturation. Still hoping for a 100 watt, DR103 based variant as well.
No...it's too much.
It will be expensive. It's a hand-wired Hiwatt that was engineered by Mike Fortin. Nothing about the prior statement implies "affordability". I still absolutely want one!
After the release of the dual gain/dual master 50 watt, they are anticipating another edition that will have a more classic, chimey Hiwatt clean channel as well as the Super-Hi gain channel and likely will be available in other wattage ratings. This will depend on market demand, naturally. That is what I specifically want, a DR504 that also eats other metal amps for brunch, but I can certainly work with the 50 watt Super-Hi.
For everyone that wants a DR103: Science amps makes a DR103-based amp called the Mother that's a fraction of the Fortin-name-hype price
