HIWATT - THE AUDIO BROTHERS YEARS

The U.K. Firm THE AUDIO BROTHERS which is headed up by Steve Gibbs and Richard Senior,was contracted by Fernandes Guitars and Biacrown to make reissue versions of several classic models of 70s era HIWATTS from 1992 to 1998.

Using schematics from early 70s models,Gibbs and Senior faithfully reproduced the hand-wired chassis and robust cabinetry that had marked HIWATTS glory years under Hylight Electronics. Sourcing the original suppliers of parts helped produce what was to be the closest likeness to the original HIWATTS that had been achieved since the demise of Hylight Electronics in 1982.

Original reproductions included the DR103 and DR504 AP amplifiers,the SE4123 speaker enclosure and SA112 combination amplifier.THE AUDIO BROTHERS also brought their own entries into the HIWATT legacy by re-designing the configuration of the original SA212 combo,giving it a vertical cabinet construction,and by introducing two new pieces; the brilliant SA210 combo,and a 4 X 10 speaker enclosure.

Although THE AUDIO BROTHERS no longer manufacture the HIWATT line of reproductions,they have concentrated their energies into the production of their own line of hand-built,all-valve amplification, the much-lauded BOOKER amplifiers.Please visit their web site for further information.
