    I've been talking to Nik about the Hiwatts he can make, so I need some opinions and feedback. He has two models a DR5404, CP103. Not really sure what the difference it. So I need some insight to these amps.

    All I know is that Hiwatt is big clean sound and David Gilmour uses Hiwatt. 'Nuf said I guess....

    The Jimi Page model would be the one.

    I'm glad you said it. So often his tone was brittle and lacking in sustain.

    I just checked the Ceriatone website and didn't see anything about the DR5404. Any more news on this one?

    Nik puts out some very nicely wired amps. Doing one up like a Hylite era Hiwatt would be a challenge. :BEER .... Glad to hear he's takin it on!
