I've used a Vox AC30 for about four years now, it has never been reliable and currently needs a new output transformer, which it will get, but I've learned never to rely solely on the Vox again. So, I'm looking at Hiwatt amps, but unfortunately there is no chance of me trying one before I buy, which is where I hope for you guys to chime in. I'm mainly interested in the Custom 50 and Studio Stage 20/40, either combos or head and 2 x 12. Most leaning towards to the Custom 50, since I think it would be a nice compliment to the AC30. Anything I should be aware of? Experiences, be them positive or negative, are most welcome. If I had the time, I'd probably order a Reeves, but I don't have time. I need to pick this amp up asap. Many thanks, Tea.
