REEVES Custom 50 Jimmy Page amp

We've had several requests to do a 'Jimmy Page' Hiwatt amp that he used between '69-'71 or so. I don't know what took us so long but it was a natural for us to do. The footswitch allows you to go between normal "Hiwatt" mode to "Hot rod Hiwatt"...kinda reminded me of early AC/DC in tone. This amp will be available in either 50w or 100w

How about planning on attending-Loni has a great lineup this year and your amps and especially the Jimmy head would be most welcome.

So it's basically a Custom 50 (or Custom 100) footswitchable into the "Royal Albert Hall" mode? What schematic did you use for the Jimmy Page side? Thanks.

In the "normal" mode it is very much like a Custom 50...maybe not exact but close enough.

We used the schematic we were given and the one on mhuss's site.

That tone my boy Jimmy Page had around 1971 was amazing.
Is there a big difference in tone and overall sound between the 50 watt and 100 watt?
I'll see what I can do to get one.

Looks really interesting.
Is this higher gain than a stock hiwatt of the same era?

I just got a Jen tonebender that would be great with this!

That is what I was wondering, how do these sit gain wise between normal Hiwatts and Marshalls? Tone difference and/or feel etc.. ?

The amp acts like a two channel amp but it is not...so, what I call 'normal mode' the amp is very much like a regular Hiwatt...maybe a little edgier, but still all the same basic characteristics. In the 'hot mode' it has more preamp gain. So, to sum it up, if Hiwatt and Marshall had a child-the Jimmy is what it would sound like...IMHO.
