I'm out of town next week (leaving Sat) but back for the 3rd.  Worst case is me sending it home with a bud who lives in The Falls (we'll be jamming early that week).  I'll hit you up on PM after I check on some things, but I think the 4th might be the best bet for me to drive out to meet you.

Not exactly related, but wasn't about to start a new thread since I already got Scott's attention here.  Wonder if you 've ever come across one of these:





Apparently the same as a Hiwatt Slave 200 but in a rack mount chassis with XLRs for some reason. It takes 740V on the plates to get 200 watts out of those 6 EL34s; close to their operational limit and more than an SVT.

Staring at the event horizon is a dirty job, but someone has to do it...

    Never seen one of those before!  The 4th would work.

   We the deal was done in the dark of night under the light of a half moon. Jake delivered the cab to my location, very very kind of him. Thanks so much Jake! I can't wait to get it sorted out and onstage. Pics to  come!

   Got it cleaned up a bit. The white pipping was painted in a gloss black, doesn't seem to be  the same paint used to spray the grill. The grill is salt and pepper but I am wondering if Hiwatt sprayed salt and pepper grills black in the 80's? The spray job is matt, very thin and very even doesn't look like a diy job. I cleaned the pipping with denatured alcohol the paint came right off. I tried cleaning the grill with a number of things nothing touched it ( going to try lacquer thinner next). I have a bolt of salt and pepper replacement grill, I will probably replace it over the winter. It is a pita job, the mounting frame is glued and screwed it will take some doing to get it apart. While I am at it I will load it with Eminence Deltas. I took the logo off my dinky practice amp funny enough it is the right size lol! The cab will be up onstage next week with Who's That. I'll get some picks and hopefully some video! Thanks again Jake!

Looks better already!
