Hiwatt Tube Overdrive Pedal

$145.00

This is a dark, rich overdrive. Mode 1 is pretty light; nice for adding a little grit and warmth to a clean amp, and mode 2 offers a thick, juicy, fluffy overdrive that's great for vintage British metal like Black Sabbath etc. Being fleetingly made. scarce in number and an iconic brand, this may well become a bit collectable in years to come.
