NAMM 2014: Hiwatt Custom Shop Little Rigs

Hiwatt has introduced three new amps in a new series they’re calling the Custom Shop Little Rigs. There are three amps in the series right now: the Little P Rig, the Little D Rig, and the Little J Rig.

Hiwatt Signature Series Little P Rig

The Hiwatt Little P rig is based on the original CP103 amplifier used by Pete Townshend of The Who. This was the tone that sparked a new generation of guitar players in the early 1970s. The Hiwatt Little P rig comes complete with a scaled down 1×12 fane loaded cabinet and is perfect for home, studio and live use.

• 20/0.5W Switchable
• EL84 + ECC83 Valve Configuration
• Hiwatt Fane 1×12 Cabinet

Hiwatt Signature Series Little D Rig

The Hiwatt Little D rig is based on the amplifier modified my Pete Cornish for David Gilmour of Pink Floyd. The Little D featured 3 inputs, normal, brilliant and linked. The linked input allowing users to blend the tone of the normal and brilliant channels. The Hiwatt Little D rig comes complete with a scaled down 1×12 fane loaded Starfinder cabinet and is perfect for home, studio and live use.

The Hiwatt Little J rig is based on the original SAP head made for Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin. The Little J features a unique circuit at which offered a more driven tone than a standard Hiwatt Custom Amp. The amplifier also has a unique, foot switchable cut circuit. The Hiwatt Little D rig comes complete with a scaled down 1×12 fane loaded Starfinder cabinet and is perfect for home, studio and live use.

I’d be hard-pressed to pick between the Little D and Little J Rigs.
