    I know there totally different but has anyone heard the hiwatt or played with one. info on the net seems to be scarce but it looks cool as hell and seems to be able to beef it out. would be nice to compare it to the nice mellow tone of the ampeg aswell :)

    I have an SVT-VR and it is anything but mellow. :bassist:
  3. the VR isn't far off of my vintage SVT and Mingus is right that's anything but mellow lol
  4. i'd go for the hiwatt hands down, the custom shop stuff is great and the build quality is much better than the svt

    I'd choose a new Reeves 225 over a new Hiwatt.

    I like the sound of a VR, but I'd save the money and get an older SVT and sort it.
