    ...and a damn good price. So far $600 with only one bid. What makes this one rare is that it's a 4xKT-88 model instead of the normal 6xEL-34 version. This should be going for alot more. Please somebody get this quick and give a lonely hiwatt a good home...
    ...so that when I get enough money i'll be able to buy it from you. ;)


  2. I would love to try one of those amps but if you buy that one you will have to find some KT88's to put in it to get the full power (it has 6550's in it right now).

    Actually, my amp (Sound City 200 Plus that I turned into a Hiwatt 200 clone) is 100% identical to the one on ebay, and is making 220 *clean* watts on a set of Svet 6550s. I do wonder what it would do with KT88s, though...

    I thought KT88 was the European designation for 6550s. Like ECC83 and 12AX7. Or am I just confusing myself again?:confused:
  5. KT88 and 6550 are very similar, but not exactly the same, so they are 2 different animals technically speaking. ECC83 and 12AX7 are different names for the exact same tube.
