Vintage 1969 Hiwatt PA200 DR203 Custom Built 6L6 Valve Amplifier

Vintage 1969 Hiwatt PA200 DR203 Custom Built 6L6 Valve Amplifier

Oh wow! What a beast of an amplifier! You rarely see the 200w PA heads about nowadays. A set of 4x 6L6 valves power this beast, alongside several pre amp valves for each channel, and original Partridge transformers. The serial number puts this at 1969, along with the capacitors date code being 1968. When we received this, we swapped out the dying KT valves for tested 6L6 valves. Therefore this would have originally had in KT valves, but the 6L6s are perfect equivalents and this really does kick out a sound and a half! The original Partridge transformer has been either repaired or rewound, but everything else on this seems to be stock original.

It is in wonderful condition for its age. I’ve seen a couple for sale elsewhere, but none of them touch this! You’ll struggle to find another one like it.

Serial Number: 580 (early serial)

The Music Locker prides itself on offering vintage and collectable pre-owned instruments and equipment (the Products).

We take all reasonable steps to ensure the equipment has been inspected by a competent person in the UK to ensure it complies with UK safety standards. This may mean it does not comply with the current standards in the country in which it will be subsequently used. It is the purchasers’ responsibility to ensure it is inspected by a competent person knowledgeable with the relevant electrical safety standards within that country, prior to connecting to any live electrical circuit.

It is the philosophy of The Music Locker to keep all items as original as possible, only changing original components when absolutely necessary. This includes valves, capacitors, transformers, potentiometers, frets, etc. This gives the buyer the option of tailoring to their exact needs, and may mean that the item is not operating at optimum performance levels. Therefore, your personal preference may differ, depending on your circumstances (i.e. collector or musician), and you may decide to service the item in more depth upon receiving.
