The Custom 'Jimmy' is a faithful recreation of Page's Hiwatt amp that he used circa 1969 - 1971. It is constructed to the exact same specifications as Dave Reeves' original HIWATT design with Partridge replica transformers, input, balance , bass, middle, treble, presence and master volume controls. Like all Reeves Amplifiers, the Custom 'Jimmy' is entirely hand assembled using only the finest quality components-carbon composition resistors, STK and MOJO "Dijon" coupling caps assembled on a Garolite turret board utilizing "Mil-Spec" wiring techniques.
What makes this amp different than other Hiwatt circuits of the same period is that is has more gain on tap...more vintage Marshall in nature. And something even more unique is its foot switch volume cut. The amount of volume cut is adjusted by the balance control on the front panel...in other words, the amp can be played with a more aggressive preamp tone (adjusted by the input control) and then switched, via the foot switch, to a less aggressive-more typical cleaner Hiwatt tone. It works kind of like a two channel amp, but it is not.
