HI-TONE Amps were created in honor of the late Dave Reeves and his original amplifiers, used by some of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s seminal Musicians from the late 1960’s to 1981. True to his philosophy, only the best available components go into a HI-TONE.
HI-TONE Amplification is the only amplifier company endorsed and approved by the Dave Reeves family.
The LEAD model is based on a “one-off” DR103 that Dave Reeves built for an un-named artist back in the spring of 1970.
- It incorporates all of the classic “DR” features, but has more gain and more emphasis on the mid-range.
- Some of our friends have described the original as: “the best sounding DR103 I ever heard” and “it’s like an ‘angry H*WATT’ or ‘H*WATT Nasty'”
- Note this amp is NOTHING like the 1980s “Hiwatt lead” amps.
