Okay, if you can endure reading my reviews for too long you may get the hint I love Pink Floyd and David Gilmour which, I know, is a bias and may colour my reviews. So that said, I now want to look at some of the Hiwatt products.
So today I am going to look at the Hiwatt Tube Overdrive pedal, which arrived in a UK flag emblazoned box and opens to reveal a nice shiny black affair that would score highly on aesthetics alone. Hiwatt definitely have that distinct black with white logo that looks fantastic and usually are built quite well.
Hiwatt now has factories that produce some of their lower cost products (such as the T10/T20/T40 amp range and pedals) in China. Now psychologically this is a turn off for some, but as I have mentioned before, quite often it is a ‘mind’ obstacle as the pedal sound quality is as good as anything I have played.
In fact this sounds way better than the Butler Tube OD I used to own (although that OD pedal is very picky on what amp sounds good with it). Hiwatt are known for being concerned about their reputation and quality control.
So now to the pedal itself, besides being black n sexy, it is powered by an 18volt adapter which comes with the pedal so the tube inside is not too starved which can make them sound thin and wimpy.
