Celebrate World Redhead Day with a Red Head From Hiwatt

Haven't you heard? Today is World Redhead Day! (Not to be confused with National Redhead Day, which we still have to look forward to in November.) If you happen to be a redheaded guitarist or have one in your life—or if you just like the color red—Hiwatt has something for you.

This new batch of Hiwatt Hi-5 amp heads feature a special, striking red tolex that's so bright, it'll attract anyone's attention. Under the tolex, you'll find the same Hi-5 you know and love: a lightweight, dual-channel head with a bark that matches its bite.

The amp head is only five watts, making it great for practice, small performances, and even studio recording sessions. It features a clean channel with a bright, sparkly, and characteristically Hiwatt voicing and an overdrive channel that can get you lightly compressed breakup to a deep, aggressive growl.

It's packed with one ECC83 (12AX7) and one EL84 and also includes a gain channel volume, two-band EQ that both channels share, and both a standby and mains switch. The new red Hiwatt Hi-5 is available now on Reverb.
