An 18 watt version of the legendary 1969 amps built for one of the most iconic rock guitarists in history.
The JP uses a different approach than the other amps. The back end of the preamp is mostly normal, including the tone stack, but the front end has a cathode follower driving a Balance control that is controlled by footswitch (like the rare SAP amp does). This effectively acts as a second footswitchable volume control, and allows boosting the signal when desired.
- Proper design and layout, premium components and superior build quality put the HI-TONE LOWATT JP in a class all it’s own.
- Standard with premium Sozo capacitors.
- Standard TAD Premium Selected tubes.
- 18 watts via 2 x 6V6GT

I LOVE THESE AMPS!!…and THIS COMPANY. I have never owned a HiWatt. Ive owned all kinds of vintage Plexi and Metal panel Marshalls, every boutique amp out there, etc. Came across one of the Hi-Tone Videos (check them out on YouTube!) and got curious. Emailed Hi-Tone and got wonderful, detailed, courteous responses from Clayton immediately (while he was camping!). Ordered a Hi-Tone Custom Lowatt and 1×12 Cabinet. Blown away at the quality and tone…a beautiful work of art that SOUNDS FANTASTIC. So impressed I ordered a Lowatt JP…that is now my main amp, replacing all my vintage Marshalls and Voxes. Super versatile..gloriously does the “Dark Side of theM___” thing!!! Best ever…, but also can crunch it up! I get Marshall, Vox, and Fender Super Reverb like tones out of this thing as well!!! No kidding. The tone controls actually DO something and this thing has me playing more and more…cant turn it off. Super light. Super portable. Can gig with it, and Master Volume works so well….no tone loss down to suitable house volumes. This is a Class Company making bullet proof works of art. Thanks so much. Planning another purchase. PS: The 1×12″ cabs sound HUGE!!! Thank you Clayton and the Hi-Tone Family!
