Wonder how the transformers are. I have an amp with original Partridges in it and those things both sound amazing and are more or less indestructible.

I play with a LOUD drummer, so depending on what you play it may work for you. If you're looking at a Triwatt though their selling point is mainly being a lower wattage DR504, if you want headroom I'd just get one of the VHR kits for a 50 watter. The Triwatt DR channel sounded just like a lower wattage version of my Reeves, it was great. Again, my opinion may be skewed regarding headroom seeing as how I now play a Hiwatt 100 and am used to V4's and the like.
Yeah, I would have thought it had more headroom than that.

Ceriatone will cost you at least $175 just to ship it here. :cop:
Thanks for all the replies. As for as the headroom concern, I play a Classic 30 (30 watts, 1x12) and a Tiny Terror (15 watts, 2x12) with my drummer and still get a clean sound with my LP. I'm guessing the Triwatt will be able to deliver clean as well. As far as the kits - VHR no long offers kits, sad. Ceriatone has two Hiwatt clones - the 103 and 504 (and a 504 OL, which I'm not interested in). The 103 (the 100 watter) is the same price as the Triwatt, $600, which includes all the parts, chassis, plates and transformers, and no tubes. Same price as the Triwatt, more power. The Ceriatone 504 is only $530 for everything except tubes. What is a boy to do.
