Dave Reeves, who had been working for Sound City between 1966-68, had started his own company called Hiwatt and by January 1969 he began making custom 100w heads for local musicians and bands like Jethro Tull and The Who are seen using Hiwatts in May later that year.
David used only two Hiwatt heads throughout the autumn of ’69 and the more familiar three heads setup appeared sometime during the summer in 1970.
It was basically a copy of the 1959 Fender Bassman. In 1965, the plexiglass faceplates were introduced.
This is the reason why Marshalls of this early era (up to 1968) are known as “Plexis”.
The cover on Ummagumma also reveals two Sound City L100 amps, but it’s more likely that these belonged to either Waters or Wright as David went straight from Selmer to Hiwatt sometime during July 1969, – a relationship that would last almost uninterrupted for 40 years.
David’s Hiwatt settings (2006): linked input (upper normal and lower bright, guitar into upper bright) normal , brilliance , bass , treble , middle , presence , master (o’clock) 1969 – 1972 One of the earliest known pictures of David with his Hiwatts dates from the Van Dike Club in Plymouth UK. It is not documented when he bought the amps but most likely sometime during July as the band was vacant for most of the month.
