Used it with Caravan until about 1980ish and still used it up to 4 months ago. New valves twice - Fanes re-coned 3 or 4 times. It wasnt the first. I was playing with Jerry Donahue at school and about 4 years after and we tried Sound City amps, originally also by Dave Reeves. Then we heard that they had changed, but that Dave Reeves was making his own brand. We went to his house and found they were being built in his garage - and we bought one.

1679DR103 Hylight 4-input I bought this amp for a hundred pounds from a passer-by at Camden Lock markets where I had a stall in 1986 or 1987. It already had an effects loop added. I later took it to Sydney and had it serviced - after that it had non-original valves and power capacitors but whether I bought it with originals I dont know. I fitted an IEC mains socket. It still has Partridge transformers. This amp was once played by Andy Bell of Ride later of Oasis, then Beady Eye who borrowed it when my band Jupiter supported Ride in 1991. His own Hiwatt had been left in the UK and he was playing through hired Marshalls - which he didnt like.AU

Yellow label open-frame Partridge transformers, original caps, Bulgin, white output jacks, black selector rings, traditional black and white logo. Almost all original, a half-power switch and a pentode/triode switch added back panel. In this way the amp can guarantee in pentode mode DR103s original circuit 100 watt and 50 watt output power, plus in triode mode 50 watt and 25 watt output power according to the musicians want. So the amp can be cranked not only in a stadium, but also in a small studio. Awesome! Since this amp is an early one, sounds darker than a late 70s model the tone is very same as Martin Barre's of early Jethro Tull. The amp has JJ/Tesla valves at the moment, keeps its superb build quality and works perfectly.HU
