Looking to recreate some of rock history’s most iconic sounds? Crazy Tube Circuits’ newest creation, the HI POWER, is here to transform your guitar tone. This groundbreaking pedal is a tribute to the legendary tones that shaped Pink Floyd’s iconic “Wish You Were Here” album, bringing the essence of British rock right to your fingertips.

The HI POWER is an innovative blend of pedal and amp-in-a-box overdrive, meticulously designed for those seeking that classic British sound.

On the right side of the pedal, you’ll find a spot-on re-creation of the “Colorsound Power Boost,” complete with BC184 transistors at 18V DC, via an internal voltage booster, and a two-band Baxandall EQ for unparalleled tonal control. The modern twists? A bypassable master volume, a reverse-log gain control for seamless transitions, and a toggle for a higher gain/lower headroom mode known as the Overdriver.

Experience the Hiwatt Amp Magic

Turn to the left side of the HI POWER, and you’re greeted with an all-analog circuit that replicates the distinctive tones of the Hiwatt amp.

From pristine high-headroom cleans to rich, crunchy overdrives, this section offers a full EQ, presence control, and a headroom toggle that mimics the original amp’s 100W and compressed 50W settings. Plus, the master volume control allows for increased gain at higher settings, giving you the flexibility to dial in your perfect sound.

Much like Crazy Tube Circuits’ other dual overdrive/amp-in-a-box designs, the HI POWER includes a passive effects loop. This lets you seamlessly integrate your favorite pedals, using the booster/overdrive and amp sections together or separately.
