You missed it!


Unusual four channel mixer with spring reverb – great character device.

Has a wet-only out option on the rear, and also the springs can be put out of phase (small switch on the rear) which is a neat trick on what appears at first glance to be a basic unit.

Unlike some of the other Hawk reverbs (like the HR-101, HR-202 and HR-45) there are no mic preamps in the Hawk HR-3, so you can’t get the overdriven distortion that some of these Hawks provide. However the spring has a good sound – not too dark.

(And yes, once again the name of this Hawk is confusing; it may be called a Hawk HR-3 4-Channel Echo Unit, but it is most definitely just a reverb!)

CONDITION: In excellent cosmetic condition with minimal signs of wear or age across the unit. Comes with the original box which is also very clean. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.

  • It is a 100v Japanese model and will run fine on North American mains 115/120v without a transformer (we run all our tests using 120v power); however, a step-down transformer is recommended for extended use.
  • A step-down transformer is required in the UK/EU.
  • We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required.

For sales in UK/EU the price will include VAT. VAT-free sales are possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number – please get in touch if you wish to buy this way.
