Product Description

We’ve landed a selection of Hawk spring reverbs over recent years, and the fine-looking HR-45 is a favourite. The first one here was promptly removed to the studio for ‘testing’ and still hasn’t been returned.

Sharing similar 70s HiFi aesthetics with the Hawk HE-2150 & HE-2250 tape echoes, the Hawk HR-45 is a stereo unit that offers input controls for mic in, and also mic/line echo input. Moving along is the four-way Mode selector switch with a choice between Normal, Reverse, Split and Mono reverb settings - Reverse sadly does not offer a backwards reverb, but switches the wet signal to the opposite channel. There’s a pair of quarter inch jack inputs on the front and rear as well as a bunch of connections on RCA phonos that show its hifi background.

It’s a very useful and good-sounding spring - whilst overall it has a more-appealing the sound than the Pioneer SR-202W, there is a strong argument for having more than one spring timbre at your disposal (this from someone who has over a dozen in the studio).

Where things get really interesting is how this unit reacts to being overdriven - pure magic when a guitar is plugged into the mic input, but also very usable with beats and synths. The flexibility offered by being able to just drive the dry or reverb signal, or a combination of the two makes this a very creative tool: the overdriven reverb sound from this unit is highly-addictive!

Condition

In excellent cosmetic condition with only minor signs of age and wear. Please see photos or get in touch if you require more information on condition.

Voltage Information

100v Japanese model - it will run 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.

Tax

For sales in UK the price will include 20% VAT. Buyers elsewhere may incur VAT or other local taxes on import.
