Never played a Reeves, but I have played some old Hiwatts. Damn good sounding amps. And the 100 watter with the matching old 412's was absolutely deafening when cranked up. That is coming from someone who likes loud amps. That thing was overboard. I don't know how J. Mascis does his thing with all that power. Two Marshall stacks and a Hiwatt stack surrounding himself in close quarters.
