Hylight Electronics are a British amplifier manufacture based in London. Since 1964, Dave Reeves has designed the best circuits for all-purpose guitar and bass amplifiers featuring classic British tone, high headroom and reliability.

They have now developed their designs further in order to offer modern guitar players high quality military spec hand-wired amplifiers with optional features such as line output, effects loop, power attenuator, gain boost and channel switching. All amplifiers are custom made in England with high-grade components as well as unmistakably high-quality English made transformers, the heart of all truly great amplifiers. Hylight amplifiers are all built to last a lifetime.
