Take It From The Top

Hughes & Kettner’s Tubemeister36 Valve Head amp was explicitly designed to deliver versatile tones. It combines selectable power output, four EL84 power tubes and valve amplification with MIDI control capability. With its 36 Watts and oversized transformers, this is one loud beast. To tame it, a programmable Power Soak was added to the mix for when you’re looking to strike a smoother note. The attenuator is fabulous quality; true German craftsmanship is on show here - with the ability to drop right down to 1W with no discernible change in tone at all. Coupled with the foot switch enabled (included with the amp) 3 channel output; all individually tone shaped - this means you can carefully craft the perfect tone and switch effortlessly between lead, rhythm and crunch all without  othering the neighbours. Then when you’re out and about (or they are!) you can crank the output to 4 other settings and have fabulous head room which makes this head a perfect pedal partner too. In fact an effects loop built in also enables a plethora of tonal options with drive pedals up front and the more ambient tonal pedals say in the loop.

 As mentioned the build quality is second to none and deserving of an amp costing 5 times the price - but the looks and tone and what really set it apart. It’s as at home driving a single cone cab as it is powering a full 4 stack and with its included padded tracks bag too makes moving around with it a simple job. Let’s face it - Once you get going and shape your favourite tone you’re going to want to take it everywhere with you

Special Features

Independent gain and master knobs and a switchable FX Loop are standard appointments on this modern triple channel amp. But that’s not nearly enough for a real TubeMeister flagship. So Mr. Hughes and Herr Kettner built in a MIDI system to access the channels, FX loop and onboard reverb. Even the power stages of the integrated Power Soak – 36, 18, and 5 watts, 1 watt and Speaker Off – are MIDI-controllable. The touch of a button is all it takes to conjure up to 128 such combinations. Imagine what this kind of creative freedom can do for your stage performance.
