    Hughes & Kettner

    A highly advanced classic amp.

    The Hughes & Kettner Satesman Series STM Quad EL84 is a tube guitar combo amp that moves some serious air. Kicking like a mule with its 40W thump, the STM Quad EL84 is a beast that is sure to keep every rhythm section at a respectful distance.

    Beauty and the Beast

    Sinfully sweet American clean with a touch of hillbilly twang? Oh, yes. Rough-and-ready British rock in all its raging glory? Oh, yes. In one amp? Oh, no. They said it couldn't be done; the sonic divide was simply too wide.

    They said if you want both worlds of tone and are unwilling to settle for less, you would have to take two amps to the stage. They said the warm airy tone of an open back combo and the fat, focused power of a 4 x 12 rock rig were incompatible —beauty and the beast, never to be caged together. And they said this wish, long harbored by players seeking a more versatile rig, would forever remain unfulfilled.

    German Attention To Detail

    What makes the various breeds of vintage amps shine is the trademark tone produced by a particular design. Hughes & Kettner set out to conjure the sonic magic of gratifying tone, albeit in versatile amps. For 25 years, Hughes & Kettner engineers have made it their mission to decode the DNA of the most diverse guitar sounds, analyzing everything from input jacks to the architecture of housings. Armed with this insight, inspired by tradition, and driven by the desire to create something fresh and exciting for forward-looking players, they turned up a string of celebrated sound-sculpting implements, including the TubeTools line and the TriAmp. Now all the knowledge gathered along the way birthed an unprecedented amp design. At its heart is circuitry that stretches the boundaries of tube technology: Switching from Clean to Drive restructures the preamp circuits completely. What's more, current feedback is also switched, tailoring the power amp's characteristics to suit the given preamp channel. The Statesman's housing translates this revolutionary tube technology into sound pressure. It's a classic case of applied physics culminating in art: This housing, in combination with the Eminence speaker custom-designed for the Statesman, delivers both authentic combo and stack tone.
    By employing cutting-edge engineering and wedding it to classic tube craft to create today's most advanced classic amp design, Statesman stands as a testament to Hughes & Kettner's Technology of Tone.

    Total Tonal Freedom!

    The elegant Statesman's many custom features make it a boutique instrument. Dedicated Reverb Balance knobs match the built-in Accutronics reverb to each channel. A push of the Clean channel Twang button takes you from the sound that sparked the British Invasion to star-spangled California clean. The Drive channel's Boost button sweeps from the throaty rasp of the early rock 'n' roll years to the raging rock of the high-octane‚ '80s and beyond. The EL34 head and 6L6 combo's Drive channel even offers a second, separately adjustable Master. A simple twist of the wrist is all it takes to push your leads up front and center! Classic sound paired with modern-day versatility - this symbiosis is what makes the Statesman such a class act. Discover Statesman and discover what it means to make chicken-skin music.

    This amp is your palette; plug in and paint bold, beautiful sonic images. Every tonal hue from crisp, crystal-clear clean to foot-stompin' twang, and from smoky blues to blazing rock, is at your fingertips! Every nuance of every stroke is yours to control intuitively with your guitar, style, and personality. Whatever rig you prefer - Combo, 6L6, EL84, or EL34 power amp - a galaxy of great guitar tones awaits in the Statesman.

    Silky Smooth Tone

    By Daniel Pond

    from Newfoundland

    Comments about Hughes & Kettner Statesman Series STM Quad EL84 40W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    This amp is a player's dream, it can handle almost every style from blues to pop. It gives you a very nice, jangly clean sound, but this amp still pairs well with almost and overdrive. The drive channel alone gives you a very vintage british crunch. Well worth the money.

    Great Amp!!!

    By Louie-a8aZ1

    from Newfoundland, Canada

    Comments about Hughes & Kettner Statesman Series STM Quad EL84 40W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    This Amp is great for what it was designed to do. If you are looking for high gain crunch, look elsewhere. But if you want to get rich creamy vintage tone then this amp will not disappoint. The rock driver cream speaker is very good, but can be a little on the bright side, especially when using single coil pick ups. but once you figure out how to dial it in you will fall in love with the tone of this amp. I would put the H&K up against any marshall or mesa costing twice as much. If you are looking for vintage tone, do yourself a favor and check this one out.
