Flagship, boutique tone at a manageable power level—plus tons of great features.

TubeMeister Deluxe 40 takes the bestselling Meister lunchbox amp format to a whole new level, with boutique tube tones inspired by the most-loved channels of Hughes & Kettner’s award-winning TriAmp Mark 3 flagship and a bunch of killer new features to make your job as a guitar player better sounding, easier and a whole load more fun.

Whether you rock on stage, play at home or record at night, TubeMeister Deluxe 40 is the ideal amp. The real power soak lets you switch between the full 40 watts of power, 18 watts, 5 watts, 1 watt, or even 0 watts, for truly silent recording at any time of day or night.

TubeMeister Deluxe 40 is the first tube amp ever to offer you a genuine FRFR (full range flat response) amp sound experience. The groundbreaking Red Box AE (Ambience Emulation) DI output lets you connect your guitar direct to your recording setup or the PA, so it’s perfect for stage and studio work—and it delivers a perfect mix of authentic 4x12 cabinet ambience effects and an ultra-direct attack of pure tube tone.

    Comments about Hughes & Kettner TubeMeister 40 Deluxe Head:

    After years of searching, Going from 100 watt JCM stacks in my twenties (and all the happy memories carrying 4-12" cabs up fire escape style stairs to stage doors), then trying hopelessly to get a good sound thru modeling amps (LIne 6 - you should be ashamed), I have arrived in tone nirvana. No frills, no gimmicks, just 100% pure tube tone with wonderful break up, smooth saturation, and shimmering cleans. Now I really hear all the overtones and harmonics from the way my fingers and guitar interact. Hughes and Kettner Tube 40 Deluxe is the best Amp I've ever owned. Redbox sounds great. Can't go wrong to add one to your setup. I paired mine with a H&K 1-12" cabinet, as well as being able to use my marshall 4-12".
