Grind your axe with this monstrous guitar amp head.
One of the most renowned industries in Germany is engineering. German cars and aircraft are legendary all over the world, and so are the amplifiers that Hughes & Kettner has been building since 1984. A quick glance through their lineup of guitar amps will reveal that Hughes & Kettner is nothing short of obsessed with the tube - and to the guitar community, that's a good thing. With three decades of experience as a premium supplier to guitarists everywhere, Hughes & Kettner has mastered the art of combining the timeless sound of tubes with high-tech electronics. The result is an incredible blend of vintage and modern technologies, which means that you can expect strong programming features and advanced digital effects that simply aren't available on a lot of similar amplifiers.
If you're planning on a stack setup, start your search with the Coreblade 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head. This metal-oriented programmable unit is one Hughes & Kettner's flagship amplifiers, and since it's a favorite of guitarists like Alex Lifeson of Rush and Tommy Thayer of KISS, chances are good that you've already heard this legendary amp in action. As well, if you want a little amp with big tone for studio use or smaller venues, check out the TubeMeister 5. However you want to play, Hughes & Kettner has an amp for you.
For something that you can easily grab and go for nightly gigs, you'll also want to take a look at the Hughes & Kettner TubeMeister series combo amplifiers. These come in 5W, 18W and 36W versions pushing that classic H&K tubey tone through 8", 10" and 12" Celestion speakers, respectively. With the amp and speakers all contained in the same unit, a combo amp makes it quick and easy to set up and tear down before and after a gig.
When legendary German engineering meets equally legendary vacuum tube sound, good things happen. We call those good things Hughes & Kettner guitar amplifiers, and the sound that these amps put out speaks for itself. When you plug into an H&K amp for the first time, you're sure to be blown away.
