Comments from customers who bought this item:
Serving up three different sounds at the touch of a footswitch, the soulful Tube- Meister 18 Head is the go-to guitar amp for gigging. Its four-step power soak brings the sound of the big stage into small clubs or your own four walls. Plus, courtesy of the built-in Red Box and silent recording capability, you can lay down pro-quality tracks at any time day or night.
TubeMeister 18 stands as a testament to the knowledge and passion of Hughes and Kettner. It transforms your every touch into expressive tone, delivering soulful sound straight to your fingertips. The fully-featured preamp offers a wealth of sonic options.
The TubeMeister 18's clean channel has a warm tube tone with phenomenal dynamic range that sweeps from sparkling clean to throaty crunch. The amp boasts harmonically rich tube distortion with the gain reserves to go from edgy overdrive to soaring lead sounds. The amp can also re-voice Lead to summon modern high-gain sound that pairs plenty of punch with endless sustain.
The EQ has a passive voicing section which is tweaked to evoke the best frequency response out of each channel. The preamp section sports two 12AX7 tubes and the push-pull power amp pumps out a stage approved 18 watts. the poweramp is also TSC protected and features auto-bias and a status LED indicator. The oversized transformers give the sound plenty of headroom.
The TubeMeister 18 also features an optional footswitch connection which enables remote channel switching and Boost actuation, a serial FX loop for adding effects to personalise your sound, a quad stage power soak with silent recording capability and a balanced Red Box Out with authentic speaker emulation. All of this wrapped up in a stylish and durable transparent casing.
