Hughes & Kettner presents the TubeMeister series

Hughes & Kettner is set to unveil a new line of ultra compact all-tube amps called TubeMeister. As their stunning visuals and stellar sound attest, these dual-channel amps share the same DNA as the acclaimed Custom Tube series.

The line’s lead product is the TubeMeister 18" Head, which may be paired with a matching cabinet (1x12” Celestion). The Combo version (1x10" Celestion) also features reverb.

Product manager Rüdiger Forse notes, “The idea for the TubeMeister came from our Custom Tube endorsers. They kept asking us to develop a gig-ready tube amp that would let them rock the stage, practice at home, and record silently in hotel rooms while on the road. They also wanted it to be as easy to tote as a guitar."

On stage, TubeMeister is loud and assertive. Its handling is equally stage-worthy: The two independent channels may be accessed remotely via footswitch. Lead Boost, which is also footswitchable, kicks up the gain for leads. The ultra-reliable, maintenance-free TSC power amp, combined with oversized transformers, pumps out plenty of power.

In the studio, TubeMeister delivers the goods with its four-stage power-soak and the prize-winning Hughes & Kettner Red Box. They serve up the signal replete with power tube saturation, which makes for a tasty tonal treat for all playing and recording scenarios – best of all, at every volume.
