Nice hybrid 80s amp : HUGHES & KETTNER ATS 60.
The thing just felt like quality at the pawn shop. I'll bring it to the studio tomorrow for a test drive.
Thanks for reading. Are you familiar with this brand/model ?

Thanks guys. I haven't measured the speaker yet, I'd say 12. Nice cleans and super silent electronics. The tube drive seems usable but nicely complemented by the Line6 M9. All in all it sounds much more defined and with a richer bottom end than my Peavey 110 Studio Pro. My amps are no match for my guitars, but I'm buying my own flat next week if everything works according to plan. Thanks for reading. Have a great day !

This amp was built in Western Germany with some US made parts. Those were the days...

I have a pure SS Hughes & Kettner Edition Blue 60 that I got for a song. The distortion circuit sounds pretty solid-state but the cleans are amazing. I've never heard cleans like that out of an SS amp before. Punchy, loud, but not 'take your ears off' in that usual solid-state way. The only effect is Reverb but it is pretty good.
Before I bought this one I stepped over a Blue 30 several times at GC thinking it'd be garbage, but now other H&K stuff I've played seems up to stuff for its category.
