For TubeMeister, Mr. Hughes and Herr Kettner packed all their know-how and over a quarter of a century‘s passion for tube amps into a remarkably compact chassis. Thanks to German engineering, it can go from a roar to a whisper, shaking the boards on stage, tingling spines in the studio, and raising goose-bumps in the still of night - even during silent recording.

Serving up three different sounds at the touch of a footswitch (sold separately), the soulful TubeMeister 18 Head is the go-to guitar amp for gigging, with its four-step power soak that brings the sound of the big stage into small clubs and your own four walls. Oversized transformers deliver tons of headroom with phenomenal dynamic range that sweeps from sparkling clean to throaty punch. The Lead channel offers harmonically rich tube distortion and gain reserves to go from edgy overdrive to soaring lead sounds, while the integrated Boost re-voices the Lead channel to a modern high-gain sound that pairs plenty of punch with endless sustain. Plus, with the onboard Red Box and silent recording capability, you can lay down pro-quality tracks at any time day or night.

Note: Ensure that you purchase your Hughes & Kettner Tubemeister with the correct voltage. The European standard 230 volts + 10% is officially correct for Europe and the UK. Hughes & Kettner also manufactures Tubemeister Series in 240 volts to take account of the significant variations in UK voltage in comparison to voltages within the European mainland.
