The Hughes and Kettner Switchblade is the world’s first fully programmable Tube Amp with digital Multi-FX!
Six hand-selected tubes (12AX7 and EL34) are at the core of Switchblade's design. Its four channels are optimized to cover a wide range of tones from California clean to British crunch and classic rock to contemporary American hi-gain Nu Metal. The amp's FX-section provides considerable effects power with three independent blocks that all work simultaneously (Delay, Modulation and Reverb). The user interface offers classic tube amp look & feel but is fully programmable for a total of 128 different tube tones at the touch of a button! Includes MIDI-Board pedalboard controller.
Tube Amp Revolution
The World’s first fully programmable Tube Amp with digital Multi-FX.
For another first in guitar amp history, Hughes & Kettner has packed all the features guitarists have long been dreaming of into one amp: A genuine all-tube design and the boundless versatility of amp modeling. A bona fide tube amp. With tube-driven pre and power amps. And 4 channels that put the full arsenal of classic tones at your fingertips, from spine-tingling clean and crunch to singing lead and crushing ultra saturated sound. You don’t need external effects, because reverb, delay and the most popular modulation effects are already on board in top-drawer digital quality. Best of all, you can store all amp and effect settings in up to 128 presets and activate them live on stage at the touch of a button. And that means your sounds perfectly matched to your songs. No more panicky button-pushing between numbers. And today’s sweet-spot settings are saved many tomorrows to come.
No compromises in features.
No compromises in handling ease.
And certainly no compromises in all-tube tone.
