Product Description

The Hughes & Kettner TubeMeister 18 Guitar Amplifier Head is a 2 channel amp with a footswitchable boost on the lead for great versatility from crystal cleans to all out metal saturation. A four-step power soak allows you to select between 18, 5 and 1 watt as well as speaker mute. And courtesy of the built-in Red Box and silent recording capability, you can lay down pro-quality tracks at any time day or night.

For the TubeMeister 18 head, Hughes and 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.

Playability and Feel
Oh My God!!!
Your general opinion of this product.
OMG I cannot believe how bad a$$ this little amp is. I've run it through single, dual, and quad speaker cabinets and it just got better with each one. I never realized how loud 1 watt can be. at 18 watts it rocks your face off! For my purposes it's a great main amp. It could easily be used as a cost effective backup amp for people with larger heads. BTW it sounded better than a Marshall JVM. Just saying. . .
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It is extremely well made and very dependable so far.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The tone is supper clean. You will hear every mistake you make. This amp makes you a better guitar player by making you practice harder.
How was the action out of the box?
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish is H&K black with the blue lighting. It looks great.
How has it stood up over time?
Too soon to tell.
