    Product Description

    The GrandMeister 36 is an all analog tube amp with four independent channels: Clean, Crunch, Lead, and Ultra. The 36 watts 4xEL 84 power amp is based on the TubeMeister 36, but the 3x 12AX7 preamp is completely redesigned and offers the widest tonal spectrum we ever included in an amp, from sparkling clean to highest gain. Independent gain, master, EQ settings and even presence and resonance control plus a switchable boost for each channel provide you with all the versatility a guitarist could wish for.

    How? The GrandMeister’s Smart Rotary Controls allow each channel to have its own set of controls with only a minimum of pots since each control is fully remote controllable and programmable. That means you can create any sound you want, store it on 128 presets, and recall it via MIDI controller, interface or your iPad. IPad? Yes, the complimentary app for iPad enables you to check the setting of every single control, adjust them, assign names to the presets, and remote control the amp with your iPad – everything in real time. And the best news: the remote control is just the icing on the cake - all controls are accessible directly on the amp or the matching MIDI board FSM 432 MK III (not included).

    And if you still feel there is something missing you might want to take advantage of the on-board effects and add some delay, chorus or one of the other modulation effects. By simply pressing FX ACCESS you can make the Smart Rotary Controls for the channel settings now work as effects controls, which keeps your user interface well structured and clear. The GrandMeister is also equipped with digital reverb as well as an intelligent dual break point noise gate, measuring the guitar signal at the input, but cutting the noise between the preamp and effects loop.

    However, the GrandMeister wouldn’t be called a Meister if it weren’t for all the great features that made the Meister series so successful. The Power Soak is capable of converting the amp’s output into heat and tone and thereby gives you the opportunity to break 36 Watts down to 18, 5, 1 and 0 Watts – it goes without saying that the Power Soak is programmable and controllable via MIDI as well.

    Hence you can enjoy the full tube sound at home without annoying your neighbors and even do silent recording at night. The built- in RED BOX genuinely simulates a 4x12” cabinet and sends the signal directly into the mixer, which makes it an amazingly helpful tool in the studio as well as on stage. And last but not least: The TSC (Tube Safety Control) is an automated system that constantly monitors and readjusts the bias to ensure the power tubes operate reliably and deliver the best possible tone.

    The GrandMeister is the dream amp for every guitarist who wishes for unlimited access to great tube tone, including effects - all at a touch of a button.

    Amazing little amp. Phenomenal tone and sound quality in every channel. Built in fx are satisfactory, noise gate and red box are awesome features. My only complaints are registration is a pain and had to replace a power tube after 2 hours of use.

    Purchased this for my new, best guitar amp rig. Line 6 Helix to Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister 36 to Mesa Boogie Mini Rectifier 1 x 12" straight and slant speaker cabinets, loaded with Celestion Vintage 30 16 ohm speakers (special oredered). I get the great natural, complex overdrive and distortion from the Grandmeister, then run the awesome presets from the Helix into the effects loop. And, I use the Helix as a MIDI controller! Allows me to save all my settings from the Grandmeister and match them up with the Helix presets. Everything comes together fabulously, and looks fantastic! Sounds great, looks cool. A home run from H & K!

    Fantastic Amp, Exceptional Features
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I was looking for a grab and go live amp. Did a lot of research and decided to give this a try. All tube, built in effects, Midi compatible. The sounds you can get out of this are wonderful. I have a Mesa Express 5:50 212 and it is HEAVY!!! This amp weighs 17 lbs and rivals my Mesa in tones. I was really impressed. Connected to a 112 WGS Vet 30 (one of my favorite speakers of all time) and this rig smokes! The presence and resonance knobs make a huge difference. Built in Noise Gate and Boost onboard as well. 4 channels, Clean (very good, Voxy), Crunch, Lead and Ultra. While I can't see using the Lead and Ultra channels live, they are way fun to noodle around on. Not sure about the reliability but if it lasts, this will be one of the best amp investments I believe I will have had. If you get the chance, check one out.
