    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.

    Best amp I have owned.
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This is the best amp I have owned. The tones this Hughes and Kettner generate are sweet and beautiful. The power attenuator on the back saturates to sound without giving up any tone. Going down to 1 watt and cranking it gives it amazing sound and feel. I have owned a ton of amps, and this takes the cake. By the way, through my 4x12 cabinet this amp pushes air in the all the right ways!

    Love it! Just what I needed.
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I needed a compact, easily portable tube head that I could use in my shop and at events to showcase my Handbuilt guitar effects. It does everything and more than I needed. Excellent clean tone, which is essential for my business. I am impressed by the amount of gain available for the user as well. I recommend it for folks who want a full featured amp but do not want to lug around a heavy, bulky amp.

    Wow so much Power unleashed like a wildcat !
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have always been, like so many musicians , on the endless journey for Tone..... I have a bunch of high end amps ( Marshall of course, Mesa, Orange, Vox, 5150..etc.... This amp is beautiful ....looks super slick on stage with the blue plexiglass, Sonically both the clean and the lead channels are crisp, articulate and harmonically rich.. I power three 2 x 12 cabs with this blue monster and it will knock you over with ultimate sonic power and tonal bliss. Highly recommend for its complete package and super versatility...DI into FOHPA sounds this amp now please!

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I was shocked by the way my amp was delivered (Tossed over the gate to my breezeway, over 6 foot drop.) Plugged it in and it worked fine! Tone for days and simple operation. Glad I made this purchase! Awesome amp!
