Hughes and Kettner Small Amps

Post by chrisheyes » Fri Nov 26, 2010 8:44 am

For those looking for big amp tone at low volumes consider this bunch of kit from Hughes and Kettner now discontinued.

I've had the Cream Machine for a while, but I've supplemented these to the collection.


Crunch Master and Cream Machines have valves/tubes in the preamp and output stage.

The Metal Master has valves (tubes) in 2 gain stages in the preamp with a Solid State output amp. All have output attenuators and the Red Box circuit to emulate speaker cabinets to DI straight into a mixing desk.

Those things are getting very hard to find.
