TubeMeister 18 Valve Guitar Amp Head description:

With the Hughes And Kettner TubeMeister 18 Valve Guitar Amp Head, Mr. Hughes and Herr 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, the Hughes And Kettner TubeMeister 18 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.

Serving up three different sounds at the touch of a footswitch, the soulful Tube-Meister 18 is the go-to guitar amp for gigging. Its four-step power soak brings the sound of the big stage into small clubs and your own four walls. 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.

Hughes And Kettner TubeMeister 18 features include:

  • Clean and Lead channels, both with GAIN and MASTER controls
  • 2 x 12AX7 Preamp valves, 2 x EL84 Power amp valves
  • Controls: Treble, Mid, Bass EQ, Lead Boost and Channel Select switches, Master and Gain controls on both channels
  • Power: 18 Watts
  • Four-step power soak
  • Switchable to 18, 5, 1 and 0 Watts (for silent recording) power outputs
  • Built-in Red Box recording output
  • Serial Effects loop
  • Dimensions: 356 x 156 x 150 mm
  • Weight: 5 kg
  • Includes padded gigbag

Customer Reviews


For 18 Watts incredible volume and tone when used with Hughes and Kettner 1x12 Cabinet.
I have two amps input from stereo chorus and stereo reverb through send and return to give an amazing big sound.

Great value for money for a valve amp.

Expertise/Experience: rock and metal dude

Pros: +
Use it for heavy rock and metal: good blues sounds, good high gain sounds, and through a 2*12 especially with something like V30's, it's very, very loud. I rehearse and gig with this.

Cons: -

Wowzer! What an amp!
Beautiful cleans and awesome lead channel. Very versatile. Looks ace too.
The 1watt mode is still very loud but works for home practice.
Only downside is that a £400 amp head doesn't come with a footswitch! Bah humbug!
