Solid State Combo Guitar Amplifier with Spirit Bionic Tone Generator

With the Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit 200 Combo, the Saarland-based amp manufacturer presents an innovative solid state amplifier which, thanks to the "Spirit Bionic Tone Generator", delivers particularly natural guitar sounds that cannot be distinguished from a tube amp in response, dynamics and harmony. The four-channel combo covers the most popular sounds of the past decades, from the absolutely transparent clean sound to juicy crunch and overdrive to aggressive high gain metal distortion. A comprehensive effects section is also available for sonic diversity, while the integrated "Dual Breakpoint" Noise Gate tames unwanted background noise. With 200 watts in regular operation, the output stage of the Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit 200 Combo provides sufficient volume reserves for large stages, but thanks to the two-stage power reduction, the amp can also be used at home without any problems. The Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit 200 is also fully equipped on the connection side and offers the integrated Redbox AE+ optimal conditions for the direct pickup of the guitar sound, while Effect Path, MIDI, Bluetooth, Aux-In and headphone jack complete the equipment.

Hughes Kettner Black Spirit 200 Combo Front
The Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit 200 Combo convinces with 200 Watt power amplifier output and the natural, versatile sound of the Spirit Bionic Tone Generator.

"Spirit Bionic Tone Generator" for authentic tube character

The heart of the Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit 200 is undoubtedly the innovative "Spirit Bionic Tone Generator". Strictly analog in design, the complex circuitry reproduces the complex interactions of a tube circuit in detail, giving the guitar amp the feel of a real tube amp. In addition, the "Sagging" control allows the tonal aspects of a fully loaded or even overloaded power amplifier to be simulated for the first time without deafening volumes.

Four channels for diverse sounds

With its four channels, "Clean", "Crunch", "Lead" and "Ultra", the Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit 200 covers the entire spectrum of the most popular guitar sounds of the past six decades. From crystal-clear vintage cleans to harmonic crunch and singing leads to burning high gain distortion for modern metal, the combo amp delivers a wide range of premium sounds that support expressive electric guitar playing. A classic 3-band tone control is also available to adjust the sound, while the "Dual Breakpoint" Noise Gate suppresses unwanted background noise.

Comprehensive effects section and serial FX-Loop

In addition, the Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit 200 offers an extensive effects section with which the desired sound can be suitably rounded off. This not only provides an extremely spatial reverb, but also a delay with a delay time of up to 1400 ms. Chorus, phaser and flanger are the most popular modulation effects on board, while the tremolo convinces with its harmonic modulation of the volume. In addition, the Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit offers a serial and switchable loop-in path that allows external effect devices to be integrated into the sound shaping.

On the back of the Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit is the extensive connection periphery with Redbox AE+, MIDI, effect path and speaker connection.

200 Watt output stage with reducible power output

With its 200 watt power amplifier, the Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit also offers sufficient volume reserves for use on the big stage. Thanks to the two-stage power reduction, which throttles the power amp to 20 watts or 2 watts, the amplifier can also be used on smaller gigs or at home with a neighbor-friendly volume. A Celestion G12 H speaker in a Thiele-Small cabinet ensures optimum resonance and powerful wall-of-sound sounds with the compactest possible cabinet dimensions.

Redbox AE+ and comprehensive inputs

The Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit 200 also features the integrated Redbox AE+ with balanced XLR output and the simulations of eight different speaker types, which guarantee a natural sound with a strong character, for the direct miking of the guitar sound. The guitar amp can also be controlled via MIDI, while the Bluetooth interface allows you to stream backing tracks and control them via the free Hughes & Kettner app. Last but not least, an AUX-In and a headphone jack are available.
