Thanks to the linear user interface of the Hughes & Kettner Grand Master Deluxe 40 you’ll quickly find the right sound every time.

Versatile Tube Sound

The “Deluxe Tone Technology” of the Hughes & Kettner GrandMeister Deluxe 40 delivers a versatile tube sound. With three 12AX7 tubes and a circuitry based on the TriAmp Mark, the preamp of this compact head covers the entire spectrum of classic and modern tube sounds. From crystal clear Vintage Clean over creamy Overdrive all the way to heavy distortion and brutish high Gain, The Hughes & Kettner GrandMeister Deluxe leaves nothing to be desired. The sounds can be adjusted via the classic 3-band equalizer, as well as with Resonance and Presence controls that influence Treble and Bass in the power amp, while the integrated Boost offers extra Gain and Volume reserves.

Extensive Effect Section

The Hughes & Kettner GrandMeister Deluxe 40 is also comes equipped with an extensive effect unit, which greatly extends the possibilities of this guitar amplifier. The digitally simulated spring reverb gives the guitar sound a harmonic depth which reproduces every note with three-dimensional depth, while the integrated Delay with Tap Tempo offers melodic Echos between short Slapback Delay for Rock’n’Roll and fundamental sound landscapes. In addition, the most popular modulation effects including Chorus, Flanger, Phaser and Tremolo are standing at the ready to give your sound a little something extra. External effect devices can be integrated via the serial effect loop, which can be completely bypassed without humming. The Hughes & Kettner GrandMeister also has a Noise Gate for quiet breaks.

40 Watts with Power Soak

The power amplifier of the Hughes & Kettner GrandMeister Deluxe is equipped with four EL84 tubes, with which this guitar amp is able to produce a stage-worthy output of 40 Watts. The integrated power soak makes it possible to reduce the output of the amp to 20, 5 or even just 1 Watt to help you maintain your relationships with neighbors. Additionally, the Hughes & Kettner GrandMeister can also be operated without a speaker connected, making it possible to record silently. The integrated Red Box AE DI Box makes direct recording of the amplifier much easier and offers versatile sound options with its extensively adjustable speaker emulation.

Fully Programmable

The optional Hughes & Kettner FSM 432 MK III MIDI footswitch can be used to store any sounds you have discovered with the Hughes & Kettner Grand Master Deluxe 40 stored on one of 128 memory spaces, whereby the "Smart Rotary Control" is able to preserve with individual positions of each knob. There is also the possibility to edit the sounds using the free GM40REMOTE app, requiring only a matching MIDI interface such as the separately available Hughes & Kettner WMI 1 Wireless MIDI Interface.
