Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister Deluxe 40 Guitar Amplifier Head

The Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister Deluxe 40 is a versatile Tube Guitar Head. Equipped with 4x Channels, an integrated Effects Section with Reverb, Delay and Modulation as well as full MIDI compatibility, this 40W Amplifier Head is an inspiration for modern Guitarists.

Tube Sound

With 3x 12AX7 Tubes and a circuit design based on the TriAmp Mk3, the Pre-Amp of this compact top covers the entire spectrum of classic and modern Tube sounds. From glassy Vintage Cleans and creamy Overdrive to rocking Distortion and brutal High-Gain, the Grandmeister Deluxe 40 leaves nothing to be desired. In addition to the classic 3-Band EQ, Resonance and Presence Controls are available to adjust the sound. These controls influence the Treble and Bass reproduction in the power amp, while the integrated Boost frees up additional Gain and Volume reserves if required.

Extensive Effects

The Grandmeister Deluxe 40 is also equipped with a comprehensive Effects Unit that expands its sonic possibilities. The digitally simulated Spring Reverb gives the Guitar a harmonic depth that represents every note with three-dimensional spatiality, whilst the integrated Delay with Tap Tempo delivers melodic echoes between short Slap-Back Delay for Rock'n'Roll and supporting soundscapes. In addition, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser and Tremolo are included to expand your options. Additional External Effect Devices can be integrated via the Serial Effect Path, which can be completely removed from the Signal Path when not in use. In addition, the Grandmeister offers a Noise Gate, which provides silence during breaks in playing.

Power Reduction & Speaker Simulation

The Power Amp of the Grandmeister Deluxe is equipped with 4x EL84 Tubes, from which the Amp draws 40W of stage-ready power. The integrated power reduction also allows the Amp to be operated at 5W or 1W, so that nothing stands in the way of its use in the home. In addition, the Grandmeister can be operated without Speakers, so that even silent Electric Guitar recordings at later hours are possible. The integrated Red Box AE DI Box makes it easy to pick up the Amplifier directly and offers a wide range of sound options with its extensively configurable Speaker Emulation.
