Hughes and Kettner SWITCHBLADE

The Hughes and Kettner SWITCHBLADE is an interesting amp. It's a 100 w head, all tube amp, with 4 EL34s in the power amp section and 2 12AX7s in the preamp. There are 4 channels, which are clean, crunch, lead, and ultra.

The amp is packed with features. It is a fully customizable tube amp with Digital Multi-FX. It provides big, rich, tube tone, digital effects, full programmability and a professional midi switching system.

I haven't had a chance to try one myself, but I found a good demo of it that I'd like to share with you. The first demo is just talking, the 2nd one showcases some of the tones this amp can produce.

The amp features a genuine all-tube design and the boundless versatility of amp modeling. With tube-driven pre and power amps and 4 channels that put the full arsenal of classic tones at your fingertips, from spine-tingling clean and crunch to singing lead and crushing ultra saturated sound.

You don't need external effects, because reverb, delay and the most popular modulation effects are already on board in top-drawer digital quality. Best of all, you can store all amp and effect settings in up to 128 presets and activate them live on stage at the touch of a button. And that means your sounds perfectly matched to your songs.

No more panicky button-pushing between numbers. The included FSM 432 MIDI footswitch allows instant switching between presets.
