Hughes and Kettner STM-DUAL34H
With the Statesman series, H&K have achieved what many believed could never be done: getting a single tube amp to deliver both crystal-clear combo-style clean and classic half-stack rock roar. California sparkle meets British beef, so to speak. Either/or was yesterday; today you can have both and a little more on top with the two-channel Statesman. The Clean channel's Twang switch adds a dollop of punchy upper mids to conjure a sweetly stinging sound for ballads, country, and funk. Hit the Overdrive channel's Boost switch to discover modern high-gain territory unknown to the revered classic amps of yesteryear. The innovative Balance knob matches the high-quality spring reverb to each channel. The voicing section is steeped in tradition: Like on classic tube amps, the knobs influence one another, especially Mid and Treble. This may take a little getting used to, but once you get the hang of it you will enjoy the authentic vintage vibe.
Fortunately, tastes very, so H&K offers different flavors for the Overdrive channel.
If you take the stage with a full or half stack, you probably want to raise a real ruckus. That's why the 50-watt Statesman Dual EL34 Head is the most aggressively voiced amp of this series. Like the Dual 6L6, it sports dedicated channel EQs and a three-way footswitch.
Statesman is a modern classic, so H&K sought to capture a retro vibe and pay homage to the '60s. They even custom make the chicken-head knobs.
