Hughes and Kettner STM-DUAL6L6
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.
The Statesman Dual 6L6 is voiced for styles calling for clean sounds that stay pristine even at high volumes, with the occasional foray into crunch territory for good measure. But don't let all that headroom fool you, the Dual 6L6 can rock out with the best of them. 60 tube-driven watts and two 12" RockDriver Eminence speakers will be happy to help you to a harder-hitting tone. Separate three-band EQs for the Clean and Overdrive channels afford you utmost flexibility.
