H&K is offering its premium quality, made-in-Germany series of award-winning era acoustic amplifiers at an unbeatable Summer Sale price.
From August 1 2019 to September 30 2019, era 1 will offered by all participating dealers at the Summer Sale price of €799.00 (manufacturer’s Summer Sale reduced MSRP) – down from €1,199.00 (manufacturer’s MSRP) – while its bigger brother, era 2, can be purchased for €999.00 (manufacturer’s Summer Sale reduced MSRP) – down from €1,399.00 (manufacturer’s MSRP).
The era amps offer acoustic players the ultimate way of sharing their music with a larger audience. Designed by renowned acoustic amplifier guru Michael Eisenmann and the Hughes & Kettner team and made to the highest quality standards in Germany, the era amps offer richly detailed definition and ample headroom for peerless authenticity and tonal brilliance, as well as a number of remarkably innovative and intuitive features that will improve every performance.
They have quickly become the first choice of live amp for players such as Al Di Meola, who says: “I need an acoustic amplifier I can trust to completely and accurately reproduce my pure acoustic tone on stage night after night. As soon as I played the Hughes & Kettner era 1, I knew I’d found my match!”
The two amps are identical in terms of feature set, starting with four channels: Channels 1 and 2 are identical and are equally well suited for either two instruments, one instrument and one voice, or two voices. Channel 3 serves as an input for external audio sources (e.g. smartphones, MP3 players, etc.) and Channel 4 is a superb bus for line-level devices, such as mixers and drum machines.
A powerful EQ section and a comprehensive array of built-in effects allow performers to shape the tone of their instrument(s) and vocals. There are 16 FX in total (including various reverbs, delays, chorus and flanger, and combinations of the various types) and many can be adjusted, customized and saved as presets at will. On the rear panel, the era amps feature outputs suitable for any conceivable professional purpose, including a DI output, a stereo Line Out, and an S/PDIF-Toslink optical out for recording purposes.
The 250-watt era 1 features a single 8” speaker and 1” dome tweeter, while the 400-watt era 2, with its double 8” speaker and single 1” dome tweeter setup, is especially suited to percussive playing styles, use with external music devices and drum machines, or for instruments with lower frequency ranges like double basses and bass guitars.
Rüdiger Forse, Hughes & Kettner’s Senior Product Manager, said: “If you’re in the market for a premium acoustic amp, now’s your chance to join the era family for an incredible price! The era amps have raised the bar for the whole acoustic amplification industry, as witnessed when they won the MIPA Award for Best Acoustic Amplifier, and this is the time for anyone who was thinking about it to step into a new era of acoustic tone with us.”
