I began appreciating the tones out of Hughes & Kettner amps at one of my first jobs working at a music store. The GrandMeister Deluxe 40 is such a versatile creation, with four gain channels and extremely responsive EQ options. I love the wattage control, so that I can tame it for recording at my place to cranking it up on stage. The built-in effects and boost are great, and the best part is that this tube amp is the perfect size to travel with!
