So we (Annihilator) decided to try these new tiny 7.7 kg Hughes and Kettner Grandmeister 36 watt tube amps out. We loved them so much and they were so friggin loud that we thought "why not go on-stage this summer with only one little amp and small speaker cabinet... well, "they" laughed and said it couldn't be done... an then many of "they" ran out and bought the little amp when they saw and heard just what it did! We put 4 of them in 2 suitcases and travel light across the world for the fly-ins and festivals. This is the perfect amp for that and for anyone for the bedroom, the basement, the jam room, the club, the theater, the hall, the arena and even the stadium. Not kidding! One SM 57 microphone in front of one speaker and voila... rock n roll! 50,000 people at this festival sure liked it !!!
