I have used a variety of amps over the years, both to record and to tour with. When I saw Jeff Waters from Annihilator using the Coreblade, I was simply blown away by what the amp could do. Killer tones in a programmable valve amp loaded with effects - I really couldn’t ask for more!!! I approached Hughes & Kettner through their distributors Headline Music about a possible endorsement, and I was really pleased to see that they were really keen on working with De Profundis. In fact, our new amps have just arrived today. This means that Roman and myself will be able to simplify our live rig without sacrificing any of the tone. Can’t wait for the tour to get started so we can unleash these new Hughes & Kettner monsters live!”
