See the new valve mini-head put through its paces
Quiet, loud, clean, dirty and with or without a speaker, the new Tubemeister 18 from Hughes & Kettner packs a lot into a small package.
It features all of H&K's usual visual hallmarks, with a smart perspex panel and steel chassis and packs a pair of 12AX7 preamp valves and two EL84s.
The head has two channels, plus a boosted third mode and can handle anything from clean Fender and Vox-like tones to Marshall-esque crunch and scooped Mesa/Boogie-style metal sounds.
