A first choice for a 1000? budget

30.01.2017
Very good all tube amp with an affordable price.
Great tone, with 4 channels.
It has also an fx processor incorporated with chorus, flanger, phaser e tremolo. Delays and reverb too.Those fx won't be my first choice eventually, but their quality doesn't compromise at all the overall quality of the product.
I can use it at home, studio, rehearsals and live with all the features.
40W max power, for me is more than enough. You can also work with 20, 5, 1 and 0W for recording with all the tone.

Deluxe - In fact!

Watze, 22.10.2016
Guitarists, the eternally seekers and never satisfied. So I too. As a user of a Grandmaster 36, I had to try the Deluxe. Not because of the higher performance (the 4 watts make the buck really not fat), but because of the sound re-design. If I was skeptical, this almost disappeared at the stroke of the first chord in Wohlklang. HAMMER !!!
Test scenario:
Gibson Standard (Humbucker splitbar on single coil), 1 * 12 open, 2 * 12 closed
All the tone controls 12 o'clock, Gain times so, times so.
Clean and crunch were my favorites at the GM36 and H & K has managed to beat them again! Lead and Ultra sing like stupid.
Had the GM36 still a small problem with high load, which made Lead and Ultra sometimes shrieking, so this is no longer an issue with the Deluxe. Full, rich, fat sounds with a powerful sustain for licks and solos. Even open chords do not lead to disaster, but sing harmoniously.
The EQ does indeed serve, but it is almost not necessary, as the channels in the 12 o'clock position are very balanced. The most important controller is gain. With this and the boost button you can adjust very different sounds convincingly. From transparent "Fender", to earthy "Blues-Breaker", AC / DC standard to razor-rectifier.
Presence and Resonance can be operated in global mode to solve sound problems in different rooms. Great for live gigs!
The highlight is also the performance of the clean channel: stroking strings -> pleasant warm and clean, violent stop: dynamic torn with bite.
Then the well-known ingredients Reverb, Noisegate, FX, Red Box, Power Soak, all of which can be easily and easily operated their service. Live I have only one wah before, everything else is in the blue box.
If you add it all together: 4 channels of the finest + boost = 8, plus FX-Arsenal etc gives a clear purchase recommendation!

The only downside: you can not get the stupid grin out of the face and the guitar no longer from the hand.
