I use the amp head together with a setup of a Squier Stratocaster HSS and a Behringer UMC-22 USB audio interface.
Pros:
First and foremost, the sound of it is quite nice, for the lead channel it is quite easy to get a lighter distorted sound (good enough for songs like Hotel California or Sweet Child O' Mine); for the clean channel, I think it works just fine as a platform for pedals, and by turning up the gain, a nice overdrive crunchy sound is available.
The handling is good, so it is easy to use, nothing much fancy.
The features are quite excellent, even though the tubes safety checker system (or somewhat) is not that useful to check every time you play, but after a while, it is a nice indicator for tubes changing; the internal DI Box and the Power Attenuator are useful in the perspective of house recording.
German quality is good, and it looks pretty fancy at night due to the blue light, real swagger! The bag is good for travelling.
Cons:
To get a really dirty and heavily distorted sound, the internal boost would not be enough. Also, a Chorus and a Reverb effect would be handy.

Great amp

Richard936, 05.09.2013
Ive had this amp for about 3 years and I can say that no matter how many amps I look at buying I always back out and stick with this one.

I find this amp great for playing metal, by that I mean Melo Death.
Ive used a range of guitars and pick up configurations ESPs, Jacksons, Ibanez and Ran. Fitted with EMGs, SDs and BKPs and the amp hasn't let me down in finding a tone I am happy with.

This amp produces a really nice range of sounds, wether they are clean all the way up to a good modern metal tone. This amp also takes pedlas very well, which is another bonus.

i really like the red box feature on this head as I can go direct into my recording interface without having to worry about waking the baby up in the next room.

The only dowside is the shared eq but H&K have sorted that issue out on the 36 watt version.
All in all a great head and one I still can't see me replacing in the near future.
