Love this amp for blues

12.11.2015
Amazing little combo. Loud and tons of clean headroom. Even on one watt I only have the volume around 4 or 5 to play in my room.

The gain does very little on the clean channel and doesn't do that much on the lead channel to be honest. But when the lead boost kicks in it really dirties up. I have a Marshall JVM if I want dirty though, that's not why I bought this amp.

I prefer it on the clean channel for blues lead, with a drive/reverb pedal (Turnip Greens) rather than using the amp gain or reverb. In fact the amp reverb also does very little until it is almost at max.

All told, a loud and very beautiful sounding, crystal clean little amp. I'm very, very happy with it. It takes pedals well. I like it best with the pedal volume low, the pedal gain high and the amp gain off. That gives a lovely creamy sustain with no roughness to it.

H&K Tubemeister 18 Twelve

Frane, 24.08.2016
Wow!

Use : I'm using this amp for gigs and for practicing at home!

Clarity : I sold my trusty H&K Statesman Dual 6l6 and was looking for smaller tube amp with same characteristics and decided to buy Tubemeister after consulting with H&K team.

Pros & Cons : First of all,I was really impressed with amp design and weight.After I powered it up for a first time I was waiting about 1 minute for tubes to warm up.

1 WATT :
Clean channel sound absolutely amazing.With gain and master set up to noon and EQ knobs set at noon,I get just what I wanted.Pure clean sound with clear highs,smooth mids and defined round bass.
Second channel sounds like a tube screamer in front of clean amp with gain knob set about 11 o'clock.
With gain set up like 3 o'clock you really can get close to
JTM45 type of overdrive and with boost engaged,you are in metal territory.
EQ is not very responsive but you already have great sounding amp and if you want to color it just a bit,you'll be able to do it.
5W,18W are normally louder and tubes break up faster.Sound is more rounded and I recommend to put this amp to 5W mode if you are micing you amp at stage cause in case of 18W operation,you'll make def your band mates :)
Red Box ( speaker sim ) option is good if you record clean channel of this amp but when turned to second channel,It was too fizzy.I don't use this mode anyway so i really don't care!
Amp has digital reverb and FX Loop.

Cons : None

After all,this is great sounding amp.If you want a tube amp which sounds good,is easy to carry,you just can't buy anything so versatile for this price.Go and grab one in Thomann music store!

Great communication and service from Thomann as always!
