Everything I had hoped for and more.

The gamut of sounds and styles achievable with this mighty little combo is exceptional. It's beautifully made and has lots of features, many of which I may never use, but it is nice to know they are there. I absolutely love the power soak feature, this makes it an amp you can take from bedroom to stage.

I think it would have been a nice gesture from Hughes & Kettner to have included a foot switch as standard, rather than having to purchase one separately, given that this is not exactly a cheap combo.

A splendid place

Because I was dissatisfied with my Fender Mustang III, because I missed the real tube and the adjustment possibilities go far beyond my daily needs, I went to Thomann to Treppendorf to buy me a real Röhenverstärker. Above all, I wanted to listen to different models. My favorite was the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, as I prefer a warm cleansound and I tend stylistically towards jazz and blues. In addition, I wanted a versatile amplifier, with which I can practice both at home, as well as occur. In this respect it should be a few watts more. And finally, it should not be too much attitude-Schnickschnack. I do not have to choose between 30 amp models and 200 FXs, but I need one or two solid basic sounds.

My main concern with the Tubemeister 36 was that it has a sound that does not have enough bass and warmth. In the many Youtube videos sounded the Tubemeister usually very high-loaded, which I liked less. Most of the sound examples in the net do not refer to blues and jazz, so that only a visit to Treppendorf could bring clarity to the point. The guitars section of Thomann in Treppendorf is a real experience, so that every guitarist can only recommend a trip to the Franconian.

After testing a dozen combos, including the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, the Fender Blues Junior, the Bugera V55 and the Mesa Boogie Recto Verb, I decided to go for the Tubemeister 36. The main criterion was the versatility of the Tubemeister - not only sound, but also in terms of usability. Just one example: when you set the volume control to the first adjustable number (the 2) with the Hot Rod Deluxe, it is almost too loud for practicing at home. Probably not a criterion for the Proberaum, but for family fathers who already devote themselves to their hobby at home. Great sound, but amply impractical.

The Tubemeister 36 is suitable for every playing situation with its Power Soak. You can play it with 36.18.5 or 0 watts. For home, the 5 watts completely out and I can enjoy the complete saturation of the tubes. At the same time calms me, that I could at any time unpack the 36 watts. My concerns about the lack of depth and warmth, I could also be dissipated. The setting possibilities of the bass, mid, treble controls are very differentiated.

Actually, I am the world champion in post-conflict dissolution. There is hardly a product, which I do not find any mistakes in hindsight. At the Hughes & Kettner Tubemeister 36 combo I found after over 4 weeks of intensive testing nothing that would bother me. I am absolutely enthusiastic: Wonderful tube sound, craftsmanship 1A processed, soundly flexible from jazz to rock and usability is second to none. Clear purchase recommendation for those who have the courage to orient themselves not only to retromodels.
