Tubemeister 36 Review, your portable pal?

Bernadette W., 18.05.2013
I'm a boogie/fender user and this amp is used for home & smaller gigs. 1st off, it's suprisingly small, about the size of a toaster. Don't let the size fool you, this amp is very powerful indeed. Nice be fat lows which don't break up when sparkling clean. The clean is very bell-like but not cheap sounding and is probably my favourite channel in the amp.
The 2nd channel is also very nice but can get raspy at higher gains. I like the tone and the low to medium settings, anything beyond medium and its starts sounding like a marshall which I personally dont like.
The 3rd channel is my least favourite but again, at lower gain settings sounds better.
Overall, I love the fact that the channels can be changed via midi. I use a couple of midi controlled rack units and this is so easy to program.

The power soak opens up very different tones and gains but in truth, I haven't experimented too much with that yet.

The red box di sounds excellent and is great for wet/dry/wet setups. I really like that the amp automatically puts a dummy load across the speaker output if nothing is connected, a safety feature that all manufacturers should consider as standard with their amps!

The front panel layout is a little unusual for someone not used to H&K but it is intuitive. The amp looks incredible when lit up and the included padded bag is a very welcome addition. This won't stay in the van but I can walk into a gig with my guitar and amp in 1 lift!

Highly recommended if you're open to something thats sounds a little different. Very practical and portable. I would replace it if I lost it.

Give it a little time and effort

Infestissumam, 30.05.2014
You can't help but like this little amp as soon as you switch it on and it goes blue.
The size of it is very convenient, easy to transport(nice bag included). The 36 watts is very loud, especially when ran through a 4x12, probably well enough for most situations.
Many nice functions, like the built-in attenuator which in the 1 watt-mode gives you nice poweramp-tube distortion without making your ears bleed.
The clean sound is wonderful, in the 36 watt-mode you have plenty of headroom to keep the cleans from breaking up.
The distorted sound are also very good but you really have to spend some time with the EQ to find the sweet-spot. At first I ended up with a annoying thin fuzzy sound and was a bit disappointed until I discovered that I had to forget everything about EQ-settings on my other amps, this one feels really different. Especially the treble pot has to be handled with care cause it seems as it not only pulls up the highs when rolled on but kind of backs off the lows as well.
So, if you have the patience to tweak it a bit, you will find all the tones you like in there.
(Edit) I replaced the "no-name" chinese-made tubes(both preamp- & powertubes) with tubes from a well-known manufacturer and the sharp-difficult-to-control-high-end was all gone! Not only did I get sweeter trebles but the mids were meatier as well. Very much improvement at a pretty small cost. (Edit)
