Brilliant Little Amp

03.06.2016
What can I say.
I've never owned a H&K before as they always seemed to ahve a harsh high end on gain channels.
This little beast is fantastic and I got some great tone with my Les Pauls, nice and thick tone. Nice n Jangly with single coils too
Works well with pedals, boosting with some Klon type clones as well as Tubescreamer type pedals work a treat, so you can really get the tone you're looking for either way. Delays, Reverbs and Chorus are great in the loop too.
It feels rock solid and is built very well, looks cool when on.
The redbox feature is brilliant and gives more options than just an 1 emulated out like some amps offer.
Great little amp

The probably best Hughes & Kettner Amp ...

StratoHarry, 27.02.2017
... this judgment I dare because I had a Tubemeister 18 for five years and then a Grandmaster 36 for six months (in addition, further tube amps like Engl Savage, Marshall Haze, Fender Blues Junior).

With two problems I had always had to fight with my TM 18: 1. with the not so well matched clean and lead channels, which share an EQ, and 2. with the fizzigen sound in the lead channel.

Then I switched to the Grandmaster 36, who is supposed to be the egg-laying Wollmilchsau for guitarists. But here I found only two channels well: the crunch and the ultra channel. The clean did not go so nicely in the saturation as with the TM 18 and the leadchannel was circular saw pure. And somehow the 128 preset MIDI monster is not intended for the concept with pedals (Rodenberg GAS, Simble Prediver, TC Flashback X4) in front of the amp. So, back to the roots and equal the Tubemeister 20 Deluxe ordered.

The Hughes & Kettner Tubemeister 20 Deluxe is awesome. So awesome, that I now consider him the best of the amps I have ever played.

The smaller Tubemeister 20 Deluxe sounds on both channels + Boost with SingleCoils rounder, richer and has much more foundation than the Grandmaster 36. The GM 36 sounded much sterile, colorless, yes in the Cleanchannel even very thin and characterless.

The TM 20 can be super-saturated, both from the preamp (gain) and from the output stage (master). If you turn it on both channels, it will not be fizier, thinner, shrieking, but really bold, transparent, oppressive, creamy. None! You can also use the volume poti to get more sounds and play beautifully dynamically. What you can get from your fingers and the guitar, the TM 20 brings very directly over. The leadchannel is significantly rounded and richer than the TM 18 and GM 36. Brownsound pur! And then the booster to it, and Mr. John Petrucci will even greet you on a Strat.

The TM 20 is, in contrast to the GM 36, very pedal-friendly. The two channels are perfectly matched to each other, without having to re-adjust the EQ. By the Powersoak (1W, 5W, 20W) one can use the final stage correctly. Very professional clean- and Bluessounds pamper the ear of the ever-seeking guitarist for perfection. The Leadchannel delivers Brownsound that will bring you a tear for joy and - if you will - can also get HighGain without end. Geiles part, this small TM 20. Deluxe means here in the literal sense Deluxe!

The operation is so simple and self explanatory, that there is actually no manual needed. The amp can be operated intuitively as a separate instrument. The features, which H & K in the small reinpackt, are from the price-performance ratio phenomenal (TSC, Redbox, Powersoak, 2 channels + boost, effect loop, etc.). The sound is from the genes H & K, but clearly better than the TM 18 and GM 36. In the processing, such established companies as Fender - despite Made in China - can cut off a very thick disk. Everything has the highest quality and stability - and it is also, because I have already through the TM 18 with different clubs, Proberäumen and on different stages.

Conclusion: This TM 20 Deluxe has done it to me. This is my amp, which makes all my pedals genial, sounds even more brilliant and my Eric Johnson Strat is so brightly lit with a unique sound concept that just happens with Singlecoils an apotheosis. The actually for me the best Hughes & Kettner Amp, which one can currently get.
