Hughes&Kettner Black Spirit 200 Head

Amp Head for Electric Guitar

Great sounding Amp!
RomadDan, 29.01.2020
I bought this amp for a few reasons:
1- Duel Voltage (100-220) this is great if you live in the Americas /Japan and moving or traveling to Europe or visa versa. This was a major reason for me as I’m scheduled to move the the U.S. in a year or so.
2- This amp is multi wattage (2/20/200 selectable) so no matter what size room I’m playing in a have a wattage to match and get a great sound... Speaking of...
3- This amp sounds great! Like clean? You got it! Light break-up on a clean channel? Yep speak of if you a little gain to the clean it sounds AMAZING and warm - and very responsive- best I’ve heard.
Crunch and Lead is where I spend most of my time and well? What can I say, I really like what I can do and the sounds I can get with these channels.
The Ultra channel has a little to much Gain for me so I don’t spend to much time playing here but I’ll tell it does "chug".

I do have two cons:
1- The foot pedal is not included (which is okay) but the cost of the pedal is pretty expensive in my opinion. With that said though it is well made.
2-The buttons and knobs feel a little cheap. The buttons in particular seem real cheap which I find disappointing considering the price point and the quality of other H&K amps.

Overall I’m very happy with the amp and would recommend to anyone looking for this type of amp.

Sometimes things that seem to be too good to be true actually are!
Dan936, 01.10.2019
I’ve been an hk user for years, switchblades. I was really tossing up between this and the gmd 40, in the end I liked all functionality and robustness as well as size and weight of this so thought I’d take a chance and keep my old valve amps as a back up. I was not disappointed! I’m getting amazing tones out of this straight from the box. It feels very valve like to play and has so much headroom on the clean. I’m loving the distorted tones and the whole thing feels more linear than valves and it is super sensitive to where you set the guitar volume and how hard you hit the strings so it adds a new dimension for me. Th app is brilliant and easy to use and I love you can stream music to it. A great practice and live amp. Love it and didn’t expect to

Tube amp killer!
BTTX, 26.02.2020
I was always a tube amp guy (owned multiple tube amps, rack gear etc.) and I was blown away by this amp. It may not sound perfect out of the box, but if you take some time and allow yourself to dial it in, you shall be blown away by the sound! Even if I still own a couple of tube amps, this is and will be my main go to amp and the main live rig as it is amazing, full of functions and perfectly controllable with any midi pedal controller. There are only three words to describe it perfectly. Awesome, awesome and (you know it) AWESOME!
