After Months of looking for a new amp, finally, it arrived



It's a Hughes and Kettner Statesman dual el34 head. It cost me 550 euros.

It is basically a two channel amp. The clean channel is very full sounding. The trebles can be slightly boosted with a so-called "twang" button. It also gets very loud without breaking up.
The drive channel is a completely different beast. It gets you a great straightforward rock tone for rythm, or when you use teh included boost switch it gets you creamy lead tones. What I find annoying about this amp, is that the gain difference between the two channels is too big and I haven't been able to dial in a slight crunch tone without using any pedals. Another cool feature is the "2nd volume" it can be activated via footswitch and boosts the drive channel even more (it can also be used to slightly reduce volume). The amp also has a very nice sounding Spring reverb.

Happy new amp day Looks really cool. I figure it's more of a classic rock amp than a metal or pop amp? It seems to have that classic twang clean and warm mid-gain lead Congratulations

It doesn't really do metal, it doesn't have enough gain for that (you could try boosting it with a ts though). I play mostly on the clean channel, which sounds pretty good for jazzy stuff and amazing for clean type blues. The drive channel is a ton of fun too though

Seems like a really good amp for some less modern music Looks cool visually too

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

If only I were the only one at home right now. I don't need my parents asking who Mr. Wiggles is.

Well I'd love to, but I don't currently own any recording gear (except for my bros WeSing mic if that counts I don't think that would yield any usable results, I'll try tomorrow though )
