This a company who designs high quality guitar amps for touring musicians and the average consumer. They have amps for just about every player and just about every musical style that you can think of. They have even drwan some fan fair from some bigs names in the guitar world. A couple big names have picked up amps from Hughes and Kettner including Alex Lifeson from the band Rush and Tommy Thayer from the band Kiss. Those two gentlemen have their own signature models but they have used been great artist for this company. Their guitar amps that range from just a few hundred dollars to several thousand.

This is a solid state amp from the fellas over at Hughes and Kettner. This amp has three channels and 100 watts of power. Why on earth would you need 100 watts of solid state power is beyond me. Either way you get a a decent amp for practicing and playing at home.

SOUNDS

This amp has a nice clean channel. The channel has a good fat one to it that makes it probably the best channel on the amp. The next channel is the crunch channel. This is a channel for you to dial in some good old classic rock tone or some nice bubblegum pop stuff. This channel will also clean on the guitar's volume knob. The next and final channel is the lead channel. It does get some hair on it very easily. You can get this channel cooking to do some nu metal stuff and some over the top killer distortions sounds. I wouldn't call it tone because a solid state amp has no felling or dynamics in my opinion. So I wouldn't say this amp has any tone but just sounds. It is better than some of the Vox and Fender solid state but it still just doesn't have that girth and punch that an all tube valve amp would have.

OVERALL OPINION

These amps have long been discontinued and so the used market is the only route for these amps. I am not exactly sure what the going rate for these amps are on the used market. There are much better solid state amps out there but it is a decent one if you can get a good price or deal on one.
