A huge range of amazing tones, and iPad and Android connectivity.

The GrandMeister 36 is an all-analog tube amp with four independent channels: Clean, Crunch, Lead, and Ultra. The 36 watts 4x EL84 power amp is based on the TubeMeister 36, but the 3x 12AX7 preamp is completely redesigned and offers the widest tonal spectrum H&K has ever included in an amp, from sparkling clean to highest gain. Independent gain, master, EQ settings and even presence and resonance control plus a switchable boost for each channel provide you with all the versatility a guitarist could wish for.

How? The GrandMeister’s Smart Rotary Controls allow each channel to have its own set of controls with only a minimum of pots since each control is fully remote controllable and programmable. That means you can create any sound you want, store it on 128 presets, and recall it via MIDI controller, interface or your iPad. Yes, the complimentary app for iPad enables you to check the setting of every single control, adjust them, assign names to the presets, and remote control the amp with your iPad — everything in real time. And the best news: the remote control is just the icing on the cake — all controls are accessible directly on the amp or the matching MIDI board FSM 432 MK III (sold separately).

Note: The GM36 remote app does not contain preset data. However, it does show the values of presets (the position of each knob and switch) stored in a GrandMeister 36 that is connected to your iPad and Android via MIDI. GM36 Remote app for iPad and Android lets you:
Watch and touch settings of analog tube tone on your iPad and Android
Add names to your amp´s preset numbers
Benefit from extended effects control
Remote control your tone in realtime

And if you still feel there is something missing you might want to take advantage of the onboard effects and add some delay, chorus or one of the other modulation effects. By simply pressing FX ACCESS you can make the Smart Rotary Controls for the channel settings now work as effects controls, which keeps your user interface well structured and clear. The GrandMeister is also equipped with digital reverb as well as an intelligent dual break point noise gate, measuring the guitar signal at the input, but cutting the noise between the preamp and effects loop.

However, the GrandMeister wouldn’t be called a Meister if it weren’t for all the great features that made the Meister series so successful. The Power Soak is capable of converting the amp’s output into heat and tone and thereby gives you the opportunity to break 36 watts down to 18, 5, 1 and 0 watts — it goes without saying that the Power Soak is programmable and controllable via MIDI as well. Hence you can enjoy the full tube sound at home without annoying your neighbors and even do silent recording at night. The built- in RED BOX genuinely simulates a 4x12” cabinet and sends the signal directly into the mixer, which makes it an amazingly helpful tool in the studio as well as on stage. And last but not least: The TSC (Tube Safety Control) is an automated system that constantly monitors and readjusts the bias to ensure the power tubes operate reliably and deliver the best possible tone.

The GrandMeister is a dream amp for every guitarist who wishes for unlimited access to great tube tone, including effects — all at a touch of a button.

  • Almost Perfect

    As reviewed by CARL STEEN on 4/18/2014

    This amp I recieved yesterday on my Birthday Ironically. It has all the features I have been in search of, 4 programable tube channels, along with effects and programable presence and resonance for 127 patches. Programable series effects loop, power attenuating PA,1,5,18, and 36 watt. Built in programable noise gate, redbox direct out along with a pre line out. It weighs 17lbs, is compact and comes with an efficient soft case. I have gave this amp a 4 rating and claim it to be almost perfect due to the limited effect control and quality, I'm spoiled with my Axe-Fx II. This amp relly sounds great and feels good under my fingers. It is alittle brite or brittle but I believe with more time into it I can EQ it to my tone standards. This is the design I have been searching for a along time. Perhaps a better set of tubes may be in order for this amp to perfect it. Great job Hughes & Kettner.
