TubeMeister Deluxe 40 takes the bestselling Meister lunchbox amp format to a whole new level, with boutique tube tones inspired by the most-loved channels of Hughes & Kettner’s award-winning TriAmp Mark 3 flagship and a bunch of killer new features to make your job as a guitar player better sounding, easier and a whole load more fun.

Whether you rock on stage, play at home or record at night, TubeMeister Deluxe 40 is the ideal amp. The real power soak lets you switch between the full 40 Watts of power, 18 Watts, 5 Watts, 1 Watt or even 0 Watts for truly silent recording at any time of day or night.

TubeMeister Deluxe 40 is the first tube amp ever to offer you a genuine FRFR (full range flat response) amp sound experience. The groundbreaking Red Box AE (Ambience Emulation) DI output lets you connect your guitar direct to your recording setup or the PA, so it’s perfect for stage and studio work—and it delivers a perfect mix of authentic 4x12 cabinet ambience effects and an ultra-direct attack of pure tube tone.

    Comments about Hughes & Kettner TubeMeister 40 Deluxe Head:

    I loved this amp except for the hum. Have two heads: EVH, Hughes 20w and wanted a midi controlled head with three good channels (EVH50 only has two volume/gain controls so 1 and 2 are really like one. Have a power conditioner and there was the 60hz hum. Even after unplugging everything cept the speaker, it was still there. Other two amps quiet as mice. I have a noise gate in the effects loop for EVH and even that didn't seem to help on this Hughes. I returned the head (sigh) maybe a bad apple, I was so hopeful.
