Overview

The TubeMeister 5 tube guitar combo is a testament to the wisdom and passion of Mr. Hughes and Herr Kettner. The preamp has a wealth of sonic riches. A flip of the Drive switch is all it takes to go from clean to mean. The power amp sports oversized transformers and a 12BH7 dual triode that operates in push-pull mode. Housed in a single glass envelope, these two tube systems deliver a devastating one-two punch that will rock your tone!

The TubeMeister 5 is super compact, but offers delivers the same response and transcendent tone as the head. Housed in a custom-designed enclosure with a Celestion 8" speaker. If you need to keep it soft in the studio the Red Box and power-soak are on board to feed true power amp tone straight to the desk.

Comments about Hughes & Kettner TubeMeister 5 5W 1x8 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

Got this a few weeks ago and have been very happy with it. Sounds excellent on both channels. No foot-switch which is a bit of a bummer, but does not reflect on the quality of the amp. Lots of tonal variety even though it is just straight up 3 band EQ and a Gain dial. For a small amp it sounds tremendous! Very "thick" and substantial sound but without being muddled or unclear. The cleans are great, but don't expect VOX chime. They are different but very crisp and nice. The DRIVE channel is killer... my favorite. Likes my Les Pauls a lot. Lots of bite and snarl. For a small tube amp it is loud and clear. Very well made. Get a new one though... I initially bought a "factory re-stock" model but some of the screws were stripped and loose. Didn't affect the sound but I like things put together properly, which the new one was. Overall, a great purchase that I would recommend.
