Overview

The Kustom HV65 tube/hybrid 1x12 combo amplifier has two channels, each with Gain and Master Volume controls. This Dual Master system lets players easily get natural tube overdrive and compression on the Rhythm channel as well as the Lead channel, for even more tonal options. The HV EQ consists of passive Bass, Middle and Treble controls that are the same specifications as Kustom's award-winning, all-tube Coupe amplifiers. The HV65's speaker-emulated Direct Out and variable Volume Boost controls are also borrowed from the Coupe.

An all-new 24-Bit Digital Multi-Effects System has been created exclusively for the HV. It offers 16 high fidelity, programmable effects with increased flexibility thanks to "Tap" or "Toggle" functions for each effect, letting players fine-tune their choices. For example, Delay times, Reverb tails and Tremolo speeds can all be tapped to desired settings. Alternately, the Spring Reverb effect can be toggled between three different tonal selections reminiscent of the Coupe reverb; the Rotary Speaker can be ramped between speeds; and the Octave selection can be toggled to choose Octave Up or Octave Down. In all, the new HV65 Multi-Effects system provides stunning effects with unsurpassed flexibility, but without undue complexity.

New cabinet construction methods have been developed to enhance the resonance and musicality of the HV65 amplifier. In addition to crafting the cabinet to flex in response to the sound pressure, the electronic chassis is mounted in a way that doesn't impede the ability of the cabinet to resonate properly, an often overlooked element in the production of good tone.

The powerful Kustom HV65 combines 65 watts and one 12-inch Celestion. Visually, the HV65 sports vents on the top panel and a cool, rear-panel cutaway with mesh screen to view the preamp tube inside the chassis. Other details include new die-cast Kustom logos, jet-black grill cloth, white piping and black leather handles.

The Kustom HV65 Combo utilizes an exclusive new preamp circuit developed by James Brown, acclaimed amplifier designer and Kustom's chief engineer. The HV Series' preamp combines a 12AX7 tube - known for its robust tonal qualities - with solid-state circuitry known for its consistency and reliability.

Great Sonds, Great Value

By Strangeman

from Land o' Jackrabbits, Nevada

Comments about Kustom HV65 High Voltage Series 65W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

This amp really puts out a lot of varied sonic goodness. It is great clean, has bruising drive, can be fat, scooped. The two channels-rhythm and lead- are very different in their sensitivity, but both can be dialed in for some serious crunch as each has a drive and master volume. Nice little tweaks are possible with the fat/lean (rhythm) and grand/punch (lead) buttons. The Celestion speaker hangs in there at high volume so you can really upset the neighbors w/o the sound becoming muddy. The effects section is OK but a bit limited. The reverbs and echos are certainly a nice thing to have. The chorus is a bit weak and the rotory speaker emulation seems a bit like tremelo. Again, the effect section provides some extra tweaks which are fun to play with, but the strength of the the amp is definitely in its basic function. The controls are feel solid and of good quality. The built-in telt legs are a very cool little feature. All-in-all, I've very happy with the purchase I look forward to crankin' out some righteous tunes with this amp.

Amazing Amp

By MW

from Ohio

Comments about Kustom HV65 High Voltage Series 65W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I got this amp, and it was amazing. It has around twenty built in effects, and always gets the job done. Great for on stage. It even has built in legs to get your amp off the ground when needed.
