Hughes & Kettner AmpMan Modern


Expected in 14 days

Hughes & Kettner AmpMan Modern is a two channel, 50 Watt, professional amp with build in Spirit Tone Generator and Red Box AE+. The Spirit Tone Generator is now available in a compact pedal format. With connoisseur tone-shaping capabilities, impressive power and a comprehensive set of professional features in a handsome little box, AmpMan is the go-to solution on stage, at home and in the studio.

All that musical might comes courtesy of the specially developed Ultra Response power amp. Cranking out up to 50 watts of deliciously dynamic power, its punch and feel rivals that of any similarly rated tube power amp. It sends every single watt to the speaker with that spine-tingling dynamic response intact and translated into impressive sound pressure.

The Spirit Tone Generator technology faithfully recreates the natural yet wildly complex interactions of traditional tube amp circuits in a ‘bionic’ way. This miniature masterpiece distills the essence of tube amp physics, with all of the intensity and responsive tonal behaviour, into a compact, strictly analog circuit that promises unbridled playing pleasure.

The Sagging knob affords you instant access to the stuff of legends – that is, to the sound of a cranked amp on the verge of meltdown; to that magical energy that can not only be heard, but also felt. A sensitive tool, this control dials in everything from totally dry to heavily compressed and all points in between.

AmpMan features two fully independent channels with dedicated Gain, Tone, Resonance, Presence, Sagging and Volume controls and pre-gain Boost fine-tuned for that channel. This means you don’t have to entertain any compromises when voicing channels and setting volume levels. Total tonal freedom is within easy reach!

Channel 1 of the Modern is the same as the Classic AmpMan and serves up a sensuous experience in sound with all the immediacy and liveliness of single-channel amps with no master knob. These are the iconic sounds of the ‘60s and early ‘70s pioneered by the rebels who created the blueprint for rockin’ tone. This channel’s hallmarks are its wide dynamic range and touch-sensitive response to your phrasing.

Channel 2 is the stairway to high-gain heaven. Its Tone, Presence and Resonance knobs take you on a tour of entire genres of metal, from that classic macho midrange to modern scooped sounds. The Sagging knob greases the gears so that tone flies from your fingertips with endless sustain and the kind of creamy overtones that let lead lines soar. Riffing requires the opposite, tighter tone and hair-trigger response. Roll back the Sagging knob, and the power amp responds ultra fast.
