    FYI the JJ tubes in this thing apparently juice it quite a bit compared to the regular ones. No wonder I love it. Girlfriend also really loves the 1 watt option!!!

    So much win in this thing! I'll see about a sound clip a little later today....

    So, like between those two I have:

    5 flavors of clean channel, at 1, 5, 18, 50, or 100 watts
    5 flavors of dirt, at 1, 5, 18, 50, or 100 watts, plus bold/spongy and tube/silicon rectifiers on the 50/100 levels

    If I can't find a happy tone for the occasion there, well, I just suck!


    Early HK Impressions: Thick, clean, interesting controls. I like it! Plus, cool blue light!

    * First trip out was using Duncan 103 neck and JB8 Bridge.

    I'll be very surprised if you don't like that amp, man.
    It's a damn good piece of gear and I actually went back and forth about replacing my Tweaker with it a few years ago.

    If you want a more "classic" driven tone out of it, you can always Marshall it up with your Joyo Us Dream or another pedal that has some of that going on.
    But as you probably already know, that amp wants to go really heavy and saturated.

    They are way too 80s sounding for me so I imagine they're perfect for you.

    I have the anniversary edition, and it’s a solid little amp. It’s modern and kind of hi-fi. It doesn’t sound like a clone of anything I’m familiar with, which means I don’t compare it with other amps that way. The Tubemeister 18 is the best Tubemeister 18 out there.

    I have a friend who owns a Marshall and a Splawn, but shows up most of the time with that little H&K Tubemeister 18. He gets what he wants out of it, and it's so darn easy to take with ya.

    That head is excellent IMO if you're into that kind of saturated, thick modern tone. It's damn good at that. It's got legit cleans, no idea how they hold up when cranked tho. No experience with the newer ones here. You can always flip it if it doesn't work for you, which would be odd.

    I say go for it.
