Grand & Deluxe - the all new Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister Deluxe 40

Combining deluxe tube tone with smart operating technology, the Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister Deluxe 40 features four channels that let you find your dream tones, whatever your taste. Add to this the onboard FX section and the FX loop and you have the perfect workhorse to master every gig. 

Ultra-compact, portable and easy to use, the GM40H’s inspiring all-tube Deluxe Tone Technology ensures that each channel has its own unique character, gain structure and overtone spectrum. Warm Cleans, classic Crunch, pure Lead brown sounds and dynamic Ultra high gain tones can be mated to the onboard studio quality Reverb, Delay and Modulation effects, giving you all you need for most situations. Meanwhile, the channel- tailored boost differs in volume and frequency as you switch between channels, expanding your tonal palette as four different stomp boxes would do. 

Thanks to the smart rotary controls, all settings can be stored and recalled putting a wealth of tube tones at your fingertips. Create up to 128 sound presets and access them at the touch of a button with the optional FSM432 MK III MIDI foot controller.

Other features include the Power Soak and the new RedBox DI with Ambience Emulation. The Power Soak allows you full tube saturation at any volume level, even in silent mode, which is perfect for playing at home and recording at night, whilst the Red Box AE DI Out provides the most authentic speaker simulation and ambience emulation on the market and enables convenient direct-to-desk operation in both live and studio situations.

A handy Noise Gate measures the guitars signal at the input, but cuts noise in-between the preamp and the effects loop. This is the fastest and most musical noise gate in the world, and the GM40H’s inbuilt TSC - Tube Safety Control - constantly monitors and readjusts the bias of each power amp tube, ensuring that the tubes always sound great and live longer.

And is if that isn't enough the free App for iPad makes the GM40H the only remote controllable all-tube amp in the world. It lets you manage your presets and control remotely in real time, with all the amp’s controls available simultaneously on one screen, and can be wired with either an iRig interface or cable-free with the optional Hughes & Kettner WMI-1 Wi-Fi wireless MIDI interface.

Finally, 40 watts of pure tube power plus oversized transformers gives you plenty of power and headroom to Rock on Stage.
