The Hughes & Kettner TubeMeister Deluxe 20 is a 20W tube amplifier head designed to provide versatile tones and selectable power output for guitarists in rehearsals, recording sessions, and live performances. It features two 12AX7 preamp tubes and two EL84 power tubes capable of driving an 8 to 16 Ohms speaker cabinet via a 1/4" speaker output. Front-panel switches allow easy toggling of clean or lead channel selection and boost for the lead channel.
Power output is selectable thanks to a power soak switch with four positions—20W, 5W, 1W, and speaker off. Use the treble, mid, and bass equalization controls to sculpt your sound and integrate stompboxes via the 1/4" serial effects loop. An XLR 3-pin output delivers a balanced DI output for direct connection to a mixing console or audio interface. Red Box AE (ambience emulation) brings configurable cabinet emulation with choices including vintage, modern, small, large, line, and mic.
Integrated TSC (Tube Safety Control) keeps the tubes biased properly and shows tube status via two rear-panel LEDs. For increased protection during transport and storage, the TubeMeister Deluxe 20 is supplied with a protective carry bag.
