    20180825_204646.jpg This amp is fantastic. I bought a new Peavey 20 Mini a month ago but wasn't really digging it. Running in ABY setup with a Blackstar Studio 20 I just couldn't blend them like I had hoped to. Problem solved. And then some

    Nice... supposed to be very good flexible amplifiers, with some nice features. I haven’t managed to play one myself but they showed up in my research during the great 2016 amplifier hunt!

    If you get the chance to try one out then go for it. As soon as I hit the second chord I knew it was mine

    I have to agree on how good these H&K amps are. I got the 18W 1x12 combo in February of this year - I'm very pleased with this amp indeed.

    I can’t see any tube glow for all of the accessories lights there.

    It might sound great, but it looks a little cheesy to me. Disco night ...

    The blue glow is what makes these amps.

    I do like the look but it was also just the sound I was looking for

    And since name of this particular forum is Glowing Bottle Tube Amps I figured this fit right in

    I own one of these too. Great sounding amp and incomparably versatile. Lately I prefer super-simple so my old reliable Pro Jr., and my brand new (to me) Victoria 20112 (Fender 57 Custom Deluxe clone) are seeing all the action. But the H & K Tubemeister 36 is a super amp. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!

    Always loved the look of those amps. Never got to try one yet.

    Highly considering one of these. Any of you guys using it for country music?

    I'm not a country player but this amp could handle it. The way the volume, gain and tone knobs interact you can get pretty much any tone you'd like

    I have owned pretty much every version of the Tubemeister line over the last 10 yrs and can second the fact they are killer amps. I have also tried every available tube arrangement imaginable so when your ready to tame some of that brightness these amps are always complained about having too much of let me know. I can save you lots of time and money. They really aren't overly bright as people claim but actually lack enough bass to most people's taste which can be improved by the right pre tube selection greatly. Of course speaker choice is always the biggest factor

    I dont have any issues with overly bright. I use a 1-12 cab with a V30. I'm seriously thinking about a 2-12 V30 cab. Then I can use the cab I have on it now for it's original intent. An extension cab for the Blackstar I have in here as well. I run them in stereo
