A highly advanced classic amp.
The Hughes & Kettner Satesman Series STM Quad EL84 is a tube guitar combo amp that moves some serious air. Kicking like a mule with its 40W thump, the STM Quad EL84 is a beast that is sure to keep every rhythm section at a respectful distance.
Beauty and the Beast
Sinfully sweet American clean with a touch of hillbilly twang? Oh, yes. Rough-and-ready British rock in all its raging glory? Oh, yes. In one amp? Oh, no. They said it couldn't be done; the sonic divide was simply too wide.
They said if you want both worlds of tone and are unwilling to settle for less, you would have to take two amps to the stage. They said the warm airy tone of an open back combo and the fat, focused power of a 4 x 12 rock rig were incompatible —beauty and the beast, never to be caged together. And they said this wish, long harbored by players seeking a more versatile rig, would forever remain unfulfilled.
German Attention To Detail
What makes the various breeds of vintage amps shine is the trademark tone produced by a particular design. Hughes & Kettner set out to conjure the sonic magic of gratifying tone, albeit in versatile amps. For 25 years, Hughes & Kettner engineers have made it their mission to decode the DNA of the most diverse guitar sounds, analyzing everything from input jacks to the architecture of housings. Armed with this insight, inspired by tradition, and driven by the desire to create something fresh and exciting for forward-looking players, they turned up a string of celebrated sound-sculpting implements, including the TubeTools line and the TriAmp. Now all the knowledge gathered along the way birthed an unprecedented amp design. At its heart is circuitry that stretches the boundaries of tube technology: Switching from Clean to Drive restructures the preamp circuits completely. What's more, current feedback is also switched, tailoring the power amp's characteristics to suit the given preamp channel. The Statesman's housing translates this revolutionary tube technology into sound pressure. It's a classic case of applied physics culminating in art: This housing, in combination with the Eminence speaker custom-designed for the Statesman, delivers both authentic combo and stack tone.
By employing cutting-edge engineering and wedding it to classic tube craft to create today's most advanced classic amp design, Statesman stands as a testament to Hughes & Kettner's Technology of Tone.
Total Tonal Freedom!
The elegant Statesman's many custom features make it a boutique instrument. Dedicated Reverb Balance knobs match the built-in Accutronics reverb to each channel. A push of the Clean channel Twang button takes you from the sound that sparked the British Invasion to star-spangled California clean. The Drive channel's Boost button sweeps from the throaty rasp of the early rock 'n' roll years to the raging rock of the high-octane‚ '80s and beyond. The EL34 head and 6L6 combo's Drive channel even offers a second, separately adjustable Master. A simple twist of the wrist is all it takes to push your leads up front and center! Classic sound paired with modern-day versatility - this symbiosis is what makes the Statesman such a class act. Discover Statesman and discover what it means to make chicken-skin music.
