iamqman's review"Decent combo for solid state tones"

Hughes & Kettner Warp 212
Hughes and Kettner have some of the best sounding amplifiers on the planet. This a German company who designs high quality guitar amps for touring musicians and the average consumer. They guitar amps that range from just a few hundred dollars to several thousand.

Some big names have pickup amps from Hughes and Kettner including Alex Lifeson from the band Rush and Tommy Thayer from the band Kiss. Those two gentlemen have their own signature models but they have used been great artist for this company.

This amp is the same amp as the head version of the Warp 7 but just in a combo version. You get the same features and tone as you would the head no no loss in tone and functionality.

An FX loop is on board ready to accept your fave multi-effector; an optional footswitch lets you switch channels (CLEAN/WARP) remotely.

This was a very cool amp when they were manufacturing them. The speakers are a nice frequency that matches the voicing of this amp quite well. It had a nice growl to it with an ultra high gain metal voicing. These were for the metal Norwegian shredders and nu-metal type of players. It has decent clean channel but let's face don't buy this amp for the clean channel. In my opinion it doesn't really need it as you aren't buying for clean but the super modern voicing and gain. However, it is a nice feature to have on tap just in case.

This amp takes any guitar well. You play anything with this amp and get a decent tone. With most Hughes and Kettner amps I like to play them with a good guitar with a humbucker style pickup installed. The highlight the gain very well in their amps and god humbucker sits nice with their voicing.


These guitar amps have long been discontinued. So the use market is the only way to go with these amps now a days. They can be found pretty cheap in the classifieds and ebay. I have seen them go used for right around $200, which is a steal of a price for this combo. If you need a decent solid state amp that you can play at home silently with the headphone hook up or an amp that has an MP3 hook up then this is good one.

It is a transistor amplifier with an output of 100watt. It possde 2 Celestion HP specially designed for the "Gors sound." The inputs and outputs are in the facade and there is everything you need (input, footswitch FX send and return, and also the headphone output.
It possde 2 channels: Clean and Warp.
The 9 is for the hardware provided in relation to price, perhaps not the best gear but for the price I thought it was super attractive (600euros). In addition, it is much less than 2 emcombrant body ... and I find it quite nice with the "WARP 7" which lights up red!


The configuration is very simple and super rglages simple (like all the amps what!)
It took barely 5 minutes by my watch out for a sound with a big potato.
The manual is very simple ... there must be 2 or 3 pages in french (but anyway I have not read!)


I made the metal and I seek to have a big sound so it suits me perfectly. Also as yet a student, I was pleased to be able to buy an amp that can get this type of sound for a low price (and yes everyone can not afford to pay a triple Rectifier).
I play it with the 7-string Ibanez (RG7321 and AX7221) and I can tell you that indeed he does better sound out of seventh chords. I have a Korg AX1500G also for the effects, unfortunately I can not pdalier not control the Warp (impossible to spend the WARP's a clean sound from pdalier), for this Because I intend to buy a Boss GT6 soon as a function Pipelines Limited for the above problem (and yes they think everything at Boss).
To return the amp's only problem is the sound clean home is cold and souls (a score of 8) ... but hey I bought it for distortion so I do not care a bit (more with a simulated tube amp of any type of multi effect is prob rsolu).
But hey, you need to remember is that the Warp and many hard ca


So, here I am rather happy! I play with BPS for 3 months and he has not dcu (no prob to go over the battery (and I was only half the power ...).
Warp channel is perfect for meatl (not seulmen No. ..). Before I had a 100watt marshall combo, and I do not regret pa for making this change.
The report is excellent quality price (600euros aprsngociation ... ps: do not be fooled by sellers who do a 750, it is thieves!).
Given my budget style of music I made, I Whereas there was no better choice!

Comprehensive enough for the price, but do not expect anything to clean and beautiful ... against it by no reverb, which is no worse in many styles of music, or conversely, may been a handicap for others ....


We can use simpler!
We find the sound you want very quickly.


It is the fish a little ... Let's say that this amp is very good to start in a style that metal demende not too accurate. For example the basic death, the HxC not too technical, or Neo, the it goes.
Note that the clean sound is nothing clean and beautiful, in contrast to which is boasted on the website of H & K. ..


I use it for 3 years.
At first I thought it was really good, but as a position that I wanted to find her sound more precise, it was not possible on this amp, the report cependent qulité price and more positive.
To take an opportunity for beginners in the metal.
