iamqman's review"Oxblood brown"

Hughes & Kettner Statesman Dual 6L6
This is the Statesman amp series from Hughes and Kettner. These amps have a polished bluesy rock quality to them. These are not the super high gainers that most of there amps lean towards. These amps have a mild voicing for classic rock and blues based music. This is a four channel or two channel amp depending on how you look at it. You get a clean with a twang boost and then the overdrive channel with a boost. So to me this is a two channel amp with four settings.

This is a 60 watt amp that has a spring reverb unit inside and three band EQ. If you play classic rock or just need an amp with a good overdrive but not a hot rod tone then this is a great amp to have. This amp houses 6L6 power tubes and it gets a better clean sound and less of a midrange boost. This is the same amp as the black version but just a cosmetic change. You get a n oxblood red/brown tolex covering. Very cool color and matches the tone of this amp much better than the black does.

SOUNDS

Very cool looking and sound amps. Built for the mild gain players and the country twang players. This amp sounds great with the 6L6 power tubes. You will get more low end tightness and less midrange growl than the El34 power tubes. You will also get a better clean tone with the 6L6 power tubes. The tone is more of a dry tone that takes pedals very well and has a great switchable effects loop.

The overdrive channel is a good overdrive for classic rock, pop, country, and jazz. This is a good channel for the guys who just need a little gain that will compliment their guitars rather then a distortion that is just screaming. These are great amps for the simple player who loves tone. What I like about this amp is that the EL84 tubes makes this amp fit better with the voicing of the amp.

The clean is very twangy and fits for pop or country picking. Use a Fender Telecaster with this channel and you feel some great quick lead plucking. Then you click on the twang boost and then you get a nice boost in the highs and there you have perfect sparkle tone that doesn't just go with country but any style of music.


OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in right at around $1000, which is a great price a very good quality build and sounding combo amplifier. This is a great two channel amp that has some good features but not too much going on that clouds the natural tone of the amp. I I would recommend this amp to anyone who need a good combo for light rock, country, or pop music.

Hughes & Kettner Statesman Dual 6L6

- Equalizer: 3-band EQ per channel

What I enjoy most:
- Having a 2nd master (switchable via footswitch) on the overdrive channel (a sound can climb easily)
- Twang on the clean channel => gave ...
- Effects loop switchable via footswitch
- Is the rverb qualitbr /> What I find damage:
- The twang is not selectable by footswitch
- The 2nd master is not switchable on the clean channel

UTILIZATION

Use of this amp is really simple.
To have a good sound: it's simple, just turn it on ... (Not hesitating to mount the volume.)
The manual is clear.

SOUNDS

So at the sound, the amp is really good.
The clean channel is its very clear. He can play different styles of normment.
For the overdrive channel, the sound is more appropriate for the style rock / blues and even hard of the 70s/80s.
That said, playing with the equalizer, it has a standard range of sounds.

Me in my group, because of Clapton, Hendrix, ACDC, Queen, Dire Straits, Scorpions, etc. ... and the amp gives terrible ...
I had the opportunity to test other amp (Peavey Classic Valvestate marshall, vox), and the Statesman is really above the rest.

Frankly, at the sound, this amp is breathtaking.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought this amp late October 2008 (for 1100 euros) and I do not regret it at all.
+ What I like:
- The sound.
- The fact that a lot of things, be switched via footswitch.
What I like -:
- Need to edit sound will appreciate the (too bad for the neighbors ...)
- The twang and the 2nd master is not selectable by footswitch (injury)
