iamqman's review"Classy look to a classy amp"

Hughes & Kettner Statesman Quad EL84
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 40 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 is the exact same amp as the black tolex version but just in a cool brown oxblood tolex covering. This amp is more towards the country and clean side of amps and this country looking tolex better matches the vibe of this amp. The exact same features as the black standard.

SOUNDS

There is no change in tone from this amp to the black tolex covered amp. The tone is more of a dry tone that takes pedals very well and has a great switchable effects loop. 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.

What I like about this amp is that the EL84 tubes makes this amp fit better with the voicing of the amp. The 6L6's or El34's don't match as well with the way this amp feels and is voiced towards. 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.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in right at around $1099, which is a great price a very good quality build and sounding combo amplifier. There is no up charge or don charge for this color of tolex. It is the same price as the other version. 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.

alcooloic's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Hughes & Kettner Statesman Quad EL84
- A lamp 40W
- 2 channels but with a twang and a Boost in the saturated it seems to have 4 ...
- An external speaker output, Loop, Footswitch, SETTING THE differentiates the reverb per channel ...
- Rglage easy, with an impressive sound spectrum.

UTILIZATION

Trs easy to use the sound that one seeks is really easy to find.
For those on a jou dj amp, well the grip is a joke.
The manual is useless, dailleurs above it or anything ...

SOUNDS

C particulirement amp sounds good for rock and hard rock of the 60 to 90 of beginners, however, with current pedals I think the attempt would be successful. Indeed what is top that is as severe acute in the spectrum is impressive.
I play on a lag roxane 99 and I have redcouverte.
The amp go well the nuances of the game, attacks, and the sound of each string. Harmonics are very easy to ring. BMOL small, it takes at least a third of its push for power that he is sending. Too bad for the neighbors, but living lamps ...
Washburn on my team of tone zone, do not worry the sound is Schreder port.
I don 'use that trs bit clean channel so I don' t have too many opinions on it, all I can say that is that he snaps if desired.

OVERALL OPINION

I have since 2 months and I 'proves a great pleasure that I ds the lights.
Before buying it I tried different amp: Engl Screamer, fender Hotroad, I also wished from the Marschal. However with my lag that is one that has done best for my style: ACDC, ledzep ...
As I don 'use no external effect I needed an amp capable of versatile.
In this price range I 'm not beat frankly I have t bluff.
In any case the essay if you want an amp in this price range, APRS any one test does not cost anything and you might be surprised.
