[NAMM][VIDEO] New TriAmp Mark 3 amp
Hughes & Kettner innovates every year and introduces at NAMM 2015 the third generation of its TriAmp all-valve guitar amplifier.
Let’s get to the heart of the new TriAmp Mark 3 right away, for this is a real game changer that Hughes & Kettner has developed.
The “smart” amp head offers no less than 6 independent channels which will provide the sound of 6 different eras thanks to a clever routing system to the three pairs of power tubes. You can also combine the two or three pairs to change the sound character and get a power of up to 145W.
These custom configurations can be stored as presets (128 in total) and easily recalled with a button via MIDI.
