Hughes & Kettner Warp X
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. This guitar amp features two channels for dedicated for the cleans and one for the distortion channel.

This has great fluid distortion tone with the flick of the switch. The clean s are equally as amazing and sound very authentic.

SOUNDS

This amp has a fantastic clean channel. You get a nice sparkly clean that has a nice presence control knob that allows the shimmy to come through and not affect the distortion channel. This is the best feature in my opinion on this amp You get two presence control knobs which allows you to turn the clean one up so that you get more shimmer and sparkle and then have a totally separate presence control knob for the distortion channel. This allows you to have you highs to have more under your control for each channel.

The gain channel is supreme mega ultra gain. With the flick of the lube switch you get the tone to smooth out more and be better for lead playing. This allows you to play more fluidly with lead lines. One cool feature that I have never seen on an amp.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in right at around $1999. Not a bad price out all for a very controllable amp that has two equally great channels. I would recommend this to the drop tuning players who need multiple channels or someone who likes the voicing of this amp or just the nu-metal type voicing. Greta priced amp for what yo get.

Hughes & Kettner Warp X
Any lamp head 120 watts (4x EL34 power and 4x ECC83 in pramplification)
2 channels (1 clean and 1 Warp)
An effects loop
1 EQ per channel
unfortunately no rverb

UTILIZATION

Since we have two channels, the use is very simple. The manual is more clear trs. In short, the perfect freelance how to operate the bte ds Premire the minutes of use.

Otherwise, there is no rverb. It's a shame, but at the same time, when you make the choice to buy a relatively high-end amp and without concessions, it is expected to have the hardware that is made for pro use. And all the pros utlisent rverbs external.

on the other hand, trs intrscente thing regarding the effects loop.
- One can put in or parallle SERIES. So if you want to put in a compressor, gate, an EQ graphic ... we will SERIES, just as we connect this type of insert effects in a console. And if you want to put a rverb, chorus, flanger, ... it is parallle will, as with the Aux Sends a console in order to assay the FFECT and shuffled to the direct sound of the amp. In addition, this loop runs -10 dBV or +4 dBu, allowing to adapt all the effects, professional or general public. A good trs, trs useful to fawn on her.
- Two, one can choose which (s) channel (to) the loop will be active (if you want the effects of clean sounds for example). And again, it saw the trs.

So, in effect, this head is very well thought.

SOUNDS

Clean: clean trs, trs round, trs hot. The only minor complaint will be a shortage of lightweight Tone quickly corrected by boosting the prsence or treble. But overall trs good, with lots of body.

Warp: HUGE. Trs his ample-bodied. In addition, the sound is extremely hot. Metal rings in a spirit US when the gain is pushed back. In addition, this channel is not fate that make Satus standards. Trs to have one little super crunch sound as well.
The sound is super hot and super pais, and even pushed hard, it does not become aggressive. The sustain is close to the infinite and the sound is super wild. The sound is so powerful roar.
There are two functions on this channel:
- Lube that boosts the floor of between, which has the effect of having a little more gain and especially more compression. Ideal for the solo for more sustain and make the game even easier by leveling attacks mdiators. on the other hand disengage during rhythmic as it crushes the lgrement sounds, so we have a little less rhythmic percuttantes.
- Sub, which boosts infra serious. The sound is standard, against your bassist pulls geule because his bass is found commpltement drowned by the sound of Warp X.

Otherwise, I agree with the opinion of its not down for the super dig but not from the Amli. The EQ works well but trs within normal limits for an amp. Pantera Rammstein sound or just the fact that guitarists utlisent graphic EQ. The EQ Warp wireless network.

Last day from 30/04

I have the HP virtual home of my Marshall cabinet (Celestion G12L) and I replaced with new Celestion Century Vintage (killings, in its hyper pchu, Defines, which curve of rponse frquence will marvel at the big distorted sounds). I finally put HP in a quality adquate with Warp X, and I redcouvert my amp. P.. In, what's HUGE! The distortion is really great grazed, supe hot (all the harmonics are really in tune, giving a saturation hyper music, even if it is super aggressive). Really Satus style Mesa / Boogie, with more tonal and more cheaply. It's really more than a standard JCM2000, much hotter than a big style ENGL Fireball. Printing will sound even further as it is physical, we feel the sound through her body. For me, the only amp to compete with the Warp X in the CATEGORY Metal are VHT Pitbull and Framus, but they are much more expensive. The Warp X is a killer in his hyper modern and super hot. I highly recommend it.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 months. It is the nickel level. Hotter and more powerful in sound than Engl.
I love it, it's really good trs. Potato hell, its fat ... and in addition it is the best amp I've ever seen. Hughes & Kettner has really high level look. The faade plexi that dvoile lamps that heat, the Warp logo that lights up the ds light the bte ... It is a pleasure to watch, ds that we just turn it on and we expect that the heat lamp. In short, gnial.

The settings are easy to obtain, there only to turn the knobs, and off you go!

Apart from the technical details, we have a beautiful head! Just the amp on, you are captivated by the red LED lights that illuminate the facade but also with his Plexiglass wall! so beautiful! Nice finish, comes with a black cover on the outside, red inside!
I put 9 because no channel dedicated to independent crunch.

UTILIZATION

Setup is simple with simple! A clean channel (presence, treble, mid, bass, volume) and a channel WARP (master, presence, treble, mid, bass, gain).
It is not possible to get a bad sound with this head! Can be set as you want it will always find something endearing ptit! Just turn the knobs. The EQ is very effective for both the clean and for the WARP! The manual is in several languages, very clear.

SOUNDS

After several months of use, I can finally give an objective opinion on this head.
The clean: Pretty amazing to have such a good clean on the head of this style! The presence knob allows a range of sounds impressive slam, crystalline, warm, round, anything is possible! The EQ is super efficient. Clean and remains clean at high volume. Probably through the preamp used, selected ADP.
The Warp: Contrary to what one might think that the channel is not disgusting drooling, not accurate. Think again! The crunch is part of its sound capabilities, and does it well! The light bluesy crunch to creamy overdrive fatter and teeth to the AC / DC, anything goes! Again, the presence knob makes the difference and providing a real diference following the trimmings! Push the gain to 2 / 3, boost your bass a little, then you enter into the sphere WARP! Reserve incredible bass and gain. All this while keeping the attractive grain of H & K. It's boiling hot, it encourages really turn up the volume! The sound is thick, very present in the lower midrange (serious)! And the more you drop your guitar, plus show off the amp! With 2.5 tons below is unrecognizable! The palm mute are breathtaking it really encourages debauchery. I rarely use the button "lube", which has the effect of increasing the gain, I find it a little bavouille. on the other hand with the "sub" you'll get your account! A word ...

OVERALL OPINION

That's the conclusion:
Surely one of the best-in-class clean
WARP multi-channel are great because the crunch and "WARP" breathtaking.
Conception really great: devastating look with red lighting!
-Comes with a beautiful cover and a footswitch!
-The best quality / price ratio while current 120W lamp.

Only criticism that can be done (must find one), no dedicated channel to the crunch.
Will explain why the price is € 749 argus!

Hughes & Kettner Warp X
Already said

UTILIZATION

The settings are pretty simple you plug his guitar hack it 5 mins and found a sound that pleases us without too much problem, although we still have to turn the knobs feel a difference in sound (or is not the end of a quarter turn nomplus ..)

SOUNDS

I used this amp with an ibanez gio mounted DiMarzio tonezone a LTD EC-1000 with EMG-81, and an increase in ESP horizon SH13 Seymour Duncan.

sound level + the first
warp channel is quite méchand grain distortion is simpa AC sends a lot of not very heavy riffs to solos are no worries.

level clean, good bah is workable but it is on the strongest of the amplifier remains in the channel warp. Its workable so we regret that even slight pop when a pity a little reverb was also simpa it costs nothing

them - are the clean channel was pretty when AC Delesse conseption it would have been better then this amp distortion level of presence is sorely lacking. The sound is really simpa but repeats or concert ... this head has to be peinne enttendre despite its 120 watts

OVERALL OPINION

The price / quality ratio is not
the clean sound is disappointing
the popping sound lacks presence despite being pretty good
I used 3 years before pdt barter in ENGL powerball cons (head amp in the same price range as the warp and which surpasses by far)

I do not ferrai surment the same choice.
