Spirit: The Bionic Tone Generator

It's about much more than just tubes Hughes & Kettner spent a long time exploring the ‘origin of tonal magic’ of tube amps, delving to great depths to discover what it is that draws the fanatics towards tubes. What was discovered was this, it’s about much more than the tube alone. The real magic lies in all the dynamic interactions between circuits, amp stages, transformers and guitar cabinets. Factoring all of this in, it becomes a very complex and dynamic phenomena which in itself creates a super rich, organic sound, which guitarists find themselves on an almost never ending quest to find…

Hughes & Kettner’s patented Spirit Tone Generator tech works on recreating the organic, yet complex interactions of tube amplifier circuits, via a digitally controlled, but completely analogue base. The Spirit Tone Generator has the physics of tube amplifier workings nailed down, with all the reliability of a transistor amp. All the behaviours you would expect to find on a tube amp, it’s behaviours and responses, which encouraging playing without boundaries. In short, the BlackSpirit 200 is here to bring out the best in your playing.


Bring out the best in the amp, without bringing down the house A large part of great guitar tone, be it a glistening clean sound, gritty crunch and those white-hot leads is due to a drop in power supply voltage when transient signals spike and hit the amplifiers output stage with a large degree of force. For the first time in history, Hughes & Kettner added a ‘sagging’ knob on the front of the amp, to allow us to control the power amp’s sag and let’s us add in crunch and warmth, without having to crank the amp up to neighbour disturbing levels.
