A steel fist in a velvet glove, the Hughes & Kettner TubeMeister 18 Twelve delivers all the tonal subtleties of a TubeMeister with a glorious punch that will rock your audience.

In an inspired moment, Mr. Hughes and Herr Kettner decided to pack all their knowledge and over a quarter of a century's passion for tube tone into a remarkably compact amp. This beautifully engineered instrument came to be called the TubeMeister. A dream of a tone-generating machine, it goes from clean to mean and from a roar to a whisper, shaking the planks on stage, tingling spines in the studio, and raising goose bumps in the still of night.

Serving up three different sounds at the touch of a footswitch, the Hughes & Kettner TubeMeister 18 Twelve is the go-to guitar amp for gigging. Its four-step power soak brings the sound of the big stage into small clubs and your own four walls. And courtesy of the built-in Red Box and silent recording capability, you can lay down pro-quality tracks at any time day or night.

The 12" RockDriver Classic 60 speaker was custom-designed specifically for the compact TubeMeister 18 Twelve housing. It is a steel fist in a velvet glove, delivering all the tonal subtleties of a TubeMeister with a punch that will rock your world.
