Here we have the legendary Hughes & Kettner Switchblade 100w TSC Programmable Guitar Tube Amp with 2x12'' fabulous Eminence Rockdriver 60 Speakers that give you Mesa Boogie, Marshall and Fender Sounds!
Literally only taken out of the box once to test as it is my backup amp. My everyday one has never given up on me so I've never needed to use this one. It remains in immaculate like new condition.
Comes with coasters, power lead, a set of four NEW Marshall Gold (top of the range, rare) EL34 power amps and 2 x 12AX7 Marshall preamp tubes which cost £100 (if you are after the British sound). There are a couple of additional JJ 6L6 power amp tubes and also a spare 12AX7 preamp tube so you'll have one there if you need to replace the tube at any time.
Equipped with TSC, a built-in tube technician. It automatically biases the amp to extend tube life, shuts down defective tubes to get you through the gig, and indicates ratings to make tube selection an exercise in convenience. TSC even lets you operate EL34 and 6L6GC tubes simultaneously.
This is not digital modelling amp, it is a 100% analogue all valve preamp and power amp which will enable you to produce warm and dynamic sounds with great versatility- in fact, it is considered one of the top most versatile amps and many review summarise it as one of the top 10 all round best tube amps used by the legendary Allan Holdsworth and many other top professional players.
Please note that this is the TSC (Tube Safety Control) 6L6 model (very rare). All the tubes have been replaced with 12AX7 JJ's and all new 6L6 JJ's.
