The new Hughes & Kettner GrandMeister Deluxe 40 uses Deluxe Tone Technology which pairs groundbreaking new circuit design advances with renowned tone-shaping capabilities, all inspired by our flagship TriAmp Mark 3. H&K says “From sparkling vintage clean to throaty crunch, a beefy brown sound and crushing levels of all-out gain, sonic freedom the touch of a button away with GrandMeister Deluxe 40!”
Use the optional FSM-432 MK III MIDI board, which lets you store up to 128 presets and recall them with the tap of a toe. All of the amp’s parameters are saved, including gain, EQ, and all effects settings, giving you a practically inexhaustible library of different sounds. Pot values are saved via our ingenious Smart Rotary Control technology – which also lets us keep the GM40’s panel clean and easy to use, with only 9 pots instead of 14 per channel!
It includes Red Box AE, the latest version of H&K’s award-winning DI box with speaker emulation, which features DSP-driven Ambience Emulation to authentically mimic the room-filling sound of a 4×12 cab and the amp’s power section by tapping the signal between the power amp and the Power Soak.
There’s also a free GM40 REMOTE App for iPad which lets you watch, touch and control all your amp’s features on one handy screen, and you can also back up, store and share all your favorite sounds.
