Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit 200 - 4-Channel, Digital Powered, Analog Amplifier Head, with all-new Valve Emulation Technology

From day one of their existence (more than 34 years ago) Hughes & Kettner has been all about developing the technology of tone to meet the needs of the modern guitarist. That special tradition continues to this day, and has culminated in the creation of the world's first "Bionic" amplifier: the Black Spirit 200!

An Amp Like No Other!

The All-New Black Spirit 200 from Hughes & Kettner boasts an exhilirating range of sounds and features, combined with immense power, and yet manages to weigh in at an incredibly 8lbs.This highly-versatile amp is perfect for anywhere from your bedroom, to the world's biggest stages!

In bringing together the experience and feel of a high-quality tube amp circuit, with the flexibility of a modern-day modeling amp, the Black Spirit 200 is truly groundbreaking, and like nothing that's come before.

Highly Versatile

This amp comes complete with pretty much ANY guitar tone that you could ever want pre-programmed in, and sounds ranging from pristine cleans, to classic rock crunch, through to face melting leads and all out metal mayhem. As if that wasn't enough, each and every feature is easily accessible and can be dialed in without a second thought.

Variable Power Output

With power settings ranging from 0 to 200 Watts, the Black Spirit 200 can help you rock-out whether you're practicing songs in your bedroom, or performing on the largest of stages.

Versatile Connectivity

Not content with being a fantastic amplifier head, the Black Spirit 200 can be plugged into pretty much any speaker! Whether you want to use a standard guitar cab, an active/passive PA speaker, or even your Hi-Fi, the Black Spirit 200's plug & play capabilities will allow you to!

Bionic Tone Generator

Developed by Hughes & Kettner over several years, through the exploration of that classic Tube Amp tonal magic, The Spirit Tone Generator is really something else. This circuit faithfully recreates the natural, yet wildly complex interactions of a traditional tube-amp circuit on a digitally controlled, yet strictly analog working platform.

Essentially the Spirit Tone Generator recreates the rich and responsive tonal behaviour of an all-tube amplifier, and is made to inspire you to perform at your very best!

New to 2018
