Lot of good sound in small package
busy_b, 13.02.2020
I recently invested in home studio equipment and repeatedly sought after good guitar recording solution. Although amp sims are very good nowadays, the sound you get from real valve amp is different and is more straightforward to get. But you can't play 100 W at your living room without being insulted by your neighbours. So the Power Soak technology looks like blessing for this purpose. I hesitated between Engl and HK, then between HK 20 or HK 40, and the number of valves (3x pre-amp, 4x power) was the decisive factor. Using HK Tubemeister Deluxe 40 as valve pre-amp for recording and then processing the sound in amp/cabinet simulators in DAW is a good method to get advantages of both worlds, I think.
Although I've bought HK DL 40 for silent recording, I've better bought Tubemeister 110 Box as well. I feel more secure when the amp's connected to appropriate box, not to damage anything by accidental switching other output buttons. With box connected it is perfect duo, you can practice at very low sound level with feel of full power at the same time (and without ears crushed by earphones). Moreover it takes almost no place - box+amp altogether measure 55x45x25 cm.
One thing though. I had no time to test it thoroughly in 30 days period after buy, so when I found out later, that something is not right, it was too late to easy exchange. Amp repeatedly after 7-8 minutes from cold start stopped responding to any button and switched itself to 40 W Clean. With help from Thomann staff it was collected, repaired (backboard replaced) and back at my place in 2 weeks (and I'm not living in Germany). Very good organisation indeed!

Great amp for a Myriad of uses
Diogo Silva, 13.04.2019
Was looking for my first tube amp when I found this Hughes&Kettner Tubemeister Deluxe 40. I now play only at home but wanted an amp that could adapt to a series of different uses. I first found the tubemeister 36 and fell in love with the amount of features but it didn't captivate me where it matters the most, the sound (mostly the distorted sound, as I am mostly a metal guy). So i then looked at the tubemeister Deluxe 40, which shares almost all the features of the tubemeister 36 (and some more) but has the gain strutucture based on the triamp and having played it now I have to say it sounds GREAT!!!! The amp has 3 channels, clean (with independent eq), crunch and Lead (with shared eq). Cleanwise I like it super clean (jazz like) but it can get a little bit of bite. Crunch is where I keep it most of the time, has plenty of gain and mostly use Lead for (you guessed it) leads! Regarding the other features, the built in attenuator works great (and the amp doesn't get all that hot) the redbox is awesome, allowing for silent recording and has great speaker simulation (which in a live setting you might use to go direct into the PA) and perhaps the most amazing feature of the amp is the MIDI learn fucntion. With a MIDI pedalboard you can control everything in the amp but the EQ values, you can assign to a slot in the pedalboard the chanel, the attenuator level and the fx loop (on/off). This makes the amp super versatile (if you're considering this amps, BUY A MIDI PEDALBOARD, it takes the amp to another level).
The only reason I gave it 4 stars in handling is the passive eq which takes a little bit to get used to (and still am getting used to)
