Duotone Tommy Thayer Signature Edition
KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer found his amp of choice in the Hughes & Kettner Duotone. In fact, he was so enthused to chance upon an amp so good that he put his name on a Duotone Signature Series model. It now adorns the amps shining blue Plexiglas front panel, alongside his official KISS logo. Adding a stylish cosmetic touch, the amp and the matching Signature Edition cabinet (CC 412 A30 SE) are decked out in a highest-quality faux croc leather covering.
Duotone delivers to-die-for tone, but takes the one-sound-wonder of vintage amps a significant step further. When we set out to design this modern classic, we collaborated with an amp-tuning specialist to embrace the pros most frequently asked for modifications. The top four demands are more tone, more attack, a tube-driven effects loop and a clean channel that merits its name!
So we went on to build the first off-the-rack amp to offer all of these special tweaks as standard features: You get supercharged classic rock tones thick enough to slice with fat, dynamic overdrive, a top-drawer clean channel, a tubedriven effects loop, and even a dual master. Duotone all of the real sounds, none of the limitations!
Our company is powered by a passion for tone. We know that it takes a lot more than a fistful of valves and branded speakers to make great amps. You have to obsess about every detail. And its not just the design, the workmanship or the quality of components. The magic is in the right combination!
Our Custom Class amps are the fruit of our never-ending quest for perfect tone and performance. It is this pursuit of excellence that makes Hughes & Kettner Custom Class amps unique instruments for unique musicians, designed to satisfy even the most discriminating guitarists demands. Looking for the ultimate? Youve found it.
Our Custom Class is not about yesteryears designs that limit your playing flexibility. Nor are these amps about this months flavor. They are the perfect marriage of classic tones and modern flexibility. These treasure-troves of tone are built to go the distance in all respects. They are handcrafted in our German custom-shop, just like youd expect from products in this class. But despite boutique credentials such as hand-wired circuitry and superior grade hand-selected tubes, we engineer these amps using 21st-century manufacturing and cutting-edge testing methods. And that translates to dramatically diminished tolerances and variances for unprecedented reliability and consistent sound quality.
These amps look awesome. But under that stylish skin, they are tough as nails built to take a pounding and keep on sounding! Featuring heavy-duty stainless steel chassis, they are rugged, reliable and roadworthy pieces of performing art!
Whatever your favorite flavor The Shadows, Slade, Santana, Sting or Slipknot you can count on our Custom Class amps to give you the definitive sounds youve come to expect from Hughes & Kettner. Today and at every gig for many moons to come!
