To date, Hughes & Kettner has been known in the USA chiefly as the maker of the Tube Tools and boutique-class amps the likes of TriAmp and zenTera. Across the Atlantic, the German manufacturer has been a large vendors of mid-class amps since the '80s.
"We developed the new line of Matrix amps especially for the American market," notes Paul Airey, Hughes & Kettner's International Sales Director. "Its sound quality, punch and features set new standards in this price class!"
The heart of the new Matrix series is the unique AUTOSTORE FX MATRIX; it affords players the luxury of dialing in individual effect settings for each of the four channels. And for added convenience, it stores these settings automatically -- no further action or tweaking required. Alongside reverb and delay, the onboard digital multi-effects processor offers chorus, flanger and tremolo patches.
Featuring four channels, the amp serves up a range of electric guitar sounds at the touch of a button, from clean to "rectified" Warp sounds, and from blues-approved crunch to '80s lead tone.
The new Matrix 100 is available in both Combo and Head versions. Both pack a 100-watt wallop, providing plenty of punch to cut through at band rehearsals and on stage. The 1x12" Combo and the 4x12" SC412 Cabinet are loaded exclusivelywith Celestion speakers.
