Hughes & Kettner Triamp MK II Demo.

Initially I could have cared less what the thing actually sounded like because it is seriously the coolest looking head on the planet!! But I never really gave it a fair shake because I picked up a 6505+ about the same time and was using that live. I found that for heavier playing this head did much better with a drive pedal in the front. In this case a TS-9 as well as an ISP Decimator. Without it, the head breaks up well at higher gain but the sound tends to squish rather than tighten up. For some that may be the sound you’re looking for, I however prefer the high and tight sound. Higher gain but super fast response no lag or squish which adding the Ibanez TS-9 does.

If blues or mid gain sounds are your thing, this would be a killer head. Very warm and appealing sound and a tone of character. This really is a great head for whatever application if you take the time to figure it out.
