The Hughes & Kettner TriAmp MK1 is an amazingly versatile all-tube amplifier. It features three amps in one 100-watt head with two channels each, for a total of six unique amp sounds. I’ve played through Bogner, VHT and Soldano amps in the past and the TriAmp MK1 stacks up in every way (and, in my opinion, has more tonal versatility).
It also features an FX loop with a 10db buffer toggle, spring reverb (not available in the TriAmp MK2) and option to add midi module. It also has a Redbox DI built into the back of the amp, so you can run it directly out to the board live, or another output to blend in recording.
Amp 1: It’s like a classic clean Fender, you can push it a little and it breaks up beautifully for pristine, clean tones. Amp 2: This is your Marshall-like British tone setting with grit. Amp 3: This is your high gain, Bogner-like channel. It’s up there with some of the best high-gain amps ever built. Channel B is a beast.
