Hughes & Kettner has announced on September 6th a new guitar amplifier Black Spirit 200. Blessed with incredible practicality and an exhilarating range of sounds and features, immense power, and weighing in at just 8 lbs. (that’s 3.6 kg!), Black Spirit 200 is truly like no amp before.
Black Spirit 200 is the first guitar amplifier to feature Hughes & Kettner’s new ‘bionic’ Spirit technology. Made in Germany and housed on a sealed PCB, the Spirit Tone Generator faithfully recreates the vivid interactions of traditional tube amp circuits in a strictly analog way, delivering world class tone and responsiveness.
Black Spirit 200 enables to capture amazing tones without mics
The amp features four channels – Clean, Crunch, Lead, and Ultra. The channels cover all the iconic guitar sounds of the last 60 years. Furthermore they cover a comprehensive range of built-in reverb, delay and modulation effects. Black Spirit 200 is also the world’s first analog amp to feature a power amp sagging control. This feature lets you adjust the amount of power amp sag regardless of the volume level.
You can use the amp with any kind of speaker. You can use standard guitar cabinets, active and passive PA speakers, studio monitors and even hi-fi systems. Also the new generation Red Box DI out now offers eight ultra-realistic cabinet simulations. This makes it the perfect mic-free solution for stage and studio.
All parameters apart from the Master Volume can be stored in up to 128 presets and recalled any time you want. Black Spirit 200 is the perfect solution on stage and for your sound library in the studio or at home. Recalling all your favorite Black Spirit 200 tones couldn’t be simpler. Just use the optional Hughes & Kettner FSM-432 MK III MIDI board, where every one of your presets is the tap of a toe away.
The new guitar amplifier features 200 watts of output power
Black Spirit 200 can drive any kind, size and number of cabinets with a total impedance of 8 to 16 ohms. With 200 watts of output power, Black Spirit 200 is one of the loudest guitar amps ever. The amp can also be reduced to 20, 2, or even 0 zero watts for silent recording and bedroom practice. And with a headphone out and an Aux in – or using Bluetooth – you can jam along to your favorite tunes any time inspiration strikes.
