Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister

Hughes & Kettner has been Tony’s amp of choice for decades. They have very kindly donated their Grandmeister 36 amp head, and matching FSM 432 MK III phantom-powered MIDI board.

GrandMeister has everything there is to love about all-analog tube amps, and then some. Featuring onboard effects and Smart Rotary Controls in place of conventional potentiometers, it delivers real tube tone that you can program as you see fit. And with the GM36 remote iPad app, you can remote-control all settings in real time, backup your presents, share them with your friends and more.

The all new MIDI board FSM 432 MK III does not only serve to select presets. The stomp box mode allows you to switch channels directly, and to activate modulation effects, delay and boost independently.


 It also offers two 1/4“ jack inputs to connect expression pedals or single footswitches. Both inputs are freely assignable to remote control any pot and switch of the GrandMeister 36 in realtime.

This prize package will be raffled at the Benefit Concert for Tony MacAlpine on Saturday December 12 at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles.
