Used Hughes & Kettner GrandMeister 36 With FSM432 MKIII Switch
The GrandMeister 36 is an all-analog tube amp with four independent channels: Clean, Crunch, Lead, and Ultra. The 36 watts 4x EL84 power amp is based on the TubeMeister 36, but the 3x 12AX7 preamp is completely redesigned and offers the widest tonal spectrum H&K has ever included in an amp, from sparkling clean to highest gain. Independent gain, master, EQ settings and even presence and resonance control plus a switchable boost for each channel provide you with all the versatility a guitarist could wish for.
How? The GrandMeister’s Smart Rotary Controls allow each channel to have its own set of controls with only a minimum of pots since each control is fully remote controllable and programmable. That means you can create any sound you want, store it on 128 presets, and recall it via MIDI controller, interface or your iPad. Yes, the complimentary app for iPad enables you to check the setting of every single control, adjust them, assign names to the presets, and remote control the amp with your iPad — everything in real time.
Power: 36W tube 4 channels: Clean, Crunch, Lead, Ultra Digital spring reverb iPad connectivity Tubes: 3 x 12AX7 preamp; 4 x EL34 power amp Soft bag included Dimensions: 17.5” x 6.7” x 6” Weight: 17lb.
The MIDI board FSM 432 MK III does far more than simply select presets, like most MIDI controllers. The stomp-box mode also 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 H&K GrandMeister 36 in real time. Though the FSM 432 MK III is optimized for use with the GrandMeister, it can also be used with the superb Switchblade, CoreBlade and TubeMeister 36 amp offerings from H&K.
The most eye-catching alteration from the MK II is the new ergonomic shape of the die-cast case. To better work with the radius of your foot’s motion, the FSM-432 MK III is slightly bent, so distance between the now-staggered buttons has been extended to avoid accidental operating errors.
