Description

THE SECRET BEHIND THE WALL-OF-SOUND PLAYING EXPERIENCE!


To give you that genuine wall-of-sound feel and sound, we paired a unique Thiele/Small cabinet enclosure with a UK-made Celestion Creamback speaker.

What is Thiele/Small, we hear you ask? Well, it’s a common term these days, and it’s all about achieving the biggest possible sound out of a smaller sized, ported/vented speaker enclosure. Thiele/Small is named after A. Neville Thiele of the Australian Broadcasting Commission, and Richard H. Small of the University of Sydney, Australia.

These two audio pioneers developed a way to calculate how large a speaker cabinet would need to be – and how wide and long the vented port should be – in order to achieve maximum low frequency performance.

The Thiele/Small development approach leads to well-balanced dimensions that dampen the speakers’ movement, while at the same time allowing it to breathe. Only in this way can the speaker unleash its full sonic potential and deliver more output than in any other housing – as you’re about to find out!

 

 

SPIRIT: THE BIONIC TONE GENERATOR


Over the years, we’ve been exploring the origin of the tonal magic of tube amplifiers more and more deeply. And what became obvious is this: it’s about way more than just the tube. The true tonal magic emerges from all the ‘weird’ dynamic interactions between the single circuit sections and the amp stages, the transformers and the speakers.

Together, these highly complex and dynamic physical phenomena create that rich, organic and tactile sound experience guitar players are looking for.

The Spirit Tone Generator technology faithfully recreates the natural yet wildly complex interactions of traditional tube amp circuits on a digitally controlled but strictly analog working platform. This miniature masterwork houses the essence of the physics behind tube amplifiers, with all of the intensity – hereby creating the rich and responsive tonal behavior that gives you an unbridled joy of playing. Put simply, Spirit is made to inspire guitarists to perform at their best.

 

 

 

 

INNOVATIVE POWER AMP SAGGING CONTROL

 

Much of the fascinating tone of the great clean, crunch and lead guitar sounds is down to a drop in power supply voltage when spiking transient signals hit the output stage hard. Now, for the first time in an analog amp, Black Spirit 200 lets you adjust the amount of power amp sag and dial in creaminess and growl regardless of the volume level.

 

 

 

CHANNELS AND FX


Black Spirit 200 combo features four channels that take you on a trip through all the trademark tones of the last 60 years. And like four external stomp boosts, the channel-tailored boost will give you an even more assertive, creamier, or punchier tone! Four inspirational, strictly analog channels plus a complete range of built-in digital reverb, delay and modulation effects make it a perfect all-in-one solution, while a sophisticated FX Loop lets you connect external FX units. And it’s all accessible directly and with the trusted handling you expect from a real guitar amplifier.

 

 

SAVE YOUR FAVORITE TONES WITH THE PUSH OF A BUTTON


All parameters apart from the Master Volume can be stored in up to 128 presets and recalled any time you want! Black Spirit 200 combo 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!

 

 

 

 

 
 

CAPTURE AMAZING TONES WITHOUT MICS


Hughes & Kettner’s award-winning Red Box has been the music industry’s go-to device for recording guitars without microphones for decades. Black Spirit 200 combo features the most highly evolved Red Box ever: Red Box AE+. It’s the simplest, easiest and flat-out the best sounding way of sending your tone to a mixer, a PA or a recording device. But what truly sets Red Box AE+ apart is its versatility: choose from eight different cabinet types

– from monstrous 4×12 stacks to compact 1×12 cabs, and anything in-between – to truly personalize your tone. This option is not only more convenient than miking up a cab. In most cases, it sounds a whole lot better!

 

 

 

 

SUPERIOR CONNECTIVITY

 

 

Your personal connection to Black Spirit 200 is matched only in its totality by the amp’s connectivity to the musical world outside! Here’s how to get your Black Spirit 200 heard:

But what truly sets Red Box AE+ apart is its versatility: choose from eight different cabinet types – from monstrous 4×12 stacks to compact

1×12 cabs, and anything in-between – to truly personalize your tone. You can switch the output level from Mic to Line, so whatever you want to connect your amp to, the level will match.

Together with the Black Spirit 200 head the Black Spirit 200 combo also features a truly new kind of speaker output. With the cabinet type switch you decide if you want to play through a guitar speaker or a Full Range Flat Response (FRFR) cab. The Output Power switch limits the wattage according to the location or the power capacity of the cab you’re using.

The Black Spirit 200 Combo offers an additional connection for a second guitar box compared to the head.

And it’s the perfect amp for world tours: Black Spirit 200 runs on every voltage between 100 and 240 volts without affecting the output power or sound consistency!
