Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister 36 Head

Everything you would expect from a Meister, plus everything you wouldn't...

Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister 36 Head


The Fulfillment:

Full analog tube tone and tube power
Full on board multi-FX control
Full programmability of the whole amp
Full remote control and in realtime
Full remote display by iPad

Condensed Hughesability:

8 tone controls and 6 effects controls for each of the 4 channels could result in an unusable user interface with a total of 52 controls. With Smart Rotary Controls, there is no need to have 4x gain or 4 sets of EQs. You need every control only once! And we even reduced the number of controls from 14 to 9: by simply pressing FX ACCESS, the tone controls work as effects controls. This keeps the user interface clear and focussed on your tone.

The rear panel of the GrandMeister offers all the useful features that makes the Meister format so successful. Thanks to the built-in power soak, a Meister can go from a roar to a whisper, shaking the boards on stage, tingling spines in your own four walls, and raising goose-bumps in the studio, even during silent recording at night. And the built-in RED BOX always feeds true power amp tone straight to a stage or studio mixing console.

Whether you rock on stage, play at home or record at night, you will enjoy tube tone with like never before.

Smart Tube Control!

Imagine that you could store and recall 128 presets across 4 amazing tube channels, and include 3 onboard studio quality effects – simply at the touch of a button. Imagine that you could turn any of the tone and effects controls to any position – at any time – at an instant!

Imagine that you could watch and touch your tone with an iPad, and that you could even remote control your amp in realtime with the app or with your expression pedals. What feels instantly familiar, is also a radically new way to express yourself!

GrandMeister is an all analog tube amp as you know it. We added effects and simply replaced all the conventional potentiometers with Smart Rotary Controls to make analog tube tone programmable. It is really that simple!

Add expression pedals to the stage board and control volume, reverb or even gain and EQ settings in realtime.

Watch and touch tube tone from a whole new perspective.

A whole new perspective: Watch and touch your tube tone.


  • Assign names to your amp's preset numbers
  • Check settings of every single control on your amp
  • Easy access to more effects control options
  • Remote control your tone in realtime 



Free iPad® app. Works with any MIDI-Interface for iPad. 

The most advanced feature set.

The FSM 432 MK III midi board 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 in realtime. Not included.

Where such services are available all orders will benefit from auto enrolment in the services. Ultimately, if there is no-one to sign for your delivery, you will be left a card by our contract carrier inviting you to collect from the depot or re-arrange delivery.
