NAMM 2005: Hughes & Kettner Enter the Matrix

Matrix amplfierNAMM 2005: Hughes & Kettner has released a new line of amplifiers that that combines the best of the analog and digital worlds.

Sporting four channels and a comprehensive digital effects section, and packing a mighty 100-watt punch, the amp is available in Combo and Head versions. But the Matrix series’ show-stopping feature is the unique Autostore FX matrix enabling separate effects programming for each channel.

Alongside reverb and delay, the onboard digital multi-effects processor offers chorus, flanger and tremolo patches.
