Black Spirit 200 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.
All parameters apart from the Master Volume can be stored in up to 128 presets and recalled any time you want! Black Spirit 200 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 (sold separately), where every one of your presets is the tap of a toe away!
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 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 4â€”12 stacks to compact 1â€”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!
Black Spirit 200 can drive any kind, size and number of cabinets with a total impedance of 8 to 16 ohms. With 200 watts of output power, Black Spirit 200 is one of the loudest guitar amps ever.
You’ll probably never need this kind of volume, but you’ll always love the dynamic headroom. And Black Spirit 200 is the world’s first guitar amp that lets you also play directly into a passive PA cabinet or monitor wedge without losing the sweet character of a high-class guitar cabinet. 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.
