This all-tube amplifier is the successor to our all-time bestseller, the HG 100/2 amp, originally introduced in 1996. It inherits all of the features which made its older sibling so successful and brings some new, important enhancements to the table.

With its brilliant, shimmering CLEAN and a fully saturated, American modern hi-gain OVERDRIVE channels, this amp is still considered by many to be an ideal blend of sound and features. Add to this a strong 100W tube power stage, simple operation, its modern look and its predecessor’s reputation and you’ll begin to understand why this amp has been so sought after right from its introduction in 2006.
