I bought a Hughes and Kettner 100w Switchblade combo off ebay yesterday!!! I am so excited. This is my first tube amp, I was playing on a 15w Vox Pathfinder before. Seems really easy to use (I'm horrible with wires, switches, knobs, electricity, computers etc). I am so stoked for this. It sells brand new for $2099 in Canada. The one I'm getting is only a couple years old, in excellent condition, recently retubed by an H&K specialist and I got it for $900!! Any advice for a first time tube amp owner regarding the care and maintenance of a tube amp?
What do you guys think of the switchblade? Check out the guitarworld review:
