    It's not much, but it's mine! I have a Hughes & Kettner Basskick 707 head with a Hughes & Kettner BR115 cab. I'll post pix when I can. Anyone with any experience with Hughes & Kettner? This is my first.

    It has a cool feature called a "Sound Matrix" that gives you about 4 different tones. Very nice.

    I've played through a Hughes and Kettner 1x15 combo on many occasions. It was a very nice amp, I really liked the Matrix control. Very loud for a 1x15 combo! This was probably due to its tiltback design. All in all, I liked my Hughes and Kettner experience. I think they are known more for their guitar amps than bass amps, but both are quite nice.

    Yes and no. I didn't trade for it. I went ahead and bought it.

    Did you get it from Galaxy Music? I saw that they had an H&K in there last weekend. I almost bought it just to buy it, but then my girlfriend would have killed me just to kill me... :meh: :D

    This thing is really nice! I just finished playing along to "My Forbiddened Lover" by Chic with my MIJ '75 RI, and this setup sounds really nice! I think I'm going to go back and get the H&K 4x10 cab! The "sound matrix" feature is a good thing to have. Setting #2 gives you a great Larry Graham type slap tone!
