The Spirit of Legendary Tone


Don’t be fooled by the miniature format. The Spirit Nano belies its diminutive dimensions with the impressive power of full-fledged power amp rated for up to 50 watts. That’s enough to rock even a 4×12″ cab.

Developed specifically for the Spirit line, the Ultra Response power amp behaves exactly like its tube-based cousins. It always sounds great at every volume and never grates at level, even at full tilt. Waste not, want not: This little beastie sends every single watt to the speaker.

All those delicious dynamics remain intact and every watt is translated into impressive sound pressure. These petit powerhouses pack a punch as mighty as any tube power amp with a similar output.

At the heart of the Spirit Nano amps is the Spirit Tone Generator, a novel bionic design developed by Hughes & Kettner to replicate the analog processes of a tube circuit. This miniature masterpiece distills the essence of tube amps’ magical physics and incomparable tone into a compact, strictly analog circuit that promises unbridled playing pleasure.

The Spirit Tone Generator is made in Germany to our uncompromising standards and sealed in a protective housing. We’re talking about a soulful circuit imbued with the spirit of great amp sounds here, so we simply had to call this tech 'Spirit'.
