Hughes & Kettner Triamp MKII head, with footswitch. In excellent condition. This amp is heavy, so shipping TBD based on location. I can do a local in person deal in Vancouver or anywhere in the Lower Mainland.

This was H&K's flagship amp (until the MKIII was released with a few more features), and is used by Alex Lifeson, Nuno Bettencort, Tony McAlpine and others.

This amp can do it all, from country to bone crushing metal. 3 channels, footswitch, great effects loop, and a wide array of great sounds. Switchable between 100 and 50 watts.

Cash is king, but partial trades + cash considered for other heads, small combos, pedals, guitars.

Here’s a good overview and review of the amp:

Our Verdict​

If you're after a world class head that can hold up against the best that America and the UK can offer, this it. Tons of tone from a well thought-out design. Good looks and enough power for any stage or studio in the world.


Tight, punchy output is produced by 4 - EL34s that feed 3 dual-channel modes. Amp 1 gives you vintage California clean, Amp 2 cranks out classic rock tones, and Amp 3 delivers tons of high gain and overtones. They're all switchable with the included stageboard. With 100W output and a switchable parallel/serial effects loop that's MIDI controllable, this is a totally pro tone machine that'll give you an incredible range of tone for live and studio dates.
