The Warp T Head
Sporting four 6L6 tubes, the head pumps into the cabinet a
heavy helping of oomph, giving you punch unmatched in this class.
You’ll revel in your newfound ability to cut through the din.
Courtesy of mighty 120 watts blasting out of four 12”
speakers, your New Metal riffs are sure to come across loud and
proud. But even an opus played at warp speed soon becomes boring
without a little tension and release to spice things up. The WARP
T ™ also delivers the kind of crisp, crystal-clear clean tone
you need to heighten the musical drama and go from overtures of
glassy, glossy arpeggios to infernal finales of paint-peeling fury.
The Warp Cabinet
Somewhat larger and more stable than your ordinary 4x12” cab, this
baby is built to deliver scooped mids and bowel-shaking low end.
Featuring a special speaker combination of two Celestion Vintage
30s on top for crystal-clear sound and two Celestion Hot 100's
on the bottom for pure bass bliss, this cab delivers archetypal Nu
Metal tone. Shimmering with crisp top end and shaking with fat
bottom end, this sound is unmatched by any other.
Even the hardest rocking axe slingers will want to give their
head-banging audiences a break now and then. That’s what the
CLEAN channel is here for – to deliver sweet clean sound for
those softer passages that make the next monstrous riff seem even
more elephantine. The WARP T™ offers a unique brand of ultra
clean sound that remains crisp, clear and sparkly at even very high
volumes. This ensures your sound cuts through and ends up where it
belongs – in your audience’s ears.

Located on the far right, this
jack accepts your guitar cord’s 6.3 mm (1/4") plug.
Dive right into the wonderful world of high gain distortion and
luxuriate in the jaw-droppingly powerful sound of every riff that
rips through speakers. Courtesy of the tube circuitry, this sound
leaps right out of the cabinet and goes straight for the throat. The
WARP channel delivers it all, from a nasty Nu Metal thump to
post-grunge growl, from alternative snarl to the doomsday thunder so
cherished by devotees of death and Goth Metal. By varying the
WARP channel’s preamp gain and the power amp via the MASTER
VOLUME knob, you can dial in anything from venomous to
spine-chilling scream – and all points in between.
Controls the level of the WARP channel. Use it to dial in the
desired balance between the CLEAN and WARP channels,
that is, to determine which side of the WARP T™’s split
personality will dominate - Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde.

Of all the WARP T™’s many features, the GAIN knob is
the one that will shape the heart of your tone. Evoking anything
from gritty crunch to ferocious fuzz, the GAIN knob lends
your riffs and power chords precisely the edge that you want them to
have. Twist it to go from merely dirty but tremendously punchy tone
at lower settings to a merciless evil roar at higher settings.

As the name would indicate, this knob puts the power of 120
tube-driven between your thumb and forefinger. Use it wisely
because it can induce everything from bliss to pain to near madness
your band mates. Though twisting this knob can be as much fun as the
law allows, don’t unleash all this power rashly. Exercise restraint
and protect your and your fellow musicians’ hearing.
This button serves to program the retrofit Hughes & Kettner®

impedances of 4, 8, 2 x 16 and 16 ohms to the corresponding speaker

giving you the biggest, boldest bottom end and a veritable eruption
of heavy duty tone.
