One of three models, the single-channel Spirit of Metal covers the sonic spectrum from classic to modern metal. Tons of gain are at your fingertips - simply twist the knob to bring out the beast. This amp's astonishing power output belies its miniature format. Pumping out up to 50 watts at 4 ohms, it delivers plenty of juice to drive even a 4x12" cab. Alongside Gain, Tone and Master knobs, the Nano Head offers a unique Sagging control that dials in delectable power amp saturation. Wherever you go, it goes with you to serve up for your fav heavy metal sounds.

A newly designed circuit layout centered on the unique German-made Spirit Tone Generator delivers the most sought-after metal sounds of every era.

Really is fun through inexpensive headphones, and even more fun through a HK 12 inch box....not the best use of the box, but the amp is really a great deal of fun. This will certainly hold you until such time as you can afford a tube amp.

I ended up buying this on a whim for a 1x12 cabinet I was building. Such a great decision. This thing packs so much punch for being able to fit in my pocket! I use it to play in a rock cover band and it can get plenty loud for gigs. It also takes pedals beautifully. although it is missing an FX loop (which can be found on other small amp heads around this price), I find it still does a fantastic job running through my pedalboard. Pros: - Super loud! - Great bang for your buck - amazing vintage cleans and great distortion - Tone knob makes it more versatile without pedals - Emulates the sound of a tube amp pretty darn well - very portable and lightweight Cons: - No FX loop - Sagging knob and tone knob can be hard to dial in at first - No on-board reverb (I actually a prefer reverb pedal anyways so it might not be a problem for some) I plan on coming back for some more Hughes & Kettner products in the future when I decide to upgrade my setup.

I bought it to replace the heavy line 6 spider IV 75 I use for church. I had a few passive speakers in the garage so I thought this would work with em. It did, but for those of you who wishes to repurpose an old speaker that you already own:
Decouple the tweeter from woofer. Or else the gainy setting will sound bad. I used a switch so that I can go back and forth between hifi and guitar cab mode.

I only run this on the 12.5W setting through a 16ohm cab and I can still only turn the Master Volume to 2. I use this mostly at home for convenience and to save my tubes for shows, but this thing could easily serve as a backup. It is very customizable, the tone knob goes from chimey cleans to class A fuzz to Marshall Rock to Extreme scooped metal. The sagging knob allows for even more tweaking on the amp sound/saturation and compression. I have a Vox MD 50 AC lunchbox head and this one has way more sounds and is quite a bit punchier than the Vox, which is no slouch on its own. The only lacking parts potentially are an effects loop and/or a proper speaker cab for the line out (I use that feature a lot on my tubemeister and skip the speaker all together). Takes pedals up front better than the tubemeister! Highly recommended!

I came in to try out the Orange Micro heads. Tried them both, then the H & K nano Spirit of Rock and found out pretty quickly this is comparing boys to men. With the gain at 12 oclock I couldn't move the master volume much past 2. And this little thing sounds crazy good. You can get John Mayer sounds to Judas Priest and everything in between. I don't normally write reviews but felt I had to with this one because I was just blown away by the sounds this thing has to give. It completey embarrased my other lunchbox heads. I'm running a strat with a FS-1 in the bridge with 91 American Alnico pups for middle and neck + a Telly with Reilander pups through a Marshall 1960 slant 4x12 with G12T 75's and everything was sounding fantastic. The only thing I'm not stoked on is the looks but that goes away immediately once you plug in.

Yup, this little thing rips! So much fun! Tons of different ways to sculpt and play with the tone. I hooked it up to a 10' cab I had handy, and this this would easily shred it to bits haha. I might have had the volume at 1.5-2 and that was enough for that little cab. Im sure It will easily power a 4x12. Will be trying that next! With headphones on it sounds just as great and is so compact you can setup anywhere really. Id recommend giving it a shot!

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
