Hughes & Kettner is happy to introduce the all-new – Coreblade, the next evolutionary stage of programmable all-tube guitar amplifier–is “specially designed to meet the demands of modern metal guitarists”.
The head delivers earth-shattering 100-watts of tube power that combines brutal tone, untamed dynamics and explosive punch with amazing flexibility unequaled by any other tube amp so far.
Coreblade is equipped with four channels, two of them voiced to offer completely different high-gain alternatives. Beyond that, the amp sports a versatile drive channel and a clean channel with plenty of headroom. For sound refinement it features three first-class effect modules, covering a wide range of standards from authentic spring reverb to chorus and delay. As all effects are added using our unique “Inversed Parallel Modulation”, the guitar signal always stays in the analog domain.
Coreblade is the first amp to take advantage of the newly developed IDB (Intelligent Dual Breakpoint) noise gate. This device simultaneously measures the gain at the input jack and after the preamp, thus being able to react perfectly in any given situation, be it as a radical tool for sound design on stage or as a delicate noise suppressor in the studio.

The AXE fx does not sound real. You will never be able to duplicate what a tube amp sounds and feels like using digital. It’s physically impossible.
this is an all-tube amp you tool…
I have this TUBE AMP. It is an excellent amp. The guy who said the AXE fx doesn’t sound real doesn’t have a Coreblade! I run mine through a MArshall JCM900 cab and it is AWESOME!!!
I added a video of the Coreblade for those interested.
