Stringed instruments and accessories
At Musikmesse 2003 Hughes & Kettner continued their successful Vortex formula of straightforward guitar amps with practical features, a competitive price and tone quality. Two new guitar combos were aded to the Vortex half stack series.
The two Vortex Combos sport a special feature: the lead channel's "Character" control. A twist is all it takes to sweep smoothly from American cream to British scream. A Clean channel, effects loop, headphones out, and a built-in reverb round out the combos' range of features. While the Vortex 112's 80-watt current feedback power amp drives one Celestion 12" Vintage Junior Speaker, the Vortex 212 is loaded with two of the same.
