A state-of-the-art high gain combo.

The Kustom HV100 tube/hybrid combo amplifier has 2 channels, each with gain and master volume controls. This Dual Master system lets players easily get natural tube overdrive and compression on the rhythm channel as well as the lead channel, for even more tonal options. The amp's EQ consists of passive bass, middle and treble controls that have the same specifications as Kustom's award-winning, all-tube Coupe amplifiers. The HV100's speaker-emulated direct out and variable volume boost controls are also borrowed from the Coupe.

An all new 24-bit digital multi-effects system has been created exclusively for the Kustom HV. It offers 16 high-fidelity, programmable effects with increased flexibility thanks to "Tap" or "Toggle" functions for each effect, letting players fine tune their choices. For example, Delay times, Reverb tails and Tremolo speeds can all be tapped to desired settings. Alternately, the Spring Reverb effect can be toggled between three different tonal selections reminiscent of the Coupe reverb; the Rotary Speaker can be ramped between speeds; and the Octave selection can be toggled to choose Octave Up or Octave Down. In all, the new HV100 multi-effects system provides stunning effects with unsurpassed flexibility, but without undue complexity.

New cabinet construction methods have been developed to enhance the resonance and musicality of the HV100 amplifier. In addition to crafting the cabinet to flex in response to the sound pressure, the electronic chassis is mounted in a way that doesn't impede the ability of the cabinet to resonate properly, an often overlooked element in the production of good tone.

The powerful Kustom HV100 combines 100 watts with two 12" Celestions. Visually, the HV100 sports vents on the top panel and a cool, rear-panel cutaway with mesh screen to view the preamp tube inside the chassis. Other details include new die-cast Kustom logos, jet-black grille cloth, white piping and black leather handles.

The Kustom HV100 Combo uses an exclusive new preamp circuit developed by James Brown, acclaimed amplifier designer and Kustom's chief engineer. The HV Series' preamp combines a 12AX7 tube - known for it's robust tonal qualities - with solid-state circuitry known for it's consistency and reliability.

Good tone and great features

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Kustom HV100 High Voltage Series Guitar Combo Amp:

The Kustom HV100 has good tone and some great features: 2 channels each with gain, volume, bass, mid, treble controls. Each channel has 2 additional "voice" push buttons. The rhythm channel has an Overdrive button and a button labeled Fat/Lean. The Lead channel has a Boost button and a button labeled Punch/Grind. This gives you 4 "voicings" per channel or a total of 8 "voicings" in all. This gives you a wide variety of sound qualities and lets you fine tune your overall sound. There is an additional master variable boost knob and all the effects. One of the great advantages of tube amps, even single tube hybrid amps, is the ability to effect a change in the overall performance of your amp with the simple change of a $10 part. This amp comes with a typical high gain 12AX7 tube, and the gain comes on fast and furious especially on the rythym channel. I tried mid and a low gain tubes as well. The lower gain tubes smooth out the gain ramp and give you a more useable, tunable gain control throughout the range. What you want here will depend on the type of room you are playing in as well as what you want out of your amp. In a large, loud room you may want all that gain, but in a small room maybe not. In any case its a simple change to alter the amp to the room or to your taste. I think the lower gain tubes also make the "voicings" more distinct. People have commented on the wimpy handle/strap. Mine ripped off. Its not strong enough for the weight of this amp. Put a couple cup washers under the strap end screws and that should prevent the strap from tearing off its end cups.This amp isn't as sweet and clean sounding as my all tube 2X12 combo but it is more versatile and is more fun to play. I like it. I'll keep it.

Comments about Kustom HV100 High Voltage Series Guitar Combo Amp:

Ive had this amp for a little over a year and use it at every gig and every rehersal, have had zero problems! love the tones this thing puts out. has great effects ,although i don't use them much due to the fact i get them off the pedal board instead. and she can get plenty load, i don't think ive had it over half way up in the time ive owned it , other than when i first got it and had to seee what she had.I did have to replace the carry handle though, this baby weighs about 55lb and the handle didn't hold it's weight. Over all this i money well spent! a great amp with great sound for any style music, with plenty of power. I recommend it!

The best allround amp i have owned!

By Parker1963

from Canada

Comments about Kustom HV100 High Voltage Series Guitar Combo Amp:

This Kustom amp the HV100 is one of the best overall values in an amp i have seen in years,I own Marshalls ,Egnater,Fender, Peavey and the Kustom out shines them all in versitility.For recording there is a built in XLR that actually works and sounds like a real mic set-up the onboard effects are worth the price of the amp alone and here is the sounds more like a Tube amp than some of my most expensive tube harsh ice pick or fizzyness like some other solidestate tube hybirds this amp has great bottom end and bell like quality's in the clean mode SRV and Blues scream through this amp.The slightest movement of the boost or mid and treble knobs give you different usable sounds for all types of music.Originally i bought the HV65watt 1 12 amp but loved it so much that i also bought the HV100.

Comments about Kustom HV100 High Voltage Series Guitar Combo Amp:

Ok so heres the deal took this amp in on a trade for some old gear that i had laying around. Turns out the rythem channel is really nice and has sparkling clean highs,nice low end with the overdrive button active. However the lead channel gets rather thin sounding and very little bottom end so it is best to use your own effects pedal for distortion and stay with the clean channel. As far as the built in DSP these are no more then a sales point, I have scrolled through the multi effects and found that the only one that really is worth using is the automatic reverb but the delay is kinda cool just wish they would have included a foot switch with a tap tempo button. Also would have been nice if they would have put a seperate reverb and not included this as part of the DSP's but this is not a line6 or Vox and they do fall short in the effects department. Over all i would say this is a good backup amp and being a hybrid you get the best of both worlds the tubes bright sound and dependability of soild state. i would say this amp would rate around an 8 on the 10 scale just because of the lead channels poor sound quality and for the lack of control on the dsp's the speakers are good even not being vintage 30's they do produce a nice sound all the way around. I personally would not have paid the 5 to 6 hundred this amp sold for as there are better ones out there in this price range just do your homework. However I would buy this on the used market for a couple hundred and that would be about it in my eyes
