Harmony Central news - "Another amp I didn't get to play was Hughes & Kettner's Zentera modeling amp (zentera page at Harmony Central). Used in tandem with a MIDI pedal, you can summon up a variety of tones as well as effects in real time. Fortunately, demonstrating these amps were two very skilled players of the Stevie Ray Vaughan variety. Though I personally shy away from modeling amps, I have to admit that the SRV tone was basically nailed with this model. In other words, it was bright but not harsh, it was dirty but not saturated, and it allowed the personality of the various pickup settings from a Strat to shine through. The Zentera's two 12" Celestion(r) speakers allow for stereo effects, powered by dual 100 Watt power amps. Hughes & Kettner says the amp should be released sometime this summer."

Effects + Essentials: The effects section of the Zentera provides studio-quality Reverb, Delay and Modulation effects, as well as extremely natural sounding emulations of classic guitar effects like Tape Delay and Spring Reverb. Furthermore, Zentera includes classic pedal effects (like the Wah-Wah, for example) which can be controlled by mean of an expression pedal. Integral RedBox(tm) Cabinet Simulation as well as a digital tuner are of course included with an amp of this class.
All Amp Type, Gain, Voicing Section, Master and Effects settings can be saved to 128 memory locations as presets and be called up at the amp or via MIDI Stageboard (optional).
Large display shows settings.
2 x 100-watt power amp. 2 12" Celestions.
