The Kustom® KG100HFX is a classic, 100-watt guitar amp head. It offers two channels (Rhythm and Lead), tone controls and digital effects. Although it will work with a wide variety of speaker cabinets, it is intended to use with the Kustom KG412 cabinet because it will deliver all 100 watts to this 4-ohm cabinet.
The KG100HFX’s Rhythm channel offers clear, dynamic tones that are perfect for a wide variety of musical styles. Using the Gain control, the Lead channel can dish out anything from chunky Classic Rock sounds to the heaviest, scooped Metal tones out there. Separate Bass, Middle and Treble controls let players fine-tune the tonal response as required.
In addition, the KG100HFX provides built-in Reverb and Delay effects that may be activated on the amp’s front panel. Reverb can provide anything from subtle room ambiance to an all-out wash of cavernous sound. Delay is perfect for fattening up lead tones, especially when combined with distortion. Chorus adds a shimmering, liquid-like quality to the sound, especially with chords.
Like every KG amp, the KG100HFX offers an auxiliary input for plugging in an MP3 or CD player to practice along with tunes and a 1/8-inch headphone input. Now you can leave your KG412 speaker cabinet at your band’s rehearsal space, bring your KG100FX head home and practice along with MP3s – all without the need for a speaker cabinet. Just plug in your headphones and rock!
An Effects Loop with Send and Return jacks provides flexibility for integrating external effects and processors. All KG Series amplifiers provide a five-year, transferable electronics warranty to give buyers extra peace of mind with their purchase.
When the KG100HFX is used with a dual-function footswitch, channel-switching and a “hidden” volume boost feature may be activated. The boost is perfect for making solos stand out in a band mix. (Note: The Kustom KACFS201 footswitch may be used for this application.)
