The GrandMeister 36 is possibly the most complete electric guitar amplifier Ive tried, and Ive tried a lot! - Bob Thomas, Sound on Sound

This is Grand: You'd think that eight EQ and six FX knobs for each of the four channels would add up to 52 pots. But not with Smart Rotary Controls, where each knob serves as four gain or tone controls. On top of that, simply pressing FX ACCESS turns the tone controls into FX knobs. The rear panel of the GrandMeister offers all the features that made the Meister format such a smash success. And with the built-in Power Soak, it can go from a roar to a whisper without sacrificing tone. Ditto for the onboard Red Box, which always feeds rich, thick power amp tone straight to mixing consoles.
