Behringer has revealed a new practise amp range, all with their Virtual Tube Circuit, rated at 10, 20 or 40 Watts. The new HA-10G , HA-20R and HA-40R are designed to give you tube tone without the hassle of those little glass bottles rattling around in the rear of your amp.
Behringer HA Series
All three Behringer HA Series models have two independent channels and a three-band EQ. Across all three sizes, Behringer has evidently tried to keep things compact. The series uses the company’s Virtual Tube Circuit technology to give you tube-like tones without all the downsides of actual tubes.
HA-10G , HA-20R and HA-40R
Each combo is fitted with either a custom 6″, 8″ or 10″ Bugera speaker, depending on which size combo you opt for; the higher the wattage, the bigger the speaker. The HA-10G , HA-20R and HA-40R are then rated at 10, 20 0r 40 Watts respectively, with the R denoting whether or not you get a reverb; both the 20- and 40-Watt amps have a real spring reverb onboard.
The two larger models also have a Line Out with integrated speaker simulation, so you can go straight to a mixing desk or PA with these. All three models have a headphone out for silent practise.
As yet, the prices have not been officially released, but knowing Behringer, they should be very affordable. Potentially they could be a great buy for players on small budgets.
Behringer has bags of experience building guitar amps. Its Bugera lines have been around for years, so they should be able to knock out decent practice combos with no problem. You can hear the official demo videos below to get an idea of what these combos sound like.
