Choptones HK STSM - TH-U Expansion

HK STSM is the TH-U expansion library, created by Choptones, seeking to recreate the sound of an authentic Hughes & Kettner Statesman Dual EL34* head.

The original amp features two channels, each with a selectable mode to change the texture: clean channel has a "twang" switch for a brighter tone and the overdrive channel has an onboard gain/midrange boost for more punch. All these textures are available in the library.

The HK STSM library contains 80 rigs, captured using the following gear*:


  • Marshall 1960 4x12 loaded with Celestion V30
