Little Big Head: GK MB800You're a bass player, and you're picky about your amplification. You want it all: ginormous firepower and full-on pro functionality in a tiny, lightweight, affordable head. Impossible? No - it's the Gallien-Krueger MB800. GK's really pulled it off. Armed with a blistering 800 watts and totally discrete FET (field effect transistor) driven preamp, this little brute handles arena gigs without breaking a sweat, and at 4.9 pounds - neither will your roadies.
GK's packed the MB800 with serious pro features you'll appreciate. You get illuminated controls to keep you informed, including input clip, tuning mute, Gain A, Gain B/Level-B, power amp clipping, limiter enable and EQ/Contour settings. The preamp features the same FET technology used to create GK's legendary Boost circuit (Gate Induced Valve Effect) found in all GK amps. Driving the MB800's 4-band active EQ, Contour and Gain with FET devices allows the MB800 to seamlessly transition from big clean tone to GK's signature growl.
If you're in the market for a bass head that's big on power and features, and small in size, weight, and price - check out the GK MB800. What an awesome little big head!
