Wow, this thing is so light! It weighs less than most companies 50W amps. It has a nice full sound due to the 15" speaker. The controls are simple, but effective. The push buttons on the Contour, Limiter and Horn On/Off are a great idea. It's not as flexible as a 100RB, but I think they were going for a more simplified "Practice Amp" motif. The AUX in is a great idea as is the headphone jack. I tried a few active and passive basses through it just to see what kind of tones I could get. I was able to get high quality sounds out of each bass I tried. For only 200W it is very loud and blows away other more expensive amps that I won't name that, supposedly, have more power. It actually kind of shocked me A/B'ing a few amps. GK must have a louder watt measurement than brand X, Y and Z. Bravo to GK for using real poplar plywood for the box instead of the cheaper and heavier particleboard. Only one beef, the grill rattled a little bit, but it just needed about half a turn on a screwdriver to fix it. No biggie. If I ever get in the market for a new combo amp, it will be this guy for sure.

I've waited a while to do this review- I don't like knee-jerk reaction reviews. I bought one of these several months ago to take on a gig 220 miles away in the middle of nowhere. It sounded great in the store, but when I got to the gig, IT DID NOT WORK AT ALL! Needless to say, I was not pleased. I called my salesperson at GC, (who I love, by the way- she's a real sweetheart!), but I had to read her to riot act. Thankfully, I was able to go through my sansamp into the board, so the show went on, but I gnashed my teeth all the way through. Once I got back home, she was able to get me a replacement on the spot, although I was hesitant to get another. Like other reviewers, I bought it for its weighing next to nothing. I like the fact that it moves a lot of air, and the basses I play, (Rick 4001, Marcus Miller, Telecaster bass) all sound great. On the down side, I've only had it for a few months, and the tolex(?) has started to come away from the unprotected corners. Bad glue, perhaps? Since that gig experience, I've only played it in my studio, not wanting to chance another occurance, so it hasn't been abused. I have an Acoustic B200 head with a Neo 2-10 cab and 15 cab, and it blows this away. I thought the GK's light weight would be a good idea for gigging. It is, but...

Excellent Bass Amp

By Carl H.

from Dallas Tx

Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB115 1x15 200W Ultralight Bass Combo Amp:

I played a lot of amps before buying the MB 115. There�ۡ���s nothing on the market that compares to this amp for sound. It is unlike any other. I traded in a bahringer 180 watt amp that was total trash. No lows and a lot of distortion in the sound. GK makes the best amp on the market. I can�ۡ���t say enough about them. If you are looking for clarity, deep lows and a all round quality sound, GK is what you�ۡ���re looking for.

Very impressed

By Rogue5

from Arvada, CO

Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB115 1x15 200W Ultralight Bass Combo Amp:

I walked into Guitar Center with every intention of buying an Acoustic B200 combo, until I played through this one. No comparison. This amp has much better bass, louder and cleaner than the Acoustic, at about 1/3 the weight. Since it cost only $50 more, it was a no-brainer. If it turns out to be reliable, this is the best deal out there for small combo amps.

Simply amazing

By Ian

from Hillsborough NC

Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB115 1x15 200W Ultralight Bass Combo Amp:

This amp is like a corvette. In that the Corvette is light and very powerful. It sticks 400hp to the road and this amp sticks 200w to the crowd. Simply amazing this amps ability to launch juicy tones down range and thump. The push buttons are AWESOME as is the what? 18 lbs? I love the simplicity! I went to GC today just to kill time. Found this baby sitting in the corner like a recluse and pulled it out. Now im selling my ampeg for this. Bravo to GK

Excellent Amp

By MJP

from Pulaski, TN

Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB115 1x15 200W Ultralight Bass Combo Amp:

I especially like the active and passive inputs, horn on/off options, and the active equilization. Depending on the need,I play a Fender Jazz (passive)or a MusicMan (active)bass and this amp enhances the sound quality of both systems. My Electric Double Bass sounds great through this amp due to the versatility in the EQ system. I reviewed several amps (Peavy, Fender, etc)and chose the GKMB115. I've been playing Bass for 30+ years, and this is a great amp.

Update on last review

By Rogue5

from Broomfield, CO

Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB115 1x15 200W Ultralight Bass Combo Amp:

I'm adding on to the last review now that I've had the chance to put it through the torture test. This thing still amazes me. I was up against a guitarist with a 100 watt Marshall half-stack, and it held it's own. After a whole night at full volume, it wasn't even warm to the touch. This amp moves a lot of air, too, when you stand in front of it. It surprises me how full-sounding it is, even at full volume. The bass is remarkable for a small combo.

So Sweeet!

By Steve Baltimore

from Baltimore, MD

Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB115 1x15 200W Ultralight Bass Combo Amp:

I have used or tested every brand on the market. Finally Gallien Krueger now has the best available combo bass amp - hands down. This amp is so light weight it puts a smile on your face. But the real news here is the excellent controls and tone. Very deep and beefy or, if you prefer, it gets crystaline clear highs. Absolutely terrific. And a great value too.

By far the best amp in its price range

By Brandon B

from Sterling Heights, Michigan

Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB115 1x15 200W Ultralight Bass Combo Amp:

This thing is absolutely fantastic! Ive used a 150 watt peavy combo amp, and an 8x10 ampeg cab, with a randall head, and to be honest, i would pick this amp over both of those any day.The control that you have over your tone is awesome, with the EQ, Horn, Limiter, and Contour options, not to mention the power that this insanely light amp can pump out. Perfect amp for playing live in any setting. I would suggest this to anyone and everyone!

A Great Little Combo Amp

By T R Bassman

from Old Bridge,New Jersey

Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB115 1x15 200W Ultralight Bass Combo Amp:

This GK Combo Amp is a great amp for the money.At 200 watts and at 33 lbs,I have more than enough power for playing in the clubs plus I'm won't break my back transporting it.The D.I input makes it easy to run into any soundboard for mixing.Too bad it didn't come with a jack to run another cabinet,The cabinets that GK makes as just as lite and portable.

Great basic amp

By Ray

from evansville, in

Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB115 1x15 200W Ultralight Bass Combo Amp:

Just picked up this amp last night. Needed a replacement that was loud and light. This one fits the bill. I was interested in hearing a GK combo after using my friend's GK 4x10. He likes my combo so much that he wished he bought one himself. At any rate, a great basic amp. If I could add one feature it doesn't have, it would be a mute switch (a tuner would be nice as well). My only small gripe so far is that even though it's light to carry, somehow a single handle just doesn't cut it, probably because it's on the top. It also would be nice if it came with a cover so that when the weather's lousy I don't have to carry it in a dry-cleaning bag. At any rate, love the sound. I tried Fender, Ampeg, Line6, and Acoustic - this one sounds the best.
