        Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB200 200W Ultra Light Bass Amp Head:

        OK, the amp is great, no problems. The problem I had was with GC: I turned down buying the floor model at my local shop. Then, I was shipped a - - - floor model from another city. No documentation, whatsoever, just the unit wrapped loosely in bubble wrap and placed in a big box. GC redeemed themselves with overnight shipping on a new, boxed unit.

        Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB200 200W Ultra Light Bass Amp Head:

        How in the heck did GK do it? This thing is tiny but it sounds gigantic. At 4 ohms this thing sounds HUGE! It doubles as an active/passive DI as well. I have heard some complaints about noise/hiss on the internet but mine is as quiet as a mouse. I don't like tweeters so maybe that has something to do with it. It's also "designed and assembled in the USA" (according to the stamp on the top). The knobs feel "super high quality smooth". I have a thing for how knobs feel. You can tell a lot about the build quality of a piece of equipment by the knobs/faders/connections. If a company skimps on those things then what else did they skimp on? This thing feels like it was handmade by elves in Black Forest.

        For my purposes...

        By tim huggins

        from Portland, Oregon

        Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB200 200W Ultra Light Bass Amp Head:

        I wanted to set up an extra practice rig at home. Often, I have my MarkBass 102 just sitting around, so I was looking for an inexpensive way to power it so I could sit around and play in my rec room (my main bass rig is rarely at home. Most often on a van, or in a studio, etc). Anyway, it's perfect. I wasn't expecting much, but it really has a lot of power (way more than I need for just screwing around), and the tone is very malleable. PLUS it has a headphone out, for when the wife and kid are sleeping... I'm nothing but impressed.

        Mouse that roared

        By ronald rangel

        from Chicago,IL

        Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB200 200W Ultra Light Bass Amp Head:

        This is a delightful little amp. The reasons I like it: It is small enough to fit in a messenger bad or briefcase, it is very clean sounding so you can imprint your own tone, it seems like more than 200 watts into 4ohm, its price is crazy low. This amp made the competition in this price range at Guitar Center seem quite feeble. The other 200-250 Watt heads couldn't keep up. It was nice to find the sonic leader was also the price leader. Of course if you're blasting a 8x10 then look elsewhere but for 12 or 2x10 it is fantastic. I haven't tried it with a 2x10 and 1x15 yet but want to. G-K products seem to have a good reputation and this looks and feels sturdy.

        Pint Size Powerhouse

        By Frank Podczerviensky

        from Virginia

        Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB200 200W Ultra Light Bass Amp Head:

        I have this amp mated to a GK 115MBE cabinet. Together, they make an awesome little rig! This amp packs plenty of punch for its size and the sound is clean, clear and tight. No muddiness. I wasn't able to demo this amp in the store, so I was a little worried it wouldn't sound as good as my small but excellent sounding Ampeg 1x12 combo. I was pleasantly surprised with the MB200 and look forward to many years with it. It appears well-built, and you just can't beat it for portability.

        Everyone should have one .............

        By YBF

        from Ohio

        Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB200 200W Ultra Light Bass Amp Head:

        Here's the bottom line - it sounds like my late-'80s 400RB that I had to retire from the road after YEARS of use. That 400RB is still my home amp, and this MB200 goes on the road with me now. It's SOOOOO portable. It sounds GREAT. Plenty of thick bass, but it's clear. Everything works as advertised; the contour switch re-voices the amp with a scooped tone - it works really well when needed. Don't be put off by the lack of a separate input gain control; you have a volume control on your bass. I usually use the input pad, but I don't play a lot of loud music. The times I've used it without the pad, it still sounded great. It sounds great with my acoustic bass fiddle and my electric basses; it's hard to get a bad tone out of it. The GK pre-amp controls are simple to use. If you need more power and features, get the 500W version. For portability, this can't be beaten; it easily fits into a small gig bag; it is a great piece of equipment. For what you get, the price is ridiculously low.

        Great amp but not for me.

        By Steve K

        from Payson, Utah

        Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB200 200W Ultra Light Bass Amp Head:

        I first saw this amp on the talkbass forum as a banner ad. I was looking for a second amp for practice and this one seemed like it would be perfect. It is amazing that you can pack so many features in such a small package. I loved the size, weight, price and power. I was also impressed at how solid it was. I did have a problem with the tone. I play a Fender Jazz bass into a Markbass mini cmd 121p. I totally love the tone I get and was hoping for something similar. When I got the GK MB 200 I tried it with 2 cabs I have; an Avatar B210 and a Markbass new york 121p. I wasn't getting the tone I wanted with either one. I did spend a lot of time EQing it. I would have given it a 3.5 but rounded up to a 4. It's because I couldn't find the tone I wanted. I really wanted to love this amp, but ended up returning it.

        Light weight and powerful

        By Kevin Palmer

        from Round Rock Texas

        Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB200 200W Ultra Light Bass Amp Head:

        This is coming from a guitar player who was tired of carrying a rack system with heavy but good power amp to auditions and small jams.l had got the idea from using my Line-6 pod into a practice amp and saying"this sound purdty good to bad l dont have more power".Then l started thinking about the mini power amps the size of a stomp box and thought if l had more watts then l could drive my 2-12 and maybe my 4-12? looked around to find a larger watt amp,nothing for guitars that was priced right for me so l stared looking at Bass amps,cause watts is watts right! Wow that was it l ordered on line 3 days later lt was here and l like it allot just what l hope for clean power and light weight and great price ta boot.
