Best $250 I ever spent!!!!

By bassgroove71

from Cordova, TN

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

I bought this amp head, taking a chance and hoping it sounded descent. I was looking for a light weight amp head to reduce the amount of overall weight I had to haul. When I got this in, I plugged it in and used just my headphone to simply test the overall sound quality. The sound was so incredibly warm, I am very surprised. Next, I plugged it up to my cabinet (2-12" in a poted box with a handling load of 160watts @ 4 ohms). I only turned this amp head up to about level 3 and my son came running up from the back of the house. He asked me what was shaking the house down...lol. I have only turned this up half way, but the sound and tone quality is so immaculately warm. I have never owned an all tube amp but I did play through a friend's once. That is the general sound quality you get from this head. And, it's only 2.5lbs, fits right in my gear bag! My suggestion, if you have been pondering whether or not to get this, go for it! You will not be disappointed. It's all the quality and warmth of Gallien Krueger, at a fraction of the cost and size!

GK MB 200

By Jim Hobbs

from West Linn Oregon

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

I own several bass amps & I played a small room with this head along with a 2 ten cabinet. Everyone was amazed by it's size & how nice it sounded with my bass. I ran it flat. My intention is to use it to run my SPD 30 Roland Octopad. My thoughts are it could cut any room with in reason when DI'd. The big hope is that it is a reliable piece of equipment. The weight & size enables it to fit in a small laptop case with room for the power cord, cables, & at 2 pounds makes this amp a winner for this aging rocker. The price point is also excellent.

This little head is a scary monster

By Marcelo Verrie

from Buenos Aires, Argentina

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

I bought the Gallien-Krueger MB200 200W Ultra Light Bass Amp Head, a couple of weeks ago, and I̴��m really amazed. I̴��m playing bass for most than twenty years in small and mid venues and teaching at home, and It̴��s the best bass head a had the oportunity to try. It̴��s conected to a Hartkee Xl 2x10 bass cabinet. The sound is perfect, so clear and deep, it really cuts in any frecuency, so you can really hear the bass in any song. Think in the price, the sound, and the light weight of this bass head if you will change your bass amp. It really worth it.

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.

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.

      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.

        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.
