The Gallien-Krueger MB210 500W 2x10 Ultralight Bass Combo Amp is an addition to GK's legendary MicroBass Series. It delivers a big sound from a light, compact package. At 350W the MB210 has the power to be heard in any situation. It's designed with preamp tone-shaping circuitry that feeds into a lightweight Class-D power amp. The preamp uses GK's 4-band active tone control section with a Contour preset feature. There are both Passive and Active bass inputs and a defeatable Limiter for controlling your sound. 2 x 10" neodymium speakers are extremely sensitive and help reduce the overall weight of this combo. The horn tweeter can be engaged or not to suit different playing environments or to further shape your sound. An 1/8" Aux. input and headphone jack allow for silent practice along with an MP3 player or other sound source. An XLR DI output is included for recording or live sound reinforcement.

Standard tone controls and graphic equalizers give you plenty of variation, but they don't provide what the instrument really needs. The fact is, graphic equalizers are intended for room equalization. The equalization in Gallien-Krueger amplifiers reflects 40 years of continuous development and refinement.

The GK equalizer is unique to the industry, it's not just a normal four band equalizer, each section is a special circuit optimized to perform a Bass specific job in its range of operation.

These sections are wired in series, adding to one another, to create a tremendously flexible equalizer that sounds natural at any setting. Now it is possible to obtain the sound you desire.

The Contour is used to complely revoice the amplifier by tuning between two different shaping circuits, with greatly different responses. With the control engaged, the low end is slightly boosted, the mids are dropped and the high end is pushed up.

The limiter is designed to detect signal levels at the input of the power amp that cause unwanted distortion. It attenuates extreme peaks to allow high volume output while maintaining signal integrity.

"G.I.V.E." Technology
The MB210, MB115 and MB212 pre-amps incorporate G.I.V.E (Gate Induced Valve Effect) Technology. Field effect devices are used with the gate biased in a way that emphasizes the optimum harmonic content of the signal. Working in conjunction with the unique four band active equalizer and contour, G.I.V.E. technology produces a consistently pleasing bass tone.

clean, present, open sound


from Uncasville, CT

Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB210-II 500W 2X10 Ultralight Bass Combo Amp:

I was looking for a bass combo that produced a clean sound with a great frequency response for practice and medium-sized venues. I compared a Markbass, Fender, Hartke and this GK with the controls set to neutral on all models. I was not interested in any effects other than the bass, mid and treble controls as I already had a VOX processor. The more expensive models tested were this GK MK210-ii 500 watt model and the Markbass CMD 102P. Although fine sounding, I would be hard pressed to hear much of a difference between the new Fender model v3 500 watt, the Hartke 115 500 watt and the Markbass CMD 102P despite substantial price differences. The GK MK210-ii however sounded dramatically more clean, present and open (much less boxy sounding) than the others. My decision was easy. While I am sure there are many other considerations other bassist have, the clean, present and open sound of this GK well met my criteria.

    Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB210-II 500W 2X10 Ultralight Bass Combo Amp:

    After trying to the MB212, I decided on the MB210. The 210, based on my ears only, sounded the best. Everyone hears things differently so this opinion is just that, an opinion. I also tested multiple Mark Bass items that compared to the GK products and I was not impressed, at all.
    I play a Warwick 4-string Double Buck Corvette with the MEC Active Electronics.
