Founded by Robert Gallien and Rich Krueger way back in 1968, Gallien-Krueger has since earned themselves a sterling reputation in the music world for their versatile, solidly-built instrument amplifiers - especially among bass guitarists. With that being said, Gallien-Krueger was also well known in the 80s for producing killer solid state guitar amplifiers. Although they stopped producing guitar amps in the early 90s, Gallien-Krueger's solid state combo guitar amplifiers are now highly sought after in the used market.
There is more than one Gallien-Krueger solid state combo guitar amplifier to keep an eye out for in this catalog. The 250ML 2x6.5 50W Guitar Combo Amp has been known to show up in our previously-owned inventory and it's definitely worthy of any headbanger's consideration. First unleashed in the early 80s, this amp was a top seller during that decade. It boasts 100 watts of power, cool studio effects and a "lunch-box" sized enclosure for easy transportation to and from gigs.
Another popular Gallien-Krueger solid state amp was the 212SC. If you happen to come across this monster, consider yourself lucky. Plugging into one is like taking a time machine back to a period when spandex, hairspray and soaring solos with Flying V guitars ruled radio stations and music video airwaves. Like the 250ML, the 212SC usually comes with a very generous price tag in the used section, so happy browsing!
