GALLIEN-KRUEGER MB800 800-WATT LIGHTWEIGHT BASS HEAD Guitar World AUSTRALIA
Just when you thought bass heads couldn't get any smaller and more powerful - along comes the Gallien-Krueger MB800. GK's really done it this time - packing massive firepower and full pro functionality into an affordable micro-sized, featherweight head. Wielding its massive 800 watts, the MB800 handily deals with stadium gigs - and at 4.9 pounds, no one will believe you don't have a ginormous amp hidden in the wings. The MB800's controls are illuminated to indicate operating status: input clip, tuning mute, Gain A, Gain B/Level-B, power amp clipping, limiter enable and EQ/Contour settings. Every stage of the MB800's discrete FET driven preamp features the same FET technology used to create the proprietary Boost circuit found in all GK amps. (That's GK's Gate Induced Valve Effect - G.I.V.E. for short.) Driving the MB800's 4-band active EQ, Contour, and Gain with FET devices allows the MB800 to migrate seamlessly from warm and clean, to a full-on growl with major attitude.
