OVERVIEW

Big, thumping power in a portable size.

Continuing the evolution of the Gallien Krueger MB bass head series, the MB800 features incredible output, increased functionality and a completely discrete FET (field effect transistor) driven preamp.

With 800 massive watts of power, the MB800 can handle even the largest venues without breaking a sweat, and at 4.9 lbs. neither will your roadie. All of the controls of the MB800 are lit to indicate the current operating status including; input clip, tuning mute, Gain A, Gain B/Level-B, power amp clipping, limiter enable and EQ/Contour settings. It features the same FET technology used to create the legendary boost (G.I.V.E.) circuit found in all GK amplifiers for over 30 years is used in every stage of the MB800 preamp. Using FET devices to drive the GK four-band active EQ, Contour and Gain allows the MB800 to transition seamlessly from a full, warm, clean tone to full on GK growl.

FEATURES
  • Power: 800W
  • Four-band active EQ
  • Heaphone/chain/line output (selectable)
  • XRL output (pre/post EQ)
  • Mute switch
  • FX loop
  • Footswitch included

    Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB Fusion 800W Hybrid Bass Amp Head:

    I just had to give other musicians my take on this product. I'm not a compensated endorsee, I've never given a product endorsement before and my comments are probably too long but I hope this helps some of you with your decision on buying a bass amp.

    I bought this amp a few months ago. After hundreds of gigs (big and small) playing through an Ampeg Pro 4 (which is a great amp in its own right), I got tired of lugging the weight. I saw this little tiny amp after hours of surfing and decided to try it out.

    HANDS DOWN the best bass amp I have ever owned!!

    I took it out of the box and it looked like something you would buy a child from Toys R Us. That is the only con to this amp. **I ONLY say that because bassists might see this amp and pass it by because it's so small and "child like". Don't be fooled!!!!

    I took it to a gig and plugged into my full rig (of course). I play a Peavey Cirrus 4 string with custom gauge GHS Boomer strings and my cabs are a custom Mesa Boogie 6X10 sitting on top and an old American made Ampeg Classic 4X10 for the bottom. This amp is balanced, punchy, extremely powerful and very easy to use. It gave my cabs every bit of power they could handle, with room to spare.

    This amp gave my bass a tonal depth and quality which I hadn't really heard before. The balance this amp provided gave each string almost perfect clarity. I was absolutely blown away. I currently play my small to medium gigs using this amp with a single Avatar 12 cab for a great sound and unbeatable weight. My other cabs have been relegated to large or outdoor venues with this amp.

    I've only had it on a few gigs, (plus a few demos, letting a couple of my good friends around town play through it on their gigs; not a single negative comment), so I can't speak to this amps durability or GK's customer service. I hope I never have to.

    Lastly and this is not a negative for me but this amp is so small that it doesn't fit in a rack even with ears. You have to contact GK and get their custom ears to rack-mount this amp. I carry the amp, the Neutrik cable and the power cable in a padded laptop case and it works great.

    I know I didn't give any technical details in my comments and only a few superlatives--if you need technical, You Tube has some vids on this amp--but this is a GREAT amp that gives my bass a beautiful sound and weighs about as much as a six-pack of beer. The days of me lugging 60-110lb amps thinking that was the only way to get power and tone are over gang. Play well and stay safe all...

        Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB Fusion 800W Hybrid Bass Amp Head:

        This amp sounds great and provides plenty of volume with just the right set of features... and it's only 5 pounds! It would be 5 stars but for one issue: switching to gain B with the footswitch causes a noticeable dropout. I haven't recorded with it yet, but that's going to be problematic when I do. I've had to anticipate the spot where I'm going to switch to the boost and hit the switch slightly ahead of the downbeat.

        But otherwise, it's a fantastic amp at a reasonable price.
