      This amp seems like it was made for upright bass. With this amp I can drive a big band, any size combo, and it even gives great full tone while bowing. It will boom in the low register without clipping, and without changing your EQ it will give you sweet, punchy tone in the high register, and it is incredibly portable and roadworthy. Anybody considering an amp for upright gigs should consider this piece of equipment.

      This amplifier is well built, portable, and loud; but it is also very limited in tone. The tones are either muddy or chirpy. There seems to be no high mid response and very undefined low mids. The highs are brittle and harsh. These symptonms worsen as you increase the volume. I have used a german Warwick Corvette, MIM Fender Jazz, and MIA Fender P with this amp and have yielded similar results. If you are looking for something portable with similar wattage, I would recommend something with more speaker like a 2x10", 1x15", etc. You will have more headroom throughout the frequency range.

        Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB150S-112III 150W MicroBass Combo Amp:

        I just started to learn the upright bass (mine is electric - NXdesigns) and after some research determined that GK was the preferred amp for upright players. At first I ordered the MB112 and while it was fairly small, it had an echo and hiss that drove me nuts. I worked with GK's support but was never able to resolve the issue to my satisfaction. Upon deeper research the MB150 microbass kept popping up on bass forums, but the hefty price tag was making me hesitate. However, when I thought about how I payed for my bass, I figured I should get a better amp. So I exchanged the MB112 in and ordered this one. It is fantastic! No hiss, no echo and sounds so smooth. Highly recommend for all upright bass players.

            If you're looking for a light portable bass amp that's easy to use and has great sound, I'd recommend this highly. Of course, this isn't an Ampeg 8X10, but it's amply loud for rehearsals and small gigs, and you can always go through the PA for larger venues. My past rigs have been Eden and Mark, but looking to lighten the load, I decided to try the GK. Construction is excellent and hopefully durability will be as well. Time will tell.

            This amp is definitely the best out there whether you are an electric bass player or plugging up your upright. I bought it a few months ago and absolutely couldn't be any happier.

            Transformed my junky Don't mess with the others, if your a bass switcher from upright to electric this is the tool for you! I run mine with the Conture switch out for electric and in for upright. I found that out he first week it will cause it to sound like two different amps. BUY IT!

            Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB150S-112III 150W MicroBass Combo Amp:

            An awesome amp. I play flamenco fusion music with a Godin fretless 5-string bass and Ergo elctric upright 5 string bass. My bandmates complimented me on my sound, but did not realize I got a new amp. Since I made the switch, they (and I as well) love my tone.This amp has excellent features for getting a really fat lo-end good for reggae, to a punchy mid-range "jaco-esque" tone, to treble

            I have owned the GK MB 150S a long time ago. The sound,controls and its lightweightness were great.BUT...I am no longer a fan because I have had serious issues with the cabinet.

            Awesome overall bass amp for it size, weight and sound. Got me thru a lot of gigs plus lugging it to gigs was a snap because I have a Gig Bag which I could the amp on my shoulder. If I need more volumne, just mike or direct box to the PA, no problem.Also, great resell value!

            I have had this amp for about 6 years. Not only does it sound great its light and super portable. This amp was left in a basement during a hurricane and was under 6ft of water before I found it again. My other equipment there was destroyed. Took it into the shop for a clean up and its been running fine for the last four years. Mackie board and Carvin PA were DOA while this little gem was the only survivor.
