    I was looking for a tube sound without the excessive weight. This Amp is fairly warm, and when paired with a tech 21 para driver it has a nice fat sound. After speaking to a representative with GK I was sold on this amp. This bad boy rocks!!

      Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB210-II 2x10 500W Ultralight Bass Combo Amp with Tolex Covering:

      I had been playing out of an swr working man 400w with the working man 4x10 for 10 years. The swr is def the king of low end tones but it wasn't very versatile and didn't give me the good active aggressive flea like sound that I wanted. On top of that my old cab weighs 97 pounds and the head is heavy af too. The gk 210 gave me exactly what I wanted. Nice low end but real clear punchy in your face treble and high mid. And it's 37 pounds. On top of every thing I swear this thing is louder at 350 watts than my swr at 400w. Can't wait to play so small shows with it

          I wanted to come back with a follow up review. I have taken the amp out to a couple of events of different sizes, and the amp stood strong. One occasion, my settings on the equalizer was changed in transport, and I did not check the settings before I started play due to some issues I was handling before this event (still bad move on my end). However, My boost, bass, master volume was cranked all the way to the max, and the amp handled it with no problem. Now, I did not have my Bass cranked all the way, but to know that the bass amp can hold up in extreme condition is a plus for me. Lastly, I want to correct part of my review from earlier when I mentioned that the headphone jack was mono. That is not the case. It is stereo. The mistake was more than likely an operator error. Again, this amp will pay for itself and you will not be disappointed.

          Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB210-II 2x10 500W Ultralight Bass Combo Amp with Tolex Covering:

          Purchased the MB210-II around a year ago. I was between this amplifier and the Ampeg Ba-210 and actually ordered the latter as an open box product. Well, luckily for me the Ampeg arrived nonfunctional, so I went with the GK for its extra power, and was introduced to a fantastic amp. Since I've played it at rehearsals and gigs, tossed in trunks and trucks, and it holds up beautifully. Its small design and 35 pound weight has my guitar players envious, and I've used this outside with no external amplification and filled up a park with clear sound. Honestly however, it does seem a bit sterile sounding and doesn't seem to have that "classic" tone or "vibe". But in terms of versatility, and portability, I wouldn't have any other amp behind me. Thanks to GK for a great USA built product.

            Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB210-II 2x10 500W Ultralight Bass Combo Amp with Tolex Covering:

            As a bassist who plays steadily in restaurants and in house jams I have appreciated the light cabinet of the GK above all.

            At a foot and a half wide, 2 feet tall, the cabinet fits the cramped spaces in which I often play. Happily, it even fits in the front seat of the Miata MX-5.

            The sound is widely adjustable. I can get go from a hard, contemporary sound to the old school vibe, as needed. Controls are not complicated, which I like.

            I have broken things twice in these active 5 years. Fixed without sending it to factory both times.

            Once I stupidly tilted it back against a wall without any bracing. When it fell on its back it cracked the power cable input port. Pulling it out I got a big spark and a powder burn on the aluminum back. But I youtubed how to pull the amp and ordered the plastic port from the factory. A GK tech gave me a run-down of what to do via a phone call.
            Repaired it, reconnected it and have not had a moment's issue since.

            Recently a lightning strike extremely close to my house knocked out the wifi and an entire house circuit. The GK was plugged in during the strike. Afterwards it was not dead but wouldn't play - no sound. Took it to an amp repairman in Shreveport who found one of the op amps was dead. He replaced it for a hundred and I have not had a moment's issue.

            I'm entirely happy with it.

            I play a Hofner made in China, which is a beauty, and a Squier Jaguar SS, also a rock solid axe.

            Delivery from MF was terrific as it consistently is.

            Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB210-II 2x10 500W Ultralight Bass Combo Amp with Tolex Covering:

            I just picked up the amp yesterday and already feel my money was well spent. What sold me on this combo was when I tested with my bass some time ago, and played the B string. It handled it with no problem with a very clear and nice tone. The ports and 2-10s work well together and gives the impression of either 4-10s or 2-12s. It does not sound tight like most 10s will sound. Not that the tightness would be a bad thing, it is just part of the combo's features and technology. The rest of tones are clear and full. Speakers are full range and you can turn the tweeter off and still have a bright sound. I plan on writing another review some months down the line once I travel with it a couple of times. The volume sounds good so far, but the jury is still out on that until I test it at different venues of different sizes. I play for the church and follow the choirs when they are invited. Once I break it in real well, I'm sure I will be able to give another review. However, the first impression fresh out of the box was so incredible I couldn't wait. So well that the owner of the shop I had it ordered through is asking to borrow it or get himself one.
