A combo with extensive tone-shaping features that delivers big sound in a light, compact package.

The Gallien-Krueger MB210 500W 2x10 Ultralight Bass Combo Amp is an addition to GK’s legendary MicroBass Series. It delivers a big sound from a light, compact package. At 350W the MB210 has the power to be heard in any situation. It's designed with preamp tone-shaping circuitry that feeds into a lightweight Class-D power amp. The preamp uses GK's 4-band active tone control section with a Contour preset feature. There are both Passive and Active bass inputs and a defeatable Limiter for controlling your sound. 2 x 10” neodymium speakers are extremely sensitive and help reduce the overall weight of this combo. The horn tweeter can be engaged or not to suit different playing environments or to further shape your sound. An 1/8" Aux. input and headphone jack allow for silent practice along with an MP3 player or other sound source. An XLR DI output is included for recording or live sound reinforcement.

Standard tone controls and graphic equalizers give you plenty of variation, but they don’t provide what the instrument really needs. The fact is, graphic equalizers are intended for room equalization. The equalization in Gallien-Krueger amplifiers reflects 40 years of continuous development and refinement.

The GK equalizer is unique to the industry, it’s not just a normal four band equalizer, each section is a special circuit optimized to perform a Bass specific job in its range of operation.

These sections are wired in series, adding to one another, to create a tremendously flexible equalizer that sounds natural at any setting. Now it is possible to obtain the sound you desire.

The Contour is used to complely revoice the amplifier by tuning between two different shaping circuits, with greatly different responses. With the control engaged, the low end is slightly boosted, the mids are dropped and the high end is pushed up.

The limiter is designed to detect signal levels at the input of the power amp that cause unwanted distortion. It attenuates extreme peaks to allow high volume output while maintaining signal integrity.

“G.I.V.E.” Technology
The MB210, MB115 and MB212 pre-amps incorporate G.I.V.E (Gate Induced Valve Effect) Technology. Field effect devices are used with the gate biased in a way that emphasizes the optimum harmonic content of the signal. Working in conjunction with the unique four band active equalizer and contour, G.I.V.E. technology produces a consistently pleasing bass tone.

    Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB210-II 500W 2X10 Ultralight Bass Combo Amp:

    When I got this amplifier, I was all about it. Amazing tone, plenty of volume, light weight, ect. However, after about a month of having it, it totally fried out in the middle of a gig. The volume was set at around 10 o'clock and the -5db button was down, and I was running through the house system so I was not pushing it too hard. I figured this was a fluke thing. I returned it and got a brand new one. Wouldn't you know it, one month later the same thing happened. I've sent it back to GK now and I am waiting to see what they will do for me. They said this was the first they heard of an issue like this, but these other reviews paint quite a different picture. Bottom line, do NOT purchase this amp if you are a working musician.

      Comments about Gallien-Krueger MB210-II 500W 2X10 Ultralight Bass Combo Amp:

      Bought the amp four months ago, sounded great.
      Start to notice a burning smell about two months
      in, didn't think is was the amp, thought it was
      house wiring. Several days ago during a practice
      it started to smoke. I am having it fixed locally
      because I don't really want to mess with shipping
      and MFG warranties....
