Gallien Krueger MB500 micro sized bass amp with super size features.
by Brad Mock from Leander, TX1st impressions: This is one pretty shiny little thing, amazing something so small and light can have all these features and power. It is well put together although there is a slight sound on the sha... read more [+]ke test. My only issue so far is the placement of the limiter switch, this switch could be damaged if rack mounted, would rather it was on back panel. Thru my Walter Box 1x10 it is surprisingly warm but much of that is an artifact of the speaker, it easily fills the room with warm round bass, perfect for those little sit down gigs or for recording. The small footswitch included for boost is a nice size with detachable cable and includes a status LED, nice touch. I transport my pedal board in a keyboard bag and the MB500 fits in the front pocket perfectly, very handy. First gig with a loud rock band pushing a 2x15 EV & 1x12H was loud and clear, with the master half way up was plenty loud and the DI out worked flawlessly. 2nd gig was a moderate volume outdoor jazz thru a 1x15 and once again the MB500 shined thru nicely. close [-]

I gig regulary and push this amp hard playing a Warwick and MTD active 5 string through a 4-12 GK cab it has no prob keeping u... read more [+]p The boost channel worked out great for setting up a 2nd bass with the push of a button. The tone controls are like no other amp Ive had the are super sensitive and give you plenty of tone control. The contour control does alot to your EQ setting very quickly to give you slap and smooth tones dont get no easier to carry. Dont be afraid I was but Im a believer now close [-]
