    Little Powerhouse!

    When I was looking for an amp to pair with my Kala bass I wanted something that gave a true tone, not muddy, like so many can be. This little MB110 is amazing...super crisp with plenty of bottom end puts out an amazing sound. I also love the fact that its only 20 pounds! My band mates were shocked when they heard how much this little guy put out. If you need a great bass amp for practice and gigging in small to medium venues, this really is the ticket. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

    I wanted something for practice, that sounds good and is easy to move around, small and lightweight. I use the headphone jack when I don't want to disturb anyone. I use the AUX in for metronome or iPad so I can play along when needed.

    I'll add that it sounds great, I really like the tone from this 10inch speaker. Much louder than I need, but it's always nice to have some extra gas in the tank.

    Finally, this was my 1st purchase from sweet water. Very prompt delivery, I couldn't believe someone called me to see how it was going. Very nice touch.

    Small Bass Amp with big Balls!

    Thanks Tony Dayton at Sweetwater, you are the best. Tony said, just get the GK MB110 and you will love it. The tones are great and I mic the cab and also run this direct for a channel of live and direct.

    Awesome Little Amp

    The MB110 was the first small amp I tested when looking for a replacement for my super heavy older amp. I was looking for something with 100+ amps. I purchased 2 other amps from other manufacturers, but ended up returning both of them.

    I returned to my first choice nad purchased the MB110 from Sweetwater and have loved the amp. So far, I've only used it to practice at home and played once at our church. Can't wait to try it in some larger venues.

    Just to give you an idea, when we ran the amp in the church system using the DI set to pre (amp knobs have no effect on signal), they thought it was turning up the sound in the main PA. I could not convince them that it was all the MB110. They said they heard it coming from the subwoofers! As a side note, our church is just over 2,000 square feet in the main room.

    The switchable DI was one of the main features that got my attention. I like to be able to plug into a system with DI, and not have to carry a direct box around with me. The other thing I really like is that it only weighs 21 pounds. I can carry my guitar on one shoulder and the amp in the other hand.

    One down side. The amp does seem to have a slightly weaker sound around the 100Hz range. Boosting EQ didn't seem to help it there, as it affects the frequences around the 100Hz also. Then again, it may just be me or my room acoustics.

    As far as overall volume, I did run a simple test with an SPL meter. For those curious, with bass on the EQ set to max and volume at max, I got a reading of around 105db from about 8-10 feet away. This was done in a basement with concrete on all sides, so there was very little resonance from anything other than the amp.

    I highly suggest getting this amp if you want something small, light, and not super powerful that still sounds pretty loud in smaller settings, and that can be run with a Direct Out to the PA. I also highly recommend Sweetwater!

    Gallien-Krueger never fails to impress. I got this mainly as a practice amp, but was blown away by the great tone and huge sound this little amp put out. It gets loud enough that I can play small gigs with this thing - wow. The tone is immense, and it's great that GK includes the 4 band active EQ, as well as the mid scoop and -10db. It's everything I love about GK in a small, 20lb amp.

    Truly amazing

    Where was this thing all of my life? I am just short of turning 64, and have been a bassist over 40 years. At 21 lbs and 100 watts, this could only be dreamed about and allows me to still play pro in 3 bands. You load in and out of a gig in one trip. The sound through my Jbass just punches through even next to any too loud drummer in a medium size room. Has XLR out for more when needed. Second GK product I have bought and am very pleased with them.
