    Super Amp

    This amp packs a big punch at only 5lbs. I had owned one previously and regretted getting rid of it so I finally was able to get another. This amp sounds great through my 2 2x12's and really bumps through my GK CX410 4ohm cab. It fits nicely in your gig bag.

    Amazing Output / Clean

    I bought the MB800 to replace my 20 year old GK 400 RB as suggested by Paul Allen my sales consultant. I was a little skeptical at first considering the size an weight: no need to worry. This amp cranks.
    Nice features such as the eq, active contour and channel switching capabilities let you dial in any sound you may be after.
    Light enough for a gig bag, but I purchased the rack ears to rack mount it. It is so good looking you'll want to protect it. The dials have a nice blue illumination when powered on, and the mute switch is great when break time rolls around.

    More than just loud...but yeah, it's LOUD!

    I've mostly only play through tube heads over the years. SVTs, V4Bs and while those are still great amps the MB800 is a monster. Crazy power and punch. The contour knob really helps push clear punch and the pre-gain gives over to some awesome growl ! Great amp with crushing power and for it's price blows away amps that have cost me four and five times as much. Save Your Back...and your bank account and get one of these.

    It's a BEAST

    After much hand ringing and head rubbing I ordered my MB800 compact bass head. I have been amazed, gidy, and left speehless with my purchase. First let me say that the weight on this unit is stunning, after 40 years of playing bass I have lived long enough to take advantage of technology. At 4.5 pounds, 800 watts it gives me everything I need, very easy to use on a dark stage with the lightup controls, Plus all the tone you need for Rock, Country, Blues. Just a great little workhorse. Can't wait to get the matching 410 cabinets. Do yourself and all the muscles you have strained over the years moving SVT heads. It's a BEAST.

    Great little head.

    Though I haven't figured out all the intricacies yet, this tiny powerhouse of an amp has power to spare. Only wish I had a speaker cab as light so I could take both to practice. Great capabilities!

    small box... BIG BOOM!

    What a great little power house! My drummer was skeptical based on the size of the unit but when we plugged in... DAMN. The only downside to the unit is that you have to order separate rack ears and they are not readily available.
