Gallien-Krueger MB 212 Bass Amp Review
Let me just say that in testing, this thing delivered a knockout punch.
I played a P-Bass through it, and gave it a run at a few different styles. Funky slapping, punk inspired picking, even a little Iron Maiden wannabe galloping—all of it sounded good. This is a very versatile combo amp that acquits itself nicely in many different situations.
Here are a few things that stand out:
- Weighs only 37 pounds
- 500w @ 4 ohms
- Defeatable limiter
- 2 x 12″ Neodymium speakers
- Less than $800
To get this kind of sound and construction in such a lightweight combo, without spending over $800, would be very hard to do. That’s what makes the GK shine.
If you are needing a reliable bass combo, with serious sound that won’t kill you going from gig to gig, check out the Gallien-Krueger MB 212 combo today.No products found!
