GALLIEN KRUEGER

Gallien Krueger MB 500 Head

Bass amplifier / top

Since Rob Gallien impressed a certain Carlos Santana so much with a self-built amplifier in his local music shop in 1968 that he immediately bought it for his bass player and later took it with him to his gig at Woodstock, Gallien Krueger has made history as far as the amplification of the low-frequency guild is concerned. In fact, Gallien has contributed a lot to what nowadays seems to be a matter of course in the field of bass amplification: the first bass amplifier with contour control, the first bass amplifier with DI output, the first 1000 watt bass amplifier etc.
The MB 500 is the middle one of its series, it delivers 500 watts into 4 ohms and still 350 watts into 8 ohms. That should be enough for most situations. The sound is typically Gallien Krueger, clear and mid-range and can be processed in many ways using the four-band tone control and the Contour control. You can also switch to a second, separate boost channel with its own volume control. Furthermore, an aux-in for an additional sound source and a combined headphone/line output are available. The chassis is made of aluminium and is very stable. Bügels protect the controls on the front. This means that the MB 500 is suitable for the road and the user gets a high-quality and powerful bass amplifier that can even be transported in a gig bag.
