Marshall Introduces Kerry King Signature MG10KK Practice Amp
(Marshall | Posted 2008-02-12)
Marshall Amplification introduces the new Kerry King Signature MG10KK practice amp. It combines King’s look and attitude with Marshall’s legendary sound in a portable, ready-to-shred package, complete with an exclusive DVD featuring King’s personal practice tips and advice. “My friends at Marshall have been cool enough to produce my own ass-kicking practice amp. The MG10KK – heavy as a pair of concrete boots!” remarks King proudly.
Based on the MG10CD – King’s longtime practice amplifier of choice – the MG10KK offers Marshall-size tone in a compact form. The amp features a striking red and bold black faceplate design and, drawing from King’s trademark look, shares the same tribal-art motif of his signature Marshall JCM800 2203KK head.
Measuring a mere 11.6" x 12.2" x 7.5" and weighing only five pounds, this 2-channel, 10-Watt amp offers a powerful 6.5" speaker. Controls include Clean Volume, Overdrive Gain, Overdrive Volume and Tone Contour. The amp has Marshall’s proprietary FDD™ (Frequency Dependent Damping) circuitry built-in, which accurately reproduces the interaction of a tube amp’s power stage with the loudspeakers it is driving. Additionally, this practice amp boasts an MP3/CD input for jamming along, an Emulated Line Out and a Headphone jack that, when used, mutes the speaker for “silent” practice sessions (a feature King rarely, if ever, uses!).
The included exclusive Guitar Abuse tutorial DVD features King’s personal insight and demonstrations on just what this amp can do to help improve practice sessions.
King comments, “I know you’re going to dig this amp as much as I do…make it thunder!”
The new Marshall Kerry King MG10KK practice amp will be available in early 2008 with a U.S. MSRP of $139.99.
