Gallien-Krueger MB150S Microbass Head Reviews 3

$315 US at Daddy's Junky Music, Albany NY. I am on the watch for very compact gear, and this thing is about a foot wide, under 3" tall and not very deep. Also I already use a G-K Microbass combo, so I knew what the sound would be.

Really small, not too expensive, 4 channel EQ plus seperate gain and master, with a limiter on the master. I especially like the limiter.

150W @ 4ohm is not a huge amount of power. My combo has a chorus that sounds really good, but this is the 150S head and only the 150E head has chorus.

Case is 0.1" [2.5mm] aluminum with a heat sink built into the top [mildly grooved]. Two 1/4" speaker jacks, XLR DI, line out, FX loop, and headphone jacks, 4-knob EQ, plus boost and contour mini-knobs cover the entire front and rear panels. Input has pad switch, AC cord is removeable. My Microbass combo has been like a rock, and others who have those combos report the same, so I expect this will be very very reliable.

Great features for bass, electric bass or jazz guitar in a trio or quartet, able to DI to the house and still drive a monitor cab on stage. All the features and power you'll need for smaller to midsize venue. More bottom than you usually need, fairly clean but not sterile sound.
