Gallien-Krueger Announces MB Fusion 800 Bass Amplifier

Gallien-Krueger MB Fusion 800 Bass Amp

Gallien-Krueger has expanded its MB series bass amplifiers with the MB Fusion 800, an 800-watt amp that brings together an all tube preamp and a digital power amp. Similar to the rest of the line, the MB Fusion 800 is built with an aluminum chassis and is sized to fit in a gig bag for easy portability.

Gallien-Krueger MB Fusion 800 Bass Amp tubes - close-upThe MB Fusion offers many of the same features as the regular MB Fusion, including dual gain stages, a contour filter, and a 4-band EQ. The contour filter and mid-frequency controls are selectable by pushing the knob and setting the frequency you want to adjust. Pushing the Master Knob engages or disengages the built-in limiter, and pushing the Gain A and Gain B knobs allows you to drive the tubes to get different tones in tandem with the Level-B knob. All of the controls are backlit and change colors when engaged – including the mute switch – to make your settings clearly visible.

Back-mounted features include a selectable headphone/chain/line output, and XLR out with pre/post EQ switch, a footswitch jack and an effects loop.

The GK MB Fusion 800 will be hitting the streets in the 4th quarter of 2012, with a price tag of $899. For more, check out the GK website.
