Italy’s GR Bass Amps are now available in the U.S., and they’re now shipping the GR Bass ONE800. The 800-watt bass amp offers lots of tonal tweaking with a four-band EQ section that includes three-way frequency switches for the Lo-Mid and Hi-Mid ranges. Deep and bright switches offer more general EQing while a Pure switch allows you to bypass all tone controls for a “‘straight-wire-with-gain’ approach to obtaining sonic purity.”
A strip of 24-LEDs above the controls acts as a tuner optimized for four, five, and six string tuners. Other features include a direct output with a front panel level control, a mute switch, an effects loop, dual SpeakON combo jacks, a fan with a silent switch mode, and a 9-volt power supply for up to 5 pedals. Altogether, the amp weighs 6 pounds.
The GR Bass ONE800 head is shipping now with a street price of $799.
