Gallien-Krueger Fusion S Series Amps Now Available
Gallien-Krueger has expanded its amp offerings with the new Fusion S series of heads. The hybrid amps have a tube preamp matched with a Class D power section. They also include a new first for the company.
“These high powered heads incorporate three 12ax7 tubes in the preamp, including one dedicated to the overdrive channel, making it GK’s first-ever tube-driven overdrive channel,” they write. “Illuminated knobs add an extra level of sophistication and design by not only making it easier to dial in your tone on stage and but adding a beautiful stage presence as well. Each illuminated knob is also push activated, with additional voicing filters and tonal characteristics built-in.”
Similar to the recent Legacy Series, the Fusion S line has the same preamp and features built into three models varying in power: 450 watts, 800 watts, or 1,200 watts. Each features a four-band tube-driven EQ alongside the tube overdrive, which has Drive, Level, and Edge controls. Further tone shaping is offered with three voicing filters called Bump, Contour, and Presence. For connectivity, the series has a Balanced DI with pre and post EQ, an effects loop, an auxiliary input, and a headphone output. The impedance can be set with a load capacity selector with options for 2, 2.7, 4 and 8ohm cabinet configurations.
