Gallien Krueger MB800, footswitch & bag *£300* price drop
£350
Guildford

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Great amp in excellent condition for only £300. Incredibly powerful, rich and punchy sound that is in total contrast to its size and weight.  Works really well with my TKS cabs (also for sale separately) for a powerful, lightweight rig. 

Mainly used for rehearsals and practice at home (the footswitch is still in its bag unused!).  

Discussed extensively here:

Any questions please ask. Collection from near Guildford preferred, but can post if needed.   

Thanks

Stu

      Hi there
      Have decided to sell me Bass amp and go for something smaller. It truly is the best bass head I've used but I don't play nearly as much as I did when I got it and not the size of venues either. The clean channel is superb. Gives you a nice clean tone, you can go from fat to sharp and anywhere in between. You can also pull on the treble and bass knobs and they pop out. This allows you to switch the frequency of the knob and get a different sound. Go over to the drive channel and things get interesting. This channel is active past the midway of the Treble, middle and bass knobs (There's a little indent you feel when turning them to let you know when you hit the active part). This means you can boost them past the natural register and get a bunch more tones. You also have the push/pull knobs on the treble and bass like channel 1. There's also a mid frequency knob to allow you to tailor exactly what frequency you want to alter. There's a gain for the amount of overdrive you want which can get crazy if you go to 10. With the gain knob there's a blend where you can balance how much of the clean signal gets mixed with the overdriven one so you don't lose any low end if you worry about that. Personally having the blend at 10 I think is the best and I think it sounds great in the mix. The cab is punchy with lots of bass and treble on tap for when you want it.
      I've had it serviced just before lockdown and also put in a full re-valve. So this amp has had a full set (Preamp and power valves) of JJ's. It sounds amazing and fresh! It's had maybe a couple of hours use since then. The head comes with both a "Hot Covers" padded cover for the head and a "Matt Snowball" flight case while the can has a Hot covers padded cover. You'll see the flight case is sprayed and has a tour plaque from "Bombay Bicycle Club". This was because I bought the head and case from them. Ed and the guys were selling some gear when they went on hiatus a couple of years ago to do solo and side projects. There's also a Boss pedal included for switching channels. 
      This head really does it all. The output ohm of the head can be switched so if you have an 8, 4 or 2 ohm cab you can just switch the head to match and get the full output. There's a cracking DI where you can go pre or post with it and in has it's own volume control. There's an output for a tuner and an effects loop. The best bit is this amp is self biasing. This means every time you turn it on it checks the 6 output valves to make sure they're working. If there's any issues it will show you and tell you which valve is at fault. You can also set the bias on the fly so inbetween songs you could just decide to run the head hotter getting a breakup at a lower volume or earlier. Just press the up or down button on the bias control and it's done. The self bias also means if a valve fails it will compensate and run at a lower volume so you can get through the gig. Just pop the volume up to match what it was and you can carry on. You can change the valves yourself without having to take it to a tech to bias. So if you have spares at a gig, just change them there and then!
      The head is in great condition. It's been well looked after by me and by Bombay Bicycle Club. I've owned the cab from new and that is also in fantastic condition. No rips or nick in either of them.
      Pics are of the actual head and cab for sale. There's ones from when I originally was going to sell just the head but I've taken more today with the cab. I'll try and get better ones.

      Recently acquired BR800 multi-track recorder in excellent condition, using it as a headphone amp as it has effects and drums onboard.  
      It also acts as a computer interface so can get access to the effects I have on my DAW too and this is part of the reason for me selling it, I predominantly use the Line6 effects I have in garageband so will be looking to downgrade to a basic audio interface.
      The unit comes with original packaging and manual and power cable and usb cable.
      Postage will be fully insured and cost £10.
      BOSS continues its top-selling tradition of portable, affordable multi-trackers with the new BR-800 — a battery-powered studio to go. The sleek new design is made possible by touch-sensor switches and SD-card recording media. Up to four tracks can be recorded simultaneously with eight tracks of simultaneous playback plus an additional stereo track dedicated to the built-in rhythm generator. The BR-800’s powerful onboard effects processor includes GT-10/10B effects, VE-20 vocal effects and harmonies, and COSM-based acoustic-guitar body modeling. EZ Recording feature interactively guides through the recording process. A stereo microphone is also built into the BR-800 for instant “Song Sketch” recording. No matter where you roam, you’ll never miss a moment of musical inspiration with the BR-800.
      The BR800 Features:
      4-track simultaneous recording, 8-track simultaneous playback plus dedicated stereo rhythm track playback
      EZ Recording interactively guides through the recording process
      Powerful guitar, bass, and vocal effects derived from BOSS’s flagship processors
      Song Sketch recording for quick stereo capture in WAV format
      Built-in advanced drum machine with editor software
      Functions as a USB audio interface and DAW control surface
      Built-in stereo condenser microphone for instant recording
      Sleek new interface based on touch sensors

      Hi all,
      My Bassman 100T is now my main amp and this is too good to have just as a backup. 
      Bought this year and includes footswitch plus original packaging. Polar seem to be the only UK stockists and this is £832 including delivery, so this is a chance to get one at a decent discount.
      It's in excellent condition, with only light home use and one band rehearsal. 
      4 band EQ with voicing and contour controls make this a really versatile piece of kit. The tube overdrive is pretty special too.
      I'll consider trades with appropriate cash adjustment for jazz basses (4 string, passive, 60s spacing) or a cheaper amp for backup use.
      Trials in Bristol most welcome and can discuss shipping.
