Gallien Krueger Legacy 800
£500
Sheffield


Recommended Posts

This listing is for a Gallien Kruger Legacy 800 head, which is in pristine condition and excellent working order.  I'm the original owner, and the amp was purchased new from Andertons in November 2019.  All of the original stuff is included (I keep the boxes for _everything_ !):

 

- Power cable
- Footswitch
- Footswitch cable
- Original manual
- Original box

 

The head sounds really great, and I even took it into the recording studio with me in February 2020.  During the pandemic, I started to try out a number of different heads and ultimately decided that I really do prefer having a valve preamp.  I have so many amps, that this is just surplus to requirements at the moment (valve-wise I currently have two Mesa Strategy 888's, a Mesa WD-800 and a GK MB Fusion 500).

 

If you're near Sheffield you are free to drop by my place and try out the head.  Thanks!

Surprised this is still for sale. I love mine. The bump switch works well with barefaced 12 inch cabs. You can get a more subtle driven sound by backing the gain off, not talked about in the manual.

Damn that’s just outrageous 😂🤣

 

Bought each of them used... all-valve head, so I had to have a spare (plus you can master-slave them) ;)

Hiya would you take £450 for this, I can get a new one for £549.

Cheers

I'm not desperate to sell... if you can get a new 800 Watt model for £549, that sounds like a great deal.

I came here to take a peak at the GK, and now all I want is a Mesa 888! I've somehow never heard of them before.

Mesa stopped making them around 2018... had only been produced for ~5 years.  Later year models have a "pull gain knob to boost" feature, I have one of each.

 

Not cheap to re-valve... and the current valve crisis doesn't help either but I did manage to pick up some spares recently.

Yeah, looks like Polar has them on eBay for that price.  That's great deal for a new head!

So would you accept £450 for yours?

 

 

Thanks for your interest, but I'm still looking for something closer to £500 for this one. 

 

I have to double-check, but I'm pretty sure that my Legacy 800 Speak-on jacks accept the 4-pole cables (but obviously still only uses two of the poles).  The more recent Legacy heads can't accept anything but 2-pole---the 4-pole cables just don't fit in the jacks!  Anyway, I'm not sure if this makes a difference to anyone... might save someone from having to buy new cables though.

Hi, is it £500 posted?

 

Sure, I could probably do that but really depends on where the amp needs to go.  Would have to be UK only.
