Good choice for aspiring bass players thanks to strong power amp and versatile pre-amp section and wide range (but not comprehensive) set of input/outputs.

I use the GK MB 500 to drive an 8 Ohm GK CX 115 cabinet. The pair works flawlessly and provides plenty of power and a wide range of sound settings. Ideal pair for an aspiring bass player in an electric band setting.

The MB 500 is a solid state amplifier in both pre-amp and power amp sections. The 4 channel EQ section is well designed and works well for sound shaping and adaptation to room acoustics. Furthermore, the contour dial is a real plus: once the EQ has been adapted to the room/stage acoustics, the contour dial is the best means of varying sound shapes between different musical styles. This is a real advantage in life settings: the bass player can concentrate on a single knob instead of fiddling around with all 4 EQ knobs.

A foot switch is included in the amp package. In a practical setting, you?ll use it to activate/deactivate the boost ?growl? effect and volume (master-b) pre-set during the sound check. The boost section is versatile: you can use it either to play clean at higher volumes (bass soloing) or to add both growl and volume ? useful for bassists of cover bands playing modern clean pop tunes and tube-amp growling 70?ies hard-rock in the same set.

Pros:
? flexibility of sound shaping thanks to effective 4-band EQ and additional contour
? foot switch for boost and ?growl? effect
? two speaker outs (no need to daisy chain cabinets)
? light weight

Cons:
? AUX/line-in missing
? speaker(s) must be disconnected to use headphone
? printed manual missing a page with recommended setting for different musical styles ? PDF download can be found on GK web pages (https://static1.squarespace.com/static/52d881e0e4b093afad1a2ae2/t/54a30912e4b04dcb56cd50eb/1419970834206/MB500-manual.pdf)

I bought this as part of a downsizing exercise. I am really impressed by the tonal range and power output of the amplifier. the EQ section is extremely flexible and you only need small adjustments to get your tone. I've yet to get the Master Volume above half-way when coupled with a Barefaced Super Midget, and that combination is the most portable set-up I've ever had. First class.
