Tried it out side by side with a Markbass cmd102p and a Genz Benz Shuttle 600 2x10. Amazing lows with articulate mids and highs sum this wee beastie up well. The tweeter is hissy but adjustable and frankly the only issue I have. I am no fan of most neo cabs but this is an exception. The GB is very cool but is rear ported and I lose some definition on the low end with it and it is twice the price. The tube section of the GB is fine but I did not miss it one bit compared to the GK head. The Markbass head is great by itself but the speakers are blurry on the bottom and their tweet hisses too. The VPF and VLF controlls on the Mark are killer tools if used right. Yet again the Mark is twice as much. The Mark head is a bit easier to dial in my sound but after a few extra minutes with the GK I was in heaven with the tone, every bit as thick and rich as the Mark. Between me and my bass buds we cover the gambit in styles and all agree the GK is almost to good to be true. Loud enough by itself to hang with a heavy hitting drummer and two guitards :) At half the price and lightest in the class it's a no brainer (which fits me).

I had done a lot of research into replacing my Ashdown Mag 300 with something crisper and punchier that was still capable of dep resonant lows. Fortunately My replacement is the GK MB210.
This amp is amazing. Its tonal qualaties are second to non for an amp in this class (and a few more expensive options as well). You always know that your going to get a great tone with plenty of adjustment from Gallien Krueger but this little beauty exceeded all my expectations. As for the weight. GK you've saved my back.

If you buy this baby get it up on an adjustable tilting stand (Quicklock or Jammaster) and you'll be amazed at what it does for your sound.
Love it GK

This combo is light and powerful with all the bells and whistles to dial in the tone you want. There is no need to lug around heavy equipment believing its a must or else your sound will be compromised. This unit also have the latest circuitry and DI/Speakon jacks to connect to your speaker cabinets or PA system.

I have loved this amp for 22 months and have gigged with it at least 8 times. It held its own outside and in large venues. I always get comments about how great it sounds and people are amazed when I have them lift it.

Sadly, last night, during our third set at a gig, the amp started cutting out. Classic rock, moderate volumes... nothing abusive. First I blamed my wireless setup and changed the battery. Then I connected direct. Then I blamed my bass and switched to my back-up. Continued to cut in and out until it finally developed a very loud buzz that sounds like a broken speaker cone.

I guess at $27 a month it wasn't too bad but I truly expected it to last longer. I will be taking it in for repair but I will also start hauling a back-up amp to shows.

I picked up this amp about 2 months ago and have nothing but impressed with it. I've gigged with it a few times now and the tone (classic GK) and overall presence is fantastic. I did also purchase the 115MBE (matching 15" extension cab) to use at larger venues and I'm convinced that it's all I'll ever need - a complete 500w bass stack for under 70 lbs! The weight of this amp is truly impressive but the amp still feels sturdy. If you're wondering if it can keep up with a band, don't. It can. My only concern is that the grille is aluminum and if it takes a hit it will dent. I'll probably pick up a cover just for a little added protection. All in all, I'm very pleased with this purchase.

I purchased the G-K MB210 over two years ago (2012). As a church musician, I use it twice a week for both practice and as the sole bass generator in a large cathedral-shaped room.

Sound:
This amp provides a few options which can help me get further into the varied songs we play. At times, I'll need to bring in a deep warm organ-y feel for somber pieces. With a click of a button, the signature G-K growl can bring more chomp to keep things moving. Even popping and slapping has definition while still being controlled and clean.

Volume-wise I never go for want. This workhorse can provide the same oomph in a small practice room just as it can in the huge hall. Though all other instruments run through the room's sound system, my bass stands by itself and easily holds its own without pushing it even to half.

Portability:
As a ~35lb block, this amp is light when compared to its traditionally magnetized brotheren. I've read that neo-cabs miss some of the bottom-end heft. But when a guest bassist joined us for a few weeks, he never knew the G-K was neodymium driven. This amp balances portability with great sound. If neo is how that's done, I'll stick with it because I can leave the dolly at home without incurring a backache.

Note: The horn in this amp emits a high pitched buzz which is distracting. I leave it off and still great sound.

OK, what's the catch? You have an opportunity to buy a 500watt, twin-10/tweeter combo amp with a rugged non-carpet-covered exterior, great grill design, all packed into a 33lb package for easy toting..... and you have to question: What's the catch? I am here to tell you: THIS IS THE REAL DEAL!! I'll bet the prices go up on these guys soon. For under $600 shipped, you have EVERYTHING you'll ever need to play most gigs--and if you need something "more" than this, you are either deaf or need to tone down your volume. This is probably the greatest combo bass (and great keyboard) amp made, to date. You've got the punch and floor-shaking bass that twin 10s with 500 horsepower can produce, coupled with GK's fine reputation for building a quality product at a reasonable price. Plus this model offers an extension cabinet input if you are inclined to add more "bottom" via a 15" or a pair of 12" drivers.

There is no way you can go wrong purchasing this combo amp. It lacks nothing and the rugged construction is a pretty clear indicator that this thing will outlive me.
