The Legacy Series, true to name, is a celebration of 50 years of quality amplifiers from Gallien-Krueger. Still headed up by Bob Gallien, the company continues to innovate and create excellent sounding amps. Featuring growling bass sound, easy-to-use controls, and Legacy Series looks, this bass amp is for the expert player who wants powerful, time-tested sound.

Growling Bass Sound
For the best bass sound possible, the Legacy Series sports a unique interconnection system that avoids issues that arise over time from continuous vibration and excessive temperatures. It uses gold plated circuit board connectors, rather than cables with tin connectors. This type of construction averts sonic disaster and keeps your amp sound fresh. You'll be enamored with the clear, powerful, low-end sound from this Class D amplifier.

Easy-to-Use Controls
To shape your sound, Gallien-Krueger assured you have everything you need with this amp—and nothing you don't. There's a classic GK four-band EQ, which includes a high and low mid frequency. It has an overdrive channel, with drive and level knobs, for when you really want to crank it up. There's also additional tone shaping, with bump, contour, and presence switches. Completing this comprehensive amp, in the rear you'll find a balanced DI with pre and post EQ, an effects loop, aux input, and headphone connections.

Legacy Series Looks
Harkening back to 1980, Gallien-Krueger based the design of this series off of their very successful 800RB solid state bass amp. The cool, no-frills design of this amp looks sleek and can fit atop almost any cabinet. The face sports a classic design with black knobs and metallic switches, as well as two metal bars on either side to protect those components.
