Gallien-Krueger Legacy 500
500-W Bass Head with a Class D Power Amp, Analog Preamp and Switchable Overdrive
Built upon 50 years of design and innovation, the 2019 Legacy Series from Gallien-Krueger captures the signature growl, clarity, and power of its predecessors with modern touches for greater legacy sound. From its introduction in 1980, the original 800RB led Solid State bass amplification with features well ahead of its time—from clean, clear biting tones to saturated overdrive. Now, the Legacy Series delivers these key features in a clean, modern aesthetic all its own.
The unique interconnection system in each head eliminates problems caused by constant vibration and temperature extremes overtime, providing improved performance and reliability. Rather than cables with standard tin connectors, circuitboards with gold plated connectors are used to deliver pure, reliable sound. Additional features include GK's classic 4 band EQ, Overdrive complete with tone shaping, additional voicing filters such as "Bump", "Contour", and "Presence", Balanced DI with Pre and Post EQ, an Effects Loop, Aux and Headphone connections, and Load capacity selection for optimum power into 2, 2.7, 4 and 8 ohm cabinet configurations. Available in 500, 800, and 1200 watt class D models, the Legacy Series brings home classic sound from stages to living rooms and everything in between.
