Gallien-Krueger Legacy 500, 500 Watt Bass Amplifier Head

The 2019 Legacy amplifiers are the result of 50 years of research and experience, including a wealth of new innovations from this trusted name in bass amplification. The company founder, Bob Gallien remains at the helm of the company, and is still working in the lab daily, as he did in the beginning, to create the best sounding, most versatile, and reliable professional bass gear available. Because the Legacy Series shares the same designer as the 800RB, it shares the same DNA and the same level of innovation, with a more evolved feature set and construction concept. These amplifiers debuted at the 2019 NAMM show in California.

When the 800RB was introduced in 1980, it quickly gained a reputation which confirmed Gallien Krueger as one of the key names in bass amplification. With its signature growl, clarity, power, and features that were ahead of its time. The new Legacy Series of heads captures that same understated aesthetic while adding something unique and in line with modern bass players requirements. From clean, clear, biting tones, to saturated overdrive, the Legacy series has it all. Coming in 500, 800, and 1200-watt class D models, The light and compact format Legacy Heads are ready for the biggest stages, the smallest living rooms, and everything in between.

To improve performance and reliability, the Legacy Series uses a unique interconnection system that eliminates problems that can develop over time from constant vibration and the temperature extremes that your gear can be subjected to with heavy use and constant transportation. Using circuit boards with gold plated connectors, rather than cables with standard tin connectors, this type of construction delivers a more pure, reliable sound. 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. Load capacity selection allows you to switch the Ohm rating on the speaker output to suit your speaker selection. This delivers optimum power into 2, 2.7, 4 and 8ohm cabinet configurations, these heads will perform to the maximum with the speaker selection you already own, and can be switched to suit a venue’s in house system or a rehearsal room set up.
