GK MB115 Question
I have an older (outside of warranty) GK MB115, that has suddenly gone belly-up.
When powered on, the LED switches to purple/pink and will not go blue.
When powering off the amp, it will go to blue before completely shutting down and you can hear a very brief blast of tone from the bass guitar?
Can anyone shed some light? Do I need to replace the power amp module?
The speaker could be shorted, also a possibility. firstname.lastname@example.org will have your best answer.
Thanks B-String. I'll pop him an email.
A very good local tech was able to trace the fault to the preamp board, but was unable to determine which specific component on the board was causing the issue. The cost of a replacement preamp board etc. was prohibitive, so I just had him convert the unit into a cabinet and was able to sell it for a reasonable price as a cab. With that money I bought TWO used Traynor combos that will probably last me forever. One thing I will say for GK is that their resale value is pretty decent LOL!
BTW, I also had the exact same issue with a GK MB200 head, however it was replaced under warranty being only a few weeks old. I sold the replacement MB200 head to buy the MB115 thinking the combo might be more reliable (not sure what I was smoking at the time...:rollno:).
Yeah, that's pretty much what I've determined. Cost prohibitive to get it repaired. I'll just figure out something else to do with the cabinet.
Half the cost for a repair, I'll just squeeze some coin and get something else this time...
