Nothing to say that hadn’t been said about the legendary quality, tone, and durability of these amps. They are a backline staple, and have been for 30 years because they DO sound that damn good. This was my rehearsal studio amp for the last 2 years, never acted up or failed to deliver great tone. Best as I can tell, this is a later 90’s model, only issues are two missing knob caps, and a few faint scratches. I have a Fusion 800 for gigging around town, or supplied backline, so this one has been waiting for something to do. Here’s your gig amp for the next 25 years!

    $450 USD shipped Canada / US 48.

    Almost every single gig I’ve done over the last 20 years has been through my 800RB.

    There’s something about these 800RB’s and 400RB’s from the 80’s & 90’s that I haven’t been able to get out of the newer GK amps, including the 700/1001/2001 amps. From what I’ve read, I’ve come to believe that this distinction is from the power amp design. It’s got a big, beefy transformer. You could club a frost-giant to death with that transformer.

    I just sold mine, since my 400rb covers my wattage needs now — but these amps are definitely in the running for the greatest solid state amps ever.

    I wrote to GK right after reading this. They sent me a couple of free knob caps. Received them in 4 days. Thanks, GK!
