    Price:
    $550
    Location:
    Missouri
    For Sale:
    A very excellent lightly used GK Fusion 550.
    Tons of power, via a large transformer;
    Great tone via a three tube preamp section, which has two separate channels with a footswitch...Via the two channels you can select between different input gain, master volume, and eq settings for different gain structures, clean vs dirty tones, solo vs regular volume, different eq/tone; all on the fly; the amp's stores both channel's settings and motorized knobs move to their two channel settings on their own: pretty cool!

    And! the bi-amp/horn management system for use with GK bi-amp ready cabs...this lets you set the horn level at the amp instead of the speaker, and also means the horns have their own dedicated power amp. This amp stays clean as you dial harmonic overdrive or grit into the woofers, this is a super cool feature feature as horns generally represent grit/overdrive in very ugly ways. This puts those tones where they do well; in the main paper coned woofer. Very cool feature.

    Original box, paperwork, power cord and foot switch for channel switching.

    Had a bit of noise in the tweeter attenuator pot at one time; this was serviced under warranty at the factory 02/2017 and been fine ever since

    $550 or, merely a dollar a watt!!!

    You can readily use input gain and master volume to make it sound great "used as a small amp" too :)

    Just want to remind everyone that these are ridiculously brilliant heads, full of fat tubey growl and they are built like tanks. I love mine. Super versatile, and reliable. Good luck Chef!
