Gallien-Krueger guitar amps

Webmaestro's recent thread got me thinking.

Does ANYONE here even remember the killer tones from a G-K 250ML/RL?
Does anyone here (besides me) still play through a GK guitar amp or pre-amp?

I CAN'T be the only one. right??

Re: Gallien-Krueger guitar amps

I still have mine that i bought in the early 90s . Funny, it has been sitting for years and just recently I dug it out and put it in my son's room as I've started teaching him guitar and wanted to give him something to play through. Some knobs are broken off etc, but it's still kicking.

Wow. I never knew GK made guitar amps! That looks sorta like a clean-sounding jazz or acoustic guitar-type amp. Solid state, I presume?

Dude, GK used to make some KILLER guitar amps!! In the late 80's and early 90's they were everywhere. GK quit making them somewhere around '96.

Yeah, they're SS but, by far, the best sounding SS amps ever. Lots of bands used them. Most notable was Iron Maiden.

The reason I brought this topic up is that I'm searching for another 2100sel. I cooked mine a few years ago. I still have the 2000cpl in the rack, but the 2100sel is my all time favorite. I'm also looking for another GK 412 cab.

Re: Gallien-Krueger guitar amps

I had a 250ML for years. I never really used it as much as it deserved, figured I would let it go to somebody who would; I traded it in last year. Great sounding little amp, though. Richie Sambora used one, David Gilmour used one...
