Sculpt your tone to perfection with Gallien-Krueger's classic 4-band EQ. Quickly audition versatile voicing filters — Bump, Contour, and Presence — to zero in fast on the perfect sound for any music genre. Kick in saturation with onboard Overdrive, and dial in Edge tone-shaping to taste. Whether you're playing prog metal or country, the GK Legacy 800 fits the bill.

All the right connections

On the Legacy 800's rear-panel Patch Bay, use the effects loop Send and Return to connect your favorite compressor or other outboard gear. Landed an arena gig? Use the balanced DI output to send a post-EQ signal to the PA. In the studio, switch the DI to pre-EQ and connect directly to the recording console. From coffeehouse gigs to stadiums, the Gallien-Krueger Legacy 800 has you covered with flexible load capacity cabinet impedance switching that delivers optimum power into 2-, 2.7-, 4-, and 8-ohm loads. Practicing quietly at home? The GK Legacy 800 also features Aux input and Headphone jacks.

Gig-ready and tour-tough

To improve performance and reliability, GK's Legacy Series uses an innovative interconnection system that eliminates issues that can develop over time due to the frequent vibration and temperature extremes that gear is subjected to with demanding professional use. Legacy Series circuit boards use gold-plated connections instead of standard cables with tin connectors. This type of robust construction delivers a purer sound in addition to the enhanced reliability to withstand years of heavy touring.
