GR Bass Amplification Introduces the ONE800 Bass Amplifier

A lightweight bass head that can dish out up to 800 watts.

Austin, TX (November 1, 2018) -- Sonata Marketing, Ltd. is excited to present the GR Bass ONE800 lightweight bass guitar amplifier, now available at $799.

For the first time in the USA, GR Bass gear is available to qualified retail dealers. GR Bass amplification is meticulously built in Italy, and has a detailed sonic audio soundstage. The complete GR Bass product line is designed to ensure that the sound of your bass is not altered or changed while playing through their amplifiers, speakers or combo amps. You get the pure sound of bass (woods, pickups, construction) through the amplifier. If you want to modify the sound of your bass, you have plenty of options with the 4-band EQ (both the Lo-Mid and Hi-Mid have three frequency selections), a Deep switch and a Bright switch. You are also provided a ‘Pure’ switch that allows you to bypass all tone controls for a ‘straight-wire-with-gain’ approach to obtaining sonic purity.

In addition to the robust EQ section, the GR Bass ONE800 includes a tuner (optimized for 4, 5 & 6-string bass), a direct output with front panel level control, headphone output with level control, front panel mute switch, rear panel effects send/return jacks, rear panel DI XLR with pre/post switch & GND lift switch, dual SpeakOn combo jacks (for either SpeakOn or 1⁄4” connectors), a fan with silent switch mode, a 9v power supply for up to 5 pedals and an amplifier power supply that runs on universal world-wide voltage. The cast chassis, 6 Lb. package can produce up to 800W RMS @ 4-Ohms.

The GR Bass product line includes amplifiers, speaker cabinets and combo amplifiers. These powerful, lightweight amps & speakers embody the stylish Italian design and attention to detail. All GR Bass products are easy to use, sound great and represent a terrific value. Customized graphics and colors on the amplifiers and speakers are also available by special order.

A maze of modulation and reverberations leads down many colorful tone vortices.

Deep clanging reverb tones. Unexpected reverb/modulation combinations.

Steep learning curve for a superficially simple pedal.


SolidGoldFX Ether


A lot of cruel fates can befall a gig. But unless you’re a complete pedal addict or live in high-gain-only realms, doing a gig with just a reverb- and tremolo-equipped amp is not one of them. Usually a nice splash of reverb makes the lamest tone pretty okay. Add a little tremolo on top and you have to work to not be at least a little funky, surfy, or spacy. You see, reverb and modulation go together like beans and rice. That truth, it seems, extends even to maximalist expressions of that formula—like the SolidGold FX Ether.
