Morgan MP200

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of stumbling upon something new and fantastic on the internet. It’s an even greater feeling when you find out the thing you just found is barely known by anyone and may be one of the best kept bass amp secrets out there. Joe Morgan appears to run a possibly one man operation in California and builds extremely simple and sexy tube amps and cabs for both bass and guitar. While offering a list of guitar amps, there’s actually only one bass amp on the menu: the MP200. I’m not 100% sure what the MP stands for but the 200 is rather clear with it’s 3 x 12AX7s in the preamp section and quad of KT88s. Sonically, the amp can hit just about every desirable bass tone from Chris Squire’s punchy pick sound, to Marcus’s fat bright slap tone, to insane dub fatness. It even sounds awesome overdriven! Weighing in at 42 lbs. it’s quite a contender against some of the other higher powered tube heads out there, and swap the KT88s for KT120s and suddenly you’ve got a 300 watt monster. But the coolest by far is the light up M logo and the assortment of insane colors and textures to choose from! Be sure to check them out at Morganamps.com and you can count on me having one of these in the near future….COUNT ON IT!
