BHP GK250ML

KEEP CALM, STAY HOME, PLAY GUITAR!

BHP GK250ML is based on the Gallien Krueger 250ML. This strange little beast from the 80's is an all solid state stereo design featuring 2 x 6.5" speakers that effectively function like laser beams to directionally blast 100w of solid state power into your face! The real amazing thing, is that this little amp became a secret weapon for many of the 80's top players! Iron Maiden (Seventh Son) and Rush (Power Windows) have entire albums with the guitar tones almost entirely the 250. Even Nuno Bettencourt used the 250 for solo tones on Extreme's 3 Sides album. The amp features built in chorus and compression buttons (no fine tuning controls), that I attempted to recreate with the Kemper insert plugins. The amp has 6 knobs, 2 buttons, and 4 channels, ranging from super super clean, to "Rockman" style 80's DI tones, to pretty convincing and crushing distorted tones. I absolutely love Alex Lifeson's tones on Power Windows. He stacked on massive reverb, chorus' and delays. I wish the Kemper had more FX slots, but I think I created some pretty nice Lifeson presets here. The Maiden tones came out very close. It's a VERY retro kind of tone. It would be right at home in some modern 'Synth-Wave' style music. At raging volume, the amp is piercing and painful, thanks to it's 6.5" speakers. But, when you plug it into a stereo 2x12, or a 4x12, it blossoms and comes alive. Although, it's still a painful session because this doesn't bypass those internal laser speakers! I tried ALL kids of different mic'ing techniques to capture some of this amps tone mojo. I hope you like it. It was very interesting to work on, and is DEFINITELY a useful and fun pack to have in your arsenal.
