[Musikmesse] Matrix GM50
Matrix Guitar Amplification announce the release of the GM50 a power amp module.
Designed to be installed in a cab and weighing less than 2.5 kg, the GM50 is a Class AB amp that measures 312mm x 160mm x 65mm and outputs 400 Watts rms at 4 Ω, 250 at 8 Ω , or 120 at 16 Ω, which is designed to provide clean headroom to make it comparable in output to a 50-watt tube amp (at 16 Ω).
The front of the amp has a combination Neutrik XLR & ¼" jack input along with the power input, power switch and gain knob. The GM50 will connect to your speakers, using the two wires coming from the rear of the amp, without the need to select impedance and accepts 4 ohms and above, even non standard ratings.
Guitarists can use the GM50 to power 1x12, 2x12 or even a 4x12 cab for a simple setup or go for more complex ones such as using a valve preamp to power a W/D/W system with the GM50 providing power in each of your cabs.
Pricing & Availability:
Priced at $306 (plus taxes and shipping), the GM50s will be ready for shipping from April 2012.
