Harley Benton has returned with yet another affordable amplifier offering, announcing the GPA-100 a pedal-sized power amp priced at just $78.
The GPA-100 is described by the brand as a “power-amp-in-a-pedal” and its chassis is certainly reminiscent of your typified stomper. This solid-state power amp packs class D technology and delivers either 100 watts at 8 ohms, or 190 watts at 4 ohms.
It also gives you some useful controls for dialling in your signal. The largest dial is a master volume positioned at the bottom of the device. At the top is your EQ section with bass, mid and treble knobs. Also in the top section are signal and peak LED indicators to ensure your signal is being fed through properly.
As for sockets, the GPA-100 keeps things minimal with just a single instrument input and an output jack. According to Harley Benton, the GPA-100 is voiced to connect to “any preamp, pedal or effect device”. Weighing in at just 800g, this lightweight amp could be a useful backup to have in the gig bag should your amplifier suddenly conk out in the middle of a session.
Harley Benton also recently unveiled the Mighty-15TH, a budget-friendly tube amplifier equipped with two 12AX7 preamp tubes and two EL84 power tubes.
The GPA-100 is available now for $78, learn more at thomann.de
