Gem reviews

Mack Gem 2G guitar amp features:

Mack Gem 2G as seen on Premier Guitar

  • Enhanced overdrive and distortion.
  • Even more clean headroom than the original Gem.
  • Foot-switchable gain stages: 'Hot' and 'Melt - 2 channels!
  • Like all Mack amps, the Gem 2G is hand made in Toronto... not overseas!

What's The Big Deal With The Mack Gem 2G?

Boutique tone, hand made quality and real flexibility... all for only $449!

  • Unlike most low power amps, the 2G has LOTS of beautiful, clean headroom.
  • 'Hot' has more clean headroom, but retains its gorgeous crunch when turned up.
  • 'Melt' has saturated distortion perfect for solos - just stomp on the footswitch.

Of course, like the original Gem, the 2G can be switched from 4 watts to 0.4 watts without changing its tone.  Perfect for bedroom playing or anytime you don't want to be loud... YES, FOUR GEM-2G-WATTS ARE LOUD!
