Gary Moore’s Gallien-Krueger Series II 250ML Combo Amp

This amp was first mentioned by Gary in an interview he did with International Musician in November 1985.

They look like little practice amplifiers, but they are actually a lot more elaborate. They have their own stereo chorus built in, two channels, a very dirty one and a very clean one, and a compressor which is very nice on the clean channel. They are 50 watts per channel which is a lot bigger than they look — so I run them through Marshall cabinets and it really brings them to life. You get all the bass end coming out, because obviously with their own little dinky speakers you lose that.

According to the info posted on the auction page of one of these amps, Gary owned three 250MLs. He was photographed with one of them in 1990, but he likely didn’t use them to the extent described in the quote above at that point.
