Gk goldline 500? Any love for these?
I picked up one of these yesterday at smash. Got it for a great deal. I have never played a gk before this and i am really digging the sound. I cant seem to find very much info about them except that they were for a time a gc exclusive and that there were some reliability issues with the cabs. Does anyone out there have or used to have one of these? What can you guys tell me about them? The overdrive seems rather useless but i have yet to find a ss bass head that has any kind of a useful od. It really looks like somebody could figure that out. I mean just build a boss pedal into the preamp and we would be better off than most built in od for ss bass amps. But back to the point. Is this thing reliable? Is there anything i should watch out for? What kind of footswitch does it use? What is "flat" for the eq, 12oclock or 7oclock? What does the "boost" and the "master b" do differently than the gain and the "master a"? In a way i have nothing invested as i traded in old, unused gear, some at a profit and some at a loss but almost equalling out.
I only play bass some of the time, but when I do I make sure to have a good time.
