GK MB200 cab problem
I'm new to talkbass, I'm a guitarist & my husband is the bassist.
He just got a GK MB200 head, and we've tried it through everything we have in the house: Yorkville 1-12 monitors, old EV 1-12 monitors, JBL Eons (1-15), all 8 ohm.
With single speakers, we got a good sound at very low volumes, call GK & talked gain structure (he plays a Fender P bass, so no active pups). Regardless of volume on bass or gain on the MB200, good sound at low volume, but anything resembling a realistic playing volume was rattling & fart-y.
I thought it might have been some string rattle, but he didn't have any problem at all through his SWR combo.
The best result was daisy chaining the 2 old EV monitors so they were 4 ohms, and with the bass volume backed off a bit, it was right at the edge of do-able stage volume in our 3 piece pop/rock trio. (Not terribly loud stage volumes).
From what I've read here on the forum, it sounds like a lot of you go with something like a Gallien-Krueger Neo 112-II.
For a decent stage volume are we looking at 2 monitors or cabs? We were hoping for a kick back scenario.
We're really hoping this unit works for us, but it'll have to be a bit louder.
