Also have a MB500 as a backup amp in case of failure at a gig
You need a 1001RBII.
Anyone got any experience with the GK 400rb iv 210 combo?
rolandm, that behavior along with the unique EQ is how Bob Gallien started GMT in his garage back in the late 1960's that later was renamed G-K. He is an engineer, no bean counter oversees him or his ideas .
Thanks for the responses guys. I was wondering if it was just me. When I tried the Backline in the store a number of years ago, it was between it, an Ampeg PF350 and a PF500. The Backline just seemed to be much more powerful to me at the time, but I chalked it up to just my ears. Nice to know the engineering behind it.
Having read Fdeck's PDF on the BL600 helped tremendously as well, and I definitely stopped feeling that my BL600 was a second-class amp after reading about it.
Hope alternative cabs are allowed.
Also, B-String, I love those Pau Ferro boards on those Jazz Vs. Say what you want about tone woods, that board makes a difference to my ear on that bass.
Yes . I really enjoy how versatile it is as well. Wish I could talk myself out of the rounds as they are so hard on the frets, but can't quite do it.
I'm def in!! Monster stack rraaaawwwrrrr!
Gawd I love GK stuff. It's very versatile to my ears. I'm extremely happy I took a second glance at the 1001rb and played it while amp shopping in a music store almost a year ago now. Nothing but good has come from my GK gear. It has bumped my playing up to a whole new level since because I just love to hear what my bass sounds like through my 1001 and neo 410.
I just realized that, after finishing my DIY 210, I never posted a picture of my rig. Here ya go!
Big pile of GK:
Anyone jealous of Chef yet? Anyone? I mean, beside me?
Here's my usual rig. (I need a better picture.)
800RB, Neo 410, Carvin LB76.
EDIT: I realize I've posted this picture before. I don't think I have a club member number yet.
Thank you for your indulgence,
GK rocks! I'm loving my MBF800 and 212NEO.
