    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.

    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! [​IMG]

    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.

    Hi,

    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,

    BassCliff

    GK rocks! I'm loving my MBF800 and 212NEO.
