    Hi I'm going to buy one of this combos.:help:

    The problem is that in my country there is no possibility to check that new SWR WorkingPro 2X10C.
    I'v already checked Gallien Krueger 400RB IV (2x10") and it sounds...great!! :hyper:.
    Maybe you can advise me what to choose?

    I'm playing both.. bass guitar(5str.) and double bass.
    Various music ,mainly: jazz,funk,fusion,rock..and folk.

    Thanks

    Love the GK. Not a huge fan of the current SWR workingman's stuff. Just doesn't sound as sweet to my ears.

    I tried both. I like the GK, but I love the 2-10C, from the NEW workingpro series, it's so much better than the workingman's series. I'm not sure about a 2-10C with a 5 string though. At high volumes, it seems to struggle just a bit with low notes. Although it's probably the same for the GK. At medium and medium high volumes, the 2-10C is so nice, with or without the sub enhancer. To me the GK 2-10 is more punchy, mid, and less defined, but perhaps sounds just a bit louder. Anyway, that's my two cents.

    Ahhh, ok, all bets are off then. While I do still like the GK stuff quite a bit, I haven't checked one of those out yet, so I guess I can't comment.

    One more option:

    Is it a better choice insted of SWR or Gallien Krueger?
    Thanks for help.

    I haven't tried the new 400 rb, but I've owned the 1001 for three years and the MB 150 for 10 years, so I'm a big fan. I subbed on "Menopause the Musical" for it's LA run and the amp there was a Workingman's 12. I hated it. Also: It sounds like you answered your own question in your post...

    Greetings!
    Sorry didn't mean to go off topic.
    I'm watching with interest as I've been considering getting a combo for smaller venues...

    +1 on the Eden combo.....awesome. But maybe a few more $$ than your willing to pay since you've mentioned GK and SWR.
    I like GK stuff and had an old 400RB -210 combo. Great at low to mid volumes, lost alot of lows at high volumes.
    Never played SWR, no comment.

    YMMV.
