    Pros
    • + Light weight, portable
    Cons
    • - Tone, noisy fan
    I use one in a band, volume wise it works but begins to break up with some basses. I found a used Fender Bassman 70 at GC and it’s a beast (and cheap, 70 bucks! But too heavy for me to lug around so it stays home. If you are ok with lugging around a heavier amp, do so but if weight
    is a big issue, then by all means the GK is fine. Also check out the Fender lightweight bass amps as well to compare. I don’t think the GK is the best tone, it’s a compromise IMO.

    Great sound, reasonable price, light weight practice amp that you can gig with, to a point.
    Got this as an upgrade to an underpowered Peavey 112 combo that just wasn't cutting it. It has a very good tone and does everything I need as a practice amp. I have gigged with this numerous times, since it does have a DI out to feed FOH, and this worked well when I used my Peavey G-bass. But, when I used my Schecter ATX C-4, it had a hard time handling the lows coming out of that bass and would start farting. Now, this may just be my unit, that I bought used, but the difference between the two basses was clear. I have since gotten a full 4x10 cab with a separate head for gigs and relegated this to practice duty. Having said that, since there is a chain out on this unit, adding a 112MBP unit would provide much more volume and would likely solve the farting issue. Haven't tried this, but likely will if I encounter a mid-sized gig that calls for a setup like that.
