    So i never thought I'd own a gallien krueger. but i do now and i'm quite pleased with the little guy :D last practice my trusty peavey megabass was starting to sound a bit fuzzy as it does from time to time. So off to the pawnshop i went looking for something different and have seen the 400rb sitting there for a bit. Talked them down to 100$ and took it home with me. A few twists on the knobs and wow!!! What a cool little amp i should have picked it up months ago lol 20170108_112548.
    Seems to get along nicely with my single jbl d140. And new knobs and caps already on the way:thumbsup:

    congrats! they are pretty nice - we used to play at a rehearsal studio that supplied backlines, and that's what they had for the bass. the whole band liked the way it sounded.

    Even I would have a problem passing up a working 400rb at $100!

    Excellent buy on outstanding amp - congratulations!
     
  7. Great amps. Still use mine when the mood hits. It never disappoints.
     
  8. Score a second D140 cab and see it wake up.
    They deliver more than you expect.

    I had a chance to play my (1991) 400RB through an old Ampeg 8 x 10 cabinet at rehearsal Saturday night. Now I'm dying to get one of those cabinets. Wow. It was great. I'd probably buy another 400 for $100 if I saw one in a pawnshop. Just for a backup.

    Local I see 400rb heads all the time for
    150/200 bucks at pawn shops as well

    Maybe I should stop passing them up too

    I paid $60 for my 400RBIII.....zero issues.

    Run it thru a pair of EV TL606 with EV 15L's.

    Very nice indeed. Great buy for sure. The knobs are available on GK's website.
