    Thank's for all your answer.
    I'm living in Sweden (way up north) and unfortunately neither Epifani nor Acme is available here, but Gallien-Krueger Backline 112 is.Do you think it will handle a five string?

    i found the backlines thin and harsh sounding at moderate volumes... not your typical GK gear. :(

    Nä.
    But you could try to find that "real GK" combo, the MB150.
    Costs a lot more, I expect, but is light and nice sounding. Not really sure about B-string capability...

    How far north do you live? Or in Real Swedish:
    vars bo du?

    I've tested MB150 but it's to thinsounding for my fivestring.
    Do you know anything about
    the German Tech Soundsystems,very lightveight but deepsounding as I've read.
    are they avaliable in Sweden?
     
  11. Ingemar, I'll join this thread since it seems longer lived than your other one.

    It was mentioned in another thread that a guy from the UK ordered Acme cabs directly and even with the additional shipping, the price was reasonable. And since they are rare over there, you could probably sell it easily if you didn't like it.

    OTOH, there are some alternatives being built in Europe. I've read lots of praise in this forum for Glockenklang.

    Hey, that's way down south!!!:D
    I think you are quite right about Tech,low weight, large cabs, sounds nice (NB choice of words from the north), though I didn't know of any Swedish rep:confused:
    Glockenklang is also very good, and hard to find in Sweden, as is Hevos, and a few other great cabs.
    Acme is not represented anywhere, except in US and Australia...but fairly cheap to import directly from Andy.
