  1. Which one?
     
  2. anyone?
     
  3. Well, Ive played a few Ashdowns and really liked the sound. When I replaced my Fender Bassman 60 when it up and died, I almost bought an Ashdown Electric Blue with the 1x12. 2x10s should sound even nicer. I've played a few GKs, but, for some reason they never caught my ear. My vote would be for the Ashdown.

    Good luck.

    Gallien's are way better. Dont own one but I've played em. I bet they're better.

    Love the name 2-mny-drummers.

    2 true.
     
  6. Thanks for all the posts, and irs true...there are just too many drummers out there, and guitarists are dime a dozen, but us bassists are one-of-a-kind!

    I think the Ashdown would blow away the GK.

    I prefer the tone of the Ashdown over GK, plus with 2-10" speakers you have a better chance of being heard over the single speaker in the GK.

    Peace

  8. If i get the ashdown, then later i can buy the ashdown 15" cab and then have a stack...cool...there is nothing better than a color coordinated stack...:D

    200 watt 1x12 combo with jack for an external 8 ohm cabinet.

    the EB doesn't have an output for a second cabinet

    Forget it, didn't see what model it was. Ashdown all the way even though is they had the same power, I would take the GK. Definitly the GK
     
  15. i don't want the 15" one, I want the two 10" one
