    im thinking of getting a berg nv610 cab for a long time now and may pull the trigger real soon as i have a new band in the works. now head wise im still at a loss. i was first considering a gk 1001rb-II head but after further thought i don't know if i really want it because i like a nice warm tone, and from what i read gk has a more clean sound. now i've been considering the ashdown evo 500 II head. i hear ashdown can get a nice warm sound and is more versitile. has anyone played the ashdown through a nv610 or even owns one?

    I played an Eden traveler 550 thru one and I suggest you consider the Eden too. It amazes me how" tubey" a sound you can get from there heads if you dial it in.

    by the way i got a sansamp bddi recently so if i did still decide on the gk would that help in making the sound more warmer?

    I am currently playing an Ashdown EVO-II through a 215. The Ashdown sounds great; it is very versitle and pretty tubey, though I want to get back into an all tube head soon. For a hybrid it is pretty warm though.

    also what about ampeg. i tend to play rock music and i mainly play with a pick because the style of music im into. would ampeg be more suitable? and has anyone tried the new pro series amps like the svt2 or svt4 with the nv610?

    i have the 700rbII, the less powerful version of the 1001. its not so much warm, its so aggressive though. serious attack, volume and growl.

    I love it

    well lately ive been leaning towards a warmer tone and have been putting much more consideration in the ashdown or the ampeg.

    I have found the Sansamp to warm up the sound when the amp is set flat. My GK can do everything a Sansamp does and more.

    Will it warm up the sound? Yes. But I've found nearly the same warmth by using my GK head without the Sansamp.

    In-Series Equalizers are underrated. They can do so much very easily.
