    Having never played one Im curious about your opinions. Im looking for a new amp for rock, and my local store didnt have one in stock, but theres another one in the city that does and Im wondering whether its worth the trip to check it out. I could probably afford the 1001rbII or 800rb, not the 2001 at this stage. Thanks

    I used a GK 800RB several years ago. It had a very clean modern, antiseptic tone and worked well in the heavy metal band that I played in.
    Unfortunately, the thing preferred the company of the repair shop people, it was constantly breaking down.
    I cannot speak to their reliability now but I imagine they still have the clean, modern, antiseptic tone
  4. i've got a 1001rb-II. it is awesome. you should definetly check it out. it's more than worth your time.
