Ashdown and GK rig combo?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by anthowl, Oct 3, 2009.

  1. thinking of swapping out the Ashdown 410 cab that i got with my
    ABM EVOIII rig to something with a tighter and more focussed low end.
    also i'm a kinda small chap so while on this i figured i'd try and go more mobile.

    i tried a GK neo 410 today in store.
    i know GK has a reputation for very clean and often bright sounds. this i liked. it gave the tube in the Ashdown a really nice sizzle but kept warm and i found i was able to turn up the bass nob on my amp more than i usually do and keep things sounding tight.

    so, it's ligter, sounds good and has casters on it.
    the question is, do i swap it out or to i attempt to put damping in my Ashdown cab and add casters to it?

    I just got a couple GK Neo cabs - kind of a blind experiment. So far, they're really decent. Haven't had them long enough to really love or hate them - but they are definitely not junk.

    I don't see "bright" as a negative. Expecially when the cab has a pad for the tweeter and the amp has a treble knob.

    If a cabinet is not "clean," it probably means a blown speaker. So, in my book, clean is good too.
  3. yeah, this is true. the tweeter knob was another selling point as the Ashdown cab only has an 'Off/High/Low' switch.
