Compare for me GK vs. Bmax and/or RBI sound

    Hey Y'all,

    I'm just curious (a dangerous habit that often costs me money) about how the "GK sound" compares to a BBE Bmax (ss) and/or Sansamp RBI. I've got both the Bmax & RBI right now so I know how they sound. How would you compare the GK sound to those?

    The possible thing that would cost me is my idea that I could forego the pre/power setup (I just settled on the Bmax) and use a GK (700 or 1001) for the bulk of my gigs that only require 1 or 2 1x12 cabs. Then on outdoor gigs without PA I could run it into a power amp to drive more cabs (another 2 1x12s). That would reduce the size & weight of what I carry around regularly (currently a 5 sp rack with pre, power and wireless).

    TIA
