    Hi, here I've always recived very good suggestion, so I try again:
    I have around 1000 Eur to spend in apli, and I like someting well-rounded for little-medium gig, for medium gig, for practice and to play with the band in the basement/garage.

    I've tought to:

    Warvick: W115 400w (8 Om) + W211 400w (8) + prophet 5.1 500w (4 Om) = 1100 Eur

    Gallien Krueger 210 BLX 200w (8) + 115 BLX 150w (8) + 400 RB 280w (4 Om o 180w > 8 Om) = 950 Eur.

    otherwise last week in a gig I've played trought a Trace Elliot 715x combo 500w that played fantastic and here cost about 975 Eur.

    I've played the stuff above (not in the these configuration), and the sound was goood, I live in Europe, U have any suggestion about, boys??
    thanx a lot,

    What a beast, huge rig :eek:
    compliments man.
    I think it's a little overpriced for my $$$, also used, but I love trace elliot sound!

    I live in Rome, I usually look/buy at http://www.musicstorekoeln.de/index.php

    In your experience, in the low-middle price, better Warwick - Gallien Krueger or Hartke??

    I'd take the warwick, easily. I like GK but the power output can't be compared. You say you've played and liked both, so go with what will give you more options.

    On music store they have a GK 700 RBII for €665,50 an RBH €704,09 That almost 400 above the budget. But I think that it would be a better option. Thats also with Irish tax. I don't know hwere your located so it could be different.

    On www.thomann.de delivery is only €15 regardless of what you order so that might be a good alternative.
    I've tried this rig and its nice and seemed quite loud. A further RBH 2x10 or 4x10 could be added when you get a few more €€ down the line. I do think it would be worth saving the extra few quid to get it.

    U are right brother probably I'll take

    gallien krueger 700 RB II 480w 4om + 410 BLX 400w 8om+ 115 BLX 150w 8om = 1150 eur.

    I always put a 15 cone 'cose 10" always sems a little dry I hope to add some low freq in this way??
  6. Rome is about 1717.82 kilometers from Groningen. A bit too far to see if you like my rig enough to buy it. That's a pity.
    I don't know any of the ones you mention. I played three different Trace models the last fifteen year's.

    when I was younger I went very often to Amsterdam, by plane, by car, by thumb through , to see flowers off course; but now i'm a sober man. Only for curiosity, what's the price of your nice Trace (mybe in memory of old times a visit to Groningen.... :smug: )

    combo GK 400RB115 + cab GK 210BLX = around 1000 euros.
    Great config, for sound and power (very confortable in a jazz/funk/blues band ) :bassist:
