since i turned 40, i started developing sensitivities and allergies, and i never know when some will pop up. not long ago, i picked up a used GK 112, and first off i was loving it. it sounded just great - in fact, it delivered the sound i hear in my head when i play while making my carvin BX250 sound better. it also fit perfectly in the space i wanted it to sit in. after a few days, i started having breathing problems - first a sore throat, then a worse sore throat, runny nose and finally tightness and wheezing in my chest that got worse. i've gone through this a few times, notably when ikea changed their billy bookcases (btw, ikea stepped up to the plate, got the bookcase out of my house in hours when i reported the problem to them and refunded me quickly). but never with gear. i can't know for sure it's the cab - we had a few new things in our house at that time including a huge piece of mahogany my husband got to make me a through neck. we got the wood out of the house and bagged up everything else new including the cab. and it's come time to start unbagging things, one at a time. i REALLY want the problem to not be my GK cab, as love everything about the tone, weight and dimensions, and i also don't want the hassle of selling it. hopefully it'll be fine, but if the problem is the cab, there's no way to know if the problem is the GK glue or other components or if i'm reacting to something in the previous owner's storage. i've spent plenty of time in stores around GK gear, but it took me days with it - or whatever the problem is - in the house to get sick. so spending times in stores wouldn't be enough time for the problem to arise. thanks for "listening" - i guess i needed to vent. the first time i had this issue, i got really really ill from it before i figured out on my own it had to be an allergy or sensitivity (3 doctors told me i had developed asthma, but they were wrong). it took me the better part of a year to recover. so i'm scared to unwrap the cab. but there's no sense in having it here, wrapped in plastic with me playing through my fender bronco 40. anyone else here ever have allergies to your gear?
