    Does anyone have any experience with the G-K 115LB metal bass cabinet from the early '90s? It was the speaker cab counterpart to the 1200CEB combo, both of which had an Electro-Voice EVM15B speaker and four front ports, one in each corner of the cabinet, which was almost identical in size to the Bag End S15-D and S15X-D cabs. If so, and you also have experience with the Bag End cabs, how did the old G-K compare? I've got some old G-K brochures with this and other metal guitar cabs and was always curious about them.

    I saw that one on eBay as well.

    I've never played one but (although curious as well) The rattle factor has to be there.
    Maybe not.

    hmmm

    In matter of fact I have owned a Gallien-Krueger 115LB from 1989 on which I used together with the Gallien-Krueger 1200SEB.
    It is a great little cabinet, no undesired by-noises (no rattle etc.), it handles 200Watts (8 Ohm) easily and has the distinct sound characteristics of the EVM 15 B speaker.
    I had mine adapted to also fit a Speakon connector. It is (almost) indestructible and easy to handle because of it's size and reasonable weight (19 kg / 41.9 lbs).
    An idea others might also be able to use is that I often placed the cabinet on a keyboard stand, to have the sound closer to me. As I had my bass also put through the PA, I would have my stack perfectly aligned as a personal monitor.
    It has served me well for many years, both for electrical- as double bass, but as I am no longer a professional bass player, it sits idle now.
    If anybody is interested, you may contact me.
