Seems like chocolate and peanut butter. Do they go well together?
*Tumbleweed blows by...*
I used a GK1001RBII through an Aguilar 212 for about a year. I thought it was a good combination. The GK was a powerful, clean sounding amp, and the Aggie added a bit of booty.
Can't imagine it wouldn't sound very good. The GK is tight and punchy, could be a good match. Everytime I power up my GK1001-II I smile a little and it never gets old.
I used to run a 400RB-III into a GS410.
It was my primary setup for probably 6 to 8 months. I still kick myself for selling it. Plus, I'm ampless now (*sigh, shakes head).
Here's my take on GK and Aguilar used together:
It's phenominal. The 400RBIII and the 410 were very crisp and hi-fi sounding, but still gave you that signature growl when you wanted it. Plus the lows and highs are just outstanding. I'm not much of a mids guy for some reason. Another thing is, I NEVER had trouble keeping up with my band during practice or gigs. EVER. In fact, I had to turn down sometimes. Both of the guitarists used Marshall 1/2-stacks. I mean, if they REALLY cranked it I'd be in a spot... but when do they really use it much past 9 anyway?
The last thing that I have to say is that people other than myself, bandmates, or fellow musicians realized the quality of the sound. I constanly recieved comments on the sound of my amp. My brother, who brags about his ability to play the kazoo, said it was probably the best sounding bass amp he ever heard; and that he could always feel my playing in his chest through that amp.
So yeah. GK + Aguilar = No need for cowbell.
EDIT: I suck at reviewing gear. If you want something that makes sense: It was cool.
Did you find that the GK made up for mids that the Aggie lacked?
