    We have a Forum for Amps. It is called Amps. This Forum is for Basses.

    This is the second thread of yours that I have had to move. In the future, before posting a new thread, decide which forum it should be in, and put it in the appropriate one.

    Thank you.

    Moved.

    For some crazy reason, this looks to me to be the amp forum, or I'm I missing something?

    I brought this amp, and the KG1001RB 2x10 home with me for an A/B comparison. I really wanted to like the Backline 15, since it was more than half the price. I also have a Carvin 100-15, which should have been similar in performance. I couldn't get the backline to go low at all without sounded seriously overworked. If I cranked it up, it would bark at me. At super low volumes, it wasn't bad. I tried for 4 hours to get that thing to sound good, but I just couldn't get it to work. It very well might have been my EDA900 going through it though. It has a funky bottom end anyhow, but both the Carvin and the GK1001RB processes it very well. For the money, I would get the Carvin-200 or something similar. Or try it with another bass and see what you feel about it.

  11. Be sure to check out the GK 400RB-115 combo. It'll give you the 1001 tone but for less money.
