Just received my GK MB212-II this afternoon. I had an MB210 which worked out well at practice and church for a year or so, but I wasn't overly confident pushing it in higher volume situations. Given the reliability issues some had been experiencing I decided to give it the heave ho last month. After reading how Robert Gallien has been personally taking care of his customers and the fact that GK brought production back to the U.S. for the new series, (and the high marks MoeGBeaner gave for his 212), I decided to jump back in with both feet. I have band practice Thursday and a loud club gig, (two half stacks and a drummer), on Friday. Should have a pretty good idea of what this puppy can do by the weekend. Will give the full report.
