I tried out one of these combos today in GC and was pretty impressed! I don't remember the older 1001/210 sounding this good. The speakers have stayed the same, no doubt. I am wondering if the new 1001 amp version is really making the difference, or if I just am hearing the cabinet differently now. It is too bulky & heavy for my tastes, but a 210 RBH cab and 1001 head is a faily light package if they are bought separately.
