    I down to my last two amps to go with my Ampeg 4x10 the Peavey Max 700 and the GK 700RB II. I have one question and that is contour controls. I am beginner and not to understand how these controls work, and I am asking everyone here how they work, and which one is the better. :bassist:
  2. The contour cuts mids and boosts the highs, or it may just cut the mids on some. It makes the amp sound warmer in most cases. Between those two amps I'd take the 700rb II and an 8ohm cab, or a couple of 8ohm cabs. I own a Firebass 700 (same as Max 700) and its a good amp, but the weight gets old real fast. If you want the most power and the option to run any cab or cab combo, get the Max 700. BTW you can get a GK 1001rb-II for the same price that the 700rb-II is listed at most places at www.rmcaudio.com
