GK Goldline head?

  2. IIRC,The Goldline series is a budget line produced overseas for G.C./M.F.

    Here is Bob Gallien's reply to a member who had blown a 15" Goldline speaker by playing a synth effect with his 700RB.

    The Glodline 115 is a good cabinet but it is not intended to go with the very high current 700RB which is strictly a pro head. A better match available at GC would be the Neo115(400W), Neo410 (800W) or Neo212 (400W). All these cabinets accomodate the Horn Bi-Amp feature from the 700RB as well.

    As you can see, Bob is not recommending it very heartily for pro use.

    I actually own the head. I know I got the first batch because up until that point I'd never seen it before in my life and because the GK logo on mine is not gold/mustard colored but negative gold on black. It sounds great and was bought at GC. Its Plenty loud and looks way cool. Its actually my first GK.

    I just became a member to get info on amps. I have the GK 500 Goldline, and have had problems with it. My first 500 was returned after issues with a crackle that I was unable to find the source of. GC allowed me to set up in the store and play around mixing heads and speakers with my usual set up. GC replaced my 500 telling me they tought it was a bad crossover. The problem seemed to be fixed until today when the crackle showed up again six months after swapping out the 500 head. I don'tknow what to do. I am looking at Markbass as well. I use the Goldline 4x10, and am very happy wth that, but the head has caused me too much frustration.

    The only difference is if you use distortion. The good solid states are a blend of artificial distortion and overdriven components that create square waves and odd harmonic resonances rather than even.

    If you don't like the back line, this head isn't going to be much better. You'll be better off finding something else for your setup. The cheaper GK stuff doesn't do bi-amping anyways, so you aren't missing out on anything regardless of which head you run.
