Straight from the horses mouth
Cross yer fingers. Can't wait for the ML250 or the Neo 410.
Oooh, Im liking the Neo 410. I bet thats going to be a killer cab. Their Neo line is great sounding especially for the price. I really like my Neo 112.
I can't wait to tell my guitar friends about the 250ML.
So far it's a MAYBE.
Point well taken. Right now I have an old 250ML that belongs to my brother-in-law. He gave it to me because it was in need of repair. I fixed what I could find that was broken -- it had some mechanical damage from heavy abuse. Now it works but breaks up at high volumes and I have not gotten around to finding the (probably) loose connection. But I have told my guitar playing friends about this amp, and they are all intrigued by the concept.
imagine they release the tube-preamp as a standalone preamp. it'll go great with my 1001RB-II, don't you think?
I'd like to subscribe to this thread.
A new Neo 4x10 from GK? Hmmm....very interesting!
Any details from anyone?
I'll be mighty-dissapointed the day GK jumps on the tube-bandwagon. They're Solid State, and proud of it! ..right?
And that question was also addressed by BigGroove (Gene at Gallien)
Hey, easy now. Everybody just relax... It's just a tube preamp, but if Bob wanted to turn his attention towards tubes altogether I personally feel some competitors would not be happy to see the genius nosing around in their field!
It's gonna be very cool to say the least...
I know that a lot of people front their GK's with tube pre's, and lose that signature GK sound, so when Bob Gallien found out about this, he realized a tube pre in a GK would be perfect!
Think of it, tube overdrive, solid state power section meaning lots of power, and lightweight. Can't go wrong.
been done already,i think they should stay away from tubes personally.I would like to see a new
on-off switch on the 1001rb-2,i don't think i am to crazy about the button that's on there,i like a big old
mesa boogie bass 400 type,on-off.I just bought a gk1001rb-2 and a neo 2-12, and i am picking up a neo 115.
oh,and i still have my old gk 200mb from 1986,no speaker in it.
So hang on, the tupe-preamp that's mentioned, is that going to be stand alone or incoorporated into a head?
GK don't need no tubes.
(I don't dislike tubes, I also own a Mesa and a '73 SVT)
That would seriously be the only amp I ever needed. Hopefully the tube side can get a really fat and nasty tone. This is the best amp news I have heard in a long time.
I was just thinking of getting a Neo 2x12. I think I'll have to wait now. What is the estimated price on the ML250? My guitarist will jump ontop of that. He likes my 1001RB, and sometimes plays his guitar into it. He likes the warmth of it. And, yes, GK has stuck to solid-state amps in the past few years. All of their amp heads are the warmest amps besides tube amps you can find, in my opinion.
Having cruised the GK web site and its forum section, I'm very interested in hearing about the updated 1001RB-II and the Neo 410. If the Neo 410 is available in a 4 ohm version, that would be a great one cab, club gig set-up!
