    Can you get the same GK-sound from the Backline head line out (direct out) as from the RB head line out (direct out)? Is the sound similar or is there any difference?
    I am going to use it for recording.
     
  2. the preamp is essentially the same as the pro heads. It just doesn't have the 4/5 string button or the presence control. The overdrive channel is the same as the 2001 without the eq section.

    GK also makes a dedicated preamp that is identical to the one in the 2001RB if you are looking for a DI or Pre/Power setup and want that GK sound.
