    I currently have an Eden WT-600, I like it, but I hate stereo plug outputs.
    I was wondering how a GK would stack up against it, a 1001rb is what would fit my power needs.

    Anyone have any good opinions on these heads? They seem pretty popular.

    I think you will find the Eden warmer and a bit more musical, but what that is is very relative to what you are doing and trying to do with YOUR music...We have all heard people getting effective tone out of gear we would not even consider using!! I would bring YOUR cab, amp and bass into the music store and spend as long as you need contrasting and compairing them, and any other amps they have on hand..also check with some sound companies, maybe they have one you can "demo" for a weekend for a nominal fee, if you like it they might just sell you that one and deduct the rental off the top of the price!!
    Good Luck!!

    The GK has a flatter sound overall. The Eden is warmer and thicker in the low end and more colored overall. Its also got a little more slam in the pants than the GK. (I had a WT800 though, not a 600) The Eden was overall a great amp, but I prefer the GK, its a bit more open sounding. Its been compared to the Thunderfunk, but I haven't made that comparison my self.

    I think I would like something with a little less colour, or maybe just a different kind of colouring. I should look at the mesa big block as well probably.
