GK400RB for $200 Cdn ($150 US). Go for it?

  1. I've been checking out the Buy&Sell. I saw a GK400RB head for $200 obo. I'm not sure what the condition is nor whether it's still available.

    Should I try and snag it? I have my Yorkville combo/extension that I'm happy with. They pump out almost the same amount of power. I've never played through a GK rig before.

    I have the GK400 head and I love it. But they have been around for a long time so it is important to know how old it is. Also I would say that $200 is a good price but it is not amazing. While I think it would be hard to do better then that, I also think that you will be able to find another one at that same price sometime in the future. Hope that helps.

    Go for it. $150 dollars American is a good price for that amp, so long as it's in decent shape.

    My Gk400 is plenty loud and makes my very sub-par bass sound excellent. With some fiddling, you can find many different sounds from it too. (the distortion you get when you turn the volume knob up is very fun - i think that flea uses this disto when playing 'Around the World' and his solos before the song, as he uses GK) I payed US$430.00 for a new one and I am happy with it.

    Snag it if you can afford it comfortably and without selling anything else. (and only if the amp is in decent condition) $150 sounds good, but I don't know much about online buying/selling, I'd be careful. Best of luck.

    I found a used 400R (don't know how old, but it looks like the 70s) at my local usic go round for $200. It's a little beat up, but vintage.
