    Just got back from Guitar Center and picked up my new 1001RB-II. The great part. I got it for $550 plus tax. Of course they couldn't find the speakon cable and warranty card, so I gotta go back from them.

    Its a monster through my Genz 6x10. I've still gotta get used to the controls, but there is plenty of volume of clean sound. I'm still trying to sell my Genz so I can get a new GK 410RBH for $400.

    Congrats! I picked one up this Saturday too ;) It's a killer amp -- I'm running mine through an Acme B-1.

    $550?! Was that the price or did you bargain? Pushes your cab with no problem?

    I know the assistant manager, so he is always giving me good deals on things.

    It sounds great with the cab. The sound is alittle warmer than I'd like, but I'm getting a GK 410 once I sell this 6x10

    Sweet deal! In your opinion, does it sound better than an 800RB? I heard somewhere the voicing of the two amps is different. Or something.

    I went to GC on Monday for the "Big Independence Day Closeout Sale" and was floored to see a brand new 1001RB-II 2x10 combo for $700!!!!!

    I was depressed the rest of the evening.... I can't afford it right now. :crying:

    Oh well.
