    so, the guy who's promoting our show says he's got GK SB 810.

    Wut?:confused:

    can't find anything like that on the interwebz.
     
  2. IIRC G-K made two pro level 810's the RBX 810 and the NEO 810, there was also IIRC a GLX 810 made for G.C. etal (MF exc of Bain Capital).

    Affirmative, the Goldline cabs did have an 8x10 model


    An SB though, OP? I could have sworn they had a BLX 8x10 as well, but I may be mistaken. Here's to hoping he's talking about one of the pro cabs lol

    sorry for the delay, but I tried to contact the and askhim is it the SBX series.

    He's still not replying, but let's assume it is.

    Is it OK?
    I play Ampeg SVT810E - is this GK much different?

    the GK is probably ported unlike the Ampeg
     
  7. Nope the 115 was the only ported SBX cab. All other SBX cabs were sealed.

    If the sbx810 is anything like the sbx410, you'll love it. The 410 was my favorite cab. I only got rid of it because I got tired of the near 100 pound weight. Amazing tone.

    I have 2 - 410SBX+ cabs (the "+" cabs are 800w/8ohm each vs the regular SBX 400W cabs) that I use as my "810" stack for bigger or outdoor gigs.

    They're sealed cabs, 11 ply birch plywood and the sound great!
    I run them with the horns turned down all the way. Run them with a LMII (500w/4ohm) and they kick a$$

    They show up used on guitar center's site for around $250-300.

    There's one for sale here on TB but for pickup only in LA.

    Im pretty sure he is talking about the SBX 810 I had a couple 410 SBX plus cabs that were great, but I prefer ported 410s

    I see 410 SBX plus cabs pretty often, a pair of those would get the job done. I have only come across one 810 SBX that I remember.
