    I ordered the new GK MB212 the other day. Now I'm stuck waiting for GK to fill their orders to retailers (I bought mine from M123). I was unable to find one locally, but one shop did have the 210. I was very impressed. I didn't think it too dangerous a leap to get the 212 without playing it. My last cab was a 212 and I loved it (Ampeg PortaBass 212 with upgraded neo speakers). The GK is even lighter, though, and includes the head! I'm beyond excited right now. Anyone else sharing my pain right now?

    Just a heads up to any other potential buyers: I got a great deal at M123 by getting a price match from another site. rmcaudiodirect.com has the amp for the standard price of $700, but they also have an online coupon for 10% off orders over $250. I'd never heard of them before, so I went to M123 and asked for a price match. They gave me $619 w/free shipping. My endless searching of the intarwebz saved me $80. Sweet.

    I love when Mr. Gallien chimes in... he's always so straight and to the point, never wasting unnecessary words. I think that mentality has spilled over to his amps, in a very, very good way!

    Just another thought, as long as I have your attention. When is the MB212 going to appear on the website? The 210 and 115 got a blip in the new for '09 section. I'm betting that might be lower priority than actually getting the amps out to the stores.

    I bought my GK112-II NEO site unseen, never regretted it. I will be buying another.

    I bought my MB 210 from RMC. Nice company to do business with. I'll use them again. I was getting a price on a Shure SM58 beta mike on line from them and just closed the browser. I get a phone call from them later that day. They were having some problem with their on line ordering and were just checking to see if I had tried and failed to order on line. When I told them I was just getting a price and that it'll be a month or so before I order they apologized for disturbing me (which they did not). I like doing business with companies that give good customer service. That showed me a lot about their customer service.

    Also if this is your first GK you'll love their customer service, another great company to deal with.
     
  10. I can't wait to get this home and check it out. I ordered it from our local music store on 3-1-10. They said I should expect it on 3-22-10, but I was pleasantly suprised when I got the call today. I'll report back after checking it out.
    Thanks - Todd

    Too late now but if you called RMC Audio or used the "Old school quote" system you would have saved more than $80.00 from RMC Audio!

  14. I've got a GK MB210 coming from Musicians Friend. They said Monday and now it says Wednesday. I'm going NUTS!!! Can't wait to be able to hold it with my pinkie finger like Tom Bowlus.

    I believe RAG said the MB combos are shipping this week and IIRC that included the MB112.

    I played the 212 @ NAMM & it's REALLY worth any wait~ maybe Tom can pinky heft the 212 too! Lol
     
  18. Quit rubbing it in. That's evil.:scowl: :D

    Nice! Just what I want to hear. I bought it because I needed something to be able to heave ho into the back seat of my Honda Accord without doing any more damage to the interior with the 410 and 212 cabs I own. I've been getting a lot of pop up gigs with different bands here lately. I need something that will compete with loud guitarists and drummers without needing hernia surgery afterwards. I'm thinking I hit the jackpot here.:bassist:

    Today was a good day. I found out (thanks to RAG) my amp should be coming very soon. I also received the rest of my order: a battery tester and a padded keyboard bag. The bag is going to serve as my new pedalboard home. I've outgrown my current board (17x14) and, rather than building one slightly bigger, I'm gonna go quite a bit bigger. The new board will probably be 30x14. But, that's a topic for another thread and another day.

    I'll post a review here once I get the new amp.
