I have the worst luck with bass amps. This last show. My Trace Elliot head fried and blew my Avatar 4x10 and Eden 1x15XLT. Holy Mother of Crap was I pissed. I am out an entire full stack. The Eden isn't even warranty because I had to replace the speaker previously due to my Trace frying the coil. I've spent over $400 fixing the Trace over the years and I bought it for $600. There is no way in hell I'm fixing it again. And I've had to replace the Eden speaker (which I am not even that impressed with) before and do not want to again. So in a rash of impuslive necessity (?) I bought the following: The new GK 1001RB II 700watts and a Ampeg 810E I am in debt up to my ears but with so many shows comming up I need something reliable and I hope this will be my last amp purchase for a LONG LONG time. wheeeew.
