    Just picked this up yesterday. GK MB500 paired with a Phil Jones Compact 8 cab (800w, 4ohm, 8x5" drivers!)

    Let me tell you I was mega skeptical of the PJ cab and it's advertised power and volume. I literally called every Phil jones dealer in Australia and asked to speak with their bass reps about them to voice my skepticism and ask for advice...and WOW I am blown away...this could easily keep up with a loud band and then some! The bottom end is defined and tight and cab has a really quick response.

    As for the MB500, we all know what it does smile2.gif Clean GK tone and headroom for days.

    Very clean, clear, articulate and hi fi with punch. Can go Boom too. Nice for gigs and rehearsals where space is tight and is such a great conversation piece. Peeps are always amazed at what comes out of this config.
