    Finally landed IMO what is the greatest combo amp ever made.
    I had the mb500 and neo 4x10 that i found at a great deal and was made an offer i couldnt refuse.
    I loved the setup but always wanted to own another another one of these as i had the first version many years ago.
    Power, multiple speakers, and lightweight.
    Such a damn good amp!
    But since our loonie has fallen and usa gear is ridiculous here, $1200+13% tax!
    I jumped on this and made the long drive into Toronto and got it.
    $600 and since i sold the other setup for a big profit i now have power, portability, and hundreds of dollars in my pocket. :D
    Edit. Anyone know to remove grill? Dont want to ruin it.

    Just realized last night the only gripe i had with my old model was fixed with a properly placed xlr output :thumbsup:
    About time haha.

    @shawshank72 , what settings do you like to use? I just got this same combo, plus the extention cab about a month ago. Just curious how others like to set theirs.
    The few times I've been able to fire mine up I've been setting the eq to "GK flat"ish, contour off, limiter and horns on.
    Then I tweak my bass from there. (Nordstrand 3 band eq with push pull mids pot)

    Mid eleven
    Low mid one
    Bass one
    Boost ten
    Master nine
    No limiter or horn
    Got a boost pedal (always on)
    HPF set at about 30Hz

    Last night went great
    Horn off
    Limiter on
    Contour off
    Gain 10 oclock
    Volume noon
    Treble 11
    HiMid 10
    Low mid 1
    Bass 12
    Sounded full and punchy
    My other band im sure will change things as they play in a smaller room with a loud drummer.

    What about the boost? Where was he set at? Pretty easy to carry too:D Drummer loaded mine out the other night and made a comment about the bass amp being lighter than the guitar amp, first time I've ever heard that out loud.

    Sort of, but I prefer head and cabs over combos.

    Really thinking about ditching my MB800 head and CX410 cab and getting one of these bad boys.

    I ditched my mb500 and neo 4x10.
    Bought it at a cheap price and was made an offer i couldnt refuse.
    I loved it but this amp being so compact and ability to have amp in one hand and bass in the other is priceless.
    And i still get 500w into a 2x12.
