    Gallien + Krueger + Schroeder = Wunderbar!

    I have a perfectly serviceable Peavey 115 BX to pair with the 800RB I just acquired (correcting an historical error), but I feel like 1x15 isn’t quite cutting it. I lugged around 2x15s and 4x10s once upon a time and have little desire to maneuver anything that size in my space (the weight’s no picnic, either, but getting in and out of my practice space is my primary concern). Just as I decided a modern 2x12 seemed a likely solution, @retrosynth posted this one and I pounced.

    I’m glad I did. The size, weight, and wedge shape suit my space perfectly, and it sounds just like the mighty Germanic warrior of old I imagine when I say “Gallien-Krueger-Schroeder”—I get all the same lows and mids with better highs and overall definition. I think I’m set for instruments and amplification (really! looking to sell some stuff and not really to buy anything but a pedalboard), but if I ever decide to get a newer head that pumps out a majillion watts, this cab could handle it.

    Ja! This’ll do :cool:

  2. It needs to be played by Gunter Nezhoda to be THE most Teutonic-sounding rig. ;)

    My #1 (Fender Precision) adds to the Californianness of this rig, if not the Germanness. Perhaps it's time for me to give Warwicks another look.
