    Here she is! GK 1001RB with 2 4x10 RBH cabs. I won't go into details, because someone said that me getting artist deals were rubbing it in the "regular guys'" faces. That isn't my intent. I consider you guys like family, and I thought you shared good news with close friends. If this seems like bragging, then I apologize. I'm a signed artist and some companies feel that you'd help give their gear exposure if you play it. Just make sure that you REALLY believe in the gear. That's how it is. It was between 2 companies, and I remember how durable my RB800 was, so I went with GK.

    Prior GK owner here. Definitely no slouches, they. Good stuff, even though I think their cabs are underrated. Good to see you're rockin' a rig of doom as well.

    Can we hear who the other company was? C'monnnnnn! ;)

    Thanks. First of all, I went with 2 4x10's because both handles 800 watts each, and the head brings 700+ watts to the table. The 115 handles about 400 or 500 watts, and I didn't want the head to damage the cab. As for the other company, it was really a toss up, but for history's sake, I REALLY liked GK. Like I said, that 800RB was a tank. The BP reveiw didn't hurt either. As for choices, I could have gotten any rig. Dan Elliot and his wife were amazing to work with.
