    Hi,

    Has anyone 'not' have the solder joint problem with the original 1001RB (or any original GK head for that matter). I bought a used 800RB that went dead on me after the third job at just stage monitoring level. I'm seeing some good deals on a few 1001RB's lately and was just wondering if I should just bite it and go with new 1001RB or new 700RB.

    I've owned and gigged a 700rb and 1001rb for about 3 years now with absolutely zero issues. I'm very happy with them (and so is my back.)

    Thanks for the info. My back is also my primary reason for wanting an 18 lb amp.
