Ok, LOTS of really cool people in this business we love, that of all things bass. Made some good , and very good friends. A couple are like brothers to me. Now, Jorg and I have met at NAMM and I was always impressed with his demeanor and phylosophy. The man is as straight up as they come. Just a real pleasure to deal with. One thing about Jorg.. he never tries to sell you the biggest priciest cab. He suggests the one he thinks is right for YOUR needs. Having said that, and experiencing the joy and fun of carrying various cabs up and down a flight of stairs ( this is as of 3/4 months ago ) it really makes you want to find something light and portable but who wants to give up tone and volume on a gig? I don't! So I contacted Jorg about the cabs. He suggested the 1012. It just arrived ( well, I had to hunt it down from fedex, but.. ) and I just plugged it in to see ( hear ) what this is all about. This cab puts out TONS of tone regardless how small and light it is. With my gk1001rbII, it sounds fantastic. Punchy, loud, clean and USABLE. Taking it on a medium to large size gig tomorrow eve. We'll see how it performs, but my buddy who was here when I fired her up ( he's a hardcore Sadowsky Bergantino guy ) had to stop, put his stuff down and come over and check it out. I put some juice thru it ( sorry neighbors , heck they work with Toni Braxton ) and it gave back everything I put into it. I am very hyped about this cab because if it sounds this good on a gig, I solved my portability and tone problems. So just wanted to say thanks, Jorg and all those who had reviews and enticed me to try one of these. So far, it's a heck of a cab!
